Are you an ASE certified tech? If not why are you pointing fingers. I just happen to be one and I take much pride in my work and I would just love to see one of those "old guy under a backyard garage roof" diagnose a new car with a no code driveability problem.
As soon as someone known nothing or not much about something that someone else does, they call that person a RIP OFF.... Why????
I would love to say more about what you have said, But Jon would not like what I would say to you. YOU and people like you are the reason that auto repair and auto techs have such a bad name. You spread ignorance and hate for others.
As a auto technician I totally agree. I worked at the dealership for years and currently at an independent shop. I challenge ANYONE that just does hot rods and race cars as a hobby to take a shot at making a good living working on modern cars. Theres no comparison. You would most likely screw up 3 or 4 cars and get canned. Im not trying to step on toes here Im just stating a fact. I will admit there are some new guys and dummies out there working in shops and dealerships. Ive worked with a few. As far as ASE goes my own personal thoughts are is that being ASE certified means your able to study a book and pass a test and thats it. I think its a money racket. IMHO. Ed Cannon........ ASE Master tech.
