What We Love About Servicing Hybrids

What We Love About Servicing Hybrids

At Robert’s Collision & Repair in Monterey, it’s well known that we are passionate about the work we do, whether it’s detailing, auto body, or auto repair and service. We love it all! But did you know that we also truly enjoy the work we do when we service hybrids? Anything that supports minimizing our carbon footprint, we support! We also recognize that while it is the future, the future is now and we are committed to staying on top of whatever we need to in order to continue to provide our customers with the very best in service under the hood and across the counter.  Another fun aspect about hybrids is they have two separate power systems.

It’s not just Toyota in the hybrid game anymore: Ford, Chevy, Hyundai, Honda, and the list is quite long.  It’s also not just l ... read more

Why Choose a Career in the Automotive Repair Industry

Why Choose a Career in the Automotive Repair Industry

We live in a time when it’s getting difficult to find a good auto mechanic or plumber or other tradespersons. Why is this? As a culture, we’ve always pushed our kiddos into pursuing a college education, and we’ve downplayed the intellectual abilities of anyone pursuing a career in the trades. If you took auto shop or woodworking in high school, it was usually because you were told that you weren’t smart enough to take college-level classes. This line of thinking is killing the trades even though we need qualified people to fill these roles just as much today as always. If you stop and think about it, don’t you want a smart auto mechanic? Of COURSE you do! We all do! There is a slow shift in our country’s perspective on intelligence. Considering that all intelligence tests were designed to test someone’s intelligence based on what the average white adult male knows, we’ve definitely missed the mark on actual intelligence.

There are many ways, however, we can reduce the likelihood of an accident.   A lot of it is common sense, but we all know that it’s not a bad thing to be reminded of even some of the most obvious ones:     Don’t drive distracted: this means no texting, no phone chatting, don’t look up your next destination on your GPS, no eating, no searching for your favorite radio station. Leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle ahead of you. Follow the 3-second rule under normal driving condition, giving yourself a full 3 seconds between you and the car ahead. During wet or frosty times, or when pulling a trailer, give yourself at l ... read more
