Certified Mechanics Car Care Center owner and operator John Mason delivers high quality automotive workmanship at fair, competitive prices.
Certified Mechanics Car Care Center is located in historic Florence Park, is owned and operated by John Mason, and has served Tulsans for the past 31 years. They have been at their current location, one block west of Harvard on 21st Street, for 25 years. John’s employee, ASE Certified Advanced Level Specialist Wayne Wilson, has been with Certified Mechanics for 20 years. Together, John and Wayne represent decades of automotive experience and maintain the highest level of integrity as they provide personalized automotive repair and services for your American and Asian cars, SUVs, minivans and trucks.
“The function of an engine is, basically, the same as it’s always been,” says John. “The difference in providing automotive service today is that so often the problems are unique to specific makes and models.” Diagnosing an engine problem today requires inspection and testing with specialized equipment by a skilled professional who understands what tests need to be performed, plus the knowledge to interpret the results and make the proper diagnosis and repair.
“We believe excellent customer communication is the key to making a successful repair. Wayne and I always do our best to fully explain the cause of the issue to the customer and then offer our recommended symptom-based service that will eliminate the problem.” If a vehicle has more than one issue needing attention, but the customer elects not to have them all done at once, Certified Mechanics prioritizes the recommended repairs and works with the customer to complete the services to fit their time frame.
All auto manufacturer recommended maintenance services are performed by Certified Mechanics Car Care Center, and John can tell you the exact services and frequency recommended for your specific vehicle. The most recurring services for newer cars are changing the oil and rotating the tires, customarily every 5,000 to 10,000 miles, depending upon the manufacturer. “We use only manufacturer recommended motor oils, which is critical in today’s variable valve timing engines to maintain optimum performance,” says John.
John and Wayne work hard to keep each customer informed and involved about the repair of their vehicle and always speak candidly about the services needed. Certified Mechanics Car Care is a full-service shop and has done business with the same quality parts suppliers for decades. They have earned a reputation for delivering high quality workmanship at fair, competitive prices.
