Blue Seal Certified

This level of certification expands on the rigorous requirements that AAA certification demands.

Although there are minimums to meet, we don’t stop there because we realize that in order to provide the expert auto service our customers deserve, our staff must stay up to date with with technology, tooling, and knowledge. We strive to achieve this through a combination of attending training classes, in service learning and knowledge transfer among our technicians in and around the shop, and attending industry events which are conducive in supporting our mission & goals. It’s through these efforts that help us focus consistantly on exceeding program requirements.

Please consider looking at the pool of automotive service centers to choose from, there are approximately 367 AAA Certified Service Centers within the AAA Southern California system, and according to ASE’s Blue Seal Certified Shop Locator, there are less than 50 public service locations in all of Southern California. We are the only ASE Blue Seal Certified Auto Service Center in Claremont.

We are proud to have achieved this level of recognition and hope that you will consider us as your auto service provider.

Vehicle Service

What does your vehicle need to stay in service?

Simple oil changes are a thing of the past, vehicle’s should be treated like aircraft by thoroughly inspecting various vehicle systems during each service visit. This helps to prevent breakdowns by maintaining the vehicle to a road worthy level. We will help you understand everything your vehicle needs so you can enjoy many years of dependable service.

Preventative Maintenance

Looking back over the past seven or so years it’s clear, the automakers are building better vehicles. The average age of an automobile on the road in North America is nearly twelve years old. The automakers would like to get you into another new vehicle well within that cycle. Let us help you maintain your vehicle so that it provides you with appreciable service above and beyond 12 years 200k miles.


For most people, vehicles are a significant investment and you should expect a decent return. We are here to help you keep that vehicle reliable for many years to come so that your overall cost-per-mile makes you smile 😉

Honest, Hardworking, and very Friendly. I have taken my car here a few times and they always do a great job. I have an older high mileage car and they keep it running like new. I recommend this place to my friends and coworkers. Angela K.

I had a great experience. I was able to not only get all my automotive questions answered, but I felt welcome and very well taken care of. The folks at Connie and Dick's were very hospitable and we're accommodating with the price. I had a friendly and an overall excellent experience. I highly recommend everyone to come to Connie and Dick's for all their automotive needs.
