Most cars are pretty similar, but different makes and models require specialized equipment and training to ensure you get the high-quality, up-to-date repairs you need. If you drive a Honda, choosing a Honda certified body shop to complete your repairs is the best way to guarantee your vehicle is in good hands.

What is a ProFirst Certified Body Shop?

Honda’s ProFirst program ensures that certified body shops are held to the highest standards of service. Honda certified body shops are required to achieve an I-Car Gold Class Professional ranking or an equivalent verification. Technicians must also receive Honda-specific training to ensure expertise in Honda technology and repair methods, as well as undergo annual third-party verification. 

How to Find a Certified Body Shop in Your Area

Finding a reliable and qualified body shop to handle your repairs after a collision is essential. If your Honda has been damaged due to an accident, you can find Honda certified shops in your area through Honda’s website.

There are a variety of benefits to getting repairs done at a Honda certified collision repair shop. Here are a few of the main advantages:

Specialized Knowledge and Training

All ProFirst Certified auto body shops must earn an I-CAR Gold Class Professional, Verifacts VQ, or Verifacts Medallion. Mackin’s is an I-CAR Gold Class Professional business. The skilled technicians at our Honda certified locations have achieved the highest level of industry education. Not only must they complete I-CAR training, but they’re also required to complete Honda-specific training to ensure they’re up-to-date on Honda repair standards and technology.

Mackin’s and other Honda certified shops are equipped with the right parts, materials, and equipment to repair your vehicle quickly and properly so you can get back on the road!

Manufacturer Oversight and Annual Inspections

Every Honda certified auto body shop is required to maintain a high standard of cleanliness and professionalism.

They also carry out customer satisfaction surveys to ensure quality service.

Common Honda Repair Issues and How to Fix Them

Hondas are excellent vehicles. They generally have high reliability ratings and fewer recurring problems than most other manufacturers. But like all cars, Hondas are not impervious to damage. Whether due to a collision or wear and tear, eventually you’ll run into an issue with your car. 

Common issues we see with Hondas include:

  • Excessive oil consumption in older models
  • Paint peeling and bubbling
  • Transmission fluid leaks and other issues
  • Door locking problems
  • Premature brake wear

At Mackin’s, we can handle any and all Honda auto body repairs after a collision and get you and your vehicle back on the road!
