Brad Zara, president of Zara’s Collision Center, announced that the facility has been recognized by Ford Motor Co. as a collision repair facility certified by Assured Performance Collision Care.
Zara’s certifications by Assured Performance Collision Care also include Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, General Motors and Enterprise.
“We take great pride in the F-150 certification,” said Zara. “The 2015 F-150s have aluminum-alloy bodies and steel frames. Drivers in this area who own those vehicles now have a local, certified repair facility for their convenience should an accident occur.”
Less than 5 percent of collision repair shops nationally have met the Assured Performance criteria. The certification assures that Zara’s possesses the proper tools, equipment, facilities and trained staff required to repair vehicles to the manufacturers’ specifications so that the fit, finish, durability, value and safety of the vehicles are ensured.
Zara’s is the only Springfield, Ill.-area body shop to have the Assured Performance certifications, and the only facility in the Springfield area to be certified as a Honda Motor Co. ProFirst collision repair shop.
“This means that customers can expect a VIP, white-glove treatment backed by lifetime warranty of the repair,” said Zara.
