Happy Teachers Appreciation Day! Today, educators around the world are celebrated for sharing their knowledge zeal, and enthusiasm for life. Teachers provide more than a curriculum-based education with arduous homework assignments, pop-quizzes and exams. Teachers challenge us to become organized, accomplished and honest.
In school we’re educated about math and history- but along the way, we’re taught to be curious, determined, self-confident and autonomous. These lessons become attributes- characteristics that last a lifetime.
On this Teacher’s Appreciation Day, we would like to thank our members of the NJEA, the men and women who have dedicated their lives to influencing ours.

When scouting out a good mechanic, the very first thing to look for is a badge from The National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). An ASE certified mechanic worked hard to pass the boards and will be very proud to show off their credentials.
Basically, this certification guarantees your mechanic has the knowledge and skill to perform any type of repair you might need: from a quick, simple fix to the most technical and intricate problem. Moreover, a certificate proves reliability, dedication and great work ethic.
The Code of Ethics proposed by this non-profit institution requests mechanics produce nothing but first-class workmanship; dedicate themselves to lifelong learning; use only safe, manufacturer approved materials; work only on necessary repairs; treat each vehicle as their own; correct mistakes made by other mechanics/facilities without damaging their reputation; conduct themselves so as to maintain a respectable ASE reputation; always work in best interests of car owner, employer and themselves (taken from www.ase.com)
If you have found an ASE technician that abides by the Code of Ethics, still be wary of his employer. The ASE cannot regulate or monitor their mechanics, nor do they have control over their workplaces. A mechanic could prepare an honest estimate and the shop owner could take that quote, add an extra hour of labor, overcharge for a part and hand the bill to you.
You can avoid inflated prices with a Motorist’s Advocate. Mechanic-on-Duty can find a trustworthy technician and repair facility. MOD will audit the bill and check for accurate Labor Time and Fair Pricing and if need be MOD will help negotiate the price of the repair on your behalf. At MOD, the technicians are ASE certified, adhere strictly to the Code of Ethics and are not swayed through personal, professional or financial means…guaranteed.

I can understand how some people can take their personal health for granted. If there isn’t a problem; why worry? But not me- I’m different. I make conscious decisions everyday to live smart, healthy and strong. I prevent issues like obesity and illness through exercise, a nutritious diet, rest, regular doctors visits, and, of course, the occasional indulgence in a luxurious spa treatment. I am an expert in knowing what I can do to live a strong, happy and healthy life.
Still, I must admit, there are areas of my life which have been neglected. For instance, my sole means of transportation in life: to work, daycare, the gym and supermarket. Shouldn’t my car go out for a good drive, be properly fueled, receive regular check-ups and occasionally be pampered with a detail or wash?
Since I hooked up with Mechanic-on-Duty, I have become much more educated about my vehicle and what I can do to keep it long-lasting and strong. MOD would like me to share these two simple tips with you.
First and foremost, find a reputable, ASE accredited repair shop. Honest and credible mechanics will conduct all maintenance services according to manufacturer’s guidelines. They will look out for your best interests by documenting the type of repairs needed and when they ought to be completed.
Second, change your oil as often as the manufacturer recommends. Oil changes will keep engines strong and running for miles- even years longer. Oil changes are the least expensive and least time consuming form of routine car maintenance. Ironically, they are also the most overlooked and neglected form of car maintenance.
Thanks to Mechanic-on-Duty, I will make sure my vehicle is in the care of a trustworthy mechanic and receives regular oil changes. In following these two simple rules, you too can provide a better, longer life for your vehicle.
