Events and Announcements

Now Offering Digital Inspections!

Marx Auto Center has teamed up with a specialized digital company for auto repair shops.  The technicians have done away with paper multi-point inspection sheets and work orders, and have been recording everything digital on company issued IPads.  What does this mean for you?  You will now have the option of receiving a complete inspection report via email and/or text describing the condition of your car, along with pictures and videos so that you can completely understand the current issue, an issue that may arise in the future and what your options to resolve the problem may be, where ever you are!

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Ryan and Melissa on passing ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Certifications this May 2017.  Ryan has 5 certifications under his belt and is 3 tests away from becoming a Certified Master Technician, while Melissa became a Certified Automobile Service Consultant.  So proud of our team for always wanting to improve their job performance!

We Are Now A Napa Car Care Center!

Marx Auto Center, the leading independent automotive repair shop in the greater New Bedford area, has joined forces with the largest network of independent mechanics in North America and is now a NAPA Car Care Center. NAPA only considers the best shops in the area to join their worldwide network. Requirements to join this prestigious network include abiding by a strict code of ethics, employing ASE certified technicians, and honoring a 24 month/24,000 mile warranty.

As a NAPA Car Care Center, Marx Auto Center can now offer customers many benefits that were out of reach before. In addition to remaining independently owned and operated by the Rego family, Marx Auto Center can also offer peace of mind, nationwide! No matter where your travels take you, any qualifying repair will be covered at more than 14,000 locations nationwide – more than any other automotive brand.

An additional benefit of being a NAPA Car Care Center is our new partnership with the NAPA EasyPay credit card. Financing your repair is no longer a problem! Benefits include an instant credit decision, 6 month promotional financing, and an extended warranty on parts and labor to 36 months or 36,000 miles on qualifying repairs.

Today’s vehicles are more advanced than ever. The technology that goes into each vehicle is constantly changing, which means the methods and tools needed to repair them are constantly changing too. Employing ASE technicians, as you will find at Marx Auto Center, is a must. ASE certifications ensure that only the best mechanics, with the most up to date knowledge, have the essential skills to repair your car right the first time.
