Sal’s Auto & Truck Repair Earns Angie’s List Super Service Award for 3rd Year in a Row, Voted #1 Auto Repair Shop in Acton MA & Boston Regional GOLD
Award reflects Sal’s Auto consistent high level of customer service
Sal’s Auto & Truck Repair in Acton MA has earned the auto repair service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.
It was the third year in a row that Sal’s Auto received the coveted Award. This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.
“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the auto repair & service shops in the greater Boston area were able to do it.”
Angie’s List Super Service Award winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.
“Sal’s Auto is proud to receive the Angie’s List Super Service Awards for the 3rd year in a row, to be VOTED the #1 best Auto Service & Repair Shop in Acton MA, and to earn Regional GOLD in the Boston Metro West suburbs. These awards are particularly meaningful as we celebrate our 4th decade in business serving the Acton-Boxborough area. Special thanks to all our customers for trusting us with your auto service, repair & towing needs! “
Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.
For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.
“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”
About Angie’s List:
Angie's List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie's List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

Summer is around the corner in Acton MA & Middlesex West Boston. Planning a summer vacation or road-trip to the White Mountains of NH (up the Mount Washington Auto Road (pictured)), Cape Cod, Maine or beyond?
Is your car road-trip ready? Sal’s Auto & Truck Repair Acton MA recommends having your car checked out by a trusted local mechanic a week or more before your trip to keep you safe on the road this summer season!
With summer weather, it's time to roll down your windows and really ‘listen to your car’ or have someone else drive it to check out any car noises (you may be used to) to prevent a bigger problem down (or on) the road. Sal's Auto performs a Complimentary 60 point vehicle inspection with every service! Call Sal’s Auto & Truck Repair Acton MA for an appointment! Check our Sal's Auto Seasonal Car Care Specials.
A properly maintained car gets you where you want to go, and saves you money getting there. If you are planning to travel by car this summer season, take steps to avoid ending up on the side of the road. Make sure your car is in good shape so it won’t break down.
Here are 7 Tips for Safe Summer Car Travel courtesy of Money Talk News:
Overheating is the No. 1 cause of summer breakdowns, says the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). Make sure your radiator is adequately filled with coolant at the right concentration — usually a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze, but check your car’s specifications. Make sure your gauge doesn’t register too hot to avoid engine damage.
Your coolant is only as good as the hoses it flows through. Look for leaks, cracks, peeling or separation. If the hose is spongy or soft in even one section, consider replacing it before it fails and causes bigger problems.
The hotter the weather gets, the more important oil becomes. Oil helps prevent overheating by lubricating many moving parts. However, oil additives break down over time.
Hot weather can strain a battery. Test the battery if it’s more than 3 years old or if you see one of these telltale signs of a failing battery:
A marginally operating air-conditioning system may fail in hot weather, says the ASE. Put a thermometer in your car’s vent while the air conditioner is running and see how cool the air is getting. If it’s not cooling properly, you may try replacing cabin air filters that clean the air entering the heating and air-conditioning system in newer cars. Check your owner’s manual for location and how often they should be replaced.
However, if your air-conditioning system is suffering from a bigger problem — like a leak or loss of refrigerant — it’s likely time for a mechanic.
Your four tires offer a critical connection to the road, says the Car Care Council. Check them at least monthly. Low tire pressure adds rolling resistance, making it harder for the engine to move your car.
The right car maintenance can save you time and money and keep you traveling safely on the road this summer!
