Zara’s Collision Center has been recognized by Hyundai as a collision repair facility certified by Assured Performance Collision Care. The announcement was made by Brad Zara, president of Zara’s Collision Center.
Zara’s certifications by Assured Performance Collision Care also include Ford F-150 aluminum-alloy bodies and steel frames, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, General Motors, and Enterprise.
“Being able to add the Hyundai certification to our capabilities is a great source of pride for us,” said Zara. “The Springfield area is home to a lot of Hyundai drivers. They now have a local, certified repair facility for their convenience should an accident occur.”
Less than 5% of collision repair shops nationally have met the Assured Performance criteria. The stringent 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-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 an extremely high level of customer service, skilled workmanship, and overall VIP treatment backed by lifetime warranty of the repair,” said Zara.
Assured Performance Collision Care is a non-profit consumer advocacy organization working with the top auto makers to identify, audit, and promote collision repair providers that meet best-in-class business standards and the manufacturers’ standards of quality.
Zara’s, now in its 29th year of business, is located at 3117 Wide Track Drive in Springfield, one block south of Dirksen Parkway and South Grand Avenue East. Also recognized for the corporate outreach of its Benevolence Program, Zara’s has given away nearly 30 refurbished vehicles to deserving individuals during 16 years of the program.
