NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (Feb. 25, 2019) – ASA is partnering with an auto repair industry leader to produce a series of videos aimed at building an online dialogue to help business owners solve everyday challenges in their shops.

With Arizona shop owner Frank Leutz hosting, the online “Garage Challenges” videos will be produced twice monthly. They will be made available online at and through ASA’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media accounts.

The goal is to produce needed information for shop owners and then for it to create discussion among ASA members.

“We want the industry to weigh in on these challenges and share their experiences and ideas for the betterment of your shop and the industry as a whole.”

— ASA Executive Director Ray Fisher

Leutz, host of Car Talk Radio and owner of Desert Car Care, an ASA member-shop in Chandler, Ariz., is excited about the opportunity.

“Coming together discussing common, everyday garage concerns by way of sharing ideas for solutions is critical,” Leutz said. “My hope is that we can further the discussion in a quick and easy format to help each other out.”

Leutz’s efforts were recently featured in an article and a podcast on AutoInc. Online.
