Late-Night TV Celebrities Ranked by Car Owners Most Trusted To Work on Their Cars

Late-Night TV Celebrities Ranked by Car Owners Most Trusted To Work on Their Cars

If you could pick a late-night television celebrity to work on your car, there is a good chance his first name would be Jimmy. In a survey of more than 20,000 vehicle owners across the country, the results show that Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon top the list, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"[W]e thought it would be fun to ask vehicle owners which late-night TV host they would trust most work on their cars," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "As the results poured in, the two Jimmys were polling neck and neck, but in the end, Kimmel edged out Fallon for the 'most trusted to work on my car' title."

The survey, conducted by IMR Inc., an automotive market research company, polled over 22,000 vehicle owners throughout the country who were asked to choose which late-night celebrity host they would trust most to work on their car. The final results were as follows:

Jimmy Kimmel27.6%
Jimmy Fallon27.4%
Stephen Colbert19.6%
Trevor Noah14.3%
James Corden11.2%

"We appreciate IMR Inc. donating valuable space on their quarterly consumer auto maintenance study to help the Car Care Council draw attention to ... the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair," said White.

Bill Thompson, president of IMR, commented, "We had a blast working with the council on this project. This was a really fun question to add for our respondents. Judging by the number who responded, they were eager to voice their opinion on their favorite late-night host. We watched the results as they came in nearly every day."

Celebrity preferences aside, the Car Care Council recommends asking six simple questions to help identify the right auto repair shop to properly care for one of your most valuable assets, your car.

  1. Does the business employ ASE-certified technicians? Credentials and affiliations are indicators of professionalism and the management's commitment to training and education.
  2. Is the shop and customer waiting area clean and organized? Cleanliness and organization are signs of a well-run business.
  3. Are customers greeted and treated in a friendly and respectful manner? Many auto repair businesses excel in the area of customer service and satisfaction. A simple phone call to the shop to inquire about their services can give you a glimpse of how they treat customers.
  4. Does the business provide a written estimate? The business should complete a written estimate and request your signature prior to starting any repairs on your car.
  5. Does the business offer a warranty? Most auto repair businesses offer a warranty on parts and labor and the warranty is usually in writing or posted in the waiting area.
  6. Does the business have a list of satisfied customers or references that it is willing to give you?

Satisfied customers and recommendations from family, friends and neighbors are helpful in finding a good shop. Many auto repair facilities also have company websites that are worth checking out as they often include testimonials and additional information about the business.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I needed a comprehensive pre-purchase inspection to buy a car sight unseen from the next state over. I am so grateful I found Pat and Joe. Not only did they do a great job trouble-shooting with honesty and integrity, they were really fun to work with! They went over and beyond to give me the best info possible to make a decision, then fixed the issues for a fair price. They were willing to keep the car for me an extra week, discussed all the details as we went along, and provided a peace of mind I couldn't have purchased the car without. HIGHLY recommend this outfit! Thanks, guys!

What a great experience we had with Pro Tune Plus! We were stranded nearby as we were driving through after a badlands camping trip when we noticed that 3 of 6 tire studs had sheared off, and only 1 of 3 remaining lug nuts were tight. We had AAA tow our truck to Pro Tune Plus on a Saturday afternoon, and I called Monday morning when they opened after the weekend and they said they would get it done that day, an easy inexpensive fix, and that was exactly how it turned out! We had since taken a cab to rent a car at the airport and drove home, and they took it the extra mile and parked our truck at the airport for us so we could drop off the rental car that night and not have to take a cab to pick up the truck at the shop, thank you!!

I called Pro Tune Plus just for some information regarding automotive wiring. The fellow I talked to was extremely helpful and pleasant, and spent a few minutes with me on the phone without seeming rushed even without any indication from me that I would be bringing my project in for them to work on. I am impressed that he genuinely was interested in sharing his knowledge with me and that he answered my questions to my satisfaction. Although I don't currently have need of the service Pro Tune Plus provides, the interaction I had with them ensures that the next time I do need it, they will be the call I make. Thank You for the gracious attitude, and information!

These guys have been really great to work with and very honest. I haven't had a mechanic this good in years. So glad I found your place.

I highly recommend Pro Tune Plus based on my experience. I was driving from Virginia to Saskatchewan in January and my AWD system in my volvo xc 70 failed. I was stuck in a strange town and unsure of where to take my car. Both AAA and the staff at the Marriott Residence Inn seemed to think Pro Tune Plus would be decent. I was more than impressed with their service and the options offered in getting me back on the road. They did a great job; show impeccable attention to detail; and understood my need to get my car fixed and back to grad school quickly and cheaply. Fixing a Volvo in an area where there aren't alot of Volvos was scary for me but it worked out great!
