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.

    Needed to have my brakes looked at after being told i needed to have them replaced right away by another business. After a few minutes they actually told me I wasn't in dire need of having them replaced. I opted to go ahead and have them done just because the squealing was annoying. But I have to say, I appreciate the honesty. They have a nice waiting area as well although I was only there for about 45 minutes. They offered the best prices after calling around and their professionalism was outstanding. Thanks guys.

    I can't believe no one has reviewed this wonderful place yet!! I went here for some A/C repairs and was so glad I did!! They were more than helpful getting me in right away and the customer service was exceptional! The waiting area is well decorated and inviting(unlike most service shops) also the staff was So friendly! I was asked more than once if I wanted a bottle of water or anything to drink:) The guys were beyond helpful explaining what was being done and trying to get my car repaired quickly so I could be on my way! My A/C is still blowing cold and it was a pleasant service experience. I Definitely recommend Velocity!
