Meet Eric Betts
Eric Betts’ Credentials
ASE Master Certification, L1 certification, Isuzu and Subaru factory-trained technician.
Eric’s Start with Cars
Eric’s first experience working on cars was when he purchased his 1970 Dodge Charger. This car is what really kickstarted his passion for working on cars and after graduating, he decided to attend Texas State Technical College to earn a certificate in Automotive Technology.
Eric’s Professional Career
After earning his certificate, a shop called Waco Auto Imports then hired him full time to work on Isuzu, Mazda, Subaru, Suzuki, and Daihatsu vehicles. Eric later moved on to work at an Isuzu dealer in the city of Dallas Texas. Eventually, he grew a little tired of that big city lifestyle and moved back home to Tyler, Texas for 6 years to work at the local garage, Crown Auto. At Crown Auto, he continued his work on import vehicles and was their specialist for Isuzu, Subaru, VW, and Kia.
During his time at Crown Auto Eric also received his ASE Master Certification, his L1 certification, and became both an Isuzu and Subaru factory-trained technician.
In 1999, Eric moved to Minnesota and began working at White Bear Acura, Isuzu and Subaru out in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. A month later, the family pulled up their Texas roots and everyone moved to Minnesota. Eric’s expertise caught the eye of Identifix and he was recruited to be a Virtual Tech for the Asian car team where he’s been crushing it since 2005.
When He’s Not Working
Outside of work, Eric enjoys exercising at the local Farrell’s gym and even instructs classes in the morning. He also loved riding his 4 wheelers and camping with his wife.
