How do you benefit from Spirit West’s OEM certifications?


Accidents are unfortunate and unpredictable, but how your vehicle is repaired doesn’t have to be.

Did you know about nine out of 10 body shops across America do not have the right tools, equipment, training, and facilities to properly repair today’s vehicles back to manufacturer’s specifications?

What seems to be a simple fender-bender may not be so simple anymore, which is why you’ve come to the right place to repair your pride and joy when you selected Spirit West Motor Carriage Auto Body Repair, in Manchester, Mo.

Now built with lightweight, high-strength materials and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) collision-avoidance electronics, today’s vehicles are safer than ever. But they’re also too complex to take yesterday’s “one size fits all approach.”

It’s why Spirit West Motor Carriage Auto Body Repair has invested in original equipment manufacturer (OEM) certification programs. It’s the seal of approval by the maker of your vehicle that we have met or exceeded their rigorous standards for tools, equipment, factory training, and customer service facilities needed to repair it.

OEM certification programs also mean we use OEM parts to repair your vehicle, not a third-party aftermarket imitation part, which results in a greater fit and finish and helps ensure your vehicle, if it were in another accident, would perform as it would pre-accident.

Check out our growing list of OEM approvals!

We are certified by BMW, Subaru, and Volvo, and we are certified by the Assured Performance Network – which places Spirit West Motor Carriage in an elite group of body shops – to repair Chrysler, Fiat, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, and Nissan vehicles. We look at adding additional programs as demand dictates.

Our technicians also receive continuing education and recognition or certification through the Inter-industry Conference on Auto Repair (I-CAR; we’re proud of our I-CAR Gold status) and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE.)


We use the same attention to detail to each vehicle that comes through our doors. Our customer-friendly staff, from our office staff (who always greet you with a smile) to our estimators, parts and production managers, and certified technicians, treat your vehicle as if it were our own. Give us a call or contact us today to see how we can get your car back into shape and back on the road…SAFELY!
