About BAT Auto Technical

BAT Auto Technical is a one of a kind automotive technical website, where professional mechanics help people with their vehicle problems by providing professional, quality information. Where the professional, do-it-yourselfer, consumer and manufacturer can meet to gain quality information to meet their needs.

Our goal is to provide a comprehensive source of automotive repair information. A place where people can come to locate the information they need to take care of their vehicles and save time, money and headaches. Bruce, Alan and Tony (B.A.T.) founded BAT Auto Technical. After a lot of thought and work, they decided to create a site that would suit everyone, from the consumer who just needed an opinion, to the mechanic who is looking for a place to talk to other mechanics, provide assistance or needs a little assistance, to the manufacturer who was willing to listen to the consumer or mechanic.

A little background. Originally, in September of 1999, a little forum arose from an idea, adding a few little pages to a free web hosting. This little forum quickly grew to a point where a change had to be made. In June of 2000, BAT Auto Technical arose from the ashes of that little forum as a complete, comprehensive and professional website. BAT Auto Technical is always adding to it and trying to find the information that the reader will find of most interest.

Currently. A mechanics membership continues to grow and improve the site. We are greatful to them and Companies who help to support us and work with us. Improving the site continues to be our goal, along with providing the highest quality of assistance that we can.
