Dan Boeing has been turning wrenches on Chryslers for three decades — and he’s good at it.
How good? Top 1/10 of the top 1 percent of of all Chrysler technicians in the country, that’s how good.
Boeing, who has been a Chrysler mechanic since 1987, was recently ranked No. 33 out of the 25,000 company technicians across that nation.
You name it — diesel or gas engines, electrical, chassis, transmission, suspension — and Boeing can fix it.

But you won’t catch him bragging about it. “It’s just another day to me,” he said.
But his coworkers will. On May 22, they presented him with a certificate for his accomplishment and give him a huge round of applause.
“We are very, very fortunate (to have Don),” said Tim McGinley, owner of the the McGinley Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Kawasaki dealership in Highland, where Boeing has worked for the last 24 years.
Boeing is a level-four certified technician to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) standards. According to Mike Naylor, the dealership’s general manager, level four is the top level of certification for the FCA.
“Dan has been instrumental in the success of McGinley’s service department, and ultimately, our overall success,” Naylor said. “Dan has an amazing talent for diagnosing and repairing all of our Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram vehicles for many years. It is amazing to watch him work.”
Boeing earned his “Platinum” ranking from Chrysler through a combination of Fixed First Visit scores, his tech training achievements and his dealership tenure.
