How to Find an Established Auto Shop that Hire Great Mechanics

How to Find an Established Auto Shop that Hire Great Mechanics

Still wondering where you can find a great mechanic that you can trust? Learn how you can narrow down the search for finding a great automotive mechanic.

14508940_blogAccording to an article at 20somethingfinance.com, “Finding a Mechanic”

“Ask yourself the following questions to determine whether you’ve found a good mechanic or not.

  1. What are their affiliations? Are their mechanics registered with the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)? Are they affiliated with other trade associations such as the Automotive Service Association (ASA) or American Automobile Association (AAA)? If they are, it’s not a guarantee of a solid operation, but these associations typically require a certain amount of training for mechanics in order for the business to achieve affiliation. It’s a good place to start.
  2. Check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) for customer complaints.
  3. Check review sites such as Google Maps and NPR’s Mechanics Files to see what people say about the business.
  4. What is their warranty policy? The longer the better. Is it only on parts, or does it also include labor?
  5. Does the mechanic give you options that you can choose from that will save you money? This is a sure sign of an honest mechanic.
  6. Will they let you watch while they work? Good mechanics aren’t afraid to let you sit nearby to see the quality and speed at which they work.
  7. Are they friendly, helpful, and not irritated by your questions? A good mechanic typically has an enthusiasm or excitement towards educating their customers about their vehicles. If you’ve run into a jerk who doesn’t want to discuss things with you, go elsewhere.

For the most part – you’ll know when you’ve found a good one.”  To read the entire article click here.

Recommended Summer Auto Maintenance in Reno

Recommended Summer Auto Maintenance in Reno

Being that summer is in full bloom, you can’t afford to be without a working vehicle. Have you done the recommended summer auto maintenance this season?

smog car According to an article at carycarcare.com, “Summer Auto Maintenance Tips”

“Summer has arrived and so has the heat. While the heat is great for trips to the beach or lake, it can wreak havoc on your vehicle. We here at Cary Car Care want to make sure your car is ready for the summer months. Here are a couple tips all drivers should know.

Regular Service

Cars that are well maintained should not overheat even on100-degree days but having your car serviced at regular intervals provides opportunity for service professionals to identify other needs that if ignored, could lead to overheating.

Cary Car Care recommends a regular service interval of 3000-5000 miles for optimal performance.

AC (Air Conditioning)

Air conditioning is the ‘must have’ for Carolina drivers and it’s wise to keep yours operating at peak performance. Make sure you have your system checked annually, preferably before the heat rears its ugly head in May. If you notice your system isn’t cooling down effectively, take it into Cary Car Care for a check-up, our ASE certified team will troubleshoot the issue and get your car back to feeling like an icebox.” To read the entire article click here.

Battery Replacement For Your sedan

Modern cars and trucks in and around Reno run on 12 volt electrical systems. 12 volts is enough to get the job done for Reno car owners without having so much power that there is danger of electrocution. But today’s vehicles have more electrical components and do-dads than ever before. This really strains your electrical system, making it hard for the battery to keep up. Think about it: electric seats, seat heaters, power locks, windows and sun roofs. And then us NV auto owners have all the power outlets for our cell phones, computers, and DVD players.

We also have navigation systems and powerful stereos. Plus there are all the engine and transmission computers, traction control, stability control, anti-lock brakes, sensors and on and on. Even the security system is running off the battery while the car is turned off.

Fortunately, battery technology has given Reno drivers resilient batteries that are able to meet these strenuous requirements. But the fact is, batteries just wear out over time. Eventually, every battery gets to the point where it cannot hold enough of a charge to start your sedan. Sometimes batteries need to be replaced because they have just worn out. Or, in other cases, they have developed a leak which makes it even more vital to get it replaced.

Special safety precautions are taken when working with batteries in the shop at Castrol Premium Lube Express in Reno, NV. These precautions also apply to anyone who is poking around the battery. Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can damage your eyes and burn your skin, so safety glasses and rubber gloves are a must for any Reno car owners working with their battery. Be careful to not spill acid on your clothes or the sedan’s paint. Of course, avoid short circuiting the battery as well.

Replacement car batteries come in all shapes and sizes. Some cars have limited space that requires a specially shaped battery to fit. Larger engines require more powerful batteries to get them started. If you live where it gets cold in NV you will need a more powerful battery because engines are harder to start when it is cold.

Sometimes there is quite a price range in Reno auto part stores for batteries that will work in a particular car. Think of it as “good”, “better” and “best”. More expensive batteries have a longer warranty and are guaranteed to last longer. As with most things, paying a little more up front saves income in the long run for Reno car owners.
