I was on vacation from Washington with my wife and two kids.  We decided to go up and see Virginia City. On the way up the car started to get a little warm.  On the way back we decided to go through Carson City.  As we reached town I noticed the temp gauge was getting pretty uncomfortable.  I saw some guys in coveralls leaning over a car.  It was a quarter to five, so I quickly did a U-turn and pulled in.  I told them my situation and despite the time of day they immediately started checking things out.  They told me it needed to be checked out more extensively but because of the time and the fact that I was staying in Reno it obviously wasn’t going to get fixed that day.  So they got on the phone and called their other store in Reno to see if they had time to do an overheating job in the morning.  Aaron, who was in their Reno store, immediately understood my situation and agreed to look at it first thing in the morning.  We crept back to Reno and brought the car over in the morning.  To make a longer story shorter by that afternoon our Jeep was fixed and we were able to continue on on our vacation for another week without any overheating issues whatsoever.  While they worked on our Jeep Aaron gave us a ride back to the casino where we were staying and when the car was done he paid for the taxi ride back to the shop, and the price he originally quoted me for the work was what I paid in the end.  Aaron you made a bad situation very easy to handle and I appreciate that.  Thanks for your help….

“I would like to thank you and your entire team for a job well done. I have owned this truck since 2003, and it has never ran as good as it does now!!! It is about time Carson City has a Automotive Service to be proud of. I will have all my future services done at Christensen Automotive and recommend it to everyone I know. Thanks Again.”…… Susan J

“Christensen Automotive has become my ‘go to’ place for servicing my Subaru. I always receive courteous service and very competitive pricing. And they always have available parts for inspection tht rwere replaced during the servicing, along with an explanation about the need for replacement.”

“Yes, They are 5 star great. Our family came out to Dayton and our jeep commander had problems with the transmission in Reno on a Saturday. No one in Reno would see us for at least 3 days due to hot August night’s. So we looked in Carson for anyone to help us so that we could leave on Sunday. Christinson Automotive was AAA recommended. As soon as we called them they were eager to help and concerned. In short they cared. They fixed the problem with the jeep in one day. And we were able to drive back home if you have car problems and are in the Carson area go see these guys. They are good.”

-Eliseo M.

“Great experience with this shop. They changed the brakes on my F-250 last minute and gave me what i think was an excellent deal. Honest and very friendly service. If I lived in this area they would seriously be the only shop I would trust with my vehicle.”

“This automotive service and repair business is the best in town. We take all three of our vehicles here…would not go elsewhere. Honest and trustworthy !!! Great customer
service !!! They keep all our vehicles running great. I would give them 10 stars, but, that wasn’t an option !”

“I can whole-heartedly recommend Christensen Auto in Gardnerville. I recently took my car in for some engine maintenance work, and the work was done professionally and timely. I don’t regularly go there for service, as I do most of my own work. The car was even returned to me with an extra touch of service (thoroughly washed and vacuumed, at no extra charge, which surprised me), and even without that courtesy, I felt I paid a fair price for the parts/labor that was done. Far better service and value than you would ever find at a dealer. Go see ’em, you won’t be sorry.”

-Chuck G.

I had to work down in LA for a week while my wife was stuck at home with 2 kids, a car with chains she could not remove and a truck with a transmission line leak. Lance from Christensen came to our house with a mechanic. Removed the chains from my wife’s Honda and then took our truck back to the shop for repair. The bill was going to be $550 so he called the local Chevy dealership and was able to get it fixed under warranty even though we were out of the factory warranty by 14K miles. He pulled off a miracle and saved us $500 two weeks before Xmas. All he asked of us was $15 for 2 qts of transmission fluid. Matt H.

“Everything was exactly as Lance said it would be. He talked to me through every step, saved my parts, explained what was going on. The staff was friendly and accommodating. No fast-talking or unfair pricing. Great place to take a car. I am older and have a hard time getting around, and they were consistently helpful.”

-Derotha Ann R.

“I took my Miata to Christensen’s with a hard to diagnose and intermittent problem. Russell stuck with the problem for three days trying this and that and finally found the source – a not fully plugged in Crank Positon Sensor.

The charges for the service were reasonable and the work was well done.”

-Shreesh T.

“I had never used your shop before and was concerned about having work done at a different facility. Everyone at your company was professional and accommodating. I knew many things needed attention and you addressed and repaired them all. It was truly a one-stop auto repair experience and you took care of everything quickly and at a fair price. Thank you again for the wonderful customer service.” Jean N.

“Excellent & quick service with very friendly service advisors. We were on a trip to Albuquerque when we had a bad AC compressor, they replaced it within 24 hours at a reasonable price & provided a rental car at no extra charge!”

Theresa V.

“Just a note to say we so much appreciate the fine service on our Cadillac and your kindness to us. And thanks, too, for all the assistance provided in shuttling us “to and fro”. You’re the best! “…. Bill & Dottie K. 7/20/12
