We have a vehicle that pulls funny in both directions. Mr. Nyblom serviced our vehicle. It was determined that it could be 3 possible things. He gave us some great options and advice as to were to start. We were able to make a confident decision and will be taking our vehicles to Christensen Automotive from now on. Thank you for being honest, going over all our options, and making it easy to understand! – Krysti B.
These guys worked on a Jeep I owned. They told me when the condition and anticipated repairs were going to exceed the value and advised me to get rid of it. They could have just kept “fixing” something that couldn’t be fixed and charging every time. I so appreciate their expertise and honesty. I don’t feel like they’ve ever tried to “upsell” me as many of these places do. I have been “taken” by repair shops in the past but feel very confident I’m being treated fairly here. I am retired and on a fixed income so very much appreciate their honesty and how respectfully I am treated here. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!! – Linda H.
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. – Ronin G.
