“Ill be honest with you all, I haven’t been to auto mechanic in over 8 years mainly because I dont trust them, HOWEVER with the people at Christensen they have restored some of that trust. When you come here, YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDS. There’s no BS, just honestly and integrity A+++++” – Barry W.
“Great job. Repaired our transfer case. Had my truck towed into Christensen for a decoder motor, etc and was advised it was a t/case, shopped around and got a reman t/case. They did the install, just got done testing it out in the mud, lol. Dealt with Mike picked up truck today, they test drove, I test drove. Selector 4wd worked great. Works much better after a poor repair in Fernley. Very friendly, didn’t try to sale me more than I needed done. I would recommend this shop. Price was as quoted.” – Jodie M.
