EXCELLENT HONEST QUALITY SERVICE ! They did a great job on my 2013 6.7L Diesel F350. Kept me informed of everything they were doing. Excellent quality workmanship, good time frame considering the scope of the work. Honest repairs – did not try to sell unnecessary repairs. Christensen Automotive will have all of my future diesel engine work. Their pricing on engine work is honest considering the work and what is involved. Lyle was the mechanic and Brian was the service writer – both great folks. Thanks. – Matt P.

I have taken my car to Christensen for basic maintenance for over a year now and have always received great service. This past month I had to have some major work done to my car and they were amazing to work with in a VERY frustrating situation dealing with Chevrolet. Long story short they really went above and beyond of what they had to do and were great at communicating what was going on and what my options were. – Holly P.

This automotive repair facility provides quality service with honesty and integrity that is a rare find in my experience (Bruce Clark’s experience too!) in Northern, NV. They give fair, detailed estimates and so far the results have been satisfactory. Please have your vehicle serviced or repaired here if you want competence and peace of mind. Thank you Lance! – Kenya F.
