Are you curious to hear what Christensen Automotive customers have to say about the services they received? Look no further, here is what our customers think about us! We have also won awards in the Nevada Appeal five years in a row for our great service!

“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!” – Kristi B.

“Thank you Nick and friends!!! My entire dashboard went out, and I was recommended to this place. It was fixed within a short time, and the fee was very impressive. I will return, but hopefully, not too soon! Thank you again Nick.” – Roberta B.

“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.” – Matts P.

“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 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.” – Randy V.

“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 that were replaced during the servicing, along with an explanation about the need for replacement.” – Bruce K.

“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.

“Since our family has been taking our cars to Christensen auto in Carson we have been extremely happy. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. They are honest and do excellent work! I can drive now feeling safe and know my vehicles are kept up to its finest potential. I can’t thank Schell, Chris, and mechanics enough!!” – Helen W.

“Thought I’d give this facility a try since they acquired the business after my previous bad experience. I showed up without an appointment and they took me in between scheduled customers with a smile. They performed my oil change service in a professional manner without trying to up sell me on unnecessary services as most dealers and repair facilities do. They did make recommendations for future services based on my mileage which will help me to make future budgetary plans, I was very impressed with the employees I had contact with. Their positive attitudes and friendly demeanor is a welcome change from the indifference that I’ve come to expect from those in customer service.” – Bob R.

“My car was transported here by tow truck and left for evaluation. This I had the next day and repairs made the following. Easy to talk to staff. Cost of repairs, really well within the range of acceptable. I will continue going there and the car is now home and running really well. Additionally, this team of people picked up some minor things that should have been noticed and corrected by the dealership I originally dealt with. Thank you.” – Patricia M.

“I just went in to [Christensen Automotive] to have my water pump checked out on my Tundra. I suspected it may have a leak using a mirror, because there was no leak evidence in my driveway. Thier mechanic confirmed I do have a leak, Jerry and Nick got me in right away and basically got it fixed the first day, took it for a test drive the next morning and I was out the door. They were fair on the price, very quick getting me back on the road and treated me and my family awesome once again. Thanks for being straight shooters and your mechanic Big John is one of the finest around!!!!” – Robert B.

“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 and Dottie K.

“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 !” – Marilyn B.
