Pam wanted to make sure her car was ready for the Alaskan winter. She's always been good about having regular maintenance done and another mechanic had already taken some steps to winterize the vehicle. However, Pam wanted to make absolutely sure the work was done right. She sought a second opinion from a Fairbanks-based shop that really knows how to get cars completely winter-ready in Alaska. After asking around, Pam decided to bring her car into Simard Automotive. She was glad she did.
"I was referred to Simard Automotive by my insurance agency's office and by my Realtor's office, as they all take their cars here," Pam says in her online review. "I made an appointment to have my car checked to make sure it was winterized properly. I showed them the itemized invoice of what I had done previously, and they stated that my previous mechanic did a great job, but they recommended one more heater to make it complete."
With below-freezing temperatures, ice, rain and snow prevalent throughout Alaska's harsh winter months, you don't want to take any chances. You never want to be left stranded in the cold and you want your car to run properly despite the chilly conditions. In Pam's case, the Simard Automotive technicians thoroughly inspected the vehicle to make sure everything was sound. The only significant issue found was that an additional heat source was needed to truly winterize her car. Once she authorized the work, our dedicated and knowledgeable team did what they did best and got the vehicle truly ready for the Alaska winter.
"They checked the tires, fluids and did an overall 'Ready for AK' check," Pam adds. "Everyone I dealt with showed integrity and honesty, and they truly understand customer service. Courteous, professional service. I give them 5 stars!"
