Will knew that his car had a few issues that needed addressing. He's very familiar with cars and knows how to do a lot of the standard maintenance work himself. However, it had been sometime since he had the vehicle inspected by a professional auto repair technician, so he brought it into Simard Automotive in Fairbanks for a 75-point inspection. He found one of our coupons online and figured it was worth giving our shop an opportunity to inspect his vehicle.
"Great value," Will says in his recent online review of Simard Automotive. "I received timely callbacks when scheduling the work. The service advisor asked about particular items of interest to me. One, concerning the cruise control, was outside the inspection scope of work."
The Simard Automotive 75-point inspection covers all the most important vehicle components from bumper to bumper. We look over the engine, transmission, fluids, wheels, tires, brakes, suspension, exhaust, cooling system, air conditioning/heating system, drive train and more. Not all vehicles have power steering, but we will check the power steering fluid level to make sure it's adequate. In Will's case, he had a more significant power steering issue that required a deeper inspection and repairs. Therefore, our service advisor walked the customer through exactly what to expect.
"He gave a lower and upper cost limit and promised to call if they found something that would be over the upper limit," Will adds. "He didn't call and said the technician was able to troubleshoot and solve the issue within the quoted limits. They provided a printout and email copy of all the issues that needed to be addressed. They knew I wanted to DIY."
In the end, Will got the detailed information he needed to perform many of the repairs and maintenance recommendations himself. He was grateful to have the vehicle completely inspected by the team at Simard Automotive. No matter how much you know about cars, it never hurts to get a second opinion sometimes.
"Good experience and I will do business again," Will concludes.
