Welcome to the Simard Automotive Blog!

You may have noticed we have a great new website for Simard Automotive, and now we also have a blog! This is an exciting development and another way we can stay connected with our customers. We'll be posting articles here on a weekly basis and covering a variety of different topics relating to automotive care, automotive service and auto repair. You'll also be able to get a glimpse into the way we like to do business at Simard Automotive.

About Simard Automotive

Simard Automotive was founded by Michael Simard back in 1997. He started with a tiny one-bay shop in Fairbanks, Alaska that he actually built himself. After a couple years, the business grew and moved into its current shop location near the airport (5200 Aeronca). In 2016, Simard Automotive opened a second location in Fairbanks (768 Gaffney Rd.). "Having two shops in different parts of town allows us to better serve the Fairbanks community and its great people," Michael says. "Our approach is all about personalized and comprehensive customer service."

Simard Automotive serves Fairbanks, Fort Wainwright, College, Fox, Eielson AFB, North Pole and Two Rivers, North Star Borough and the surrounding Alaska communities.

NAPA Knowhow

Simard Automotive is a certified NAPA AutoCare Center, which makes it part of a network of over 14,000 repair facilities nationwide. Most parts and labor are backed by the NAPA AutoCare Peace of Mind Warranty (24 months/24,000 miles) and that warranty is honored at any of the NAPA AutoCare Centers throughout the United States. Simard Automotive also offers a special Million Mile Warranty and preventative maintenance program for vehicle owners who qualify for this special loyalty program.

Simard Automotive's two Fairbanks auto repair facilities are equipped to handle all types of automotive maintenance and auto repairs. Their expert team of ASE Certified automotive technicians will provide the best service when it comes to oil changes, inspections, diagnostics, brake repair, diesel repair, suspension, power steering, engine repair, wheels and tires, electronics, emissions, radiators, heating/air conditioning, car batteries and transmissions. You name it and Simard Automotive has you covered. They work on all types of cars from hybrid vehicles up to diesel trucks and large service vehicles. They also offer fleet account services if you have multiple work vehicles that require ongoing repairs and maintenance.

Quality Service with a Personal Touch

Fairbanks can be a tough place to keep a car maintained, especially during the harsh winter months of Central Alaska. Simard Automotive offers loyalty programs for routine maintenance. They like to call it the "Arctic Enhanced Service Schedule" and it ties hand-in-hand with their Million Mile Warranty program. They'll keep your car or rig running throughout the year and for many years to come.

Above all else, Simard Automotive is committed to personal customer service and expert automotive repair. They'll take care of your car and they'll take care of you. They'll let you know exactly what needs to be repaired with a detailed and honest repair estimate, so you can make the decision if you want to move ahead or get a second opinion at another shop.
