4th of July

July Manager’s Minute

We Will Be Closed Monday July 4th

This month in your Manager’s Minute I want to talk about Summer Travel and Batteries. As we get ready to celebrate our Independence, I want to remind everyone to have your vehicle checked. Summer travel can be unpredictable if your vehicle isn’t up to it. Summer heat can effect your car battery, AC performance, not to mention leading to your car over-heating.

The 4th of July is the official celebration of summer and a great time to take a road trip, so get your vehicle ready. We’re offering a Free Battery inspection. I recommend getting your car battery checked before you hit the road. Heat can cause damage to your battery and leave you stranded on the side of the road. This month, when you buy a new NAPA Battery, you can help the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. So come in and see us and get your car ready for summer travel.

June Manager's Minute

June Manager’s Minute

June is here and summer is soon to follow. I know if you’re like me, you already have your travel plans laid out for the summer. But, that’s just the beginning, the rest is preparation. Like taking your car in for a trip check. Before hitting the road, I always like to do a full vehicle inspection. And even though I’m a mechanic and I know what’s under my hood and don’t expect surprises, I still check my oil when I fill up. Especially if I’m pulling trailer. We’re here to do the first part for you. Schedule your oil change and trip check before your go. And, don’t forget to check the oil while you go.

June means Father’s Day. Sure, Dad usually takes care of the car stuff, but why don’t you take it off his plate this month? Get his car serviced for him. An oil change or fluid service or a membership to our Car Care Club, any of these can make a great gift. Ask at the desk and we can set you up with a Gift Certificate. Happy Father’s Day and Welcome Summer! We thank you for being our customer.

April – Manager’s Minute

Hey Everybody,

Jim DearholtSpring is here and we are excited about it. I believe everyone knows me well enough to know that Easter is an important time of year to me. It marks the renewal of our spirit and the promise of our salvation. It’s a special time for us to reflect on the people in our lives, the things we have, and to care for those things. To be good stewards of the resources God gives us.

Of course, I’m a mechanic so that makes me think of taking care of vehicles. And taking care of your big investments, like cars and trucks is part of stewardship. Every year we see a job come through that could have been prevented with regular maintenance or an inspection. We just want to say to them, “if you would have gotten the oil changed, you would have know the oil was low and maybe that connecting-rod would not be on the outside of your engine block.” Earth Day is on the 22nd of April every year and it is about being good stewards of the planet. One of the number one ranked ways for reducing emissions and reducing fuel consumption, according to AAA, is regular maintenance and repair. 

We welcome to our staff Harley Chatman, as our new front desk Customer Service Representative. More great news, Cheryl Montoya has been promoted to Service Advisor. Come in and meet Harley and congratulate Cheryl on her new position. We have recently brought on Nate Martinez and an additional Technician. We are thrilled to have these new employees on board, and having Cheryl taking on a new role in the company.

And it’s National Car Care Month, so we are offering our Annual VIP Car Care Club for 25% Off. Ask Harley for the details of everything that’s included in your membership.

We hope you enjoy the spring and have a wonderful Easter. We want to thank you for being our customer and welcome you into the shop anytime.
