Ryans Recovery
We were stuck on the side of the road on Hwy 91 outside of Leadville and it began to snow. We had no cell service and DOT called for AAA for us. Shane from Ryan's showed up and quickly had us safe and secure in his truck while he loaded ours. We were in the process of moving and had over 100 miles to go. He and Kody were AWESOME and teamed up to make sure that we got home and were safe. I even made it to work on time! Really can't say enough good things about the professionalism shown by those two men. On a side note: both men commented in conversation about how great it is to work for Ryan. I never met Ryan but it speaks volumes to his character. Thanks to you all!!

I slid my Jeep off the road into the snow at 10,000'. Ryan's Recovery went where no other service dared to go. Recovery expert, Austin, possessed the expertise and equipment to get me on my way. Thank you for coming to my rescue.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
