Herndon Auto Service-Fresno
SUPERIOR MECHANIC WORK & VERY COMPETITIVE PRICES AT HERNDON AUTO SERVICE IN FRESNO:[SPECIALIZING IN MERCEDES BENZ]On May 8, 2017, I brought my Mercedes Benz 300E 2.6 to Herndon Auto Service located on Herndon & Maroa due to the engine light turning red during the weekend and the warning light activated which warned me that some lights needed to be replaced. I contacted Ricky Altero, the owner, on Saturday, May 6, 2017 regarding all these issues. Ricky answered his cell phone during the weekend and guaranteed me that he would provide me with his own truck during the time that my vehicle would be in his shop for repairs. When I arrived on Monday morning to bring in my vehicle, Ricky had his truck parked and ready for me to take. There have been numerous times throughout the years that Ricky has even loaned me his own sports Mercedes Benz when my vehicle has needed repair work.Arturo Alvarez, the top technician and supervisor from Herndon Auto Service, was honest and sincere with me and immediately informed me that he would replace my Engine Codes 16 EGR and Vacuum Change over-valve. Arturo Alvarez even cleaned the EGR pipe which required an additional hour of labor but didn’t charge me for this additional hour. How many dealerships would perform extra work at no cost like Herndon Auto Service? Also, both Arturo and Ricky exhibited extreme care and cleanliness to my vehicle which has been regarded for so many people throughout Fresno as one of the cleanest Mercedes Benz they have ever seen. I highly recommend Herndon Auto Service, because they take pride in all of their work, have very competitive prices, and take care of matters in a very professional and timely manner. Every single time that I have brought my vehicle to Herndon Auto Service, I feel like I am treated by Ricky Altero, Arturo Alvarez, and all the technicians as a VIP.I will continually take my Mercedes Benz to your # 1 DEALERSHIP IN FRESNO: (559)-431-3556!!!!!Donald Rotella

Tint Pros
Phenomenal job! I called the Tint Pros shop Friday evening after hours. Couldn’t believe it when the guy returned my call that night. Impressed me so much I made an appointment for the next day, Saturday (today) at 7am. They already had a car slotted for 7am already, but went out of their way to accommodate me. When I arrived 10 min early, the guy was already set up for me. We discussed all the available options. He didn’t try to sell me on any one option. The price was settled (fair price) and was told the job would be done in about an hour. When I said I was going to get some breakfast, the guy threw his car keys to me and said “take my car.” That was unbelievable. This shop did an outstanding tint job on my car, for a great price, and loaned me a car so I didn’t have to walk to a breakfast place. Who does that? Everything is guaranteed with lots of options in case something changes in the future. I’d recommend this shop to anyone. And, when I take my wife’s car to them in a few weeks, I still get the multi-car discount. These guys earned my business. Now go let them earn yours.

Red Carpet Car Wash
Excellent Fast Professional Service. A Noticeably Inspired service team; Quick yet Attentive and Thorough. Props to Workers & Leaders! I remained in my car while it was serviced, kept abreast of checks & procedures, & was shown the dip sticks to see levels for myself. I felt included. They're Open, Forthcoming, w/no deceptions, & nothing left out. Offered options, recommendations, & advice. From my driver's seat I saw the pieces of paper & plastic removed from my air intake compartment that was apparently there for years, & which Walmart oil changers failed many times to remove or show any concern or communication about it with me. I got a $5 off coupon on my phone reducing the already low price, which came with a Free car wash, but that's not all, I was given my choice of iced tea, lemonade, or ice water delivered right to me in my car. Very Happy and Impressed with the service and experience. I was in and out of there in 43 minutes, and there were 9 cars in the garage B4 me.

Payless Brakes & Tires
These guys are a rare find in Fresno. 2 brothers, Yeppo & Sako really take care of you. They were upfront about what was wrong with my car and even though the repair seemed pretty expensive and excessive, they told me to go checkout a few other places. My wife waited in their (remodeled?) lounge, very nice for a mechanic shop by the way lol. Went to about 5 other places on Blackstone before I realized these guys were not only the cheapest, but they were willing to do a little extra work to make sure on top to make sure i don't come back for the same problem. When I told them the quotes i got and asked them how they stay in business if people "pay less", Sako said when they provide good service the first time, they'll want to come back if they have any other issues in the future, with their other cars, referrals. Makes Sense. Got my car back a day before they said it would be ready. Been a year, and no issues!Thanks guys!

Herndon Auto Service-Fresno
I have a Mercedes E350 and every time I been bringing my car to the Dealer for service and repairs but the prices and service are not the best. I been looking for a better shop and I found this shop as i was driving back home. As soon as I walked in I was welcomed and they took really good care of me and my car. My car had the check engine light and they kept the car for couple days, they got back to me explaining the issue my car had and price quote to fix it. When they call me to let me know my car was ready the manager was there to see if I had any questions. The price and customer services was pretty good. If you have European car, I'll recommend you this mechanic shop, its an excellent option, great service and friendly customer service.

G N Auto Care
I was traveling to LA when my tire went flat , I located G N auto care and was pleased to see the manager as he was leaving for home. He opened the shop, Restarted all his equipment and then fixed the flat, AT 8:15 pm with a flat tire in a strange Town where I did not know any one. I thought I will pay more than $60 for the repair but manager KB Brar charged me $12.78 total. When i offered him more money he refused and told me this," We are here for Our customers not here to rob them". I like the business ethics . Later I came to know that Kb Brar is a PhD Doctor and that his wife and him own the business. At the End I had a very Pleasant visit there and I would recommend this business to all my family and friends.

Jorges Tires
Last week I had a tire blow out on my old car. Not wanting to sink as much money for a new set of tires as the car was worth, I called Jorge's Tire. They found me 3-matching tires matching what was already on my car, in fact they were even better than what was previuosly on it! I neglected to bring enough cash and needed to get to an ATM, so while they were putting the tires on my car, Jorge (George) himself took the time to drive me up Blackstone to an ATM. The car was ready to go when we returned and the price was terrific, less than the cost of just one tire at the new tire store! These guys are fast, inexpensive, customer service oriented but most of all HONEST! They have found a loyal customer in me.

Goodguys Tires & Auto Repair
A good auto mechanic is important, but hard to find. So it's a good thing to find a trustworthy and reliable auto shop.There are few things more frustrating than spending good money on a car repair and getting a sloppy job in return. So finding a good shop before you hand over your cash. Is a rare GEM.The great news is that Goodguys on Blackstone is a well-managed and consumer friendly shop in Fresno. John, Anthony, Javier and the staff are honest and play no games when it comes to the care of your vehicle. I really don't recommend a business to others, but Good Guys on Blackstone is a no brainer. Two Thumps Up!

Tint Pros
I went to Tint Pros on Friday. Everyone there was extremely friendly and they did an awesome job tinting my SUV. The prices are very reasonable. They were very informative and helpful when deciding what level of tint to use. Alex showed me how the different levels of tint would look. They have an wonderful warranty and I would recommend them in a heartbeat as well as go back to them with any other tinting needs I may have in the future. They are in a new location on Blackstone between Sierra and Bullard, just across the street from U-Haul.Great Job!!! Thanks!!

Discount Auto and Tires
I went here to get my truck transmission repaired, and it was such great service, it took like a week or less, like 5 days, which was great and expected. Cost $1, 200.00 which was expected also. I called around and other places wanted $1, 700.00 or higher. When the truck was done the man showed us all our old parts and explained what they should of been like, he was so helpful and very understanding. And most important, he felt trustworthy! I would always recommend this place and go there again for any other transmission repair on my other cars.
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
