Rocky Mountain Auto Care Center
I recently moved to Pocatello and want to share my experience of bringing my car to the Rocky Mountain Auto Care Center. I have an older VW Golf, which I’ve maintained faithfully for the past 10 years. Being new to the area, I was really nervous about taking my car somewhere. For the past few days, I noticed a gas smell coming in through my AC vent and the idle speed fluctuating between 1000 and 2000 RPM without touching the gas pedal. Knowing my car pretty intimately, I knew that something wasn’t right. Not wanting to wait until something happened where I’d be stranded without a vehicle, I did a quick internet search for a mechanic close to ISU. I chose to call the Rocky Mountain Auto Care Center. I dropped my car off there in the morning before work, and dropped my key in the slot. As most of you can probably relate, I braced myself for the inevitable call saying “Ah, you’re going to need X, and it’s going to cost X amount (generally at LEAST 200 + dollars)”. You can imagine my surprise and delight, when Jason called and told me that he couldn’t find anything wrong with my car (he had checked for fuel leaks) and that the smell of gas and strange idling behavior was probably due to someone (me) leaving the oil cap off last time I added oil to my car. Oil had leaked out and was burning out on the engine. Long story short, he put the cover back on and the issue is solved. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have found an HONEST mechanic in my new town. He could have easily made up some story about a gasket, fuel pump or something else and charged me whatever and I would have been none the wiser. This experience really proves that there are still trustworthy, decent people out there. To top off the experience, when I went to pick up my car and pay the $20 fee (he could charge MUCH more), the power was out in Pocatello and he gave me my car key, explained to me what he checked on my car and told me to come back tomorrow to pay him. WOW – if you’re looking to get your car repaired in Pocatello – please go here, you won’t be disappointed!

Fresh Start Auto
Just bought an SUV from them today. Jerald the salesman worked so hard to get the financing done. And didn't pressure us on what to buy. But did give any input he could to help us make the best decision. He was very knowledgeable of the vehicle's we were looking at buy the time we were done with the test drive he was waiting at the door to see what we thought with the financing done. We got a great looking Chevy Tahoe. With room for everyone. We will buying all our cars from fresh start from now on. Thanks a ton to Jerald the salesman and Jerry the finance manger for making owning a new car do able and not stressful. We will be informing everyone we know that needs a car to head to pocky and fresh start for all here auto needs.

My kids and I were on our way back to Montana the night before Christmas Eve and my car threw a belt on the interstate. I drove it as far as I could until I died as I pulled into a gas station. I saw the shop across the street and ran over for see if they could help. It was shortly after five pm and the gentleman came out and looked at it and had me pull across the street where he began to work on it for me. He had parts delivered promptly and stayed 2 hours after they were closing to make sure my family was taken care of and back on the road safely. I very much appreciated their hospitality and willingness to stay after hours and help us.. I strongly recommend this shop to anyone in the area.

Les Schwab Tire Center
Curtis, Vonas and the staff of Les Schwab in Pocatello deserve a huge appreciation for their generosity. A tire of our rented car blew out while heading to yellowstone. Les Schwab was the only tire shop open around 5pm, Saturday in Pocatello. Les Schwab didn’t have a matching tire, but the staff was kind enough to understand our situation & searched a lot to get a fit from the pulled out stock. Finally they fixed the tire but refused to accept any money. The generous act of Curtis & Vonas and the staff is again appreciated & we wish them & Les Schwab all the very best!

Fresh Start Auto
I have nothing but good things to say about Fresh Start. They were always courteous, helpful and truthful. They had a cracked windshield replaced for me at no cost. They even had the detail team redo the inside because I found some old pop spills in the center console. They went to bat for me regarding my payments. They were able to have them lowered by $70 p/m. I purchased a 2008 Chevy Impala with 71k miles. It has run great. I even made a cross country trip (Pocatello to New York and to Atlanta, GA) within 2 weeks of purchase. I got excellent mileage on the trip.

Doctor D's Auto Clinic
I've taken my cars to Dr. D's several times. What clinched it for me was the time I thought I had the problem diagnosed, but fixing it was beyond my skills. It would have been a very expensive part and a fair amount for labor. I gave the good doctor the go-ahead to order the part. He called me back a couple of hours later and told me that wasn't the problem, it was a plugged filter. The thousand-dollar job I had okayed ended up costing me less than a hundred. A car tech who is both skilled and honest is good to know.

Thank you so much for your help. My mother is 69 year's old and had no idea what is the best choice for her in getting into a car that fit her needs and accomplish her satisfaction with great price and lasting her next year's of her life. Many thanks to a manager Jerry, car dealer Jared and the a nice welcoming staff.

Mike's Corner Service
I will never take my car anywhere else. Mike is honest and by far the best price anywhere for miles. I needed a transmission flush on my Nissan and the dealership wanted to charge me $210! Mike did it for 87. I highly recommend going to him for all your car needs. He always does more than what's needed and won't cost you an arm and a leg!

They have great customer service and support! They helped me get a car with little down and decent payments! Then I paid off the car and was able to turn around and turn it back in for a down payment on an upgraded 4 wheel drive and I'm so happy with my new car! Great place to lease your cars!

I had purchased a 2003 Audi wagon and was very pleased with the the great customer service I was provided. I encourage any one looking for a vehicle, car or truck to get one from the wonderful people at fresh start. I know my next one will be from them. Thanks to your wonderful staff
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.
