Advanced Repair
My elderly mother has taken her car to them for years and they have always done great work, great customer service, and they stand behind their work.I brought my car to them to diagnose a problem I was having with my car and they found a broken wire to a sensor, that several other repair shops could not find. They are an honest garage, unlike others that try to upsell you on unneeded repairs and parts. I will drive up from the twin cities area to have them work on my car.jk

Been going her on and off since the day I arrived in Saint Cloud in 2000. Today, I brought the car in thinking it needed a radiator flush and a new rear muffler. Randy called to say that it wasn't worth putting money into my leaking radiator and that the rust on the muffler was only superficial and did not need to be replaced. They put some Stop Leak in the radiator and I got out for only $35. That is how they have always been. Joe Melcher

I was highly impressed with my recent visit to NTB in St. Cloud. The store manager Jeremy was very helpful, professional, and didn't try to sell me anything extra or more than I needed. They offer very competitive prices. I was able to bring my 4 year old with me and he stayed occupied due to their kid room with toys. I HIGHLY recommend going here for your next tire service. I will not be going anywhere else.

I suggest this Midus to everyone. The owner Randy is great. They always get you in and out very fast. I don't take my vehicles anywhere else. They are very professional and they know what they are doing. They have never tried taking advantage of me on repairs they tell you exactly how it is and what need to be fixed and why. This place is the best at what they do.

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.
