Sparks RV Repair
Ray went out of his way to help us get back on the road when we broke down. Highly recommend. We hired a couple to drive our trailer from Calif to Midwest. Trailer broke down in Sparks. Sparks RV Repair was the only place who would look at it. Not only did he look at it, he fixed it within a few hours and got our folks back on the road! Fast, friendly, and reasonably priced repair work!!! We are so grateful!!!!!!

I was fortunate to find Virgil Miller when I broke down in Sparks. My 99 Chevy Astro had a chronic problem with a key security problem and would not start. Virgil never gave up on it, he bypassed the key switch part of the system and located a fault which burned out the BCM (Body Control Module). I have driven 4,000 miles with over 100 starts since then with no problems.If you have 'gremlins' in your Gremlin, go see Virgil.

Tico's Auto Center
Took a chance and stopped in at Ticos because I was having problems with the starter on a 95 GMC sierra. Right from the start, I could tell that Ticos was a very honest and reliable service shop for my vehicles. I'm still having some issues with the truck, but I know that they will take care of my issues. I've been in the area over 20 years and have been through most of the auto repair shops in town, no one do I trust my vehicles more with than Ticos.

We needed to replace the fuel pump on our generator while we are traveling...I called a LOT of places, no one could see us for weeks...called Dana at Sparks - it was 10:AM...she asked if we could be there before 2:00 pm the generator was fixed and they fixed another couple of little things for us while there. These guys are AWESOME and their pricing is more than fair!! Highly recommended!!

I brought my motorhome in for a roof repair that another place quoted me $12,000.00. They repaired and resealed it for under $2500. They handled an insurance claim for broken awning in short time. This week they installed a In Motion Sat system same day WOW.
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.
