Dan's Service
(this is an UPDATE From another review i made, nearly 4 years ago, and YES i copied parts of it, because i hate to TYPE... please forgive... but i Always give credit to folks, when it is Due.) so as i mentioned before - Dan's Service is located in a small industrial area accessible from either harbor blvd. or west capitol ave. in west Sacramento. members of my family, as well as coworkers have been taking our vehicles to Dan and Ken for QUITE a few years now ! and they have (Still) proven themselves to be honest and reliable in all aspects of our dealings with them. I got RID of my poorly built, pile of FORD (A 1996 Taurus), and in 2011 i purchased a supercharged 1998 Buick Riviera with 133.000 miles, and since it has no "Distributor", i thought it best that i Immediately bring it in to Have the camshaft and crankshaft ignition sensors Replaced. and since Almost EVERYTHING had to be removed to get to the crankshaft sensor, i decided to have them replace the water pump and Bell Housing/Harmonic Balancer (there is a rubber piece that gets rotten in it, if it breaks it can throw all the belts) "Ken" also replaced all the pulleys as well... and due to the very cramped workspace, THIS was no Easy Task ! But as usual.. they did it RIGHT, because a year and a half later it still purrs like a kitten. and let me tell you, these Buick's are sweet!.. but somewhat temperamental, especially where the Electronics/Sensors are concerned.So KUDOS, my friends.. and "Dan" & "Ken" are (STILL) always there for me with reasonable and reliable service. and they have never tried to "up-sales" me or pull any punches, and they have reliable contacts for "Referral", IF a repair is not in their scope of Talent... and those qualities are Refreshing, in light of my prior experience with mechanics in general. (BUT... The Shop is NOT FANCY ! there is no room for a waiting room... But since this is a REAL mechanics shop, and not some "coddling" overdone car Dealership, i Believe i can live with that... ) I highly recommend "Dan" and "Ken" at Dan's service if your looking for honest competent mechanics ! review by, Todd p.

America's Tire Company
I purchased 4 new Michlelin tires Aug 15th at this site. I had called them for info about the tires and was given prices and told about a rebate offer on the Michelin tires. When I got there yesterday, i asked for the person who helped me on the phone-Mr. A. He placed my order and asked if I wanted the extra coverage service which covered any damage to the tires like punctures, nail damage etc.. I said no thank you. (That was an extra $80+ that I wasn't budgeted for that). Mr. A took the order and left. I got no more info from him other than letting me know that my car was serviced & ready to go. Meantime, another energetic and alert salesman, Mr. K, was there so I talked to him, and completed the transaction, so I thought. I left and went to the car and realized I wasn't given the rebate papers by Mr. A so I went back in and talked with the Mr. K. I was given the paperwork for the rebate to do online or mail in. This young man was helpful, pleasant, and had great energy. He is an asset to the company. I felt that because I didn't buy the extra coverage, Mr. A didn't see any reason to help me anymore. If I have to go back for any reason I would definitely ask for Mr. K.

I interned at Marvin’s Quality Auto Care since September 17th 2013. Since I've been giving the opportunity for having Marvin as my mentor in his automotive shop. The experience has been an eye-opening to the real world and experiencing real world situations. I've seen Marvin work on cars and he really takes his time making sure the work he puts into is “Quality Auto Work”! He is and gives 100% Honesty, Passion and Quality Work. Every customer that I have seen has leave the shop 100% satisfied guaranteed. He also teaches me real life experiences, and taught me how to write up a car and put it in invoice. He tells me how to satisfy the customer even though he does it naturally. He has over 35yrs of experience in the Automotive Industry.

Replaced all my tires here and was offered the insurance. They gave me a great deal on the tires and I bought the insurance and I'm glad I did I needed it a few months later. Great service and very fast.

Walmart - Tire & Lube Express
It's great you can shop while your getting new tires at this Walmart location. Tires were comparable to big-o prices.
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.
