CUSTOMER SERVICE

Today's cars, light trucks, and sport-utility vehicles are high-tech marvels with digital dashboards, oxygen sensors, electronic computers, unibody construction, and more. They run better, longer, and more efficiently than models of years past.

But when it comes to repairs, some things stay the same. The following tips should help you along the way:

Do your homework before taking your vehicle in for repairs or service.

  • Read the owner's manual to learn about the vehicle's systems and components.
  • Follow the recommended service schedules.
  • Keep a log of all repairs and service.

When you think about it, you know your car better than anyone else. You drive it every day and know how it feels and sounds when everything is right. So don't ignore its warning signals.

Use all of your senses to inspect your car frequently. Check for:

  • Unusual sounds, odors, drips, leaks, smoke, warning lights, gauge readings.
  • Changes in acceleration, engine performance, gas mileage, fluid levels.
  • Worn tires, belts, hoses.
  • Problems in handling, braking, steering, vibrations.
  • Note when the problem occurs.
  • Is it constant or periodic?
  • When the vehicle is cold or after the engine has warmed up?
  • At all speeds? Only under acceleration? During braking? When shifting?
  • When did the problem first start?

Once you are at our location, communicate your findings.

  • Be prepared to describe the symptoms.
  • Carry a written list of the symptoms that you can give us.
  • Resist the temptation to suggest a specific course of repair. Just as you would with your physician, tell us where it hurts and how long it's been that way, but let the technician diagnose and recommend a remedy.

Stay involved. . . Ask questions.

  • Ask as many questions as you need. Do not be embarrassed to request lay definitions.
  • Don't rush the technician to make an on-the-spot diagnosis. You may ask to be called and apprised of the problem, course of action, and costs before work begins.
  • Before you leave, be sure you understand all shop policies regarding labor rates, guarantees, and acceptable methods of payment.
  • Leave a telephone number where you can be called.

They do good work. Prices are reasonable. This is the only place I take my car.

Had a great experience with Jeff at Canyon Automotive. Quick, honest and afforable. I highly recommend him for future customers. Thx, Jeff.


-Tracy Ostrom

Fair, honest, skilled; in short, all the things you hope a mechanic will be. Have been having my cars serviced there for over 10 years, and recommend it to everyone I know.


-Anonymous

I've been going to Canyon Automotive for both factory services and to have repairs done. I've been burned by both mechanics and auto dealers in the past, but have always found these folks to be trustworthy.


-Jeff K.

I have been taking my 2001 Ford Explorer to Jeff & Mike for the past 5 years for repairs and servicing. They have always been fast, fair and accurate in their assessments of what is wrong and their work is impeccable. I highly recommend them.
