Our summers here in Henderson, NV are infamous. They push normal recommended automobile maintenance to its limits. At our main office here on Warm Springs between North Arroyo Grande and Stephanie St., our staff understands the severe conditions of the Las Vegas heat, and bring that unique experience to our jobs everyday. We keep your car running and cool through the long Mojave summers.
We are minutes away from the outdoor fun and activities at nearby Sunset Park. Many locals stop here on the way home to have one of our trained mechanics perform crucial diagnostics on their vehicles. Whether you’re coming in from Green Valley or headed off to Paradise, commuting long or near, the extreme strain of desert driving requires experienced local mechanics with a speciality in air conditioning service, as well as an intimate understanding of the effects extreme heat can have on your battery, radiator, tires, and more. Consider the importance of such diligent maintenance under normal circumstances during any average American summer — now imagine how indispensable it becomes when you are looking at most days hitting over 110 degrees in the Las Vegas Valley sun.
Looking down Warm Springs west from our main office, we see the sun set again on another day on our desert home, another long time out in the sun, in traffic, and in the unforgiving elements. While winding down Duarte Drive or Manti Place, or taking a long commute down Warm Springs in the summer, your automobile is more than just your ride, it can be your lifeline.
Every time we go shopping or maneuver through mile after scorching mile of hot asphalt parking lots, temperatures on our tires alone can hit over 170 degrees on the average Las Vegas or Henderson summer day. This particular challenge requires a specialized staff with years of experience in what we call “Desert Mechanics,” a management team committed to a singular business vision, and the local customer base willing to work with us on the particular needs of desert-proofing their vehicle with the heightened maintenance these harsh conditions require. On the part of the vehicle owner, paying extra attention to your cars fluids, from oil to freon, is essential. Often overlooked, but just as vulnerable to the excessive heat of the Henderson summer is your car’s battery, which can drain quickly due to constant AC use. Also often neglected but of special importance is your vehicle’s radiator and the HVAC system itself. These issues require your frequent attention and our professional care to prevent catastrophic problems down the road. We can take care of the maintenance and repairs, but even here in Henderson, NV, from neighborhoods to mini-malls, your job as a desert driver is to stay prepared, to keep extra water, extra antifreeze, a good spare tire and a first aid kit at hand in case you do ever experience a break down. These basic steps, as well as knowing your neighborhood, and being familiar with alternate routes in case of traffic jams, can assist you in getting on your way, with some help from your mechanic.
