Auburn Mountain View Faculty helps with vehicle repairs at Self Serve Garage

07/09/11 COMMENTS 0

Auburn Mountain-View faculty members know how important it is to help young adults; that’s why Kenneth Elliott, of Auburn Mountain-View High School did not hesitate assisting a youth in distress.

Saturday, September 03, 2011, Kenneth witnessed a young man trying to save money by replacing his own brakes. Unfortunately, this young man did not have all the necessary tools and experience for the repair. Mr. Elliott wanted to assist the young man, but did not have the tools or experience himself, and both Mr. Elliott and the young man did not want to pay full service shop prices.

Fortunate for this young man, Mr. Elliott remembered about a do-it-yourself shop one of his student’s fathers opened this year. The two came to Self Serve Garage looking to save money. For a little over $70, the two had the tools, equipment, and even assistance to complete the brake repair.

Saving money by replacing a muffler system at Self Serve Garage!

27/02/11 COMMENTS 0

A young husband and wife decide to do a project together, replace a muffler system on their vehicle.  They live in a condo downtown Seattle, no garage space available for automotive repairs/modifications.  The husband is somewhat of a handyman, so he researched the repair/modification on the web (AutoMd and other sites).

According to AutoMd, the replacement of the exhaust system for a 2008 Mitsubishi EVO is over $700 at a full service shop, parts alone are approximately $400. His system was more because it was a special exhaust system, but they saved by installing it here at SSG, less than $100, for approximately 3hrs of shop time.

What a deal!

The couple smiled when they realized how much money they saved.

“I don’t know what this would have cost at a full service shop, but I know it would have cost more than here.” they told us at Self Serve Garage. I’m glad your here, and we will be back”.
