Mechanic with Loaner Cars

ase-certified-master-technicianAre you in desperate need of a vehicle while yours is in the shop? Have you thought of everyone who could possibly lend you their vehicle for a few days and come up empty-handed? At Clark Automotive, we understand that you can’t put your life on hold when something goes wrong with your vehicle, and you can’t always find someone to lend you theirs. That’s why we offer loaner cars to all of our customers in need of transportation while their vehicles are being repaired or otherwise. If you’ve broken down, if your vehicle has been totaled, or if you need to have your vehicle serviced over a number of days, don’t worry about missing work or appointments; just borrow a loaner car! Our auto shop provides loaner cars in Spring Lake Park, Blaine, Coon Rapids and Lino Lakes, MN, helping our customers live their lives without the inconvenience of being without a vehicle.

Breakdown Loaner Cars and Courtesy Rides

When your vehicle first breaks down, you might not be thinking about how you’re going to get through the next day – or even the next week – without a vehicle because you might not yet know just how bad the damage to your vehicle is. Whether you’ve been in an accident or simply broken down, you’re probably focused on how you’re getting home and how you’re getting your vehicle to a repair shop – we’ll take care of that for you. If you’re stranded with a broken down car, don’t wait around for hours for someone to come get you, and don’t feel you have to walk to the nearest town; just give us a call! We’ll give you a courtesy ride and set you up with a loaner car so that you can get anywhere you need to go. With service like this available, there’s no reason to be stressed when your vehicle breaks down – you’ll know you’re prepared and have a team of mechanics and friends behind you.

Loaner Cars During Vehicle Maintenance and Repair

Whether you’re bringing your vehicle in for routine maintenance or scheduled repairs, a breakdown or an accident, we’ve got you covered. While your vehicle is being tended to, rather than having to wait around for hours, call someone to drive you home, find a way to get to work without your vehicle, or otherwise, we’ll provide you with a loaner car. You can enjoy the benefits of a loaner car no matter what services you need, including any of our many maintenance and repair services:

Brake Installation Blaine MN

Don’t Ignore Your Brakes!

Brake Repair Blaine MNAre your brakes squeaking? Have they been for a while? Or maybe you’re worried because you now have to put your brake petal all the way to the floor to fully stop – if this sounds like something you’re dealing with contact Clark Automotive. We offer Automobile Brake Installation Services for Blaine, MN and the surrounding areas. Don’t wait to get your brakes fixed, they are one of the most important mechanisms on your vehicle.

Brakes Keep Everyone Safe

Neglecting to service your brakes can be harmful to you, your loved ones and everyone else on the road. Imagine, if just once, your brakes didn’t bring your vehicle to a slow halt. That’s scary, the results can be extremely damaging and even fatal.

Not only are brakes an extremely crucial for safety but they are used very frequently. In one trip it’s not uncommon to brake over ten times – every shift, turn, stop sign, red light, speed limit reduction, slow moving for the vehicle ahead of you and to arrive safely at your final destination. Don’t keep putting brake repairs off, you use them more than you notice.

Worn Brake Pads Cost Extra

If the safety isn’t enough to get you to pick up your phone, than the cost might. If you continue to drive on extremely worn brake pads the material will wear down to nothing. Which leaves you with the metal caliper grinding against the rotor, this leads to less effective braking and then you’ll not only need your brake pads replaced but you’ll also need to get your rotors resurfaced or replaced. The effects add up.
