Spring is in the air, and it's time to finally roll the windows down, turn up the radio, and take in the fresh air. However, before hitting the road this spring, make sure your car or truck is spring ready and in safe working order.

I am very impressed with John Kruger Automotive and their expertise! If you need a mechanic you can trust, this is definitely the place to go to. John is first and foremost a very kind person and on top of it all he is very honest and will not try and make you do unnecessary repairs and charge you for them, but will help you get your car back on the road with the repairs that are only necessary at the time. My alternator went out so I went to John to replace it for me and had him look at a few other problems I was having (popping/clicking noises coming from my front passenger side tire when I made turns, and leaking oil from somewhere that I could not find and the people at Jiffy Lube did not know either). While he was working on my alternator he looked at the other problems and found that the clicking popping was coming from my CV joint that was failing. He looked at the other side and saw that it was almost about to start do the same thing. He advised to have them both replaced and of course many of you are probably thinking typical mechanic, however, when he looked at the oil leak he said that where it was coming from would require him to open up a lot more areas which would require more work and more time and he recommended not to worry about the leak because the leak was so minimal and it isn't causing any damage at this time. He said that my timing belt would need to be changed in about 60,000 miles (my car is at 146000 right now) anyway and that would be the best time to figure out the leak because he would already need to be up in there anyway. So I know long story and a lot of ranting, but seriously he is an awesome mechanic that will not try and sell you on things that you don't need at the time and wants to get you back on the road as soon as possible. I would highly recommend going to John Kruger Automotive if you need any repairs for your vehicle!!!

I recently had my truck worked at this shop and the service was top notch and the price was very reasonable. I was quoted a reasonable price for some suspension work. I had to leave town right after I left the truck at the shop and didn't return for a couple days. When I did return I found out that John had been able to source the necessary parts at a cheaper price (due to being able to wait a little longer to get the job done) unbeknownst to me and therefore he charged me less than he quoted me. I'm definitely bringing my business to John again, I have not found this level of integrity, honesty and workmanship in many places, let alone at a reasonable price.

I am extremely happy with the work John did on my Tacoma (wheel bearings, brakes, belt, four wheel alignment). I highly recommend his shop.

Kruger Automotive is an easy decision for me and my company, as it should be for anybody else. They simply get "it" over there. If you treat your customers honestly, fairly and with urgency they will rely on you. I have never felt though a price was too high or unnecessary work was being done. My entire fleet of vehicles are always ready to serve their purpose because Kruger Automotive makes sure that they are.

After bouncing between 3 mechanics trying to diagnose what's wrong with my car, John/his staff found the problem and had the car back on the road in 1 day. Didn't even charge me the full inspection fee since the issue was found within 30 min. Very professional, expeditious, and fairly priced. Highly recommended

Was VERY impressed with John and his shop today. I Have just recently moved to Salt Lake from Boise Idaho and have had trouble looking for an honest mechanic. I think I have found my guy. He was very understanding and was willing to squeeze me into his extra tight schedule for a small fix. I normally dont like taking my car to a shop, I like fixing things on my own. But I live in an apartment and dont always have room for the needed tools. They took car of me in a timely manner and at a very low price. I HIGHLY recommend John Kruger and his crew. Thanks John!

I have been coming to John Kruger for all my automotive needs for years now. He is honest, has integrity, takes great car of my cars and is reasonably priced. Even when I lived in Washington State I would have John service my car when I was in town on holidays. I have recommended many people to his shop and they have all had great experiences. He is the only person I will take my cars to because I trust him and know that I will be well taken care of.

I reached out to John Kruger Automotive on a recommendation from a good friend. I had suspension issues that needed repair on my Toyota Tacoma. When my wife brought it in to be looked at, John recognized an issue with the damaged leaf spring that could break my fuel line (Toyota has since issued a recall on this). He thought it would be dangerous to keep driving. My wife did not have time to be stranded at the shop while being fixed. A member a John's team drove her where she needed to go. When Toyota issued its recall 2 years later, they required a letter from our mechanic to certify it was repaired by them. John promptly returned a signed letter within days of us contacting him for it. In short, the entire team at John Kruger Automotive was helpful and responsive in everything we've needed from them.
