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 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 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 have been going to John Kruger for auto repairs for years now and have never regretted it. His team is always helpful and friendly - very willing to walk me through any questions and explain the repairs and parts that are being worked on. I would recommend them to anyone!

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 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.

I second what everyone else here is saying. John is honest. Not just honest with returning customers, or old friends, but with anyone who walks in the shop. He won't sell you parts you don't need, and he won't do work he doesn't have to. For that kind of peace of mind, you would think you would have to pay a premium, but his rates are competitive as well. Go here first, and if you have already gone somewhere else, go here to get a second opinion to make sure you are getting a fair deal.

I have been bringing my vehicles to John Kruger Automotive for over a decade. They have always been honest, reasonably priced and friendly. Most recently John Kruger Automotive replaced the oxygen sensor in my Suburban. If there is one word that would describe this shop it would be honest. I have and will continue to recommend this shop to my family and friends.
