Trucks of all sizes are integral to life in Faribault, Lonsdale and the rest of Rice County. Whether you are using them as daily work vehicles, for off-roading, hauling your boat to the lake, or any of their many other purposes, they can be some of the most useful and versatile vehicles on the road. Of course, you want to keep them on the road as much as possible, so when it comes to truck repairs and servicing, you want to bring them into Mike’s Garage.
Experienced Truck Repair Technicians
Our ASE-Certified technicians at Mike’s Garage are trained across a variety of trucks, from small, gasoline-engined Ford Rangers that have been on the road for decades to the latest Ram 2500 with the Cummins Diesel engine. We know that trucks have to endure a lot of punishment, and our goal is to help truck owners get the most out of their truck.
We repair the following trucks:
- Compact pickup trucks
- Medium- and heavy-duty pickup trucks, including RAM 3500 and Ford F-450 Super Duty
- Diesel-powered pickup trucks, ranging from early Cummins-powered Dodge Rams to the latest Ford Power Stroke diesel.
Mechanical and Electrical Truck Repairs You Need
You need a shop that knows trucks if you want your repairs done right. The towing and hauling tasks you’re asking out of your Ford F-250 or GMC Canyon put a strain on your truck that most cars will never see. This means you want technicians who are familiar with the work a truck does, what it can do to your truck, and how to fix it.
- Engine Repairs (including diesel engines and turbocharged engines)
- Drivetrain and Transmission Repairs (manual, automatic)
- Suspension & Steering Repairs
- Brake Repairs (drum and disc)
- Charging System Repairs
- Cooling System Repairs
- and more!
Thorough Inspections and Accurate Diagnosis
At Mike’s Garage, we use numerous inspections, like visual and mechanical, along with road testing and computerized diagnostics to give us a clear picture of what may be wrong with your truck. We don’t just look at your complaint, but also at connected systems that could affect, or be affected by, the issue you are having. This allows us to be thorough and accurate.
Once we have a clear picture of the problem at hand, we will provide you with an overview of the problem and possible solutions. We will provide a clear write-up, along with a transparent quote, so you can clearly see what truck repairs you may need. Our technicians will also be prepared to answer questions you may have about our process or the recommended repairs.
No-Pressure Repair Recommendations
We will give you our best, most affordable repair recommendations, but we will leave it up to you from there. We hate high-pressure sales, and we’re not going to pressure our customers either. We will tell you what is vital and what is recommended, but we will not push for a decision right away. Truck repair can be costly at times, and you should take the time to weigh your options without pressure.
Truck Repairs Performed with Quality Parts
You can’t make good truck repairs with poor-quality parts. At Mike’s Garage, we use only the highest-quality original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts and top-of-the-line aftermarket parts, to ensure you get the longest life out of your vehicle. An inexpensive, poor-quality part may sound great now, but in the end, you’ll pay a lot more down the line.
