At Mike's Tire & Auto you'll find the expertise and premium parts needed to get your hybrid or electric vehicle back on the road in no time. The days of being stuck with dealer repairs, and the sky high bills that come with them, are over. At Mike's Tire & Auto you'll find highly trained and qualified mechanics with expertise in every area that makes your hybrid or EV different from everyday vehicles, such as electric drivetrain components and regenerative braking systems.
Your hybrid car's electric motor allows it to save gas when driving around in stop and go traffic. Getting your car rolling strains your engine much more than cruising along at a steady pace. This is where the torque of an electric motor comes into the hybrid drive system, and where your gas savings come from. At Mike's Tire & Auto, our experts are trained to keep those savings coming, by ensuring that the electric motors in your hybrid or EV are in optimal working condition. We provide diagnostic testing, repairs, and preventative maintenance for drivers near Sunriver to make sure your hybrid or EV remains at peak performance.
Without your vehicle's battery and charging systems, those fuel-saving electric motors will have no power to turn. The specialized batteries in hybrid and electric vehicles are the costliest part of the entire system, so they should be serviced by mechanics that have expert training in the field. At Mike's Tire & Auto we ensure that only certified technicians, fully trained across all major manufacturers' power systems, will service your vehicle's battery and charging systems. As with your vehicle's electric motors, we can diagnose and repair issues, as well as sourcing and installing quality replacement parts should the job require it.
The capacity for regenerative braking is another clever feature of your hybrid or EV. This kind of braking essentially puts the electric motor(s) into reverse, assisting the mechanical brake pads and slowing the vehicle while generating electricity to charge the battery. A beneficial side effect of this system is the longevity that drivers see in the life of their brake system. At Mike's Tire & Auto we carefully monitor your vehicle's brake pads to ensure the pads last as long as possible, saving you even more money in the process. When it's finally time to replace the pads, we'll have you back on the road within a matter of hours.
If you are looking for great service for your hybrid car or electric vehicle in the Sunriver OR area call Mike's Tire & Auto today at 541-593-2554.
What People Say About Us
Mike's saved the day. After a week of low tire pressure readings on a front tire that never panned out, we went to Mike's before a day of driving for one last check. Despite being fully booked for several days they squeezed us in. They found a nail in a rear tire which our inspections by 2 other dealers in the past week didn't catch. Tire fixed in a timely manner, we now know our sensors need to be reset, and we are back on the road.
We broke down in our van traveling through Bend, and these guys helped us get back on the road within a few hours, and for a very reasonable price. We were very impressed with their service and friendliness! Would highly recommend.
Ordered up a new set of tires and when I got my truck back found out they had fixed my air conditioner too! They go the extra mile for their customers. They do great work. Would highly recommend them.
These guys are amazing... Fast, courteous and fair! I was in town on vacation when my check engine light went on. As it turned out, I needed a catalytic converter. They were able to overnight the part and have installed first thing the following morning... And all for a very fair price. Thanks to Todd for making everything so easy! I would recommend these guys anytime.
Sending out a great big thanks and gratitude for quality service! We were in Sunriver on spring break and not only did Mike get us in same day but he graciously didn't even charge us for fixing a tire that could've turned into a great big problem on the way home. Thank you so much for the care and kindness in keeping our family safe.
The folks at Mikes Tire and Auto really came through for me! My Jeep's water pump started to leak when my family and I were visiting Sunriver. On top of that I had a sick 10 month old and we needed to leave early. I called Mikes right when they opened and they got me in immediately, I also asked them to do hoses and a new serpentine belt. They told me there were going to try to have it done by 5, it was done by 2:30.
They were professional and prompt. The work was high quality, no leaks and a fair price too! I strongly recommend this shop.
At the end of my honeymoon I discovered one of my tires had developed a leaky valve and Mikes offered to fix it and they fixed it in 15 minutes. There would have been no way to make it back over the mountain passes to home without their help and they even fixed it for free. Thanks guys for being there and making sure my return trip was a safe one.
I was staying in Sunriver when my alternator went out. Mike's finished the job in less time than expected and less cost than quoted. A quality shop in a convenient location that won't take advantage of your misfortune while on vacation.
