I really loved going to Mike Palmer Auto. Vanessa was so very nice and totally explained everything to me so I could understand (since I know very little about cars). I didn't feel any pressure and I will for sure take my car back for further repairs as needed.

Mike Palmer Automotive is the absolute best auto repair shop in SLC! They are thorough, honest, fair, and fast. The cost of work performed is also so much less than other shops across the valley.

Obtained an Oil Change. Everything went smoothly except i did not receive information on when i would need another oil change. When i got home i realized that no sticker was placed on my windshield while the previous sticker was partially torn off.

Very knowledgeable and I felt no pressure to get any recommended work done. They did a great job at explaining what was wrong and the pros and cons of fixing or not fixing any problems they found. They shopped around to find the best value of parts needed, not simply buying the most expensive, convenient part, which saved me money. Thanks guys!

I appreciated their honesty and fairness. However, I didn't love their lack of communication. I didn't receive promised phone calls or updates until I reached out. Plus, they kept my car 3 days longer than I was anticipating. Having said that, I am very confident that my repair was expertly completed and have complete confidence in the warranty I recevied for the work done.

First experience with them but based on the repairs and the interaction, I'll be taking both of my vehicles in for regular maintenance and repairs.

Question Answered by Mike Palmer Automotive
When Do I Have To Check Or Chang The Timing Chain In My Car? on 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara
There is not a factory recommended interval for replacing a timing chain. If you stick to the factory recommended service and inspection, you will generally experience minimal problems with this vehicle.
