Most Popular Auto Repair & Maintenance Services


Brake Repair in Reno, NV | Southgate Automotive

Brake Inspection, Service & Repair

When it comes to your vehicle’s braking system, there’s no room for procrastination or error.

Also call us if you need any brake-related repair, including diagnostic, pad replacement, lining replacement, wheel cylinder, master cylinder, emergency brakes, and brake rotors.

Computer Diagnostics in Reno, NV | Southgate Automotive

Computer Diagnostics

With today’s modern automobiles, it’s becoming increasingly important to have strong diagnostic capabilities to correctly communicate with onboard vehicle computers and determine exactly what’s causing vehicle issues. At Southgate Automotive, we are proud to say we have state-of-the art computer diagnostic equipment, and we will continue to invest in the latest automotive technology and ongoing training for our mechanics.

Cooling System Service in Reno, NV | Southgate Automotive

Cooling Systems

Failure of a vehicle's cooling system is one of the most common causes of a breakdown. The cooling system regulates the temperature in your engine, and protects it from overheating and damage, so when there’s a cooling system problem, your car’s overall health is in danger—and you’re risking a breakdown. If your temperature gauge had been running high or you’re experiencing a coolant leak, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle to SGA for service.

Timing Belt Replacement in Reno, NV | Southgate Automotive

Timing Belt Replacement

Avoid severe engine damage or failure by replacing your timing belt when it needs to be. Does your vehicle have rough idling or difficulty starting? Are there cracks on your timing belt? All of these are signs of a potentially worn or stretched timing belt. SGA can assist you in diagnosing and replacing timing belts to help keep your engine performing and avoid costly future repairs.

Tune-ups in Reno, NV | Southgate Automotive


When your car is properly tuned, the engine, computer system, fuel system, ignition system, and emission system are all working together in perfect harmony. When it’s not, your vehicle is not performing with optimum power and efficiency. As part of a tune-up at SGA, we’ll check (and replace if necessary) your sparkplugs, ignition coils, distributor cap and rotor, and ignition wires. When we’re done, you’ll enjoy a better ride, and likely save money at the gas pump.

Vehicle Factory Maintenance in Reno, NV | Southgate Automotive

Vehicle Factory Maintenance

Vehicle factory maintenance intervals are designed to improve the dependability, durability, and resale value of your car or truck. Depending on your vehicle’s service interval mileage, our mechanics may inspect your steering and suspension components, fluids, belts and hoses, and more during a preventive maintenance check-up. Preventive maintenance also protects your vehicle against potential major auto repairs.
