Steve and Chris are honest and competent - completely trustworthy. I took my 2000 Subaru Outback to them for both regular maintenance and when I got into an accident. Being a woman I really appreciated their patience, courteousness, and professionalism. They took time to explain things to me very well. When I got into an accident, my first instinct was to call them - I knew I'd be in good hands. They diagnosed the damage, then sent me to an auto body place they recommended, who was also fair and trustworthy.

Independent Specialists, run by Steve Lewis and Chris Calkins, is an excellent repair shop. They use OEM parts and will walk you through your repairs, before and after. When I first moved to Reno, they were recommended for some work we needed on my son's Honda, and they did an excellent job. They also provided guidance when I did some work myself (had to replace the air filter housing), and they even provided some parts that were left out of the kit, gratis. Good place to take your car for repair.

Great team, used to work for one of the Honda dealerships, so they really know their Hondas; can't vouch for their work on any other make!

I've been to Steve and Chris many times now for my truck's maintenance. They have always been very courteous, knowledgeable, and I love that they remember their customers. It's great to know when I drop my truck off they will be honest, do a great job, and are reasonably priced. I originally went to them after a word-of-mouth recommendation and I haven't been disappointed.

Over the last seven years my three kids have attended the University of Nevada in Reno, in fact my youngest is still attending. They have all had cars while attending school, and all have required repair and maintenance during this time period. Living 200 hundred miles away has meant depending on a shop in the area to take care of my children's cars. Independent Specialists has serviced and repaired them all, with excellent results.The work has ranged from oil changes to timing belt replacement. I've not actually had the pleasure of meeting Steve or Chris in person, but they have always taken the time to explain the work over the phone to me, and always left me feeling that my kids, and my kids cars were in good hands. Thank you again for all your help!
