Meet Richard Keeling

Every vehicle owner needs a neighborhood service center that offers trustworthy automotive care and friendly staff, all at a price that suits their budget. That’s what Sun Auto Service has been providing for over 40 years. There’s a myth that many consumers believe, that the only way to get the best automotive care is through the dealership. The fact of the matter is though, Sun Auto Service offers the same dealership-quality service with ASE Certified Technicians and state-of-the-art equipment, all at a much better price. While most dealers choose to service vehicles of only their brand, Sun Auto Service is able to service all makes and models from the family minivan, luxury sedans, heavy duty trucks, and everything in between.

Why should you choose Sun Auto Service when searching for auto repair shops in North Las Vegas? This family-owned and operated business, established in 1978, has a philosophy that customers should receive top quality automotive service for maintenance and repairs, by friendly knowledgeable technicians that are dedicated to their craft by staying up to date with all the latest trends in the automotive industry.

Store Manager, Richard Keeling, is keeping customers informed and pleased with their choice in automotive care at Sun Auto Service #54. Get to know a little about Richard and what he enjoys most about working for Sun Auto Service and the number one question he hears most often as well as the number one myth he would like to dispel:

How long have you been in the automotive repair industry?

I’ve been in the industry for just over 15 years.

How did you get your start?

I started in an entry-level position doing general service for a competitor and have worked my way up through the ranks.

What’s your favorite auto repair to complete?

Any repair that ends with a satisfied customer back on the road is my favorite kind of repair. We understand that breakdowns never occur at a convenient time and drivers are eager to get back to their busy lives. We try to complete services as promptly and smoothly as possible.

What’s your favorite type of vehicle to make repairs on?

I enjoy making all kinds of repairs, but I find that newer models are always fascinating. The great thing about automobiles is that they’re always improving. Newer vehicles are equipped with the latest technologies that are interesting and fun to see.

What are the qualities a Sun Auto Service technician possesses?

Our technicians are the best in the business and each of them possesses a variety of skill sets, allowing us to service all areas of many vehicles. Above all though, our technicians are knowledgeable, effective, efficient, and good team players.

What type of training do your technicians need to complete? What’s included in this training?

Our technicians undergo many certifications and training classes from ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) and others.

What’s the most commonly asked question you get about automotive repair?

“How much for brakes?”  Brake systems are made up of many different components. That’s why, we, at Sun Auto Service, perform a complete inspection and evaluation of the braking system at no charge with no obligation to the customer.

If you could dismiss one myth about automotive maintenance/repair, what would that be?

That you just need to change the oil every 3 months. Oil change frequencies can vary depending on your driving habits, the climate you’re in, and most of all, the type of oil your vehicle requires. Conventional oils require changes more frequently compared to a Full Synthetic oil which can often last much longer. My best advice though is no matter what, stay up to date on your vehicle’s maintenance schedule and your vehicle will last a lot longer and will help to avoid costly repairs.

What is your favorite part of the job? Your favorite part about working for Sun Auto Service?

Meeting new people that become loyal customers and friends. It’s really rewarding to help solve their automotive issues with the help of my excellent team.

What’s the number one tip you would provide to car owners about maintaining their vehicle?

It’s simple, really. Take care of your car and it will take care of you!
