Roadside assistance is for drivers who find themselves suddenly stranded with an inoperable vehicle. Reasons why drivers call for roadside assistance may vary. A motorist may hit a pothole or foreign object that causes a tire to blow out, or a vehicle’s gas tank might reach empty before the driver can refill it.

In addition, a vehicle may need a jump-start, or the vehicle’s owner may need help accessing the vehicle after being locked out. In general, the roadside assistance service can help motorists with problems like replacing flat tires, filling empty gas tanks, jump-starting batteries, lockout assistance, as well as other minor mechanical repairs. Sometimes there is no way to prepare for the misfortunes of the road.

Sierra Care Care’s roadside assistance is designed to help you recover from these misfortunes and continue traveling.

Sierra Car Care and Tire Centers proudly serves the Roadside Assistance needs of customers in Reno, NV, Verdi, NV, Carson City, NV, and surrounding areas.

The Nevada Department of Transportation opened the last leg of the Interstate 580 Carson City Freeway to traffic on August 2.

Motorists are reminded to drive attentively and anticipate minor lane and traffic pattern changes across the area with the new freeway segment open. Periodic, minor roadside shoulder and lane closures will take place on South Carson Street and the Carson City Freeway for finishing construction.

Prior to construction of I-580, Nevada was one of only a few states without an interstate connecting to the capital city. The new segment of freeway marks completion of I-580 linking Reno and Carson City.

Since breaking ground in 2000, construction of the approximately nine-mile I-580 Carson City Freeway has been phased to best utilize available funding. Nearly six million cubic yards of earth were moved, 18 million pounds of reinforcing steel installed and more than $200 million in federal, state and local transportation funds dedicated to construct the freeway between Lakeview Hill in north Carson City and the U.S. 50 junction in the southern part of the city.

In December 2015, the freeway was officially dedicated as the Carson City Deputy Sheriff Carl Howell Memorial Freeway. Aimed at increasing traffic mobility and safety with an interstate bypass to help remove through-traffic congestion from downtown Carson City, an estimated 43,000 vehicles daily are projected to use the new southern section of freeway by 2035.

Summer is Here!

Revving up for a road trip has never been easier

thanks to a few tips our ASE Certified Mechanics would like to share about achieving safe summer travel. While vehicles need maintenance year-round, driving long distances in high temperatures adds more strain to your vehicle.

Hot asphalt is tough on tires, and a faulty radiator won’t last long if tested under harsh conditions. So before you pack up the car and your friends and family to hit the road, take a short break, check a few vitals and make sure your ride is vacation-ready.

We are happy to be your one-stop-shop for quality vehicle repair, performance wheels & tires, and gas. Thank you.

The new Virginia Street Bridge will be ready for its ribbon cutting ceremony on April 12, 2016.

Reno Mayor, Hillary Schieve, will lead the ceremony along with other guest speakers. A procession of transportation history will cross the new bridge. It will feature vehicles covering the era during which the old bridge served Reno, with a world champion mule team, several historic vehicles from the National Automobile Museum and a modern Tesla. There will also be a performance from the Reno Wind Symphony. The bridge will remain closed to vehicles for the rest of the day so people can take pictures and freely stroll on the bridge.

Public parking will be available in the City Hall Parking Garage and the Cal-Neva Parking Garage, both accessible from Center Street. Arriving early is recommended.
