Sierra Car Care and MST Tire CenterCommunity support is important for our city’s growth and success, that is why we would like to encourage shoppers like yourself, to fuel or “Pump-it-Up” at our gas stations located in the Reno and Sparks area.

Every month we donate a portion of sales from the pump at our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Center locations, and a portion of new tire sales from MST Tire Center, to benefit a local charity. Each month we will name a new charity for the proceeds to help. You can help these charities too, just by purchasing from Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center.

We call it “Gas for Goodness.” All donations in April will support the Solace Tree. Every Wednesday, we’ll make a donation from the pump for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street.

So Pump-it-Up on Wednesdays at your local Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers, or get new tires on Saturdays from the Mill Street location (only), and you can help to make a difference. A difference in our community.

MORE ABOUT THE SOLACE TREE, OUR LOCAL CHARITY OF THE MONTH:
The mission of the Solace Tree is that all children, teens and their family members have the freedom to express their feelings associated with death in a safe and loving environment. Our peer support programs and educational opportunities help children and teens learn to cope and adjust to the changes in their lives.

In 2002, while teaching at an elementary school and finishing his Masters degree in school counseling, Emilio Parga discovered he had cancer. He was also assisting students who had lost parents to suicide, accidental death and cancer. In his attempt to provide these children with emotional support, he realized that many kids and teenagers in Northern Nevada had lost a parent, sibling or caregiver throughout the year, and that there were no grief support programs for them. Knowing all too well a child or teen’s need for support when a family member or caregiver dies, Emilio decided there was no time to wait and he created the Solace Tree in 2004.

Car Tune-up from Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center

Much like your body, your car needs a regular check up to keep it running smoothly and prevent big problems.

That’s the job of a tune-up.

Depending on the mileage and type of car, a tune-up generally includes replacing
a few small parts that don’t
cost much, but they wear down easily and lower your car’s performance. And these parts can cause very expensive damage when they’re worn.

Typical tune-ups include replacing spark plugs, fuel induction service, changing the air filter and fuel filter, as well as inspecting other system components for wear or damage.

If you’re not sure when your car needs a tune-up, check your owner’s manual for a schedule. Or call us for advice.

Like your health, it’s a lot less expensive and much easier to do a little preventative maintenance now, than pay to fix a bigger problem later.

Gas for goodnessShakespeare Animal Fund

Every Wednesday in March, we’ll make a donation for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street. All donations in March will support the Shakespeare Animal Fund.

For many elderly and disabled their animals mean everything in the world to them, and when their animals become ill or injured they have no money for emergency veterinary care. That’s where Shakespeare Animal Fund steps in.

Founded in January 2004 in memory of a dog named Shakespeare, the organization’s mission statement is to stop the suffering of animals by paying emergency veterinary bills for elderly, disabled and other low income individuals. And to date the fund has paid out more than $275,000, most in the northern Nevada and northern California areas. A registered 501©(3), all donations are tax deductible.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support our local, Shakespeare Animal Fund by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires (Mill Street location only).

Auto mechanic checking car battery

If your vehicle’s electrical system seems to be haunted, turning devices on and off, or creating problems on start-up, you may need to speak to a professional.

The electrical system is powered by, and dependent on, the car battery and alternator. If the battery is not charged, or the alternator is not producing enough power, your vehicle and devices may not run properly or perform correctly.

What are some causes of electrical problems?

  • Insufficient battery charge (or defective battery)
  • Starter or alternator
  • Bad spark plug and/or wires
  • Blown fuses or bad sensors
  • Bad master control unit

Intermittent electrical issues are the most difficult to find and fix yourself. When a fuse “blows”, circuits lose their continuity and devices stop functioning. We can check any code using our advanced electrical diagnostic equipment. Save time and money by starting at the root of the problem.

Why service your electrical system?

  • May increase gas mileage
  • Ensures smooth running engine and inside components
  • More powerful performance

In many cases, early intervention can be the difference between a small problem $ and a big one $$$. Bring your vehicle into any of our Reno or Sparks locations for an electrical diagnostic check. Our fully qualified ASE Certified Technicians will do everything possible to keep your car running safely and efficiently.

SPECIAL OFFER: FREE BATTERY CHECK / TEST!
Check battery charge and inform you if battery is in good condition
or needs replacing. Offer Expires: February 28, 2013
Mention Coupon Code: TEST

Gas for goodnessNorthern Nevada Childrens Cancer Foundation

Every Wednesday in February, we’ll make a donation for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street. All of February’s donations will support the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation.

When you donate to Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation, you join our cause to support children in our community. A gift of any size will greatly benefit a family whose child is undergoing cancer treatment or suffering late effects from treatment. When a child is stricken with cancer, the needs are great.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support our local, Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires (Mill Street location only).

Shop Local at Sierra Car Care and MST Tire CenterAs you shop this holiday season, remember to support local business. By shopping at locally owned businesses, you help to boost our local economy and sometimes your own wallet. Let me explain how.

Buy Local – Support Yourself
When purchasing from a locally owned business, rather than from
a nationally owned business, significantly more of your money
is re-circulated on the local level through business-to-business
purchases, increased labor force, and promotional offers, which helps
to strengthen the economic  base
of the community.

Don’t just Shop – Invest & Create Jobs
When you shop any locally owned independent business, you are investing
in our local economy with everything you buy. This investment helps build
a strong local job market by increasing the need for employees, while
encouraging competitive consumer prices.

Buy Local – Support the Community
An average of 250% more support is provided for non-profit organizations
and local charities from small local business owners than from large companies.
At Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center we are dedicated to giving back
to our local community. A portion of your purchase at the pump on
Wednesdays and tires on Saturdays (at Mill Street location only) is donated
to a different local charity every month.

You see, by choosing to pump local at any of our full service Sierra Car Care
gas stations or purchasing tires from MST Tire Center, you are helping to keep
money in our local economy and  boost the job market.

We, at Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Centers would like to offer you our
Customer Loyalty Bonus when you Shop Local. So, remember us when
shopping for your family this holiday season and  you could save:

Buy any $100 Gift Card for only $90
or any $50 Gift Card for $45

Our goal is to build a strong, vibrant community that offers the value, the
professionalism and the services you need for all your vehicle maintenance
needs. We look forward to serving you! Happy Holidays!

Shop local. Buy local. Support local.

Windshield Wipers: Don’t wait for failure
As the seasons change, we enter again into another cold and wet winter. When you are visiting family or taking a trip, the worst time to realize you need new windshield wiper blades is while traveling in the rain or snow. If you know your windshield wipers need maintenance, don’t wait for failure.
Windshield Wipers at Sierra Car Care

Ninety percent of all driving decisions are based on a clear unobstructed view of the road. This means good visibility is a priority, especially during wet weather when vision may
be impaired by water, road splash, sleet or snow on
the windshield.

Our recommendation is to change your windshield wiper blades every spring and fall. Over time wiper blades will build up with dirt, grime, and are affected by the sun’s harsh UV rays – even if the wipers aren’t used much. This causes the soft rubber edge to break down or deteriorate.

There are two options for replacement of your windshield wipers:

  • Replace rubber insert for your existing wiper blades
  • Replace entire windshield wiper blades

Replacing the whole blade helps avoid problems caused by improperly fitting inserts, which can increase noise, scratch your windshield or create a safety hazard. Some vehicles have different sized wiper blades for driver and passenger sides. Please see your owner’s manual to determine what size and connection you need if replacing yourself.

If you bring your vehicle to any of our Sierra Car Care service stations or MST Tire Center, we can determine what size blades you need and will top off your windshield wiper fluid FREE with the purchase of any 2 new windshield wiper blades. Our goal is to provide performance products and quality customer service.

Gas for goodnessTahoe Players Miracle on 34th Street the Musical

For the month of December we are donating to Tahoe Players and Evelyn Mount.

Tahoe Players Association is a community theatrical company with a primary focus on quality theater performance. The company utilizes actors, singers, dancers, and musicians of all ages spanning northern Nevada and California.

Evelyn Mount (since 1976) has provided holiday meals to thousands of Reno and Sparks families through the Community Outreach Food Drive. This wonderful program accepts food, gift cards from local grocery stores, clothing and monetary donations at 2530 Cannan St. in northeast Reno. There is also a food donation bin at the the Sak-n-Save  grocery store at 1901 Silverada Blvd., off Oddie Blvd.

We would like to encourage everyone to take joy in the small moments that fill our lives. Let us help give back to others this holiday season by sharing our time, talents or treasures.

We’ll be making a donation for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support our charities of the month by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires (Mill Street location only).
