Behind the scenes
Who we are

My name is Doug Torseth. I have been in the automotive industry for over 30 years. Over 10 of those years have been with Smith Nielsen Automotive in Apple Valley, with over 5 of those as owner / operator. We offer a seven-bay shop with five full-time technicians and myself as the service advisor. Our goal is to provide a reliable one-stop source for all your automotive needs! In my spare time, I enjoy camping with my family, four wheeling, skiing and golfing.

Car Care Tips

Get those belts checked

Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments. It's crucial for your car's safety.

Check the air filter frequently

Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked approximately every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

Before you hit the road

It is a good idea to do a safety check before starting out on a trip. A visit to your dealer can help ensure safe and pleasant driving the whole summer long.

Fluids are important

Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids are important to your vehicle.

Tires are important

Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance.

Your engine is your friend

Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent
