Auto Repair in Minden, NV

Minden, NV

The unincorporated town of Minden, NV, serves as the seat of Douglas County, south of Carson City along US 395 at the start of SR 88. Minden is home to a population of just over 3,000 people, across a land area of 4.3 square miles adjacent to the town of Gardnerville.

Minden was founded in 1906 by Heinrich Friedrich Dangberg Jr., who named it after a town in Germany near his father’s birthplace. The post office opened that same year, and many of Minden’s first settlers were German. Today, Minden is part of a region considered one of the top gliding spots in the world, where sailplanes have made flights of nearly 1000 miles. The historic Minden Inn, built between 1912 and 1916, has been frequented by celebrities and used for movie filming.

A Few Words from Our Customers

Amazing service!

I brought my van in on a Friday Morning. They had it diagnosed and estimated on the same day. I kept my car for the weekend and brought it back early Monday morning. They had everything fixed and even did a courtesy inspection to make sure there wasn't anything else I urgently needed done. They took me to work and even picked me up to get my van each time. Great service, friendly staff, and they didn't give you the run around! I'll be coming back for future services and even oil changes. Thank you Marcus and to your whole team!!

These guys are truly all that they say they are.

I am always skeptical with new service, but these guys are exceptional in a wonderful way. Your car will be in great hands and they stand behind their work. They are not just professional, they are also kind, honest and fun personable folks. Any customer will be truly lucky/blessed to have found Capitol Automotive to service their vehicle.

Great job Capitol Automotive... you earned a new customer.

I'd recently taken my Honda to a dealership to have airbag recall work done, and they offered to do a vehicle inspection at the same time. Their inspection revealed that my brakes needed to be repaired right away, and they pressured me to schedule the work with them at that time. Instead, I decided to try Capitol, and a similar inspection showed the brakes were not in the "dire condition" claimed by the dealership. I appreciate the care and concern shown by the folks at Capitol...without the pressure of the dealership. Great work at a good price!
