After-Hours Drop Off
Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed. With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At Byrd Automotive Repair, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. A completed Drop-Off Form will help the mechanic diagnose any problems. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Byrd Automotive Repair replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Byrd Automotive Repair today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 859-885-9121 or visit Byrd Automotive Repair today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Byrd Automotive Repair in Nicholasville, KY 40356 today.
Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Byrd Automotive Repair in Nicholasville, KY 40356, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Byrd Automotive Repair, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.
A pre-trip check up can make the difference between a safe trip and one that ends in a tragedy. The inspection aims at looking for possible defects and potential mechanical problems that could cause disaster. Before embarking on a trip you should make sure your car is fully inspected for safety. You can rely on the experts at Byrd Automotive Repair. We have pre-trip inspection experts who are able to conduct safety inspections on any car, make, and model. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring you have a safe trip. Simply drop by or give us a call at 859-885-9121.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Byrd Automotive Repair can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Chris Dunagan, 11/25/2023
Wilmore / Nicholasville / Lexington area friends, this is a shout out to Byrd Automotive in Nicholasville. They are honest. A few years ago, a used car we bought developed an expensive problem long after the regular manufacturer's warranty expired. Byrd Automotive could have charged us nearly $3K to fix it, but instead, they told us about an extended warranty campaign from the manufacturer for that particular issue for a dealer to fix it for free. Then, when one of the local Toyota dealers botched that repair job by failing to secure a snap ring holding an axle in the transmission, Byrd diagnosed that problem too, brought me back into the garage to show me what the dealer did wrong so I could take pictures while the car was up on the rack to show the dealer, and Byrd didn't charge me a dime for that help. I could tell you other stories of Byrd Automotive's help with our vehicles. The bottom line is they are honest, determined, competent, qualified, and reliable. Even with hard jobs on old vehicles (one time a rusted part on a seventeen year old truck broke one of Hayden's tools, but he still found a way to get the job done), they never let us down. The guys at Byrd Automotive are Toyota specialists with walls full of factory training certificates. I would trust them with anything, and especially if you drive a Toyota, they know more about your Toyota than the dealers do and even do their own research. I'm posting this now because even years after we moved to Ohio, I still call occasionally with Toyota questions and Gene, Cameron, and Hayden are always happy to help by sharing what they know. If you need a mechanic in the area, especially for a Toyota, Gene, Cameron, and Hayden at Byrd Automotive are rock solid, trustworthy and dependable. I appreciate them and wanted you to know about them.
