Cyrus Kulsrud likes to help people with the experience he has gained over several years. That is the reason he opened Cy Guy’s Auto Repair located at 105 Main Street S. in Chatfield, Minn.

Kulsrud’s experience comes from the fields of both education and hands on experience. With an Associate’s Degree in Automotive Technology from South East Tech in Winona, Minn., an Associate’s Degree in Collision Refinishing from Wyotech in Laramie, Wyo., and a certificate for Engine Repair from Advanced Automotive Engines in Colorado Springs, Colo. he certainly has the education needed to make his business a successful one.

And after spending six years working as a mechanic for McCabe Repairs in Preston, Minn. in addition to other mechanic opportunities, Kulsrud most certainly has the hands on experience as well.

Kulsrud says he has always “had a passion for cars” saying he “really enjoys the satisfaction of figuring out a difficult problem” which he has done for many appreciative customers. Kulsrud also enjoys helping people and “has found a niche in the automotive business,” he says.

As a real people person, Kulsrud states “I love helping customers, it just so happens to be in the automotive business” because he has combined two things he enjoys - people and cars.

The business was purchased on August 15, 2014 and opened on September 5, 2014. The name Cy Guy’s came about as friends have always called him “Cy Guy” as a nickname for Cyrus.

Some of the services offered at Cy Guy’s Auto Repair are alignments, oil changes, brake inspections, tire inspections, brakes, oil changes, tires, and much more. Bring your car in when those pesky dash lights come on and they will fix the problem for you.

Cy Guy’s is a Napa Auto Care Center which means Kulsrud can offer a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty that covers parts and labor and is recognized nationwide.

Kulsrud offered this car care tip: “it seems everyone knows they should get their car checked before winter but spring rolls around and there could be a new set of problems” to watch out for.

He explains “being that we just came out of our cold season and with tire pressure monitoring systems, lights could be coming on, because tires could be overinflated if they were pumped up for the winter.

Also, customers have their antifreeze checked before winte .....
