Stan's was great the only issue I had was my warranty only covered 95$ an hour in labor and they charged 111$.

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2016

Always dependable.

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2016

My experience was excellent. I called for a tow to the shop and he did a great job, and gave me a ride. the main thing that I came away with was how very nice all of the people at Stan's are. My visit was definitely a good one, thanks so much.

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2016

Fast, friendly service with a good explanation of what was done.

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2016

Had to go back the next day to get a couple of minor things taken care of. Stan's took care of it.

From towing to finish, I am pleased with the work.

Front licence plate has a broken screw from towing, however I may be able to fix it. Thanks

Good communication, honesty, and follow through on service.

by - Verified Customer July 20, 2016

The day I came in, I had no car and needed a ride home which was provided for me free of charge, which was greatly appreciated. The time that my car was fixed was done before the estimated date which was great. Everyone was very friendly and nice regarding the situation and my car was fixed wonderfully.

by - Verified Customer July 15, 2016

It was fine, but they should have had more loaner cars since I was with out mine for over a week.

by - Verified Customer July 14, 2016

I was expecting a huge bill for a VW water pump (well, huge to me, anyway). Turns out, thanks to their record-keeping, the pump was under warranty! Thus, no cost to me. Not to forget Jared (sorry if the spelling is wrong). This guy is a car geek, and explains things in lay-peoples' terms! What a resource and treasure he is.

by - Verified Customer June 24, 2016

My wife had 2 items that are tricky to find - Gas fill shuts off at pump frequently & car dies when idle slows. We paid $750.00 but did not fix the problems. I know these are tricky problems and they tried what they could, but it's a lot of money for no fix. Eddie is so awesome and helpful and the Tech's are great to work with also. I will continue to bring my vehicles to Stan's unless we have multiple outcomes like this one.

The repairs escalated based on their initial plan. They did all the things necessary and everything worked as it should when they were finished.

by - Verified Customer June 22, 2016

The service was friendly, direct and clear regarding estimated costs. Jarod kept us informed when we needed tow to shop, pick up and drop off. Regarding repairs, he was thorough about what the shop felt necessary to maximize proper repair to the vehicle, though it would cost more in the end. We were grateful to have been given time to pay for the repairs over several weeks. The shop did a great job and car is running very well. Thank you all for your friendly, fast service!

by - Verified Customer June 17, 2016

Had coil spring air bags installed & headlights aligned, as far as I can tell airbags were fine. They installed new headlights, but I would of had better illumination with a candle, high and low beam operated backwards. I don't normally like to drive at night, but had an Emergency and had to. I finally made it home at 11pm. I don't mind telling you what I thought about the service, on that long dark ride home.

by - Verified Customer June 16, 2016

I gave a 9 out of 10 based on a one time positive experience.

by - Verified Customer June 15, 2016

They did a new bus transmission. We appreciated the quick turnaround time. When we got the bus back to Estes Park, the transmission was leaking. Had to pay a driver to take it back to Loveland, and then had to pay again to pick it up to have leak fixed. Eddie was very pleasant to deal with. Bus seems to work properly now.

I had a charging problem with my camper that blew up a battery. My multimeter showed voltage was too high. I replaced voltage regulator twice and had alternator bench tested and it passed. I also had charging system tested at a part store the same day my battery blew up and it passed but my meter showed it was overcharging. I was referred to Stan's by 4 seasons RV. They spent 2 hours testing it extensively and it passed all their tests. I paid the 2 hour diagnosis to them and took it home. 2 hours is the minimum charge on electric diagnosis for RVs there. I still got high voltage readings with my multimeter but when I checked my meter on another vehicle that had a voltage gauge my meter was reading the same as the gauge in the vehicle. I notified Stan's of this and they agreed to take another look and not charge the 2 hour diagnosis fee again. This time they got the same results I was getting all along and they were able to find the problem and repair it for an additional $100.00. I would use them again because they were willing to take another look at it for me when I told them my concerns and they got it resolved for me in a reasonable time frame and cost. Any garage can miss something, but its how they work through the problem should one occur that separates a good shop from the rest.

Over all the service was good but when I had my dad call to pay he was told there was no record of my car being there. Then when I called to see what was going on and why he was told that the lady I talked to was very rude I had to be transferred to someone else and he was much more delightful and helpful. Also when he did make it down to finally pay his debit card was charged twice and they were not open the next day to get it fixed. So taking out double really put us in a bind for rent and bills.

by - Verified Customer April 26, 2016

Brought my RV in to have some electrical work done on the engine, they worked diligently to find the problem. They also did battery work up and oil change and were very reasonably priced for the work done. They were also very professional and the service was prompt. I will be going there again for sure!

by - Verified Customer April 22, 2016

Super friendly staff! Very quick service time!

I think they wasted my time, took my money left with the same problem in my truck that I came in with.

Very satisfactory. The staff is professional and efficient. Prices are clearly described ahead of repair, and work is excellent.

I went to Stan's for maintenance on my RV engine and generator. Stan's performed the maintenance and then asked if they could perform a diagnostic check on my rig and generator. I hesitated to approve the testing as I have had other facilities use the results to generate additional business. Stan's checked out my rig, reported there were no problems. In my opinion they are an honest business and I will take my unit back without any hesitation.

by July 02, 2015

I feel like I was over charged. They made it seem like I was a burden to their day. The service guys made it seem like foreign cars means they don't want to work on it at all.

They do a pretty good job. It is kind of pricey. There is some work that I think other shops could do a better job at.

I went in for a second opinion. Another tire/repair shop had stated that there were several (expensive) problems with my vehicle. Since I hadn't seen any symptoms of anything wrong, I took it to Stan's. After thoroughly checking over my vehicle, they found no problems whatsoever.

by - Verified Customer August 07, 2014

Stan's has always corrected difficult to find problems with my vehicles over the years. They also proved themselves to be honest. Lastly, they worked with me when I was in difficult financial times to pay of my repair bill.

by - Verified Customer April 03, 2014

I think they replaced things that were unneeded.
