They were all very good.

by - Verified Customer January 08, 2018

they fixed my car as was promised and also helped me to attach the side view mirror that came off.

by - Verified Customer January 05, 2018

Outstanding service, and value every visit!
Trusted advisor for my auto service needs.
Look forward to my next visit, knowing that all service needs will be handled professionally.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2017

The crew there are always on point. I like how they explain what's going on with your vehicle, and explain how they're going to work on it. I don't know how pricing works in the auto industry, but I never feel overwhelmed with the bill.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2017

Very clean shop!

diagnosis for misfire. personally did repair, still misfiring, likely more than what was diagnosed. shop diagnostic likely correct, system may not have shown exact or complete problems. overall good experience for what was requested

by - Verified Customer December 13, 2017

Checkpoint does good work in a straight forward manner.

by - Verified Customer December 10, 2017

These guys are great.

by - Verified Customer December 07, 2017

Was a good experience, although, power steering had stopped at one point on me, it was back working, so it was difficult to find out why it stopped, but was informed of how it works and how much it would be to fix the power steering if it happens again.

by - Verified Customer December 04, 2017

Straightforward, clear explanation of what needed to be done and what could wait.

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2017

I found the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely use this shop again and have no problem recommending them.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2017

I was getting a routine oil check and they did a great job changing it, but I have a very small leak coming from somewhere that wasn't looked at too well and it's still leaking.

by - Verified Customer November 17, 2017

Dennis and the crew identified the problems with my car quickly and gave me a roadmap of repairs to take care of when i get the chance. no pressure and i'm happy with my repairs and their price

by - Verified Customer November 17, 2017

Everyone was friendly and professional. I brought my Prius in for an oil change, and it was done in a timely manner. My only concern is that it seemed obvious that your shop doesn't have much experience with working on a Prius. You did not quite believe me when I said that I could go 5K miles between oil changes, which I'm pretty sure is standard for the Prius, maybe for other hybrids as well. You have a good business, however, and I would come back.

by - Verified Customer November 13, 2017

Convenient location to me and good work. Will be back.

They are nice people very professional and helpfull. A shop that you can trust!

by - Verified Customer November 08, 2017

I asked the shop to look at my car because a lot of warning lights were going off and I was charged 130$! Just to look at it and tell me they couldn t really find anything specific that it might be the battery, and then wanted to charge another 360$ to replace that. I didn t realize you charged just to run a diagnostic. I would have went somewhere else that does that for free. Way too much just to look at the car

by - Verified Customer November 01, 2017

Wonderful experience here. they treated me so well and got the repairs done super fast! 10/10 would recommend and will return to in the future.

by - Verified Customer October 23, 2017

The staff was very nice.

by - Verified Customer October 20, 2017

General maintenance done by polite, respectful and nice guys! Great customer service done with a smile along with a few jokes!

by - Verified Customer October 19, 2017

Had oil changed on two cars. Checkpoint has always done a good job.

by - Verified Customer October 17, 2017

I was impressed at how the crew at Checkpoint went out of their way to prioritize my car and even though there was a lot of work to be done, they actually had finished working on my vehicle and I was able to pick it up the same evening. They even submitted my tire rebate for me!

by - Verified Customer October 13, 2017

Was good!

by - Verified Customer October 13, 2017

I went in for an oil change. The staff was very friendly, the cost was reasonable and the work was done well and quickly

by - Verified Customer September 29, 2017

Very easy to schedule my appointment. Happy with the service I received.

by - Verified Customer September 29, 2017

They were referred to me by a competitor who was farther away when I called. I'm not from the area and was looking for a repair facility close to where my son lived. When a competitor recommends a place, they have been around awhile. I wanted to drive to a facility to avoid a tow or haul. Will be back.

Thanks for fixing the defective alternator. I appreciate your professionalism.

Convenient, friendly and respectful. I'd recommend this place to all of my friends. Especially to my lady friends, because they would be made to feel empowered and never made to feel small and/or unimportant.

by - Verified Customer September 22, 2017

They did a great job I will return next time I need some work done on my car

by - Verified Customer September 21, 2017

Always feel like they are honest and listen to what I describe to them

Paul answered all of my questions

by - Verified Customer September 21, 2017

I have been taking my vehicle to Checkpoint for years and I love the personal greeting and attention that I get. They give a small town feeling that is lacking with other companies. Larry is the best!

by - Verified Customer September 19, 2017

As usual I received great service and everyone was friendly.

by - Verified Customer September 19, 2017

We will continue to bring all the cars into Check Point.

by - Verified Customer September 19, 2017

My care was due for its 90,000 check. Checkpoint reviewed the previous work on my car, then completed the needed updates. They called me with the costs prior to beginning the work, and had the car finished earlier than expected. I highly recommend this shop.

Very nice staff and work was done in a timely fashion.

I was thrilled to find out Dennis had availability for a Saturday same day oil change. He's friendly on the phone & in person. Bonus for Fixer Upper being on in the waiting area...

by - Verified Customer September 13, 2017

This was my first visit to your shop. I didn't have major work done. I was treated well and my vehicle is running good so I'll be back!

by - Verified Customer September 11, 2017

I didn't have an appointment but they got my car in right away and started working on it. Brought it in the next day to finish the work and it was completed as promised.

by - Verified Customer September 10, 2017

Terrible. I went in with one problem and left with an even bigger one.

We,re Sorry your car had a bigger problem going on than you had expected. Know that were here for you if you change your mind and want to go further with repairs on this or need another used car inspected. Checkpoint Service Team

by - Verified Customer September 07, 2017

The customer service is excellent

by - Verified Customer September 07, 2017

Excellent Experience!!!!!! Thanks!!

by - Verified Customer September 05, 2017

The car was towed to the shop. They looked at it in a timely manner. Explained what had to be done and what else should be done, and when it would be finished.

by - Verified Customer September 04, 2017

Friendly staff. A loaner car was available to me while my car was being fixed. This was a huge help, was able to run errands w/ my 2 year old. I will use this shop for future car repairs and maintenance.

by - Verified Customer August 31, 2017

My only grumble is that over the phone I understood that if the timing chain driven water pump needed replaced, that they could do it, but when I dropped car off was told they couldn't (I described issue & vehicle same both on phone and in person). Testing indicated pump was ok and didn't need replaced, so all good.

Reply from Checkpoint Automotive – by checkpointautomotive September 22, 2017

good, i have an oil seal leak though from my last visit and oil change that i need to get corrected

by - Verified Customer August 27, 2017

I was charged 2 $60 inspection fees for things that should have not taken that long to inspect. I already knew the emergency brake cable was broken, I just wanted to see it be reattached and I would just pay the repair fee. I didn't know it was going to be a $60 fee just to inspect it. The other inspection fee was because I thought I might have an oil leak. I didn't know I this was going to be another $60 fee. If I knew it was going to be $120 for these simple inspections I would have just purchased jack stands and looked under the car myself.

by - Verified Customer August 24, 2017

Knowledgable. Honest. Sent me a video of the problem to authorize the repair.

by - Verified Customer August 24, 2017

Everything was great

My wife's car needed a battery and they got me in last minute without an appointment. Turned it around in under an hour. Great service - Thanks Guys!

by - Verified Customer August 22, 2017

Checkpoint was willing to work with me to time rebates on materials. They identified necessary repairs without being pushy. I recommend their work.

by - Verified Customer August 21, 2017

This has been my trusted car repair place since we arrived in Denver in 2012. Never steered me wrong. Same for my most recent visit.

by - Verified Customer August 18, 2017

Great shop, really good people, competitively priced and I'm treated fairly. The wrong oil (it requires synthetic) was put in my car the last time but one of the guys recognized it and this time the correct oil was used. I also appreciate getting pictures of the maintenance items they check.

As always, the oil change was done promptly and available when I needed the car to be ready.

I have been a customer since the shop opened, because they always treat me great. They are professional whether it's an oil change, a question, or major over haul.

by - Verified Customer June 29, 2017

Paul was confident from the start of the conversation that he would be able to come up with a solution for replacing a part on our 2008 Saturn that was not available in the marketplace. He employed an 'out of the box ' approach to getting the car back on the road. We were very impressed with all of the team members that we spoke to at the ship. We will return for repairs and oil changes in the future. This is a local small business that we are proud to support.

Exceeded my expectations and less than I was originally quoted price...awesome.

by - Verified Customer June 07, 2017

Larry talked to me about other repairs that was a leak from fuel pump ? (water pump) that required replacement. Since the technician had the afternoon off,, I had to wait until the next day which was OK. Tires were rotated and radiator cap replaced. This ended up with a bill over $600. The sensor warning light came on again & remains on as we are in Breckenridge. I have tightened the gas cap but it hasn't changed. I am driving the car.

The first time I went in they ordered the wrong part and didn't even offer an incentive for my time. I had to go back in for the second time 2 weeks later for the same issue when they actually had the right part, the second time I went in they didn't even call me to let me know they had the part in I had to call them.
