Head lamp replaced. Completed in about an hour. I've referred my daughter and son-in-law to start using your service for their two cars.

by - Verified Customer October 15, 2017

I love Mountain Auto! They always take care of me, and I feel safe in their hands. It's nice to have a mechanic you can trust!

by - Verified Customer August 02, 2017

Great job all around. I'll be coming back for sure.

by - Verified Customer July 26, 2017

Mountain Auto is my go to mechanic hands down. There are times when I'd like an update throughout the day to understand if all is going well or something else came up.
With this visit I had to call to get an update, come to find out it had not been started yet past the time I had requested the vehicle to be ready. Luckily, it was not a fix that took a long amount of time, but a little frustrating it had been waiting all day when I had it dropped of by 8 am.

by - Verified Customer July 05, 2017

I took the vehicle in because I felt it needed a general look over and an oil change. Also, the check engine filter light was on. I wanted all fluids checked and replaced if necessary they only changed the oil. i had used this shop exclusively for this vehicle but no one there seemed to know the vehicle and I am not sure how experienced the mechanics were and it seemed as if no one worked there for more then 2 weeks.I really don't know if work was done or no, but it was a lot of $ and the one thing I took in there for was not corrected or I am not sure it was because the light was still on and I drove half way across town before I noticed it so I had to go back and I was not impressed with explanations.

Pretty good.

by - Verified Customer May 29, 2017

They took the time to fix the problem without trying to completely replace the motor (as another shop recommended).

Will and Matt were friendly, helpful and skillful in their diagnosis and repair of my Volkswagen Jetta. Matt even let me borrow his extra car while they worked on mine. They go above and beyond. Their rates are reasonable and I really trusted their knowledge. They made a stressful situation so much easier. Thank you Will and Matt!!

by - Verified Customer April 03, 2017

I feel confident about the work done at Mountain Auto Repair, appreciate their attention to detail, their fair pricing, and going out of their way to make sure I understand what the vehicle needs or doesn't need.

by - Verified Customer March 16, 2017

I highly recommend this establishment. I feel like they go above and beyond and are very honest.

by - Verified Customer February 27, 2017

Love doing business with you guys even when it hurts my pocket. Keep up the great work.

by - Verified Customer February 20, 2017

I once went to Pollard Jeep in Boulder and the estimates came out near double what Mountain Auto Repair estimated and Mountain Auto included more repair work. I've been back for several very different, extensive repairs and I've always felt really confident in my jeep after Mountain Auto fixed her up. Aside from great mechanical work, the guys there are very easy to talk to, (I don't speak car, but they translate for me) and maybe, just maybe you can also get them to share some of their favorite Colorado spots.

Some custom work was done in addition to standard maintenance such as oil change. Asked them to check a couple of underbody issues and they accurately quoted those and finished the work including the custom installation timely and very well.

by - Verified Customer May 08, 2016

Great! We trust these guys and their little dogs too!

by - Verified Customer May 04, 2016

I have been going to this shop for years. This time I only needed an oil change. I have always found them to be quick, trustworthy and reliable while also being fairly priced.

by - Verified Customer April 21, 2016

Good product & service at a good price.

by - Verified Customer April 11, 2016

All my experiences, including this one, have been good. They do great work at a great price, are really friendly, and make sure to get the job done when you need it done.

by - Verified Customer April 07, 2016

My last time in, they did a mechanical evaluation of a rather aged car. They gave it to me straight, a balanced assessment of the car's issues; really helped me with decision making around that car's future.

by - Verified Customer March 31, 2016

This is the only shop I take my Subaru to. They are the ultimate best! They never try to get me to do un-needed repairs. They always have my car ready at the time they give me. Super honest and hardworking guys. On top of that they are really nice guys and talk a normal language not just mechanic lingo.

by - Verified Customer March 22, 2016

I had noticed a fluid leak under my car so took it in for Mountain Auto to check out. They diagnosed a power steering pump problem and replaced it. The repair was done quickly, on time, and the price quoted was the price I paid. I am very happy

by - Verified Customer March 20, 2016

These two always provide quality honest work for solid reliable prices and I appreciate being able to take my car to folks I feel I can trust!

These guys are great and go above and beyond to take care of their customers.

by - Verified Customer November 11, 2015

The guys at this shop are super honest, a lack of which is unfortunately often a problem at auto shops, especially for single females. I've gotten a lot of work done on my Jeep and they've always done a great job at a good price.

by - Verified Customer November 10, 2015

Very good. I enjoy Matt and the crew.
