I can't say more positive things about this place. Eric (the mechanic/owner) is a fantastic resource--honest, hardworking, delivers on time and on budget. I've dealt with many mechanics over the years before finding HTS--now I head straight here when I need anything car-related. A few things I really value:1. He will tell you what needs to be done immediately, what can wait a few months, and what things you'll need to think about 6+ months out.2. He'll tell you how you can knock a few dollars off and give you an honest recommendation--sometimes used parts save you money (and he'll source them for you and get them delivered), sometimes it's only a little more expensive to just buy new. He'll tell you his recommendation and then let you decide.3. I call and he'll get me in as soon as possible, usually the next day.4. After I drop my car off, he'll call/text (whatever works for me that day) and tell me what's happening and how much it's going to cost. Then I authorize the work and he makes it happen.5. Whenever I'm considering buying a car, I always take it to Eric and have him check it out first. He'll do a thorough inspection for a great price and help make sure that you're getting a good deal (or let you know if someone's done shoddy work that will only end up costing you money in the long run).Seriously, this place has diagnosed problems that other people gave me GIGANTIC quotes for because they really don't know what's wrong. HTS has saved me thousands of dollars and keeps my cars running smooth. I live in Lafayette/Boulder and it's worth the trip down to HTS.
We moved to Denver recently and needed to purchase a reliable car for our family. We did the perfunctory online search using three separate resources and found a few cars that fit the requirement. I called on them but did not gain much confidence from most of the sellers I spoke with over the phone. I then visited a few lots in south Denver and Englewood but became concerned by the fast talk, the lack of specific knowledge about the cars, and the reluctance to provide warranties, etc. After awhile, I just gave up on the process – then school started and my wife and I were challenged with scheduling for work, the kids, and other commitments so we were back to the search. I feel fortunate that the next car I looked at was on the MGM Auto sales lot. Following the test drive, Roger and his team encouraged me to have a third party mechanic go over the car, MGM performed a minor repair, and they were fair on price. Roger and his group were knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant to work with. We have the car and love it. It was actually the first enjoyable car buying experience I have ever had.
I purchased a used car from Midtown Motors about 2 years ago. Before I bought it, they fixed the AC without charging extra. (I can't remember the name of the guy who sold it to me, but he was very nice.) Last September, the AC stopped working, but I decided to not worry about it until summer. I took it to Firestone last week to get the AC fixed, and they fed me some BS. Instead, I swung by Midtown to have them take a look at it and confirm or deny what Firestone had said. Their "AC expert", Steven, looked at my AC. He showed me Firestone's incorrect information. He then charged my AC for me, and it's been working ever since. I have been so impressed with Midtown, as this was my first car buying experience, and these guys are great. I'm so thankful to them for saving me $800. I will absolutely recommend Midtown to anyone looking for a new used car. And extra special thank you to Steven for taking care of me, and for not taking advantage of me. I very much appreciate your help.
In my first meal at Star Kitchen, I was pleased to discover a menu full of many great choices and old favorites. The food was very good and so was the service on a busy Saturday night. I had planned on being a regular. However, I later found my bank account was charged a 26% tip, when I had left an 18% tip. I disputed the charge I did not sign for through my bank, and the bank – not the restaurant – refunded me the unauthorized tip. There was also a security issue: The restaurant allowed a man to distribute marketing flyers at its front door, and when I refused a flyer on the way into the restaurant, the man blocked me from getting to my car on the way out. He stood in front of my car door. I had to tell him several times to leave me alone to be able to drive away. This made me uncomfortable and was an unpleasant way to end my meal. I alerted the restaurant, but don’t know whether any action was taken to prevent this from happening to other customers.
i have been taking my car to these guys for about a year and a half, and in that time, Dave and his guys have been incredibly helpful and efficient in the repairing of my car. i drive a volkswagon jetta and like to hit pot holes.. they did the job for $600 less than the offer i received from another mechanic, re-diagnosed the car and found a couple more different problems, (still 600 dollars less) and they worked around MY schedule to make it happen, with follow ups. Also, In this time he opted not to sell me tires because i could get them cheaper elsewhere, has lifted my car up a FEW times and not charged me a cent, had a pair of bolts go missing from some work i had done on my sway bar from them, HE bit the cost of the bolts and installed them for free.. WHAT! Little white kid walking into a mechanic shop with a busted car, think about it.. Awesome customer service, prices, and conversation. TAKE YOUR CAR TO THESE GUYS
