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.

All Pro Auto Repair
I've worked with many repair shops over the years. I've had not only great customer care but also excellent service for my two vehicles, a Ford Explorer and Hyundai Sonata.The owner of the shop is Dave. He's a straight-shooter and upstanding man. I trust what he tells me and he goes the extra mile for my vehicles (and for his customers.)Dave and his team have been great with my Ford Explorer. I brought it in initially just for an oil change and all around checkup. We talked the 120k maintenance and he let me know just what I should do now and what I can wait on. I shopped around for prices and have had all the work done by All Pro Auto (this was 6 week ago.)I had an issue with the harmonic balancer on my Hyundai Sonata. I brought it in overnight and after we discussed it the following morning, I was driving again later that day. You want to work with All Pro Auto Repair. The prices are reasonable and the talent sublime. He's been in business here in Denver for a long time, too.I wrote that review several weeks ago. I brought my Explorer back in for a turn-signal problem. Once again, they absolutely nailed it. I don't shop around anymore. I just trust All Pro Auto.

Barbee's Freeway Ford
Dustin Gonzales made the difference! I spotted my purchase on usedcars.com and contacted the dealership. Dustin responded immediately. At my appointment the next day, Dustin was able to address the concerns I expressed concerning purchasing the vehicle. He met every request I had, and ultimately delivered an already great vehicle in "superior" condition. Not everyone is attentive to a prospective customer's requests and is pleasant the whole while.As a woman shopping for a vehicle alone, Dustin was someone I could trust. He wasn't full of hype and promise. He didn't pressure me and ultimately he delivered an excellent purchase for me - and I wasn't there all evening. The finance office was also efficient, and honest. There were no surprises or disappointments as I've experienced elsewhere. Thanks also to the detail team who went the extra mile as well. It appeared to be a team effort and I left a very happy and satisfied customer.

Our experience with Automotive Transmission Engineering was very positive. We had our Honda in two different shops to get opinions as to why we have been experiencing issues with our transmission. Both shops prior, mentioning no names was telling us that a rebuild was the only option. One of our friends recommended this shop and said let them look at it. That was the best thing I did, this shop is very busy and now I know why. They didn't charge me anything to check it. They asked for a day or two to look it over as they had a tight schedule. Later the same day they called me and said it only needed some minor work and that the transmission could be repaired without rebuilding it. We wanted to wait for a while to see if the repair was really fixed, which it is. I have never done a review before but this shop deserves more then 5 stars. Thanks Don and to your crew for all the hard work and earning our trustWayne and family

All Pro Auto Repair
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

These guys are amazing Don,Bill, & Jess I can't thank them enough they did a transmission rebuild on my 2011 Ford fusion & The same day I got my car back one of the sensors in the transmission went out which was not there fault cause it was not a part they were suppose to replace when they did the rebuild this sensor caused my transmission to overheat & my car broke down on me I got it back to there shop that night & they got to work on it immediately trying to diagnose the issue they took my entire transmission back apart & ended up replacing 3 parts in it free of charge parts & labor it took them a week to get my car running again but I haven't had any problems since transmission is shifting just as good as it was when I got the car new & Don & Bill even worked with me on a payment plan I would highly recommend these guys to anyone who needs work on there transmission they are truly the best at what they do

What a pleasure to find ATEC.I had transmission work that was done incorrectly and wasn't getting fixed after massive down time. After speaking to Don and giving the background to the problem he managed to not only correct the problem but get my truck back finally working like it was supposed to. I had been out of a business truck for too long and was given Don's number to his company from a shop owner here in Denver. Our company is so glad that we found ATEC and have started sending vehicles to ATEC Our maintenance shop has also started to use ATEC's engine shop after finding out they do more then transmissions. This is one of my first reviews i have ever done. After reading about them and now working with the shop and Don our company will be continuing our business and can stop looking for a great shop. I found it, thanks so much for the hard work and great service.Robert

Double Check Towing
I called Double Check the other day because my coolant hose exploded and I needed a tow downtown. The owner, Dave, said he would be out in 30-40 minutes and made it there on time. Most towing companies quote 60 minutes plus, so that was a pleasant surprise.Dave quickly loaded up my car and let me ride down to the auto shop with him. He let me go inside and start my order while he unloaded my car, and was helpful throughout. Once we were settled up, he was thoughtful enough to mention that I could turn in my receipt to my insurance company for reimbursement. I was so distracted by the frustration of car trouble that I would have completely spaced it.Overall, Dave is great at what he does and very thoughtful. Calling Double Check Towing made an otherwise frustrating situation a little more bearable. Stop reading this and make the call!

Chuck's Discount Muffler & Automotive
Chuck is perhaps the best mechanic in the whole universe. Not only are they fair and tell you exactly what needs to be done, but he goes more than the extra mile. I had a break in recently, and they replaced the steering column. That worked great. I locked all of my doors, and realized that he did not give me back my door key (totally understandable over site, one I did not think of at all). I called his shop at 8pm, he was still there. He delivered my keys to me. Had me try them in the door, they did not work (thieves must have broken the tumblers in the door too). So, he then went back to his shop and got a kit to get me into my car. He is a fantastic human being and a very interesting one too. I would recommend him very very highly. His prices are fair, but there is NOTHING discount about him nor his staff.

Transmission work is painful. I had it done on two other cars at other businesses and was not totally happy with the cost or the service, not to mention that the work turned out to be quite inadequate. So, this time, I went to several other transmission shops trying to size up the given business and found a gem with owner Don Ramer and Automotive Transmission Engineering Corp. Don really wants people to understand where the problems are with their transmissions. He will take whatever time one needs to understand the problems and to otherwise build trust. In general, the people working at this shop take pride in what they are doing and the attention shows. Prices are quite competitive and I doubt that there is transmission shop in the metro area that can offer better value, service, or professionalism.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
