Andy&Crew can fix just about anything! And won't tell the other half what you REALLY did. Stresses preventive maintenance,answers dumb customer questions w/o flinching,replaces car mfg parts w/same new parts, upfront w/limitations&recommendations, explains options in easy words to base your decision upon & owns 2 big, beautiful dogs. He even hung a pic of our van@230,000m on wall of testimonials. In response to timely manner:he's a word-of-mouth owner/operated business,but he honestly tells what day to expect return of vehicle. He turns away business. However, if emergency(2 days before a vacation, he got us going on time), he will accomodate. Overall, they're talented mechanics who uphold high standards & help customers stay driving on road w/a safely operating vehicle.

Thank God Andy and Crew started doing domestic cars. Now I can walk away from those jerk dealers and get some real honest service at reasonable prices.

I had taken my car there for a free oil change when I moved to Broomfield, and had asked Andy to check it over and tell me what he thought it needed. After doing a free diagnostic on the car, he told me the only thing he could find wrong was that it would need a new serpentine belt within a few months (which I already knew). I thought that said a lot for his honesty, because a lot of garages try to sell single women everything but the sink. When my car broke down on the highway at night a few months later, the tow truck driver recommended Andy's shop as a good place to go. He towed it there, and by the time I called the next morning to explain what had happened, Andy already had it in looking it over. I was imagining the worst, and expecting a big repair bill, but it turned out to be a bad battery cable, which he replaced for a very reasonable charge. It's hard for a single woman to find a garage that is trustworthy - I've got horror stories galore on places that have tried to rip me off. I feel fortunate to have found Andy.

Couldn't ask for a better mechanic. Andy is very good about letting you know that what you requested isn't needed. Repeat customers get discount cards. They come in handy. Highly recommend! Cozy Corner towing (their tow'er of choice), on the other hand, work out your own deal for towing. That guy has an attitude problem.

As a woman, I feel very safe in taking my car to Andy. He has always treated me with respect and never laughed (at least to my face) at my discription of a problem. Any guy who can listen to my noises and tell what is wrong with my car, is number one in my book. At one point we had my jeep, my husbands chevy pick up, my sons pickup and my daughters car in for repairs. I think I have him almost convinced that I need a frequent user or group discount card.

Replaced the O2 sensors in my car, but tested and made sure that they were the problem instead of just trusting the scan tool and throwing parts at what 'might' be the problem. Appreciated their thoroughness. I will go back when the time comes that something else needs to be worked on in my car.
