Perry's brain SEES what is happening inside the automobile and can visualize the potential causes simply by listening and driving the car. He then proceeds to eliminate the possible causes, in order of least expensive to most. He is an amazing asset to haglin automotive.

I've been searching for a mechanic in Boulder for six months. I haven't been able to find one whose office, shop and personnel were clean, prices were good, and whose general opinion I felt I could trust until Haglin. Not only did they look at the problems I had, but they ran a full diagnostic of my vehicle to let me know where it stood (and it didn't cost me the usual arm & leg you expect nowadays from mechanics). It's not often that you hear from a mechanic "You know, there's no need to do that to your car right now. You've still got so-and-so miles left before you need to do that." To me that's impressive!

Haglin fixed a variety of oil and transmission leaks I had on a GMC truck for about $700. The GMC dealership had quoted me a price closer to $3000

I have an older car that I will be using for another year or so and just needed a repair to keep it running. They did that repair in an economical manner but really checked out the car. They pointed out some bad suspension parts that could get me killed. Of course I told them to fix it. I appreciate the through service. Bill Kalafus

Haglin Automotive is a great place to relax while they work on your car. They have a close trail along the creek to walk your dog, a comfortable lounge and they always have a great attitude.

I am a young woman that started first using Haglin for small fixes and updates, like oil changes, etc. It seemed a little expensive, but they seemed nice so I didn't think anything about it. The only strange thing that happened in those small repairs is that I once got a statement back requesting to "fix" the button that rolls my window up (they said it moved too slowly) for $500. I told them that wasn't necessary, and there was no other problem. BUT Problems really started when I started having bigger issues with my car. The first time, I took my car in twice reporting issues with the steering and a sound that didn't seem right. Twice, they told me they'd fixed the problem or they could not duplicate the sound. The second time I didn't make it out of the parking lot before I turned around and told them it wasn't right. They had a mechanic take a ride with me, and sure enough, we didn't make it out of the parking lot before he was really concerned. Finally they start working on the problem, and when I get it back the third time, I take it home, and the next day realize it's still not fixed. Against my better judgement I took it back (and that's when it really started getting weird), and they finally seemed to have a fix for the problem but it seemed incredibly expensive, so I told them I was going to price around before they fixed it. I hung up the phone, and about five minutes later I got a call back, saying they had mistyped the price and that it would be $500 cheaper than they'd originally offered. I thought it was strange, but let it stand as an isolated incident. I went ahead with the repair after this. Four months later, I took my car in for general repairs and upkeep before I took off on a cross country road trip. They didn't get to my car for three days, and then reported back with a list of really strange repairs that just didn't sound right. When they told me the price, I was once again taken aback by the price and again told them I'd price check around first. Exactly like the time before, they called back about five minutes later, said they'd mistyped the price, and that it would be $300 cheaper than their original price. This time I was really displeased with this response. If they had really mistyped the price once, then okay, I can forgive that, even understand it, but twice? And the difference of the two put me $800 different than the original prices? I don't think so. I don't have money like that to throw around. So, I immediately decided to take my business elsewhere. I took it in to the dealership, and they didn't report any of the strange problems that Haglin had (even after I pressed them and had them check several things), and fixed more problems for $400 cheaper than the final price I had been offered at Haglin. My car has worked perfectly since, and it's been four months. I want to believe that this place wasn't trying to take advantage of me because I seemed like a young woman without a lot of knowledge about my car, and I want to believe they wouldn't try to con people who weren't checking them out of their money, but that's really not the experience I came away with. I would not recommend this place to anyone and would advise everyone to price check somewhere else before you went ahead with the rates they suggest.
