Very happy with my experience, have recommended them to neighbors & will go back. On 1st visit they missed a banging/clunking in the R front quarter, but so have the last several mechanics I've test driven...& run from, clutching my battered wallet. At least they didn't cop an attitude. Would have gotten mega points if they had offered to try, try again. Second visit they replaced a timing belt, & very happy with that repair. Only skunky part was the part with the skunk. Apparently Pepe spent some time under the hood, too. It's been a few weeks, but should be parking indoors by first snow!

I've taken my car to this garage twice and couldn't be happier with the service. The guys are nice, honest, and competent. Thanks!

Believe these comments! Note how far they go back in time and how consistent they are. I found Dave thru CarTalk website since I was new in town. I tried them since they were close to work. Here is a true Girl Garage, as I feel they will find and fix the problem and charge accordingly--which is sometimes not at all. Dave & the crew at 8th St. Conoco will be my first line of defense with my car and the folks I will bring my car to for repairs, because they build relationships and treat customers well.

Dave is a steady, straight-up guy who gives an honest estimate, explains car mechanics and repair well, and does quality work in a timely way. I like how his shop feels when i go to drop off or pick up my car. Dave and his shop mechanics are buena gente.

I had just moved to Denver from another state and was looking for an honest mechanic. The first time I took my car in to see Dave and the guys, I asked them to just look it over and let me know if there was anything wrong with it. It's older and has high mileage, but it's always been well cared for. They inspected it and took it around the neighborhood. Dave came back and said it's a great car and there's nothing wrong, but he did have to top off the wiper fluid. Didn't charge me for the inspection or wiper fluid and I've been going back for three years. They've been consistently honest and competent all along.

Dave and his crew are super honest and helpful. I always go here first. If they can't fix it, they refer me to someone who can. Oftentimes, they'll look it over at no charge. Sometimes I do wish they'd do a deeper search, but they're not miracle workers, and I need to get better at expressing the symptoms. Again, they do look-sees for free, so can't complain. Labor costs are very reasonable. They don't have the fancy computer system checks, so you do have to go to the dealer for that. A great, basic neighborhood garage. Love them!

My law office is next door, so not only are they very convenient but they work on my cars and my employees cars and they always offer helpful advice and good service. Dave McMahon runs the place, with Frank's and others' help, and they are extremely knowledgable. I currently have two older Toyotas and an older Honda, but they have worked on my Subaru, Nissan, and my employees' Mitsubishis, Fords, and other cars. They aren't the best for everything, as I have another mechanic who is inexpensive on timing belts, and I used another mechanic to put in a used air conditioning compressor because they didn't want to install used parts. But for oil changes and rattles and brake jobs and struts and manifold gaskets and lots of other basic stuff they can't be beat -- and I just show up in the morning saying "hey, you got time to do oil change for my Camry today" and most of the time they can do it promptly. They have a good deal if you are buying a used car. For something like $50, and I think the price is actually less, they'll check out a used car. I was recently in the market for an inexpensive older sedan, and I brought them a Honda Accord which had a transmission glitch that they found, so I didn't want to buy it. When I found the Toyota Camry that I ultimately purchased, I had my credit card out to pay the $50 again and Dave said something like "that price is for up to three cars, so long as you bring them in within a few days or weeks," so they didn't charge me more! They have done that for about six cars I've considered buying in past few years. I had a rattle in a leased Nissan Rogue, and I was about to sublease it so I wanted to get the rattle fixed. Dave said, "let's go for a ride" immediately, and we went around the block. As we rode he warned me that rattles are tough to fix because they're "like needles in a haystack." But then he heard the rattle, took the keys when we got back to the shop and put it up on the rack, and when I came to pick it up at the end of my workday he said "no charge" and it was a muffler bracket that needed tightening. Dave and Frank treat my women employees and my daughters with a great degree of respect and a gentlemanly service approach. Let me explain. When I get my work done I'm comfortable around the garage, and I know where to keep out of their way and I like cars so I want to see the used parts and get the technical explanation of what they did and how to better maintain my car -- and they're as knowledgeable as our CarTalk guys! But women aren't so comfortable around cars and in my experience don't care about hearing the technical explanation. So when my women office manager gets work done, Frank and Dave will literally walk over to the office to give these ladies their bill and keys back -- there's never a markup for these women not knowing or caring much about their cars, service is often free if it's a simple thing, and women are treated with extra respect, like the ladies that they are. And I've checked up on them with the charges and I truly appreciate having trustworthy mechanics to keep my employees' cars running so they can get to work! My daughters who don't work in my office get the same extra-special treatment and respect. One evening one of my paralegals had locked her keys in her car before her night class and was panicked; I walked over and asked Frank if he could do a favor for my paralegal and he took the time to help her with a Slim Jim or coat hanger or whatever and got her into her car in like two minutes flat, and then he didn't charge her for saving her and for getting her to class on time. I'm only worried that they'll have to raise prices because of more complex cars, or that they'll stop with such personalized service in a few years. But for now I trust all my cars to them, my daughters' cars, and my employees cars.

Dave is the owner/primary mechanic. He seems very honest and has told me a couple times that I didn't need work other mechanics said I should do.
