Back in the day, auto diagnostics were quite different. Tracking down the problem with your vehicle wasn’t quite as easy and efficient as it is (or, should be) today. Your mechanic was compelled to root around within the guts of the vehicle, testing different systems until they were able to narrow down and ultimately isolate the problem. A good mechanic could certainly solve an issue, but it was almost guaranteed to take time.

Some automotive service stations still prefer to go old school. At The Shop Automotive in Boulder, we prefer to utilize the best of both worlds. Instead of wasting valuable time or “guesstimating,” we’ve harnessed cutting-edge computer diagnostic technology, allowing us to rapidly identify the issue with your vehicle, and implement a fix — quickly and efficiently.

But our people aren’t completely dependent upon tech. In fact, every technician at The Shop is highly trained and extensively skilled. Our staff includes ASE-certified, factory-trained technicians with certifications from General Motors, Volkswagen AG, Bosch. More than 40 years of combined experience means that we’ve encountered virtually any issue that can occur with an automobile. Plus, while we specialize in servicing German and Japanese makes and models, we are fully equipped to perform our expertise auto diagnostics on any car, foreign or domestic.
