John at The Shop does great work, I would highly recommend their shop for any repairs!

Short review: Just – YES – These guys are legit. Longer Review: John and Jason are running a tight, clean, and knowledgeable operation at The Shop Automotive. It was a huge relief to work with a shop that is competent, generous and honest. My experience there was very positive. The ’96 Toyota T100 (the one I bought from my brother-in-law) was making all sorts of noises. I asked a friend where I should go. “Just go to The Shop – That’s where all of our employees go.” Co-owner John started by putting my T100 on the lift and walking me through everything he saw. Afterward, his business partner Jason presented me with a daunting list of issues. My finances weren’t great at the time, so they helped me pick what needed to be done immediately and what could wait. I live out of my T100 doing freelance work, so the investment was well worth it to me. My repairs are guaranteed for 3 years or 36k miles. I had initially gone to a mechanic who did both of my rear wheel bearings when they simultaneously failed. He was a really nice guy, but he wasn’t competent. In this case, being thrifty cost me more in the long run. His repairs were inspected at The Shop, where we discovered he’d used drywall construction caulk to seal the wheels to the axles and had taken a grinder to one of my axles to remove the old bearings; my tire could have shot off or my differential fluid could have bled out and destroyed my rear end. Lesson learned! As a business, I admire that John and Jason employ staffers who are equally friendly and relaxed-professionals (or, professionally relaxed?). A quick shout-out to their receptionist Adam who helped me organize my appointment and arrange refurbished parts and parts under warranty to keep my costs low. Their apprentice grease monkey, Fletcher, was also awesome and gave me the low down on good Mexican food in Boulder. I was so grateful for the experience that I wanted to share it. I’ll say to anyone what my friend said to me – Just go to The Shop.

Really helpful guys, gave me a great breakdown of all the work that was needed and I fixed all of it and they were pretty on the nail.

While we were in Boulder picking up a U-Haul, our car had a wiring issue causing our trailer lights not to work. The guys at The Shop were able to check out our problem during an inconvenient time, a Friday afternoon around 4pm. The Shop is clean, welcoming, and the crew is super friendly. They deserve five stars! John went out of his way and stayed a few minutes late in order to get the job done so that we could get back over to U-Haul before they closed. Thank you for the great service guys! I will definitely go back to The Shop if I need work on my car in Boulder.

Jason and his staff are honest, prompt and thorough whenever i need service for my 2010 Forester. Prices are reasonable and i never worry that work will be done that isn't needed. The staff always tries to work within time constraints which is not usually done elsewhere. In several recent cases, the staff basically worked in/on an issue i had despite having a full line up of service, allowing me to use my car when i needed it most. You don't find this kind of service very often. I highly recommend his shop!

I'm a rather jaded guy in general but I can't speak highly enough about this garage. Highly knowledgeable, got us in last min on a Saturday, greater detailed and patience than I've seen yet in a shop, steller custumer service, they are clearly going the extra mile as a small business across the board. I highly recommend giving them. (Directions) After you turn off the main road go right and then straight they are in the middle of the group of warehouses behind the parked cars and across from the outdoor equipment shop

I can't speak highly enough of The Shop and Jason! I had never been to a mechanic before and was worried of being taken advantage of. Jason took a real interest in my car problems, addressed all of my concerns, and explained the problems to me in a way that I could fully understand. He even did a general maintenance check and gave me a list that prioritized the issues so I could focus on the bigger problems without breaking the bank. I will definitely be coming back!! Thanks guys!

These guys are the best in town and probably the best mechanic I've ever come across. We have an '05 Land Rover LR3 that has had intermittent suspension and electrical fault issues for the past 6 months. We brought it to another shop in town (Arapahoe Import Service — don't go there) and they charged us $1200 for the issue to come back two weeks later. John did a complete inspection and a full suspension conversion from air to spring and it's back to new. He's be awesome to work with, explains everything so you understand what's going on and best of all, he's honest. Hopefully won't have to see them soon, but John and The Shop are my go-to shop I can count on. Recommend 100%

These guys are great! Everyone there is super friendly and knowledgeable, and after my experience The Shop is the only place I’d recommend. My ancient Ford Focus had been without heat in the cabin for about 6 mostly-freezing months, and instead would blow cool-to-lukewarm air. Google said it probably needed a new thermostat. I wasted my time taking my car to two other places in town, one of which told me the thermostat was fine and the other said that they couldn’t find any issues. Took my car to The Shop a few weeks ago and Jason was able to quickly diagnose the problem. Guess what? Needed a new thermostat. Now the heat works perfectly, problem solved. Wish I had just taken my car here in the first place! Jason also recommended that two of the engine mounts be replaced, but it turned out that only one needed replacing. I really appreciated the honesty, since there's no way I would have known the difference, and they could have easily made a few more bucks by replacing both. And now my car doesn’t vibrate like it’s about to explode, yay! I’ll definitely be coming back.
