CU-Boulder Auto Repair: Are you a CU Student? Parent?

Whether you’re a local or out-of-state CU student, finding a trustworthy auto repair shop can be difficult. You can bring your vehicle to the first shop you find and hope for the best, but taking the time to research local automotive repair shops will help you find a reliable mechanic you can trust. Here are some tips:

Ask for Recommendations

One of the best ways to find a reputable repair shop is to ask your friends and family for recommendations. Professors and faculty can also point you in the direction of reliable mechanics. Getting recommendations from people you trust will help you find a professional auto repair center that will meet your standards.

Look for Reviews

Have an auto shop in mind? Check out their reviews online. Reputable mechanics will have excellent customer reviews on major review sites and forums. Take the time to research the shop’s reputation and find out what other people are saying about their service, price, and professionalism. Don’t just rely on the rating itself. Take a close look at what each review says. If someone was unhappy with their service, what was the issue?

Ask About Discounts

Some shops (like us) offer CU student auto repair discounts. Shops that offer discounts will help you save money on your repair, which is something every student can benefit from. Call the shop or visit their website to find out what kind of discounts or special promotions they offer to students.

Ask About Expertise

Auto repair shops can typically work with most car makes and models. Depending on the repair, you may want to find a local shop that specializes in your vehicle. Technicians who are experienced with your make and model vehicle will know how to perform sensitive or complex repairs or diagnose problems that other mechanics might overlook.

Finding a reliable auto repair shop doesn’t have to be complicated. Ask for recommendations, and check the shop’s reputation online. When you have a few shops in mind, ask about discounts and find out which vehicles these shops specialize in. The right auto repair shop will have you up and running as quickly as possible, so you can continue your normal routine as a CU student.
