    By Jerry Haselgren

    To George, Terry and the staff at Colorado Engine, Please accept this belated note of thanks for your perseverance in analyzing and correcting the tappet problems on my '56 Chevrolet. A special thanks to Terry for his patience and genuine intent to correct the problem. The last analysis and correction seems to have been successful. I would certainly recommend Colorado Engine to me fellow collector car enthusiasts. Again, Thank you on behalf of my wife and myself.

    By Charles Peterson

    I went to Colorado Engine thinking that I needed a replacement engine for my 1999 Susuki Vitara. I was prepared for a $3,000.00 repair bill to replace my engine when the mechanics at Colorado Engine diagnosed my problem as the throw out bearing and a leaking rear main seal. They could have easily taken my money and sold me a $3,000.00 engine that I did not need. Thank you Colorado Engine, your honesty saved me $2,200.00.

        An Excellent Auto Repair Shop
    By Ronald and Carol S.

    Our son Preston was serving with the armed forces in Iraq and contacted Colorado Engine via their website to have extensive repairs done on his Mazda 6 so it would be completely fixed when he was deployed home. Preston was very impressed with the quality of workmanship he received, the total price and the unusual personal touches from the people he dealt with. My wife Carol and I were impressed also and brought them our 2000 Toyota 4 Runner for a replacement engine. Again, we received top quality and personal service at a very reasonable price. Its worth it for us to travel from Keenesburg to Arvada for auto repair. We think they're a great company and highly recommend them.

        Trustworthy service
    By makkriegbaum01

    I took my truck in for service on my A/C because it was making noise, I was thinking it was gonna be an expensive 1000 dollar repair but it turned out to just be a bolt loose. they tighten down the bolt called me up and I had my truck back in 2 and a half hours with no chharge. Most shops out there wouldn't of even checked that they would have just done the A/C job and charged me for it. Colorado engine is one great repair shop that I will take my truck back to any day, Because I know they will be honest with me.

        Appreciation and thanks
    By Roy

    I wish to express my appreciation and thanks for a very professional job in installing a remanufactured engine in my 1996, Chevrolet, Blazer. Having owned the vehicle since it was new I had decided to invest some money in “restoring” it is a daily driver. I researched several options and shops for installation of a rebuilt or remanufactured engine. I selected Colorado Engine because of your knowledge, a very competent appearing shop and competitive pricing. I was not disappointed in the selection. The vehicle now has 500 miles on the installation with absolutely no issues…. no fluid leaks, easy starting and good performance. The installation was very professional with apparent attention to detail. I also appreciate that a couple of additional problems, (motor mounts, hoses to the remote oil filter, suspension link) identified during the engine work were corrected at a very fair additional cost. I also appreciated that the accessory components and additional parts replaced were saved to show me their condition when I picked up the vehicle. I was also quite impressed with the knowledge and the skill of the technician who performed the majority of the work. Again, thank you and your organization for a very satisfying automotive maintenance experience.

        Colorado Engine is Trustworthy!
    By Susan Clark

    I love these guys. After being concerned when my old mechanics had trouble fixing my car and wanted another $1500 after I just spent $800 to fix with no results. Arrg. I then looked up Martino's list and found Colorado Engine. They listened and found and fixed issue for $200 including an oil change. Wow! Wish I looked them up first. If you want plush expensive service go to a fancy place or the dealer. If you want complete service and excellent mechanics at a realistic price go to COLORADO ENGINE!

        Saved me hundreds!!
    By Spencer

    I had an issue with my Jeep, and after a visit to a local shop, I was advised that my engine was completely seized and would need to be replaced. I decided a second opinion would be a good idea, and called George at Colorado Engine. He was extremely nice over the phone and recommeded I get my car in as soon as possible. It took Colorado Engine less than a day to tell me that my engine is fine, and that the fix would be less than $300 total - saving me almost $4,000 in engine replacement costs. I would highly recommend any engine concerns be reviewed by the experts at Colorado Engine before you make any decisions on repairs. You wont be disappointed. Thank you Colorado Engine

        Great shop!!!
    By Matt

        Stood behind their work...eventually.
    By R Florence

    Had to get my wife's 2006 Pacifica engine replaced. When we got the car back there was quite a big leak. Took it back 3 times and was told that the leak wasn't from anywhere that they worked. I took a bunch of picture, wrote a 3 page letter (with photos) to the owner (George) and he had them fix it. It's been 3 months and my garage door is as dry as a bone and the car runs like brand new. I didn't appreciate their initial response but the owner stood behind their work and made it right and that's all I expect from an honest business. I will take any future major engine work to them. But you can bet I'll be checking for leaks before driving out of their lot next time. I would have given them 5 stars otherwise. Good guys.

        Ford F150
    By Cheryl

    I have a Ford F150 with a 5.4 L engine with 110,00 miles on it. I have been shopping around for a sparkplug change. For everyone who owns a Ford with a big block engine, 4.6 to 5.4L engine, you know the problems with the spark plugs. A lot of repair shops will not touch them. Colorado engines soak...ed the plugs to loosen the carbon and got them out without any of the tips getting stuck. Most shops do not soak the plugs they just pull them and some get stuck causing big repair bills. They also changed my serpentine belt and did an oil change all for less than five other shops quoted me for the sparkplug change. I will come back for auto repair in the future and I will recommend you to my family and friends! Thanks guys! You saved me a lot of money! Thank You
