I have had several excellent experiences with Alternative Autoworx, most recently when I could not get my key out of my subaru impreza’s ignition. I had to leave my car in the parking lot with a key in the ignition, locking it from the outside using another key and dropping the key in the drop box. The whole situation felt stressful, as it was a Sunday after hours, and I was uncertain about whether my car would be safe overnight with a key so visible from the window. An employee observed this situation and took the initiative to move the car into the garage so it was secure all night. Even though I did not have an appointment, by 9:00am the next day, the issue was diagnosed, a plan to fix it was in place, an email with a work order and a phone call detailing the issue occurred, and I was able to pick up by that afternoon, less than 24 hours after dropping off. It was incredible service, and I’m so glad to have a mechanic I trust so much.read more

Awesome, honest people. I went in for an oil change and they found a big issue where the transmission mounts to the engine. Instead of just quoting me a price and scheduling the repair, they advised me to reach out to Subaru to see if there is anything that they could do for me. I found out that there was an extended warranty on the transmission and it was fully covered. Thank you for your honesty and advise, I will definitely continue to use you in the future!read more

Top of the line service. There’s a reason this company has 4.9 out of 5 stars. Probably a 4.9999.After I tried doing my own “simple” oil change on my subaru, I accidentally drained the transmission fluid instead of the oil. Common mistake as I’ve been told but not a simple fix. Realizing what I did I went about refilling my transmission fluid. When I refilled it, I tightened the fill bolt so much a piece of the transmission bolt threads broke off. Thinking it was game over and calling all other local repair shops with my story, everyone had said, my transmission probably wouldn’t be salvageable. AJ told me to bring it in and they’d check it out. I told them I felt threads deeper then the bolts length when I was attempting to fix what I had already messed up.After calling around on quotes to fix my transmission and being told by everyone, I’d have to buy a new transmission, I called the boys at Alternative Autoworx back and they had remembered me from calling them a few days prior. They had a tech available and told me to bring my car right in. No appointment needed. They took care of my bolt issue in a couple hours and saved me multiple thousands of dollars. (3-9,000 was what I was being told) These guys fixed my problem for under 500 dollars.Moral of the story is, you get further with honey then with vinegar. They looked out for me to save me a buck, instead of make a buck off me if the could. I don’t feel like that’s a common practice with businesses anymore. I’ll be back for EVERY issue I have so I don’t do something stupid again.read more

Alternative Autoworx is a pleasure to work with. Their staff always takes the time to thoroughly explain issues you may be facing with your automobile. I’ve personally witnessed their staff go out of their way to make sure their customers are taken care of, including sending away business to a cheaper competitor. Not many businesses would do that. They have fantastic customer service and are true advocates of their clients.read more

TL;DR This is now the place I trust for all my non-standard repairs.Brought in my 2013 Prius C for a wheel that had been shoved back into the wheel well after sliding into a curb at speed.Jesse walked me through everything, answered all my questions, and all my repeat questions. There was uncertainty about additional post-alignment repairs being necessary once the first set of repairs were done. We went through some scenarios and whether to go the route of totaling, vs paying for the repairs and hoping the alignment didn’t show hidden necessary repairs.I’m very not a car person. I hopped on a multiway call with Jesse and my two family members who are car people, and Jesse explained everything great.I decided to risk it and hope there weren’t post-alignment repairs. Parts were expected to take a while to ship. They gave me a 2001 Subaru Outback with 190k miles on it as a loaner for free. Used it for my daily 25min commute for two weeks without issue.Everything went great! Alignment came back better than expected. Been driving it for a week now without any issues.read more

My son’s Subaru has been being worked on by my brother and i for weeks now and we have been fighting it the whole way. Well we have tried to fix everything and there was one noise we couldn’t fix. We called up Alternative Autoworx and asked if they could take a look at it. Even during this busy Christmas time they took our car in to diagnose it only because they were very busy with all their work and would have to fix any problems after the first of the year. They still took it in and not only diagnosed it they did the needed repairs and aligned it for us within 3 hours they were done. I would recommend them to any Subaru owner hands down.Thanks A.J and the people at Alternative AutoworxJamesread more

So glad I found Alternative Autoworx! They were able to look at my Xterra the same day I discovered an oil leak. They gave me a clear scope of work, kept me posted along the way of the progress and provided a loaner car for me to drive while they were working on my car! My car has been running great since they fixed it and I am hoping they resolved the ongoing issue I was having! I plan to continue to bring my car back to them for it’s routine maintenance and servicing. Their staff is professional, friendly, knowledgeable and I couldn’t be happier with the service I was provided. Highly recommend them!read more

Had Autoworx do an oil change. Next day had oil on garage floor because oil filter had come loose after driving. Autoworx had my car towed to shop and they fixed the issue. They also sent out workers to clean my garage floor. Mistakes happen and it was good to see Autoworx take responsibility and make matters right. Have used them before and been satisfied.read more

First off, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AUTO SHOP! They will definitely be my go to auto shop anytime I’m in Colorado. As a woman, there is a natural apprehension going to an unfamiliar auto shop because, let’s be real, some auto shops treat women like they don’t know any better and take advantage of them. Jessie and Greyson has been absolutely wonderful from start to finish. These guys were not only professional, kind, considerate, and honest, they were fun, easy going, great to talk to, chill, detailed, on top of everything, organized, and made me feel like family (like a family member they liked having around LOL). They made me feel safe and comfortable to communicate any of my car concerns, so much so that I just had any of my other car concerned fixed at their shop.My car problem:Anytime I was driving my car, my low beam headlights would switch back and forth from low beam to high beam, which can be distracting and potentially dangerous on the road for other drivers. Jessie was very professional and quick to diagnose my car problem. He made it easy for me to make an informed decision about what options I had with fixing my car. I was presented with the option to either get a new switch for the headlights or get a used one that may be just as good as a new one, but I would save about $50 and time because the used parts would be readily available. I was only in Colorado for a couple of days, Jessie and Greyson worked with me to get my car fixed faster than I expected, saved me time, and saved me hundreds of dollars. I have been quoted 3 – 4x the amount from other locations compared to what this auto shop actually charged me.I would definitely trust these guys with my car and 100% agree why they have 5 stars top ratings on google maps. I will definitely be going to them next time I have car issues or need a check up for my car. This auto shop was absolutely worth 40 min drive + for me to get my car seen and fixed by them! I had such a positive, quality experience with these guys! Highly recommend!!!read more

Autoworx is the best. I had a very positive and informational experience bringing my Toyota Highlander Hybrid in for them to look at. As a young woman, when I have brought vehicles to other mechanics/auto repair stores, I haven’t always been given information about my vehicle in a way that has been helpful. Jesse and Bobby were respectful, kind, and truly helpful in how they communicated all of the information (multiple important issues) going on with my vehicle. They are personable, very knowledgable, and impartial when giving advice/information about what I should do moving forward with my Toyota. I plan to return there with any of my car needs, and recommend them very highly to everyone else looking for good vehicle support!read more

These guys don’t just specialize in in Subaru, they specialize in LOVE. It took me 5 years to take my Forester back to this shop, because I do a lot of my own work. I went in to get diagnostics on my car after killing in up in the mountains. I got a lot of bad news, but I had the honest truth when I left. I had the car towed in, and drove it home with piece of mind. My bad news was east coast weather made my repairs on the brink of imposable. But they told me. I love these guys!

The brush guard on my car came undone on a Tuesday of Thanksgiving week. Alternative was busy with other customers, especially since it was a short holiday week. Because the repair to my car was minor, and didn’t require a lot of time to fix, I was able to get my brush guard reattached the same day. The folks could have told me to wait a day or so due to how busy it was, but worked me in and were professional and courteous about it.

I went to Alternative Autoworx because the Subuaru dealer in Boulder told me that I needed new front struts for $1100. So I called AA to get a second opinion – not only did they come in WAY lower, but after they took a look at my car, they assured that I actually DIDN’T need new struts on my Subaru!

These guys helped me find a used motor for my 2011 Subaru Impreza after the old one failed. It is now running better than when I first purchased it a year ago and the repairs were all within my budget! After shopping around I found they had the best prices and best reviews. They were super patient and helpful during a very stressful situation. I will definitely be bringing my car back here!read more

Until I found Alternative Autoworx a number of years ago, I never had an auto place I trusted. They’re great – trustworthy, reliable, excellent service, good quality, and reasonably priced. I take two cars there and never have had any concerns.read more

The crew at Alternative Autoworx have been taking great care of my Subaru Legacy maintenance and repair needs for years. We were on our way to the mountains for a Thanksgiving holiday years ago (literally end of day on Wednesday) and one of my tires was leaking and need air multiple times that week. Apparently, I hit something and somehow the wheel was bent and lost a strong seal. The Sub dealership looked – said it was not repairable, it would take days to get a pricey new wheel in with the holiday. I randomly called Subaru places with great reviews and Joel (owner) told me to bring it in for them to look. They fixed it in minutes (never had another issue with the wheel), didn’t charge me anything and sent us off to enjoy our family time. This is one of several stories I personally have of the great service and kindness of this shop. The owner and his staff truly are the best at offering exceptional, trustworthy service. And I love that I am supporting a locally owned business with years of experience and so many happy, loyal customers!read more

Zach in particular was attentive and helped me out which shows these guys go the extra mile for new customers. I’d recommend them to anyone!read more

I went to the Dealer and was shocked of the price they gave me on what I had to have done. Alternative Autoworx prices were a lot better so I had some other things taken care of, the mechanic explained everything that was done, the service was so much more personable and was done in a very reasonable amount of time. They will be taken care of my Subaru for a long time.read more

Subaru Owners, this is the Auto Repair Shop for Denver area. Excellent service, Customer Service, improving your existing Subaru and pricing reduced compared to Dealer Pricing with better parts in some cases. I have a 2004 Subaru 2004 Legacy Wagon they improved for another 100,000 miles. Go there first if you want, but compare here to be impressed.read more

I have a Subaru and have gotten screwed over more times then I can count by mechanics. From Firestone, Greese monkey and Big’O; these mechanic’s care and give you the facts. Safety is my biggest stress, and they make sure to tell me all that I need but also let me know what can wait or not. I recommend these mechanics 100%, two men who know it all!read more

A friend once told me that no one every says they like taking their car in for an oil change. But – I do! I’ve been taking our car here for 3ish years now and they’ve never let me down on both the little things and the major service issues. Trustworthy, super informative, and always faster than I expect too. Highly recommend!read more

Busted a radiator and needed local help fast. I called Alternative Autoworx and Joel had me bring the car in that day and was able to fix it by the next day! The staff was friendly and informative and called me several times during the process to set expectations and provide me with several options. No hidden fees from the shop and a reasonable price on labor as well! What else can you ask for?read more

I drove up from Highlands Ranch to have Jesse service my 04′ WRX after meeting his lady at a wedding she was doing photography for. So glad that I did! Him and his team are simply amazing and the best at what they do. Honest, straight forward that is easy to understand, and the best customer service; him and his team went way above and beyond on my and my car’s behalf. If you’re looking for a great Subaru mechanic, you found it. Thanks again guys!read more

I drive 30 minutes out of my way to get my 2007 Subaru serviced by Jesse and his team of mechanics. Being female and having zero working knowledge of car mechanics, I am always concerned about getting taken advantage of when taking my car in. The folks here take the time to explain what is going on with my car (if anything) and why they recommend specific parts or services. I trust their work and highly recommend them!read more
