Review & Rating
Once I discovered this auto shop, I've continued to use it even though I moved to Lafayette. They are honest, friendly, reliable, the best.
The rare find, an honest automotive repair shop. I never hesitate to recommend Glenwood Automotive. Top-notch outfit.
The very best, and most honest, auto care, auto service, auto repair around! Larry and his crew have been servicing my autos for more than 20 years. I wouldn't go anywhere else, even under dealer warranty. I will also seek consultation here before buying another.
This auto repair shop is one of the very best in the Boulder Area. I have had three different vehicles repaired here and each job was top notch. What is unusual about this place is the people are honest, capable and trustworthy, something rare in today's world. I cannot recommend it high enough. The manager, Steve, will help you determine what you need to do without trying to talk you into unneeded repairs and the work that is done will be excellent and reasonably priced. Jim Gagen
I'm visiting Boulder from Georgia. I picked Glenwood just because they're about a block from my rented apt.
I was treated very well here. They looked at the issue with my car, called back within about an hour, explained what was going on, why it wasn't a problem for my return trip, and what I should probably do long-term after I get home. They also did an oil change (I requested) and changed an air filter. There were no additional charges and no surprises.
Someone less honest could easily have sold me services I didn't need. It was nice to be treated honestly.
I probably won't ever need auto service here in Boulder again, but if I did, they'd be at the top of my list.
They agreed to rebuild my front breaks using my parts for their shop rate at 3.4 hours. They called me and said that they needed brake pads and said it wasn't a problem and they would get them locally for me. I agreed. When I went to pick up my van I was presented with a bill for $128 for the brake pads. I checked local prices on google and found their price was anything from 2 to 5 times what pads cost. So I felt they were gouging me on the price. Then they wanted to tack on another $20 for what they called shop costs. They agreed on a compromise for the cost of the brake pads. They came down to $79 for the pads which was the most expensive they could find on a list of locally available pads I had printed out and brought in with me. It ended up costing me about $100 more than their original quote. I do not feel that this was unreasonable but do feel that they tried to gouge me on the cost of the brake pads and could have told me in advance about their additional shop costs. I confronted them on this and it was unpleasant. The unpleasantness was probably partly my fault. But I wouldn’t feel comfortable using their shop again.
Hi Steve, I like delivery parts to them.
There aren't enough stars for me to accurately rate Glenwood Automotive. I'd give them 10 stars if I could. They are exceptional, and I won't take my car anywhere else.
I can’t recommend them enough!!! They truly care here and are beyond trustworthy! Steve has gone above and beyond helping me understand my vehicles needs and feeling comfortable! I will always be taking my vehicle here they are great!!!
