At Andersen's, car repair starts with the diagnosis


Our dad, Al Andersen, never wanted ours to be like other repair shops. But, then, Dad never was like most mechanics. He got his start back when import cars were exotic. He had a knack for getting to the bottom of things. Diagnosis was his watchword. When he started his own business, he built his reputation on it. He always said you have to know what the problem is to fix it.

After more than six decades, we're still European car specialists. We focus on Volvo, BMW, Mercedes, VW and Audi. Diagnosis still tops the list of what we do.

Andersen's is an authorized Bosch Service Center and an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau. We belong to Automotive Service Association, Automotive Service Excellence and are Colorado ASA Gold Medallion certified. Besides full-service car repair and maintenance, we also do diesel emissions testing on all car makes and light-duty trucks.

From a check-engine light to a car that won't run, count on Andersen's to diagnose the problem correctly and get you back on the road.

    Kurt and his crew are the best. Affordable, fair, and knowledgeable. They even have no-hassle loaner cars if you need one! I won't go anywhere else!

    Kurt and his team are very thorough, and they do excellent work. The front office staffers so nice as well. I also love how when you walk in you get a big wagging welcome from a very sweet dog. It’s also very reasonably priced and I have recommended and will continue to recommend this place of business.

    Great and timely service. The closest parking place was almost a block away because their lot was full. They moved things to get me in right away and even walked down to get my truck instead of expecting me to do it. Definitely great service!

    Excellent customer service

  • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
  • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
  • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
  • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
  • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
  • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
  • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
  • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
  • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
  • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
  • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
  • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
  • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
  • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
  • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
  • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
  • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
  • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
  • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
