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.

    We have taken our Volvo XC90 here for years and have been extremely pleased with their service. The owner, Kurt is great. He never oversells on things that are not needed.

    Family owned car repair and service provider specializing in foreign cars. I prefer Andersen's above dealer shops for my BMW 535XI.

    We have been customers at Andersen's for over 25 years. I trust them completely. We have taken Volvos and BMWs there without any complaints as to the quality of service received.

  • reviewicon


    Kurt is the best!! We have been customers for nearly twenty years and Andersen has serviced our Volvos, Mercedes, BMWs and MINIs, both gas and diesel, for minor and major repairs. It's hard to find an honest shop but Andersen is the real deal! Always timely, reasonably priced and up-front. I will only have my cars serviced here.

    A few months ago, I discovered a gas leak that appeared to be around the gas tank of my 2005 E55 AMG Mercedes. I ordered this car in 2004...it's my all time favorite car. I had the car towed to Andersen's in Golden. A couple of days later I get a call from Kurt Andersen. They had inspected the car and found the leak. Before proceeding with the work, they checked for any outstanding recalls on my car and, amazingly, found an open recall campaign that had been issued on my car years ago. I had never received any notice of the recall. Kurt called Mercedes of Denver to verify that the recall was valid. To make a long story short, Mercedes covered over $2,000 in parts and labor...Andersen could have easily made the repairs and charged me, but they didn't, they took the extra step for the customer. I sum this all up in one word, INTEGRITY. A rare commodity in many businesses today. Thank you to Andersen's.

    Been going to these guys for years for my old diesel. Tried a different place a while back and quickly returned to Andersen with no regrets. I will echo other comments about it being an honest shop.

  • reviewicon


    Top notch honest shop.

  • reviewicon


    I really have enjoyed working with the staff at Andersen's. I will normally try to do the repairs myself, but when I can't, I trust that they will do a good job at a good price.

  • reviewicon


    Super friendly and fixed my car quickly and all for a great price. Will go there next time my car has anything wrong!

    They are honest and hard working, not to mention considerate. I would highly recommend Andersen's.

  • 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.
