Helpful answers to keep you in the know
Do you offer a warranty?
Yes! We offer a two-year warranty from date of service, including parts and labor. Warranty repairs must be performed at Andersen's Foreign Car Service.
Do you have a tow service?
If you need a tow, please call the friendly folks at Denver West Towing at 303-279-3434. They'll put your car safely in our lot even if it's after hours. We'll let you know what it needs in a timely manner.
How much do repairs cost?
Car repairs are different than, say, the price for cheeseburgers on a restaurant menu. The price of a repair involves many variables and depends on what your car needs. That's why we typically only give a price range over the phone. Once we've seen your car and made a diagnosis, we'll provide you with a detailed estimate.
How much for an oil change?
At Andersen's an oil change is $48 for labor + oil & filter. We always use the oil and filter specified by the manufacturer for your car.
Does my car need more than an oil change?
Getting an oil change without an inspection is like washing the dishes but not the glasses. An oil change is only one part of proper scheduled maintenance and periodic service. Andersen's Multipoint Inspection includes an oil and filter change according to manufacturer's specifications, plus a thorough inspection of your car from top to bottom. It gives you a complete picture of your car's condition at time of service. Most importantly, it helps us identify trouble before it causes you headaches later. To avoid unhappy surprises, follow your owner's manual's advice on scheduled maintenance and have your oil changed as part of Andersen's Multipoint Inspection.
My car's new and still under warranty. Can you service it?
Yes! We can do routine, factory-recommended service and maintenance including oil changes, service lights, tires and more. If we find something covered by warranty or manufacturer's recall, we'll alert you so you can get it repaired by the dealer.
I bought an extended warranty. Can you do the work?
Yes! Depending on the terms, we can do most service or repairs covered by the extended warranty you bought at your automotive dealer for your pre-owned or used vehicle.
Is having my car scanned at the auto parts store good enough?
Here's the problem with generic scanners - they don't tell you as much as you might think. They only scan the engine and transmission and don't cover other critical systems. They don't actually report all the "fault codes" set by your car's computers. Most importantly, they may flag a problem but they don't say why. At Andersen's we use factory-recommended diagnostic scanners designed for your specific car. We go beyond reading numbers on a screen and focus our decades of experience on proper diagnosis. It's not just about replacing parts for us, it's about solving your problem.
What's the status of my repair?
Share your email address and/or cell phone number with us and we'll send you a link to your repair order. It's quick, convenient and available when you are. Not only can you see what we're working on, we post helpful pictures in real time so you can see what we're finding.
My Check Engine light is on, can you do something?
The Check Engine light (aka Service Engine Soon) tells you your car's sensors have noticed a problem. It means you should get your car checked. We've got the factory-recommended scanners to "read the codes" and reset the light. Best of all, we've got the know-how to advise you whether it's urgent or not and address the problem if it is.
Do you sell tires?
Yes! We have a wide selection of tires available including Continental, Michelin, Pirelli and Uniroyal. We mount and balance tires. We do tire repairs. We'll swap your street tires for snows in the winter. We also do alignments and other tire and suspension maintenance and repair.
What's this TPMS light?
The TPMS light, or Tire Pressure Monitor, typically alerts you when tire pressure is low. Let Andersen's check it for you and make sure there aren't other problems.
I got my X5 in early 2021 and started going to Andersen's for service soon after. Since my first visit, I've trusted my beamer with the service technicians and other staff at this shop. The services are affordable, the labor is consistently high quality, and you're usually in and out in a couple of hours. Unlike some recent dealership service center interactions, with Andersen's, I'm not worried about whether the work was done properly, as the performance of my vehicle afterward speaks for itself. Every time. Additionally, when my X5 needed some warranty work done, Kurt was immensely helpful in explaining the specific issue and what to say when I reached out to BMW North America and scheduled the warranty work at a dealership. I HIGHLY recommend Andersen's Foreign Car Service for maintenance of your beloved imports!

Fantastic! Repair completed BEFORE estimated time (2 weeks early!). Professional, reasonably priced and extremely well qualified. These guys found the problem with my Audi that 2 other shops gave up on! Will use again in a second!

Great work! Very professional. Came in for a trouble light and instead of dumping parts into the vehicle and charging us a lot of money, they cleared the code and said let's wait and see. Thank you very much!
