We have been bringing our car and truck to Independent Motors for 6 years now and each time we ve been is a great experience. They are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive to our questions and always get the job done in a timely manner. In contrast to other auto shops, we trust that they are only doing the work that is absolutely necessary, not suggesting unneeded repairs . The last time our car broke down and had to be towed to the shop, they immediately arranged for a loaner car, so we would not be without a vehicle. I highly recommend this shop; we will not bring our vehicles anywhere else.

Independent motors is the third mechanic I have gone to in Boulder. They are by far the best and most professional. I am not the best with cars but, I am able to do research to become an expert in the area. This place was honest and helpful with aspect of the repair.

My Experience:

My distributor had gone out and as a result my car wasn't working. I had exhausted all ideas trying to figure out what had gone out. I gave up sent it to independent motors and they quoted me 370. After one day and giving me a list of options I chose the cheapest and the next day I was driving my car. The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that it would cost 140 if they gave me a battery when in all honesty they usually only cost 100 dollars but, it's fair since they are a business and they have to make some sort of profit. I highly recommend this place in relation to other mechanics in Boulder from my own experience due to the fact that they are honest and won't try upselling you on something you don't need. **Cough Cough Boulder Honda Nissan quoting me 5000 dollars of repairs when I just needed my swing bar fixed.**

I'm a 21 year old girl who knows next to nothing about cars, so my opinion may not be as valid as people who do. However, my parents really value Independent Motors, and every time I have been there, the guys are very knowledgeable,

Kevin is awesome! I had my car in for a tune up. He did all that, fixed my stereo, fixed my heat, fixed my tires, and made my car run like a sports car again (all for the cost of the original estimate). I would recommend these guys to

Rip-off artists, Took my Nissan Sentra there today to have the AC recharged. I paid $194.54 to have them tell me that I have a hole in the condenser and that it will cost me an additional $772 to have it replaced for a grand total of

A number of years ago, after my Infiniti hit 120,000 miles, I decided to try Independent rather than a dealer. I've been very pleased with them. Their services are reasonable and what has especially impressed me are the answers they give

Being a woman who doesn't know a lot about cars........I can say I trully trust the guys at Independent .
I have been taking my 1996 Jeep there for about two years now and they never disappoint. They remember me (and my dog) by name. They always prioritize repairs for me which is a big help since I can't always afford to fix everything. I've found the prices reasonable and the staff helpful. They are always willing to take extra time to answer my questions.

I think their friends wrote the other positive reviews. My experience is quite different.

My usual mechanic couldn't fit me in for an emergency repair and recommended Independent. On his recommendation I had my car towed there. I was given an estimate of nearly $800 to fix the fuel pump. I called my usual mechanic to ask if that sounded right. He thought it was absurd and squeezed me in. (Yes, I had to pay yet another tow bill to get it to him.) He fixed my fuel pump for $204.00. That's 1/4 of what Independent quoted me.

Not only that they left the car in worse shape than when I gave it to them. The battery was dead and the starter was unhooked. When I requested they refund the $49 they charged me they refused and even got nasty with me. Such a shame.

My usual mechanic is getting tired and I would love to have another reliable place to take my car. Independent Motors is definitely NOT it. Stay away. Stay away.
