What Our Customers Are Saying

I have had the timing belt replaced, my brakes done, and a few other things fixed at Smokey Hill Auto Service and I have no complaints what-so-ever. They have always done a great job! No complaints at all.


-Carl

Brought my car in for 60K scheduled maintenance. They did a great job, communicated well and did it a very fair price without trying to sell me unnecessary services. This is a shop you can trust, and that's hard to find.


-David

The best auto repair shop I have ever dealt with. Friendly, highest quality work, reasonable prices and get the work done without any delays.


-Tom B.

This repair shop is great. I've used their services multiple times over the years. They are honest on the repairs needed and always charge a reasonable price. They also do the the repairs quickly. I recommend them highly.


-Chris Page

I found Smoky Hill Auto through Yelp when I moved to Colorado about a year and a half ago. A good mechanic can be hard to find, and I'm happy to say that I haven't had a problem with their service to date. Granted, I haven't required any major repairs to my car. So far, I've had standard oil changes, factory-required maintenance, and tune-ups. I've always dropped off and picked up my car after business hours, which is convenient and straightforward with their key drop box. The customer service has been excellent - the gentleman answering the phone is exceedingly polite and explains what unexpected issues, if any, were found with my car and what needs to be done. He's always kept me updated with a couple of calls over the course of the day that my car is in the shop. Payment over the phone using a credit card is easy and quick. I suppose the true test will come when a more major repair is needed, but for now, I have found their service to be honest and friendly. I'd gladly recommend them based on my experience.


-Christine G.

I have been going there for about 5 years after my friend recommended them. They are truly honest about the repair work needed. They never do more than is needed. One time I took the car in because I thought it needed a new cabin air filter and Craig told me that he had replaced it a little while back and that I didn't need a new one yet. Many auto dealers would just put in the $75 filter and not look out for you. Another time I took it in because my brakes were squeaking and I told them I needed new brakes. They looked at the brakes and told me that my front brakes were still good for another 20,000 miles so they only needed to do the back ones. Today I took my car in because the window wipers went haywire and were flapping all over the place and crisscrossing each other. Before looking at it I asked Craig how much he thought it would cost and he said it could be something simple or the whole wiper motor may have to be replaced. Either way, I needed it fixed. They called and said they just readjusted and tightened them and the charge was $27.50. They only do what is necessary and are always honest. I recommend them highly!!
