    Ladies, women, anyone who wants to feel like they are seen & treated like a real human being, and can trust the assessment and work being done on their vehicle- look no further! John & James were amazing, respectful, and have a return customer in me. Great communication, timely work, fair prices, and honest evaluation of my car. So grateful, thanks again!!

    Pretty awful experience. Took my car in due to a tail light issue. Both of the technicians I spoke to were definitely stoned, I really wish I was joking. I came to pick up my vehicle after my first appointment and there were no technicians in the shop. I had to wait 20 minutes for one to show up and he reeked of cannabis. The following appointment the guy at the desk forgot to return my keys and then proceeded to tell me that he already gave them to me, until I literally pointed them out on his desk. They ran a diagnostic on my truck and the technician couldn’t remember if I needed to replace the right tail light or left tail light at the end of it. Had to bring my car in two separate times before they even took a look at it. Really poor customer service, as they couldn’t even refer me to a manager or someone to speak with about the problem. Edit: literally went home after picking it up, fixed the problem in like 15 minutes, thank you guys for wasting my time and giving me the wrong diagnostic✌️

    I have always had great experiences at Pete's Garage. They are friendly and knowledgeable, and don't take advantage of people like me who don't know much about cars. They always fix only what I ask them to do and they only give recommendations on future repairs rather than pushing to get me to pay for non-urgent repairs. I always feel respected by the staff. The quality of their work is great and they have been helpful to me and able to squeeze me in multiple times when my car breaks down unexpectedly. I always recommend Pete's Garage to anyone I know in Boulder who needs a mechanic.

    Pete’s was able to see me when it seemed like all other places were booked out. My car wouldn’t pass emissions… they diagnosed and got the work done in one day, for a very fair price for diagnosis/parts/labor in addition to performing some general maintenance. Great people & car passed emissions.

    Thanks for the great review, im glad we were able to help you out and get your car through emissions. 😀

    These guys are chill. They quoted me $1020 for a repair, then they realized the actual part was cheaper and only charged me $748 when I picked up the car. No non sense from Pete’s Garage. I have used them a few times over the years and they always seemed up front and honest. I appreciate a good car shop I can count on and trust to do me right.

    They were very professional, considerate, and did not try to grift me so that’s great! Would recommend.

    Pete's Garage is hands down the best mechanic I have ever brought my vehicle to. My car broke down on a Friday, and I called everywhere in town to try and get it fixed before the weekend. Everyone told me they wouldn't even be able to have it diagnosed by Monday (when I already had a good idea what was wrong with it). When I called Pete's, John told me he could get it looked at that day. Not only did he get it looked at, but I was able to pick up my car with a perfectly fixed transmission only a few hours later. John charged me a reasonable and fair price. He even reached out about a month later to make sure the fix was still running okay. I can not say how much I appreciate John and the lovely staff at Pete's Garage. Not only do I trust them, but I feel genuinely respected as a customer here and refuse to take my car anywhere else for repair work.

    John & Kim are the most honest and reliable mechanics I've ever met! 10/10 customer service always! They are the only mechanics you should trust in the front range. I've never felt so safe to get my car serviced & it's always in a timely manner. If you're looking for a car shop, look no further!!!!

    I was lamenting to a friend that I had not found a mechanic, in Boulder, that I really trusted. My 2003 Toyota Matrix ( approx. 309,000 miles, whose name is Dorothy) is quite dear to me, and has had only two mechanics work on her before arriving in Boulder. My friend recommended Pete's Garage. He told me that Pete's had the type of reputation that Boulder itself use to have back in the day. A reputation wherein people could trust that they were being given exact information, that they were being charged appropriately (not gouged) and that, if the mechanic got under the hood and discovered what they thought was the problem wasn't, they would let you know and make the correction, even if it meant less money for them at the end of the day. I have found my friend's assesment to be true. I am so glad I took his advice. I have found great mechanics at Pete's Garage. I trust them. I rely on them to keep Dorothy in good working order. And I love that they are down to earth awesome. I recommend them as highly as my friend did to me!

    Thank you Michele! I'm pleased to hear Dorothy is well and that we can service her when needed. :)

    amazing shop! I am from out of state and have never had anything done to my car in Colorado. I was carefully searching for a mechanic because I don't like to let those chain places work on my cars. I have an old Honda with some obvious issues, and I don't like mechanics trying to sell me parts that I don't need because my car is old and they think I don't know better. I went to Pete's on the recommendation of a friend and I am SO thankful I took my car here! I needed an inspection and a brake job, and I'm on a tight budget because I don't work much due to COVID. They worked with me on price, didn't try to sell me anything extra, and treated me professionally and respectfully even though I'm a young girl on my own in an unfamiliar city. I really appreciated every aspect of this place - affordability, professionalism and respect, quick turnaround time (just a few hours for a whole brake job!), and my brakes are great too. They were also able to work with me for another repair I need without breaking the bank. I will definitely be coming back for my future maintenance needs!
