Our Services

Colchin Automotive provides a full line of automotive repair services utilizing the best technology available today. We also offer a number of female-friendly services for busy families:

    • We offer so many car care services that it makes more sense to tell you what we don’t do. Body and paint repair is off the list – but we can connect you with pros that we trust should you need it. If you have an automotive question, we’ve got you covered. Please call on us.


  • Transparency: We explain exactly what is going on with your car and why we are making specific recommendations. We also want you to understand the process of caring for your car, what you can do to enhance the experience, what information we need to better serve you, and so on – so please ask as many questions as you like. We love it!



  • Transportation Assistance: Ask about our free shuttle service to get you home or to work while your vehicle is being serviced. In October 2016, Arvada’s new light rail system will begin service to the area, and Colchin Automotive is located just a half mile from the Arvada station – we’ll be happy to drop you off there too. Uber or Lyft are economical ride options as well.



  • Communication: Everyone has a different preferred method of communication, especially when they are at work. Direct calls, email, or text messaging – just tell us what you prefer. We text message directly from our computers, so the phone number will be one you don’t recognize, but we’ll identify ourselves.



  • Family-Friendly Amenities: From a clean, safe lobby with free beverages and children’s toys to a changing table in the restroom, we strive to be a family-friendly business in every way. We even provide a free Auto Safety Kit on your first visit!

What Our Customers Are Saying…

I wish there was a way to give more than 5 stars; this place is AMAZING! They went from being my second opinion to being my first choice in auto care in just one week! I took my 2011 Nissan Xterra there for a second opinion after Nissan suggested a $2,600 repair. Instead of wasting my time and money on trying to fix the engine in the vehicle they were very honest about the long term effects that could come of the issues I was having. They are so honest! They took the time with me to go over the issues in depth and explain to me the pros and cons of trying to fix the issue. I will now be trusting them will all the care and maintenance of my new 2015 Nissan Xterra!

I honestly think that the 1 star review on here is either someone who got shops confused and accidentally gave them a bad review or simply a competitor that is trying to ruin their reputation. There is NO WAY those statements could be true after the great customer service they provided us. These guys would never charge someone for repairs that they did not do and actually suggested cheaper alternatives to dig into the issue more. They also are very fair about the prices. Magdalena Kudasik

Josh and Jason are AWESOME! I have referred friends, family, co-workers and customers of my own. Colchin Automotive is honest and upfront and takes care in explaining. They are understanding of your budget and timing. I would HIGHLY recommend them! Kim Hobden

We brought in our Dodge diesel that we purchased used. The prior owner stated it had had the death wobble but he’d had it fixed. Within a month of owning it we’d experienced the death wobble twice. A friend referred us to Colchin and we are SO glad he did. Everyone was extremely helpful, honest and kept us informed of the work they performed. They honestly informed us that the prior repairs should have done the trick (done by the old owner at another mechanic). But when they dug in they discovered the prior repairs hadn’t been done correctly and a part was installed wrong. They fixed the issue at a reasonable price and we’ve not experienced the death wobble since. These guys are great and we will now be life-long customers. Gaylen Matzen

I have just recently switched over to Colchin Automotive from Brakes Plus. I own two vehicles and they took care of me within a day for an Oil change and alignment. I really like that they give you a detailed print out of what they did and then let me know what important things are coming up to keep my car running great. Josh is the guy I work with and he is very knowledgeable and kind. Thanks for all the great work Colchin Automotive. See you at my next oil change. Corey Humrich

I can not say enough about this shop. They have always been fair and honest and provided very curteous service. I highly recommend their services. Rebecca Bendzewicz

I’ve had many interactions with the Colchins’ on many business transactions and they are top notch business people and mechanics. You can’t have repairs done by a more professional, ethical shop! Kudos to the Colchins! Tina Kiel
