My wife and I purchased a Saab® 9-3 about 4 years ago and heard that you needed an expert to work on it. We did our research and chose Saab® Colorado as we really liked the personal attention Don gave us when we called.
I know without a doubt you can’t find someone more versed in Saab® vehicles and his staff has been awesome to work with as well. They go through the car with a fine tooth comb every time you take it in, set up warranty work and most importantly are fairly priced and honest about what needs to be done when to keep the car running well.
A specific example of great service was when we had an electronic part fail and had to have the car towed to the shop from the airport after 5:00pm. Don stayed at the shop until 7:00pm to be there to meet us and I knew what was wrong (simple battery connection) and what it would look like to fix it by 9:00am the next morning! We picked up the car that night!
It’s also cool to be able to go into a shop and actually talk to the people that work there and have them treat you like real people and never talk down to you like you’re stupid since you can’t fix your own car. We will continue to buy Saab® cars and will continue to take them to Saab® Colorado [now Euro Tech Colorado].
5 Stars! A month ago I took my Saab in for a quote and Don took the time to test drive my vehicle prior. Come to find out, the ‘necessary’ maintenance told by previous mechanics was NOT necessary, and most importantly, saved me $500-$1,000. Also, the quote was the exact amount at time of service. When does that ever happen? Never. Don is extremely knowledgable, thorough, and honest. I wish I would have found his establishment years ago!
Thanks Euro Tech!
I want to personally Thank you for your assistance, expeditiousness , and personal attention! You were both so nice to us and treated us most kindly and professionally! We so appreciated your fairness and service. Thanks again.
Before taking my 9-3 to Euro Tech, I had always gone to a Saab dealership that over-charged and treated me like another number. When I had a problem, they would give me the run- around and never the personal attention I now receive at Euro Tech. Don is extremely helpful, explains what he needs to do and will actually show you the problem/fix. At ETC, I feel like a valued customer and confident that I can take my Saab to Don and not worry about being lied to, over-charged or scammed. Not being from Colorado, I feel lucky to have found a mechanic I can trust. He’s awesome! Highly recommend.
My professional relationship with ETC began with a positive twist of fate.
I had been told my 2002 Saab® needed a new engine and had intended to call the dealership to get a new engine quote but my eyes were off on the Dexknows page and I ended up calling Don at ETC instead.
Don took the time to hear my problems and offered to look at the car for free if I had it towed to his shop. He could not believe the engine had failed and was more concerned with solving the challenge and learning than in making a buck. He was absolutely awesome.
I had my car towed that morning and by the end of the day he called me with the good news that it was the air conditioner compressor and not the motor knocking. What a relief. Since then I have only taken my car to Don. He is honest and knows everything about Saab®s and nice as well.
I love the family atmosphere of the shop and I never have to wait for my car or an appointment. His services are extremely cost competitive and he and his team have the customer for life philosophy that has earned my business.
Even though his shop is a far drive for me, I only go there as it gives me great peace of mind. It is a pleasure to do business with ETC.
My experience with Don and Talissa at Euro Tech Colorado has been entirely positive. From the day that Don performed the initial inspection on the used Saab® 9-3 that I ended up purchasing, the Euro Tech Colorado team has been amazing to work with. They are responsive, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional.
I always know that I’m going to get the straight story and top-quality work when I bring my car into Euro Tech Colorado. Don and his team are real pros and I wouldn’t trust my car to anyone else.
Don has serviced our three Volvo’s since 1988. Service has always been easy to schedule, and work is completed correctly and on time. If there is any issue or delay, Don or Talissa is on the phone with an update. Don has been using and recommending BG products all the years I have been a customer. My Volvo is a C70 coupe that I purchased with 4,000 miles, and currently has over 134,000 miles. Every oil change included BG oil additive. While driving skiing this spring, I noticed some puffs of smoke when I was going downhill at the Eisenhower Tunnel. I made the appointment already thinking the worst. Don checked it out and told me the turbocharger had failed and he would check into the best replacement. He called several days later and said that BG was going to cover the cost of the turbo repair $1,800. This is the type of service that I have always received from Don. Top notch products, personal service and they stand behind everything they do. They even looked up all the paper work to send BG. I have recommended them many times to people that drive the brands that they service.
I found ETC after a misdiagnosis from the dealership and being way overcharged. Don fixed my car, worked with my warranty company, and has kept my Saab running in tip top condition. Talissa and Don always work around my schedule even in an emergency. Talissa does a great job running the office and maintaining the website. I am a loyal client to Euro Tech Colorado and wouldn’t take my Saab anywhere else for repairs.
I really appreciated how determined Don was to get to the bottom of the problem I was having with my 97-X. I know it was an issue no one had seen. Others could not solve the problem, including the dealership where I purchased my car. Thank you so much!!!
While waiting at ETC for my turn (I had the day off and was in no hurry), I got to talking with Don and the customer ahead of me who’s oil change was almost finished. The customer mentioned a squeaking noise that happened under specific conditions. Don made a quick inspection of something around the front left brake rotor and within a few seconds said “Here’s your problem.” It is always a pleasure to see a master at work.
