Auto Repair Services in Lakewood, CO
Auto Repair isn’t something people wake up early with excitement for. Usually, it is a barrier between what they need to do and what they want to do. We are working to change that notion. Merrill Automotive is a full-service repair in Lakewood CO, focused on customer convenience. If you haven’t met us, we encourage you to swing by. Our large facility is tidy, the staff is friendly and approachable. Our Lakewood auto mechanic technicians are well trained and willing to help our customers with both repair and education.
What is full service in this modern vehicle era? Full service is one stop for everything. Full Service includes all the basics like brake service, tire mounting, and balancing, timing belts replacement etc. But also includes state of the art alignments, including recalibrating the steering angle sensor up to very cutting-edge programming and ADAS recalibration. ADAS stands for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. Some ADAS examples are Lane Change Assist, Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Driver Alert systems. On average we have three computers for each staff member. This includes tablets, laptop computers for technicians, automotive scanners, and other miscellaneous equipment used daily for newer cars, trucks, and SUVs.
We believe strongly in maintenance over repair, at out auto repair shop in Lakewood. Routine maintenance will ensure a long service life for all vehicles. We have customers that are diligent about changing fluids and filters routinely because their vehicles are high mileage. Vehicles that are well maintained by ASE trained mechanics will be more reliable and longer lasting. Oil changes are the first thing most car owners think about when it comes to maintenance. Yet transmission service, power steering fluid replacement and coolant exchange are among others that will extend longevity. Don’t forget about tire rotations, we recommend that you rotate and balance your tires with every oil change. This keeps it easy to remember when the tires were last rotated. At Merrill Automotive during each oil change, we perform a multipoint courtesy check. This is a great opportunity for a skilled ASE mechanic to look over the main components of your car or truck. Performing this courtesy check while on a lift is much easier and more thorough.
Our Lakewood auto mechanics provide digital inspections with the latest technology that can text your cars’ digital inspection report directly to your cell phone, for easy access. We also store the digital inspection report into our system so each visit we can track your vehicles health. Communicating that information through text message helps with transparency and open the line communication between the Merrill Auto team and you. Both are important for our valued customers.
Merrill Automotive is an auto repair shop in Lakewood CO that wants to help each customer, we perform thorough pre-purchase inspections. There is never a crystal ball. It is always best to get an ASE Master Mechanic to spend time testing and inspecting a vehicle before sale, so you know what to expect. If you already own the vehicle no problem, Merrill Automotive can help you plan, schedule, and budget for scheduled routine maintenance. Due to better manufacturing and proper maintenance the “life of a vehicle” is much longer than it was a decade or two ago. This is a very good thing, especially with the cost of new ownership. License plates, taxes and higher insurance rates making a vehicle last as long as possible is essential. Repairs will become necessary. When working with a high-quality independent repair facility like Merrill Automotive the repairs are more manageable.
