Whether you schedule an appointment or just pop in, you will be greeted by one of our friendly, professionals.   Then one of our Service Advisors will check in your vehicle and get your updated information and ask if there are any concerns you have with your vehicle at this time.  You are welcome to stay and wait in one of our comfortable customer lounges if you’d like and enjoy a complimentary beverage and/or a snack. We also have FREE Wi-Fi and TV available for you.  If you would rather,  we can give you a ride to home or work with our FREE shuttle service and even pick you up when your car is ready!  We offer these services to lessen the inconvenience of being without your vehicle.

Once your car is checked into the shop, one of our excellent ASE Certified Technicians starts the process for your Oil Change and Filter Service.  Your vehicle not ONLY gets an oil change but it  also includes a visual courtesy inspection.

This inspection focuses a lot on several important safety aspects of your car or truck.  The visual courtesy inspection includes checking the exterior lights and wiper blades, interior lights and warning lights.  The technicians also check for any abnormal noises the vehicle may be making.  We also inspect the battery and terminals, air filter, all of the belts and hoses, and the throttle body.  Then under the vehicle we do a visual inspection of both the front and rear brake system, brake hoses, steering components, CV/U-joints, shocks, struts, exhaust system, condition of each of your tires for wear, balance and alignment issues.  We also inspect, check and replenish the vital fluids for your vehicle to include windshield washer fluid, engine oil, transmission fluid, front differential, rear differential, transfer case, and radiator coolant.  We also check the power steering fluid and brake fluid.

The technician records their findings on the  inspection sheet and  also notes any other recommendation he may have as well as the manufacturers recommendations for services that may be due on your vehicle.

It is our job at Aspen Auto Clinic to keep you informed about your vehicle and especially to inform you if we detect any safety issues with your car.  If you ever have a question about your vehicle we are happy to answer them.  We will even take you in the back to see your car and the technician so you can see first hand our inspection results.

If for some reason there are some repairs that need to be addressed, you can be assured that all of the work that we perform on your vehicle is backed by our 3 year/36,ooo mile warranty.

We do take longer than a quick lube type business for your oil change but we also provide you with the very best in service, education, and expert ASE Certified Technicians in Littleton and Centennial/Englewood Colorado areas.

Bring your car to us, we’ll earn your trust!

One couple brought in a car to the Jet Stream location a few years ago and had this to say, “We couldn’t be more pleased with having the Pre-purchase Inspection done by Aspen Auto Clinic.  We were looking for a car for our new licensed 16 year old driver and wanted to be sure it was a good purchase as well as a safe vehicle for our teen.  We were even able to save a few hundred dollars on the purchase price by taking the report with us back to the seller.  Aspen Auto Clinic has been maintaining the car ever since we bought it and we are so happy to report that our now high school graduate still has a safe, good car to take to college this fall! Thank you Aspen Auto Clinic!”
