Factory Scheduled Maintenance



One of the best ways to keep your car in excellent condition, preserving performance and making sure it stays running smoothly is to stick to the recommendations for factory scheduled maintenance, and to make sure that you have that maintenance performed by a professional shop that knows how to treat your vehicle right.  Especially if you drive a high end import, or a classic vehicle, you want to be sure that all of your maintenance tasks are done by skilled technicians with a good grasp of your car's needs.  The specific schedule for maintenance varies by car manufacturer, so you should check your owner's manual to find out yours. 

At Austria Motors, we specialize in Mercedes Benz but also are experienced and prepared to provide high quality service and maintenance to any other vehicle to the same standard as required by Mercedes.   Whether you need an oil change, tune up,  tire rotation, air filter change, coolant flush, vehicle inspection or any other routine maintenance, you can be sure that Austria Motors will give you the very best in automobile service.   We have been performing exceptional auto repair in Colorado since 1974, and have built a strong reputation for value, honesty, and quality.

Transmission Service Lakewood



Keeping your transmission in good shape is one of the best things you can do for your vehicle's performance and longevity. As your transmission transfers power from the engine to the wheels, it undergoes a lot of stress, and this complicated system has many parts that can wear down or be damaged, so it is important to bring it in regularly for transmission service in Lakewood at our professional shop. 

If you are noticing symptoms such as grinding, slipping out of gear, strange noises or trouble shifting, you should make an appointment with Austria Motors for diagnosis and repair of whatever may be wrong with your transmission.  Even when there is no sign of trouble, it is important to have your transmission maintained and inspected regularly, as prevention is always the best cure, and if we can catch a developing problem early enough, it can often be easy and inexpensive to repair.  

We specialize in Mercedes and other European imports, which can have major differences from domestic vehicles, and are familiar with the specifics of transmission repair for these fine performance vehicles as well as any other car or truck.  Contact us by phone or online today to make your appointment. .

Import Car Heating System Repairs Lakewood



If you drive a European car, you know the special challenges in finding a mechanic who is familiar with your vehicle's needs, and now as it is getting colder and colder, you may need a shop than can provide you with import car heating system repairs in Lakewood.   There are often significant differences between domestic and import vehicles, and a technician who is unfamiliar with the details of your Benz, BMW, Volvo or other import may not be able to give your car the care that it needs.  

Keeping your heating system well repaired and properly maintained helps keep you comfortable in your vehicle, of course, but also reduces fuel waste, as a poorly functioning heater burns excess gas while trying to warm your car.  Austria Motors has a team of experienced technicians who specialize in the repair and maintenance of European autos, so we know the ins and outs of all types of  imports. We can help you keep your vehicle's heating system working at its most efficient potential, so your car will warm up quickly and consistently every time.  Learn more about our services by visiting our website, or call to make your appointment for heating system repair on your import.

Transaxle Repair Lakewood



In many front wheel drive vehicles, the transaxle takes the place of separate transmission, differential and axles. This allows for less loss of power between the engine and the wheels due to fewer moving parts, as well as increased fuel efficiency. Just like any other transmission system, of course, the constant stress of transferring power from the engine to the wheels takes its toll, and you'll want to find someone experienced in transaxle repair in Lakewood to take care of any wear or damage. Signs that it is time to have your transaxle checked out are harsh or erratic shifting, popping, grinding or buzzing noises, and leaking or burning transmission fluid.  

If you experience any of these problems, you'll want to come to Austria Motors so that one of our skilled technicians can inspect your transaxle and find the source of the trouble.  The earlier transaxle problems are discovered, the easier they are to fix, so it is best to make an appointment by phone or online as soon as you suspect an issue.   Although we specialize in European imports, we also provide expert repair for all other foreign and domestic vehicles, so no matter what you drive, we are equipped to provide you with the repair you need.

Brake Rotor Repair Lakewood



Accurate stopping when you need it most is one of your vehicle's most vital safety features, and trouble with your brakes needs to be taken very seriously. Your brake rotors take a lot of friction and wear in stopping your vehicle, and you want to find someone you can count on for your brake rotor repair in Lakewood so that you can be sure it is done correctly and your vehicle will stop effectively when you need it.  

The rotors are attached to your wheel hubs, and they are stopped from spinning by being gripped by the calipers, which then stops the wheels as well. Over time, these brake rotors wear down from that friction, and in some cases they wear unevenly, or the brake pads can even cause damage to the rotors themselves.  When this wear is uneven or there is scoring from the pads, the rotor can be removed and repaired by resurfacing them, and when they have been worn out thoroughly, they need to be replaced. 

Austria Motors can repair or replace your rotors effectively so that you will have maximum control over your vehicle when stopping so that you can drive as safely as possible.  Call or click here to make an appointment.
