No Pressure Customer Service
Have you ever felt pressured by a car salesman? They tried to lead the conversation, and convince you to look at a car you didn't really want?
Most dealerships pay their employees on commission, so they will do anything to get you into a car. At Automotive Avenues, we don't believe in bullying our customers (or our employees!), so we've dropped the traditional commission model.
Our sales team is dedicated to one thing: taking care of you, and helping you find the car you want.
At a typical dealership, part of the buying process is lengthy negotiation over price... and if you don't negotiate well, you end up getting ripped off!
We don't think that's good customer service. We think things should be simpler, more honest. Our no-haggle prices are competitively priced at or below market value. It's like we've already done the negotiating for you!
Peace of Mind
Never worry about getting stuck with a lemon. We put our pre-owned vehicles through a rigorous 240-point safety and diagnostic inspection, and offer free vehicle history reports through AutoCheck.
Just in case you are still worried (we understand), you have our money back guarantee on our entire stock! If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase within 48-hours and 200 miles, bring it back, no questions asked. We are also happy to exchange your car within 7 days and 500 miles.
On top of all that, we include a complementary 60-day or 2,000-mile limited powertrain warranty for vehicles whose manufacturer warranties have expired.
Financing made easy
We have exclusive partnerships with Bellco Credit Union, Credit Union of Denver, Denver Community Credit Union, and Coors Credit Union, and additional partnerships in the community, so we are equipped to tear through the red tape, and provide guidance with financing.
Our great customer service doesn't end when you drive away. Let us continue care for you at our state-of-the-art service garage in Lakewood, open Monday-Saturday. We service all makes and models with brand-name parts and fluids. Click here to schedule service, or call (888) 698-3671.10 Driving Tips to Help You Embrace Life in the Mountains.
Colorado is an amazing place to live, with so much to offer to one seeking adventure.
Whether you're visiting Waterton Canyon right in the Denver area, or trekking out to Vail, there are opportunities everywhere to hike, camp, bike, horseback ride, ski, and much more! You needn't go far for close encounters with wildlife, from bighorn sheep and mule deer, to cutthroat trout and lark buntings!
Mountain life is awesome, and Colorado has it all.
But how are you getting out there?
Here are some tips that will get you up those mountain roads safely!
Watch Your Temperature Gauge! The biggest danger while climbing a mountain slope is overheating.
Go Slow. If you've got a 4-cylinder engine, or you're towing something, you may need to slow down. Keep to the right hand lane, and pull over if you have several cars queuing up behind you.
Turn off the A/C and any other electronics. This will give your engine more power.
Pull over. If you begin overheating, pull over at the nearest safe location. Most mountain roads will have pull-off areas for precisely this reason!
Get Serviced Before a Big Trip! If you have an older vehicle, it's a good idea to get your belts and hoses, as well as your coolant checked. If you have overheating issues, you may want to have your radiator professionally serviced. There's nothing worse than breaking down on a mountain, out of cell phone reception!
Don't Ride Your Breaks. At least not all the way down the mountain. Under constant use, breaks heat up and become less effective, creating a dangerous situation. So, how do you reduce strain on the breaks?
Downshift to first or second gear. This lets the engine slow the car, instead of the breaks.
Pull Over! Just like driving up the mountain, if your breaks begin to overheat, pull to the side wherever it is safe to do so.
General Tips!Always keep a safe following distance.This is especially important with mountain driving where cars may need to make sudden stops or swerves to avoid fallen rocks, or deer.If it's foggy on the mountains, turn on your headlights. Even if you don't need them to see, it will let other cars see you coming!
At Auto Aves,we've got a wide selection of pre-owned AWD Trucks and SUVs that can handle anything our state can throw at you.Come visit one of our two showrooms, in Lakewood, CO on West 6th Avenue and Havana Street in Aurora, both conveniently located in the greater Denver metro area.
