Stuart Hummel's auto and diesel repair shop isn't just built on hard-working mechanics or a deep knowledge of automotive mechanics. It's built on trust. At Hummels B&B Automotive, he and his family place trust next to quality, efficient work as the most important aspect of the business. Stuart should know—he’s been on the wrong end of predatory mechanics who prey on their client's ignorance. Vowing never to perpetrate that kind of scheme, he now strives to earn and keep his clients’ faith with repair and diagnostic services performed at the lowest possible cost to his customers. Every appointment, every repair, and every service rendered comes with an explanation, and he encourages his customers to frequently leave him feedback. Hummel's website even features a car care guide and video, which informs clients about routine maintenance and the proper disciplinary techniques for when car engines just won't roll over.
For seven years, Jay Gleeson ran a successful real-estate-appraisal firm, but as he mentions on his site, he "knew it couldn't last forever." And so Jay looked into other business ventures, soon trading real-estate statements for a polishing cloth. Today, he and his crews clean cars inside and out using green products that are gentle on cars’ clear coats and fresh tattoos. Their tunnel system treats 100% of its water, and as much as 80% of water is recycled after service—steps which earned the Lakewood location an efficiency certification from Denver Water. This adherence to environmentally friendly standards applies to every service, from express exterior washes in less than three minutes to the Xtreme Make Over in less than three hours.

At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
The classic Midas oil change (up to a $31.99 value for most vehicles) begins by quenching the deep-down thirst of your steed's chassis and restoring its electrolytes with Valvoline semi-synthetic oil. Midas will swap out up to five quarts of oil matched to the correct viscosity grade for your vehicle. They'll also replace your filter and conduct a 55-point courtesy check on your car. Lastly, they'll refill the wiper fluid, imbuing your vehicle with enough confidence to shrug off the slings and splatters of loose-boweled birds and directionally challenged insects.
