by Larry Brown, Davis Repair Here at Davis Repair, where our family takes care of your family’s cars, we’re all into doing everything we can to save the planet. It’s the last thing we think about as we drift off to sleep at night, and it’s the first thing we think about when we get out of bed each morning. Well, okay… maybe saving the planet is NOT our Number One primary concern. Maybe it’s only Number Two or Three. But saving money is right up there on the top of our list, too. Around our shop, we like money almost as much as we enjoy busted knuckles and greasy hands. Or those car manufacturers (you know who you are!) which crank out cars destined to spend more time in our shop than they spend on the road. (LOVE those!) Saving green by “going green” is great… because we get to pass that savings on to our customers! So if you’re like me&hellip ... read more
At Davis Repair we love to support great causes like The Gateway Shelter.
We would like to take a brief moment to let you know how we are responding to the COVID-19 virus at our auto repair facility. We are currently open with normal operating hours to serve our customers and your vehicle needs. The health and well-being of our employees and customers is our number one priority. We are taking great measure to sanitize our shop, with using Mircoforce Germ. Unlike normal disinfecting processes, Microforce Germ applies a charged biostatic polymer that bonds to all common surfaces attracting and mechanically killing virus spores (like COVID-19!), bacteria and fungi for up to 90 days. This is the best possible lasting protection available for our customer and employees. Click here for a brief video on the process: For more information on how it works, click here: http://www.microforcegerm.com/how-it-works/ If you have any questions or ... read more
Clean Burn Waste Oil Heater - For Eco-Friendly Warmth Earth Day - We Care About Our Planet at Davis Repair In honor of earth day, we are celebrating our efforts to protect our mother earth.In the last year our photovoltaic solar panels have generated 29,529 kWh of electricity. We recently installed a waste oil heater to use the waste oil generated by fluid exchanges such as oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, drive train fluids, and brake fluid. The waste oil heater saves about $500 per month in heating costs. We planted two trees and a bunch of evergreen bushes on the east side of our building. We recycle all of the used metal parts we remove from the vehicles we work on. Our lighting inside and outside the shop is continually updated. Our outside lights are LED for the best sustainability. Inside our shop we have T8 and LED lighting. When a light fixture fails we replace it with LED technology. At Davis Repair we are always looking for ways to conserve and recycle. We ou ... read more

Diesel engines have been used extensively in Europe and Asia for many years. They haven’t been as common in Denver because of the high sulfur content in our diesel fuel. But the government is now mandating lower sulfur content and, as a result, we are going to see more Greenwood Village car owners driving diesel-fueled vehicles on the road, especially in passenger cars and SUV’s. Diesels are popular because they get better fuel efficiency than gas-powered engines. They also last longer. Modern diesel engines are quiet and powerful. If you still associate diesel engines with black smoke, then you’re not up with the times; that smoke is a thing of the past. Diesels don’t produce any more pollutants than gasoline engines. The pollution standards for diesel-powered vehicles are as strict in Colorado as for other vehicles. Also, diesel engines can run on bio-diesel fuels as well as fossil fuels. Diesel fuel can be produced from vegeta ... read more
ShopOwner Mag just published an article laying out the findings of a new survey revealing that hacking vehicles is a major concern for almost 80% of consumers. Have you been paying attention to this issue? What do you think? The vulnerabilities of vehicle hacking have made an impression on car owners and shoppers, and nearly 80 percent say it will be a frequent problem within the next three years or less, according to a new survey by Kelley Blue Book. Awareness of the recent Jeep Cherokee hacking incident is very high, and nearly half of respondents said they will keep this event in mind when buying or leasing their next car. Moreover, the majority of consumers do not think there will ever be a permanent solution to the problem of vehicle hacking. ... read more
The Check Engine Light strikes fear into the hearts of some Greenwood Village car owners and is totally ignored by just as many. What exactly it means is a mystery to most car owners, when you get right down to it. Let’s get the urgent issues out of the way first. If your check engine light is flashing, that means that something is wrong that could cause essential engine damage. Naturally, you need to get that taken care of right away. If your check engine light is flashing, you shouldn’t drive at Colorado interstate speeds, tow, or haul heavy loads. Take it easy all the way to our service station.
