Jeeps are great Colorado cars. The Jeep Cherokee, Wrangler, and Grand Cherokee are just as at home on snowy mountain roads, long washboard dirt roads, and icy city streets.
We’ve worked in Jeep dealerships, servicing Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep car and trucks. Many of our technicians have Jeep factory training, and our service department collectively has 119 years of experience working on vehicles of all makes and models. In that time, we’ve learned to repair just about any issue, on any make or model, including Jeep.

Jeep is a brand of American automobiles that was originally created in 1941 by the Willys-Overland Company for the United States military during World War II. The original Jeep was a small, four-wheel-drive utility vehicle that was designed to be simple and reliable. After the war, Jeep began producing civilian versions of the Jeep for the general public.
Jeeps are great for adventure. They’re commonly lifted and are one of the best vehicles for off-roading. Jeeps are an offroading powerhouse. Have you ever heard of Jeep week? It happens every spring in Moab, Utah. That’s less than 400 miles from Wheat Ridge, Colorado.
You’ll see 1000s of Jeep Wranglers during traveling far off the main highways across Colorado and Utah all summer long. The pedal on the driver’s side footwell is covered in morse code, spelling out “sand, snow, rivers, rocks. That pretty much sums up the Jeep experience. You can take a Jeep anywhere.
Older Jeeps even have a solid axle, a sought-after feature for dedicated 4×4 offroading. Jeep Wranglers are known for their iconic design, which has remained relatively unchanged since the original Jeep was introduced in 1941.
Though Jeeps are generally reliable, they do have some common problems. Some common problems we see on Jeeps are: oil filter housing, camshaft replacement, oil pan gasket, engine replacement, transmission repair, heater and ac blend door replacement, HVAC blend door, ball joint replacement, failed spark plugs, rear main seal issues, cracked exhaust manifold, failing throttle position sensor, transfer case failure, issues with the drivetrain control modules, and problems with the differential bushings. We also commonly see issues with Jeep CVTs (continuously variable transmission). We can fix failed CVTs with a direct replacement, either a factory model or aftermarket CVT.
