Based on reviews and the company's own statements on their website, I determined that Antonelli's exhibited the same qualities I value in my own hometown mechanic: thorough diagnostic skill, reliable service, affordability, not selling people on things they don't need, and the willingness to make things right in the event of a mistake. Basically, I value competency and integrity.

These things mattered to me when our family was facing car problems in the middle of our family vacation last week. Unwilling to risk pushing on to Utah, we headed to Grand Junction to find a mechanic. Even though our hotel was across town (and across the street from another mechanic), I brought our 2006 Pathfinder to Antonelli's for repair.

It ended up being a simple fix, but they took the extra time and effort to ensure there were no other contributing factors to our issue. And the final bill, even though our car was in their shop for quite some time, was very affordable. Bonus: although courtesy rides are not advertised, I requested one back to our hotel when I dropped the car off, and they were happy to oblige.

Expecting the most from Antonelli's, I was not disappointed. And from whay I overheard of their interactions with other customers while I was in the lobby, good service appears to be the norm for them, not the exception.

"Had my check engine light come on when I was 30 miles into Utah. Luckily, I was able to return to Grand Junction for the night. Found this repair shop in the morning and they did their best to get my car diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible so I could continue my trip to California. They did a phenomenal job and had my car done by the end of the work day. I was back on the road heading back to California within 6 hours of dropping my car off (later diagnosed as a foul spark plug). I highly recommend Antonelli's."

"Great service and great work!! I was so happy to have found this place when I first moved here. They did the pre purchase inspection on my Lexus and were very knowledgeable about the car and what needed to be done. They have always walked me through the priorities of what my car needs next, instead of the normal "you have to do it all now" pitch. They get the job done in a timely manner always and their customer service is awesome, always explaining what the problem is and why to fix it. Wouldn't take my car anywhere else in the valley!"

"Despite having replaced the power steering pump before our cross-country trip, we started having power steering and brake problems in our "vintage" '94 Camry wagon. During a planned stop in Grand Junction, we called Antonelli's based on the great Yelp reviews. They kindly worked us into their schedule, checked out the Camry thoroughly (!) and gave us the diagnosis: the new pump was shot due to an incomplete flush during installation that left the system full of gunk and minute metal shavings. The brakes were simply a matter of rotating the rotors. Antonelli's ordered the replacement power steering pump, reservoir, filters, etc., which arrived the next day and finished the job as quickly as possible. This was not a cheap repair, but they did the work quickly and efficiently at a fair price, and dropped us at our hotel and picked us up again once the repair was finished. The service reps (Brad and Amy) are friendly and very knowledgeable; both took the time to explain what the repairs would require and why; the whole crew went out of their way to take care of a "passing through" customer and made us feel like we were one of their regulars. The service tech saved the old reservoir to ensure that we could see why our new pump failed, and the service notes included a detailed explanation of the problem in case we wanted to ask for a refund from the prior servicing.

Antonelli's is a family business that clearly places an emphasis on honest, thorough, and friendly service. These folks work hard to earn your trust and your business. If we lived in Grand Junction, we'd surely be regular customers."

"Antonelli's is my go to place for my family's auto needs. My friends and extended relatives also are patrons, and I refer Antonelli's to our guests at the motels as well. I know I can trust the folks @ Antonelli's , and rely on their helpfulness and skilled auto technicians- I wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you,

"When you finally find an automotive shop you can trust you need to stay with them. These guys are wonderful. They are very knowledgeable and completely trustworthy. They have always done right by me. Their prices are fair and they genuinely care about their customers. I will never go anywhere else as long as they are around."

"A 5 star establishment. Brad called often to keep us updated on the repairs to our Toyota Landcruiser and in the end we paid less than the estimate. These folks are the best and we wouldn' t go anywhere else."

"I took a car here that I was considering buying for a "prebuyers" check to make sure there were no mechanical issues. They did a thorough check of the vehicle, and gave me tips about the car. Thanks so much!"

"It's hard to find an automotive repair company that is built on excellence and integrity like Antonelli's! My 2003 Ford Taurus needed quite a bit of work. I feel confident in bringing any automotive repair need to Antonelli's. They are by far the best experience in auto repair I have had in Grand Junction or anywhere. "

"I am a recent University graduate driving back home from Ohio. In the canyons outside of Grand Junction my car started to overheat. I babied my car into Grand Junction and chose this shop based on their reviews. I couldn't have been happier.

Someone came out to greet me and take a look at my problem. They then squeezed my into their schedule without an appointment. They were very good at explaining everything they were doing and diagnosing along with the associated costs. Once the problem was diagnosed they even drove me to a local brewery to have a bite to eat while my car was being worked on. In the end they fixed my car before the shop closed so that I could drive onto my friends I was staying with in Utah."

"The moment they said hello to us was the moment we knew this was the place. Brad and Katrina was honest, telling us there was nothing they could do the same day because of the already-full schedule. Then, what happened next surprised us. They started to call EVERYONE they personally knew who might be able to help us in town! Have you ever seen a greenland in a desert? This was how we felt. After we found one, they charged our battery many times to help start the car to drive to another store...

This is a trust-worthy store. Its employees and company culture are treasure. If you are considering which store to go, choose this one! They won't turn you down.

"Stayed in the Grand Junction area for a few days and damaged my steering shaft joint. Selected Antonelli based on good reviews and was not disappointed. Even though they had to get the parts from Salt Lake City, they worked hard and fast to make sure I can continue my long distance trip with minimal delays. Everyone I encountered at Antonelli was nice and courteous. The repair labor and parts pricing was very reasonable, and their work is covered by 24 months warranty coast to coast at any NAPA associated shop. Couldn't have asked for more!"

"I recommend Antonelli's to all the women out there who are afraid of getting ripped off! I was fairly new to the area and didn't have a mechanic, so a friend of mine suggested Antonelli's. I took his advice and was glad I did. Their prices are fair and they do a great job. The part that I appreciate the most is that they will give you a run down of things you should be keeping an eye on in the futur for good vehicle maintenance. I feel confident bringing my car here and they have great customer service!"

"There is nothing better than a business you can trust. Katrina ( I think she knows more about autos than any woman I've ever met) and Brad are always helpful patient & professional. As a woman I like the 1st name basis atmosphere. I know for a fact that they were the best deal in town as I priced 3 or 4 other Automotive shops and they edged out the competition with their rates. The auto techs can handle foreign autos as well. I have a Lexus and i wouldn't trust my baby to just anybody. Thanks for the great service you guys. Deb Feeley"

"Brad and Katrina are great!!! I thought I needed new brakes, disks and a transmission fluid change. After talking with Brad he suggested an inspection first. Turned out all I needed was two pads and to have my rotors turned (which saved me $$$). I thought I was going to be there all day... instead they had me ready to go in just a few short hours. I would recommend these people to any of my friends or family. Great job guys, keep up the good work!"

"Antonelli's certainly exceeded our expectations when taking of us as a new customer. They went out of their way to make repairs and to replace a radiator that was under warranty under the previous owner (no charge to us). The stand behind their work and are easy to work with.

Every since our first experience, they have called to make sure everything is running okay. We have returned for other repairs."

"My husband, dog, and I, were in from out of town on business when our truck broke down. We were treated like family. They immediately got started on our truck, and recommended a (dog friendly) place to stay, that was within walking distance of several restaurants. We were even given a ride to our hotel. Our truck needed about 3 times more work than initially anticipated, but the price remained reasonable. We could go on for pages about how well we were treated, everybody there went above and beyond for us. They even called to make sure we made it home safely! Which, we did, with no problems, our truck is running great!!! Our thanks and gratitude go out to them. I only wish we could find someone as good, locally"

"Antonelli's Auto are life-savers! Our daughter's vehicle survived the long trip from KC, only to begin acting up once we reached Grand Junction. Loud squealing and grinding when braking (ultimately resulting in a locked up break shoe) led us in a desperate search for a reputable auto repair shop. Fortunately, a counselor at CMU who has lived here for most of her life recommended Antonelli's. After successfully making our way to the shop, Katrina and crew welcomed us like family. They checked out our vehicle and provided us with not only a fair quote but used their van to take us to and from a local restaurant so that we could grab lunch while they worked. They provided a safety check plus repaired our vehicle within 3 hours. Our daughter will now be able to take her vehicle for regular servicing to a shop we trust. I gave them 5 stars only as Yelp doesn't allow more! I highly recommend Antonelli's and would say they are THE auto shop to go to in Grand Junction."
