Toyota mechanics in the area?

I just moved here and don't have anywhere to work on my cars. Can anyone recommend a shop that does quality work? I need to do the timing belt on my 07 V8 4Runner, as well as all the wear items associated with removal of the timing belt (water pump, idlers, tensioner etc.). I'd want all OEM parts used. I'm totally ok with a dealer as long as the work is good and the price is reasonable.

Thanks!

Oh, and I have a 2007 Mazda 3 that needs similar work too, if anyone knows a good Mazda shop...

Where are you located first? The fat kid is good. Bsus works for Toyota in the springs. Also Wakkjobb has a shop in the springs but he is in Alaska goofing off.

Most would tell you to hit up the fat kid. Hes very good I hear. I would bet others will chime in at some point for other options.

No worries, I have gotten good estimates from Slee Off-road and The Toy Shop for the work so at this point I will probably go with one of them. Most likely Slee.

Good to hear. They seem to have an excellent reputation so I think all should go well. Hopefully I can find a driveway or somewhere to do fluid changes so I don't have pay Slee for that too.

Not too close to Thornton but ATLR in Golden is a good place for maintenance work. Jesse has a family ran business and only uses OEM parts. Prices are reasonable too.

Check out Rock Toy Industries. They are in Englewood and just work on Toyota trucks and 4Runners.

Thanks for the links! They all seem very competitive. It looks like there are a lot of good quality Toyota shops in the area.

Anyone ever used ATLR? Their advertised services are great deals.

I've used ATLR, he does good work. His shop is about 2 miles from where I live, so it's convenient for me.
