Am new to the site. Is there a forum for discussing experiences with dealerships in Colorado? I've never owned a Chevrolet before. Do most people take their Corvette to a dealership for service? If so, which are the best ones? -Golden
Good questions! Many do take their Corvettes to dealerships, but finding the right one is critical. Finally found one who takes outstanding care of my Z06 -- after "firing" two previous ones. Conversely, there are many on this forum who do most or all of their own maintenance. If someone is so interested, skilled and has the right tools, that would be a great option -- but personally lack the technological skill nor the tools.
Here's a previous forum thread that will help you answer your questions.
As mentioned in that thread, I personally found out where to bring my Corvette for skilled maintenance by asking at a local Corvette club, or if you would rather not drop in on a club meeting, google and find out who are the Presidents of local Corvette clubs (there are several in your area), and call and ask those persons your very same questions. In fact, your question got me curious and so I googled this question and came up with two forum responses to your very question, and here they are verbatim:
Posted by "Ramman":
"I and many other Denver area Corvette owners make the drive to Purifoy Chevrolet in Fort Lupton.
They are really into the Corvette market. They even have a Separate Showroom for them.
This is an old fashioned small town dealer. The man that owns it loves Corvette’s and the shop is always spotless. When I had to leave my car overnight for an A/C problem that was under warranty they gave me a free loaner car. I recommend that you stop by and just look around before you need them."
"I'm with RAMMAN, Purifoy is serious about Corvette's and has been for many years. The only drawback is the distance to get there. Purifoy also does aftermarket work including superchargers. Very clean service bays and attentive service managers.
I've no experience with Medved and will therefore abstain from comment. I would however be happy to discover that Medved is indeed another option in addition to Purifoy. In my opinion, there simply are not enough dependable and trustworthy dealerships delivering Corvette service.

As both of these posts preceded this forum and are several years old, would still recommend your contacting someone in a local Corvette club and asking them their opinions about Purifoy Chev in Fort Lupton and/or other Corvettes dealers in your area.
Emich chevrolet is one of the reputed dealer in CO , I have personaly used it for once and it was a great experience. They offer a wide variety of auto repair and auto parts services including oil changes, tire rotations, warranty service, brake service and more.
I have used Bozarth in Lone Tree because they have a World Class Tech who owns Corvettes. His name is Noel. Talk to Greg Ryball, the tech writer and he will set you up. I purchased my C7 from Emich, and they changed my oil, no charge, after I drove it back from the museum at 1300 miles. Don't know if their service department is up to snuff.
From the convenience aspect I picked Medved Chevy. Close to the house I've had our Equinox serviced there without any problems. So I worked with Mike in their sales department. Lucky for me he has extensive background in the Vette world. Being a salesman myself I saw his skills shine in his presentation skills and his general follow up in the sales process. From the beginning of first walking in this past July to order to the delivery in early September of this year I was pleased with Mike and Medved. Soon will be the first oil change/tire rotation service. I'll take the car to Medved and see if the same positive experience applies to the service side of the house.
