BMW Auto Mechanics in Salt Lake City

BMW’s are complex and sophisticated vehicles. A trained hand is required to work on these machines, and a standard repair shop will not make the cut. Alex’s Autohaus has dealer trained technicians with the training and experience needed to repair and maintain BMW vehicles. We speak Bavarian, the language of the BMW brand!

BMW utilizes a system of lights to tell the car owner when services are needed. These lights and this service schedule will get you through the car’s warranty period but are NOT reliable guides for the long-term health of the vehicle.
