What Our Customers Are Saying

Great service! They don't have much bling, but this shop is extra friendly. The work done is really top quality. Fair price, too. Waylon is excited to work on Porsches, and he has the skills to boot.


-KT D.

This guys are the best. I've been to other shops and dealers around Santa Fe and ended up being disappointed. But not by Chad and Waylan. I started taking my BMW and Porsche to them shortly after they opened their doors, and you can trust this shop. They're not going to have you do work you don't need, and look out for signs of potential future problems, that will save you tons of money down the road. Their hourly rates are reasonable (certainly for being experts on European cars) and their work is top notch, and they always get it right the first time. And they don't pad the cost of parts. You can't ask for more than that.


-James B.

Conrad, Kim and the guys at Cutting Edge are always so helpful.


-Percy S.

I had a big job done here--engine swap on my BMW 325i (E30) and Alden did a great job. Stayed within budget, did a bunch of extra stuff not billed for, and was extremely good at communicating via email and in person as to exactly what was going on and why. I didn't always understand everything he said, but he certainly made the effort to articulate everything. Not many competent mechanics are that articulate. The staff (Kim) is always upbeat and friendly and this is a very well-run shop.


-Steven H.

Was referred to Cutting Edge for my 2006 Audi A6 repairs and maintenance and after taking my A6 here for the first time because of a check engine light (vacuum leak) these guys have earned my confidence and future business. The shop owner was very helpful in getting my car's problem diagnosed quickly and explaining the cost for the repair. The owner really went above and beyond when he put in a temp fix on the problem until I order the replacement part - all at no cost, just as a courtesy.


-Tommy J.

I was going through a tough time... and to top it off, my Volvo was having transmission issues. Another repair place recommended Chad at Cutting Edge. They explained everything well, and told me what needed repaired now vs what could wait. They not only put in a new transmission, but took the time to test it out. It's been a month, and their repairs resulted in a noticeable difference in my car. Excellent customer service, and excellent repair work. They are pros.


-Meghan H.

I broke down in my motorhome on Memorial day weekend with my son and 4 dogs. The mechanic that replaced my fuel pump earlier in the year did a very poor job. Cutting Edge was amazing! They replaced the fuel pump and some other small parts and were extremely professional and gracious with my situation. I am very happy with the services Cutting Edge provided and I will never hesitate to use them again.
