Our Why


The automotive industry has a reputation problem. It lacks honesty, credibility and a customer-first mindset. Business at large holds a similar notoriety. In people’s minds, profit-at-all-costs drives every decision being made, often at their expense. And for the most part, they’re not wrong. At Adam & Son, we believe in doing things differently. We prioritize three specific areas: unmatched automotive service, workplace excellence and leadership in social impact.

Auto Service. For over 20 years, we have been providing honest, excellent and dependable auto repair and service to the Colorado Springs community. Our two locations both offer a full range of automotive services - from oil changes to engine replacements - of the highest standard. We work on all makes and models, including European and diesel. There is ongoing financial investment in our technicians through on-site and online training from industry leaders like ASE. We hold an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and over 500 5-star reviews on Google.

Social Impact. As the first and only social impact auto repair shop in the nation, we prioritize being purpose-driven leaders in serving our community. This means more than just throwing money at issues. We operate four social impact programs that leverage our business to improve people’s self-sufficiency and quality of life. These programs allow us to build relationships with community members and more fully understand what issues so many in our city face. Our programs raise valuable funds but more importantly deliver tangible and lasting change. In 2022, we were recognized at the PRISM Awards as the Social Impact Business of the Year.

Workplace Excellence. We evaluate prospective employees on their character, attitude and mindset first, productivity second. There are 28 company culture fundamentals that serve as our foundation. They promote traits like honesty, collaboration and empathy. We understand that improving in these areas naturally equips employees not only to be more successful in their roles, but deliver the highest quality experience to our guests. The Colorado Springs Gazette awarded us a Best Workplaces Award in 2022 - something we’re very proud of!

Moving forward, we will tirelessly search for and implement ways to improve our business and social impact. Innovating and maximizing the potential of our changing world and industry are integral to our team. We will continue to open our arms and create an affirming environment for all guests, employees and community partners. As well as respect and stand in solidarity with the diverse individual and communal identities of all we come into contact with. We will continue to collaborate with our nonprofit and community partners to collectively initiate and sustain social impact in the Colorado Springs area and beyond.
