Unfortunately, the automotive industry is famed for questionable ethics and less than honest business practices – we share your pain every day when we talk to prospective new clients. We are founded and run on traditional principles of personal service and absolute honesty. We know that getting your car serviced or repaired is often an unpleasant, and many times overly costly experience – that is why we go out of our way to make sure your business interaction with us is as professional, friendly, informative, and cost-effective as it can possibly be.

Passion is an understatement when it comes to describing Leader Automotive’s owner, Adam Salazar. From a very young age, Adam knew exactly what he wanted to accomplish in life; his goals strictly focused on entering into the automotive service and repair industry, but not just as a mechanic. He wanted to become someone his clients could trust, rely solely upon, and ask for help, knowing you could always count on Adam to say yes. Adam has always gone above and beyond what is expected of him. Whether it be a late night phone call assisting his clients out of a troubled situation; making house calls in the middle of a work day to help a client who couldn’t complete their own repairs; or taking time to review and teach someone, face to face, what he found on their diagnosis. All while asking for nothing in return. Adam will stop everything he is doing to help a stranger, let alone a family member, client, or friend. That’s just who he is!  In doing so, he has changed the face of your typical mechanic, he has instilled trust in the automotive repair industry.  His keen knowledge and attention to finite detail surpass most people’s expectations. Combined with his unwavering love for cars, Adam is a fantastic guy to have by your side. Please visit Adam and his Team at Leader Automotive for your European Automotive Service and Repair needs.

Shannon Salazar Leader Automotive Repair Denver, Colorado


It is certainly an interesting story regarding how Shannon entered into the automotive industry. It was the mutual love for cars between Adam and Shannon that truly sparked the start of Leader Automotive. Coming from a completely different background other than automotive, Shannon joined Adam the day he got down on one knee and proposed to her. From that day forward, Shannon knew she wanted to not only marry Adam and build a wonderful life together, but also work with him on a daily basis and take on the many challenges of owning their own business. Shannon strives each and every day to continue to educate clients about their cars and what repairs are truly needed on their vehicles.  Her attention to detail and thoroughness is what sets her apart from most service advisors and counselors in the automotive industry.
