Lotus service/repair in smaller cities?

Hello everyone,

Lotus owners that live in smaller cities, how do you go about maintenance and repair of your car?

Does anyone have recommendations for a service/repair shop Utah?
Ferrari Of Salt Lake City used to be an authorized Lotus dealer, but they no longer do it. A couple people have suggested Makes and Models in the Layton area.

Thanks in advance.

These cars use many common parts with Toyota / engine trans etc. a good quality shop can service these items. The suspension is rather simple and again a good quality shop can handle the maintancence. The tough area to service is the air conditioner and interior components as the confined space makes everything tough.


I generally research the problem and then save and take the references to the shop so they have a starting point, printing up the pages from service manuals can be helpful also. Searching this forum has a wealth of good help. This post is very on topic for this discussion https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f3/p...-elise-458242/
I would bookmark the source for shop manuals.

In most areas there is a guy around that specializes in performance cars. Seek this shop out. In my area my guy is a lot better than the lotus dealer and a lot less expensive.

What Ron said!
It's not a difficult car to care for.
Any good mechanic can work on this car.
