Campus Auto Repair Team

A History of Quality Fort Collins Car Repair

Campus Auto Repair is a Colorado-Owned Family Business with a long history as a well-respected Northern Colorado auto repair mechanic. Founded in 1996 by Steve Berney, Campus Auto Repair used to be “Campus West Texaco.” Do you remember it? Many CSU students and professors do!

The shop quickly established itself as a trustworthy and top-quality Fort Collins auto repair mechanic center. Steve Berney’s mission was to establish a specialist automotive shop all clients could trust, just as they would a friend and neighbor. Mr. Berney’s expertise as an automotive technician—he knew hundreds of makes and models of cars inside and out—came to be surpassed only by his honesty and dependability.

The Next Generation

In 2008, David Berney, Steve’s son, took over the business. David grew up very much his father’s son. He spent his childhood around the shop and began working on cars at age six. Grease was in this boy’s blood and he always loved to spend time in the shop, to meet the customers and to learn the ropes as a born and bred mechanic. David remains the active owner/manager of Campus Auto Repair.

Whether it’s a Subaru or a BMW, a diesel truck or an Audi, David knows it inside and out.

Billie is a calm and focused car mechanic in the making. She runs our front desk, sure – because she’s top notch at customer service. But did you know that she is an awesome restorer of her own vehicles? She loves to get her hands dirty with car grease and put her 48 Ford and her two 78 Fords on the blocks and make them hum again. Mostly she enjoys working on older vehicles.

For 10 plus years, Billie managed a gas station where she met all sorts of fellow travelers on the highway of life! One of her favorite quotes is: Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you have any way!

Billie gets along really well with the guys in the shop and says that there is a family friendly feel at Campus Repair. She appreciates them helping her learn about engines and brakes and transmissions and taking the time to explain what they’re accomplishing in the garage.

In her spare time, besides working on old cars, you can find Billie camping, hiking, off roading and fishing. We love having her around and think you’ll enjoy her service with a smile!
