Aspen Total Automotive, a longtime auto repair business based at the Aspen Business Center, is under new management.

Longtime owner John Guenther handed the keys to Aspen resident Bob Dillon this month, after 43 years and 7,100 customers served under Guenther’s leadership.

“We wish John all the happiness in his retirement, and hope he takes advantage of all the snow we’ve had thus far this year,” says a press release announcing the sale of the business.

Dillon is a “recovering financial professional” with a lifelong passion for cars, motorcycles, racing and skiing, the release states. He’s a graduate of Western State College in Gunnison and has lived part-time in Aspen for the past 15 years.

The six mechanics and two service writers at ATA will remain the same, notes the release, which also touts “improved traffic flow and expanded services.”

“Bob has big ideas for making ATA your go-to resource for service and repairs on all makes and models of your vehicles, old and new,” the release adds.
