Best Seattle Auto Pros

  • 1. Wrench
    2101 4th Ave 1060, Seattle • Belltown
    Liz Pearce - Used Wrench for the first time this weekend after giving up driving all the way to the dealership in Ballard, where I usually get service work done. Price was cheaper than the dealership and on-par with Jiffy Lube (this was for an oil/filter change). They had to reschedule my service from the time I requested, but they offered several alternatives and gave me a 10% discount. The mechanic was super nice and offered some helpful tips. Overall a very good experience.
    Shauna Causey - And during the pandemic, I think it's especially great because they come out to your house.
    Steve Banfield - I have used Wrench in the past when my car wouldn't start. Instead of me doing trial and error on the problem, running back and forth to the parts store the Wrench tech came and quickly resolved the issue. Great service.

    Shauna Swerland Youssefnia - super efficient- easy - fast
    Andrew Bohrer - I am not passionate about getting my car washed. That said, Pink Elephant does a good job, it is worth the money, and everyone else is no better than relying on rain. Also, the Deny Triangle liquor store is next to their downtown location, one of the nicer selections in Seattle.
    Steve Banfield - Fast and efficient every time.
  • 7900 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle • Phinney Ridge
    Tom Laramee - Matt's always takes the time to explain what they're going to do, how long it will take, and how much it will cost (and they're quite accurate).
    Wendy Quast - They are always professional, on time, reasonably priced and their customer service is wonderful.
    Jessica Bryant - Matt is awesome and honest. Takes great care of my car. I go to the second location on Aurora - it's brand new and plenty of parking.

    Kirby Winfield - The Beary Best!
    Ben Shorr - Reliable. Splurge on the $4 high speed vacuum even though it feels wrong.
    Adam MacBeth - There really is no other option for a quick on demand automated wash. Affordable and gets the job done!

  • 4333 Leary Way NW, Seattle • Ballard
    Carl Haynes - Had the car (1998 Honda CRV) towed here the last couple times it broke down. They did a good job getting it back up and running
    Ryan Burt - Excellent service and super trustworthy!
    Jeff Malek - Best service in Seattle, after having tried many!
  • 1426 23rd Ave, Seattle • Central District
    Omar Shahine - Super convenient and well located
    Patrick O'Donnell - I feel like I do a better job than the machine in the self-serve here, though it's a race against the clock to finish quickly with the meter running.
    Darrell - Easy location and usually not too busy.

  • 3801 SW Alaska St, Seattle • West Seattle
    Carly Canter - I have purchased all the tires for the many cars I have had. They also offer a great deal on brake work and batteries with up to a 7 year warranty on most services.
    Gary Lundgren - They have patched multiple tires for free for me. Sold me tires without trying to up sell and are quick and thorough.
    Aren Kaser - If you aren't from the NW you may not be familiar with Les Schwab. They used to give away free beef years ago to customers, kind of a NW tradition. The service, warranty, and additional support they supply for their shocks, struts, tires, and rims are unmatched by dealerships or small mechanic shops. I have taken every car there since I could drive for those four purchases.
  • 4401 4th Ave S, Seattle
    Steve Banfield - Got a new set of tires there recently. Took a while to find the tires in stock online but once ordered they came in quickly. The installation was simple and painless. Great service.
    Jay Bjorn - great store!

  • 2437 6th Ave S, Seattle • Industrial District
    Tony Wright - Amazingly organized/communicative mechanics with mostly female mechanics.
    Stephen Nash - My dear friend, Eli Allison, owns/operates Repair Revolution. His staff is incredibly helpful and the service that they provide has exceeded my expectations. I just recommended RR to a friend at work and she was also thrilled with their work and customer service.
    Charlie Hall - Found this gem of a company and they are honest, charge fair rates, don't try to sell you on anything and look out for your best interest.
  • 1216 S Weller St, Seattle • International District
    Arry Yu - Steve and Curtis are two brothers that LOVE cars and are super knowledgeable, good human beings. I trust them completely with any vehicle. I think they have a special love for BMW's especially. ;)
    Dae Yu - Cmarr is like your cousins shop-personal service. Call them ahead for quotes.
    John Pierce - They are extremely fair, honest and knowledgeable.

Patrick O'Donnell Our 15 year old daughter is in the middle of this now. We're using Defensive Driving School out of the U-district. So it may not be the closest to you, but during covid, everything she's done so far has been online classes. Next step is to schedule her five drives. We've been happy with them so far. Good luck!
Daniel Robbins Thanks for the info.
So far I'm hearing:
- Defensive Driving School
- Swerve
- 911
- RoadSafe
Fiona Lennard Both my kids have done the Defensive Driving through the Mercer Island location. The big bonus is that it is a safe place to learn to drive. It is really a quick drive across the bridge, no parking issues and you can get some errands done while you are there. Bonus!

Heather Redman Tesla S low profile something or others? you can tell I don't pay much attention.
Chek Lim I've used Sound Wheel Works in Bellevue and like their work a lot. The Tesla low profile wheel design isn't the best so I hear you on being a 'chronic curb abuser' :(.
Heather Redman thank you!

Arry Yu Best places - for internal/engine stuff especially BMW's, go talk to my friends at CMarr (Steve & Curtis). Tell'em hello. :)

For external body stuff especially BMW's, Car Tender in Capital Hill.
Stephen Nash The only place I trust with my BMW is Fat City at 5th and Denny. Check out my review here on Fresh Chalk.

Liz Pearce Hi Kim - I haven't used but I have recommended Wrench, which I think is a similar concept. Just this weekend, though, I had a car emergency. I ultimately took it to Ken at Village Auto near UVillage. He was very friendly and solved the problem quickly.
Ryan Burt I would second Wrench for mobile service. They are a local startup. If you want a standard mechanic shop, Superior Auto on Leary is very good and trustworthy (although probably not the cheapest). If you have just one issue and you know what it is the mobile option is a good one.
