  • 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.

    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.

    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!
  • 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.

    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.
  • 1706 12th Ave, Seattle • Capitol Hill
    Laura - Imagine a mechanic that's transparent about pricing, great about communicating when work will be done, and gives you spot-on guidance about work that you can put off. Yup, that's these guys. Oh, and you get a car wash too.
    Dae Yu - Car Tender is a solid dealer alternative - cheaper than the dealer, great to work with.
    Aaron Hedquist - Had to fix the A/C in my VW. Had a great experience!
    First, they were very communicative, quick to answer the phone, and were able to give me an estimate quickly. Second, they were less expensive than I was expecting. And they were able to work around my schedule and get the service done on time with no unexpected costs.

    Stephen Nash - I’ve been taking my BMW to Lance for over 10 years. I trust him implicitly. My car will be 20 yrs old on 1/31/19. Lance gets credit for at least half of that!
    Matthew Berk - Lance is all business, no nonsense. When I don’t feel like getting jacked by the dealer, Lance takes great care of my car.
    Alan Steele - Fat City have been taking care of my 1999 Mercedes ML320 with about 180k miles on it for the last few years. They know how to keep it running without charging me for unnecessary repairs. They also are prompt and reliable, which I really appreciate.
  • 34th Street Garage, 2410 34th Ave W, Seattle • Magnolia
    Jonathan Sposato - They are super conscientious and honest. Every car that I've taken there as come back better than it was when I took it in. They even have a machine shop on site, so if they can't find a part, they just make it. I have old, weird cars and these guys fix them all.
    Griffin Deebach - I have used this shop four times. These guys are great. You may get sticker shock but that is because they fix things the right way.

    Rich Tong - Awesome folks. Get your tires dropped shipped from Tirerack and they mount them. Super reliable. Great alignment too
    Aydin Ghajar - Great prices, easy to schedule, honesty. What more could you ask for in a mechanic?
    Mike Merwin - Byron and his team are amazing - and can do just about anything related to your car's suspension, alignment etc.
  • 7301 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle • Ravenna
    Ben Shorr - Nobody named Louis works here. Discuss. Dan has taken care of my Volkswagon Vanagon for years- including an engine replacement. Small shop; no lift; good work.
    Todd Edebohls - We take our Volkswagen here for repairs. The owner is always there. They’re quick and fairly priced, and have helped us avoid unnecessary repairs.

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 yourmechanic.com 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.

Anyone have experience replacing a 2014+ BMW battery? The local dealership is quoting way more than I expect. It's the first time I've had to repla...

Jon Wang @mattgambo It's been a while since I've last been, but I recommend Signature Independent in Kirkland. The guys know their stuff, prices were reasonable, and they were trustworthy.

Brian Glaister I dont have a BMW, but AAA came out and changed the battery in my Chrysler which required jacking it up and going through the wheel well. They did it right on the street in front of my car for $140, I think
Susan Stocker Stone's Garage is great. They work on my Porsches and do beautiful work! Every time I am in there, they have BMWs and Audis lined up. They're fair, honest, reliable, personal, and are just nice people.
