This is better than another payment each month :) – I was treated very well! My transmission was replaced at a reasonable price and my Honda runs much better now. I thought I would need a new car, but this is better than another payment each month :)
Fantastic, honest local mechanic – These guys work their tails off for their customers. They not only figured out what was wrong with my Mazda in just a couple hours for a fantastic price, but Marco had a lot of free advice for ways to take care of it outside of his shop.
What's this? A mechanic that gives you tips on how to maintain your own car instead of just saying, "Bring it in"? That's right. Like I said, these guys take care of their customers. I've never looked forward to visiting an auto shop before, but now I sorta do.
I highly recommend.
Support the Import Doctors – I have been taking my cars to the Import Doctors for 10+ years. The original owner, Mike, was a wonderful, honest and knowledgeable fellow. He once saved my friend $8000 on her new Camry - the engine on the 1-year old car was blown - Mike found out that there was a recall on the car that Toyota wasn't advertising. The new owner, Jim, is just as wonderful and a great mechanic - Please support the Import Doctors - we need more honest and professional mechanics.
Great Auto Shop - Honest and helpful – Marco at Import Doctors was a huge help for me when I was having problems with my Audi. I felt like I had been burned by another local shop and I went to Import Doctors after reading reviews on City Search. I could not have been more pleased. He was very knowledgable and identified and fixed the problem the same day. I also did not feel like he was trying to upsell me which is what my old shop always did. The prices were also very reasonable considering Audi work can be expensive. I would recommend this shop to anyone who has an Audi (or other import) and wants quality work without having to pay dealer prices.
Excellent, Honest Mechanics – We lived in Belltown for 4 years and the guys at Import Doctors cared for our 2000 Lexus GS300 the entire time. These are honest, competent, professionals who will take care of your car extremely well. Every time there was an issue that needed discussion before they proceeded, I got a call. When the work was done, it was done right and for good.
I am here in the NW on vacation and have called them to set up an appointment to work on our newer car. I could do it in California, but I KNOW what I have here. I trust these guys.
PS: I worked in operations and maintenance section of public transit agencies for 34 years. I know something about rolling stock and its maintenance.
Editorial Review – Foreign auto repair specialists revive various makes and models at this full-service center in Seattle.
An Honest Mechanic! Really! – My Dad recommended this mechanic to me when I was in college. One of the best gifts a father can give a daughter is a referral to an honest mechanic. I have taken my cars in since (going on 20 years now). Just as the other reviewer said, they only recommend repairs that really need to be done and always charge a fair price. I live in Everett now and still bring my cars in when needed, it is worth it for quick, reasonably priced and honest service. I have tried two other mechanics up North to avoid the trip. With those mechanics my husband looked at my bill and told me I was being taken advantage of. With the Import Doctor, he always says I'm getting a square deal and am right on target with repairs.
Straight forward, quality work, fair price and very convenient. – I have had my cars serviced for various things from brakes, timing belts ...well you name it. I love my cars and i am very hesitant to let just anyone touch my cars. Needless to say I wasn't sure about trying a new repair shop, but since the others I have been too have been over priced and the service was over rated. I was told about the Import Doctors from a friend of mine who has been going there for years, so I gave it a shot. Jim, the mechanic I spoke to was very knowledgeable and straight forward with me. I cant stand shops that try to sell me a new car everytime I go in. Jim, told me what my car needed and also the items which i should keep an eye out for, but he didn't try to convince me with franchise sales training bull___some of these other shops in seattle try to do. The price was very fair considering he used the quality parts that I wanted, and I was suprised he could find them for my car. In the past I have gone to some shops and requested they use a specific quality or brand of parts for my car and they dont, and 6 out of 10 time I have a problem and waste my damn time going back to them to do it right. I live downtown and there are not many shops in the area, and I dont like driving ten minutes to get to a shop where I have to wait two hours in a cramed waiting area. I like the fact that I could drop my car off and walk back home, and in the event I did have to return It's not a hassle. Its been 4 months since I got my brakes, and tune up on my car at The Import Doctors, and I have not had any problems. They did a great job and my car runs_great. My overall feeling of The Import Doctors...qualitywork, fair...convenient and I will return with my other cars.
