I can't say enough about this place. It is almost too cool to even exist.The best, most courteous, efficient, truly caring, and quality car mechanic in Seattle. Not only will they be 100% transparent about the pros/cons + cost of different fixes (pre-emptively so you can decide before they do the work,) but their first concern is always to do what is best and SAFEST for their customers. I have always felt that my and my son's safety were the #1 priority at Swedish Automotive, and every time I go back, they legitimately care about how we are doing, how their work is performing in the vehicle, and how they can do better.Last time I came in, I was expecting a loaner car for a few days, but a couple loaners hadn't returned on schedule, so they didn't have one to give me. Instead, they offered to stay after hours to work on my car, and drive my son and I to the park, while they expedited the work. They called to give me updates, let me choose how much work they did quoting the pricing upfront first, so I could decide if it was in my budget, and then picked us up at the park around our schedule, being sensitive to the wayward whims of a toddler.Dave. the owner, is always a joy to speak with. He remembers all our previous conversations and all past work on my car without me having to tell him, and has been very generous on numerous occasions to diagnose issues and do minor repairs on the fly, at very reasonable rates.As a single mother, I can't tell you how valuable it is to have a business in this community that is truly looking out for the greater good. I feel that this business is based on an ethical foundation that puts the quality of their work and customer safety first, and you can't put a price on that.I will never bring my car anywhere else. They stand by all the work that they do, as well as its maintenance, and if they feel they could have done better, they will often right any wrongs for a discount or include it in the original price. I have also been humbled by their bills, so I get that, but I have a car I know is 100% reliable in keeping me and my child safe, and the clear conscience that provides, as well as investing my money in a business I truly feel is enriching our community and raising the bar of customer service for mechanics everywhere, is worth every penny and more.
