If you are looking for above average attention to detail, professionalism, and quality, then Car Tender is the shop for you. I have worked with Car Tender on numerous occasions for tires installs and vehicle alignments. I have to say that the entire team is more than committed to giving their clients a stress-free service experience.
THANK GOD! I found these guys!I do not drive a high end car, in fact it is a Honda Civic, stalled out a few blocks away from Car Tender, they were able to get me in, diagnose, and offer me an affordable solution, my actual price came in below the estimate given, and the car was ready on time. Woo Hoo! I would recommend the folks at Car Tender. Thank you for helping me get back on the road.
When I moved to Seattle a few years ago, a friend recommended Car Tender when I needed my car to be checked out. I've since had to go back for routine work, and have received amazing service each and every time. I know nothing about cars, but the guys there carefully explain everything they're saying, and what I need to have done now vs later, and what I should expect to pay. While I was at work one day my car needed some TLC, I had my buddy (big car guy) take my car there to have it looked at. The fact that he was equally as impressed with their work and he knows what he's talking about confirmed that they really do a great, honest job. I've since recommended many friends to have their cars taken care of by Car Tender, and I haven't heard any complaints from them.
I've been a customer through my last 4 cars, from BMW to VW to Land Rover. They have always taken excellent care of my cars and of me. I've called numerous times on my way in to work and they have fit me in. They do good work and seem to be fair with what they recommend and charge. I've sent many friends there as I know that you get good service and they wont steer you wrong.
I've been taking my 1997 BMW 328is to Car Tender since 2004. Before Car Tender I was always leery of mechanics because I've had many treat me as an idiot, over charged and talked down to me (as a woman). Car Tender has NEVER done any of that to me and always takes the time to discuss any issues or concerns I might have with my car.I've always been highly pleased with the service and quality provided by Car Tender and want to recommend them with 5 stars. If you want honest, reliable service, trust these guys with your vehicles.For those negative commenters I ask, have you ever seen any of the guys standing around or their lot empty? There is NO way that a mechanic would stay in business (and such high demand) if they aren't as consistently good as these guys. People trust their classics to these guys to repair so I think my 1997 is in more than capable hands!
This place is great. I've had my 1986 325 repaired there, and they even called a week later to see how it was doing. When I was in an accident they were very helpful with insurance, etc, and even offered to take it to the body repair shop when they were done, since I was out of town. All the employees there have been very patient, helpful, and informative. I've always dreaded car repairs, and been intimidated by the process, but I feel very comfortable with the people at Car Tender and would recommend it to anyone.
If you want your BMW or Mercedes repaired by some truly good mechanics that know what they're working on, these are the guys to bring it to. They are good at what they do. Two of the three owners were the foremen at BMW Seattle a long time ago, when the dealer was independently owned. They have seen and dealt with many car issues. That's a big plus. They can make good educated guesses after looking at some things under the hood as to where a problem may be for complex issues. As cars become more and more controlled by electronics, a mechanic that understands the mechanics and the electronics of the car is gold.They're expensive. If you have something simple like an oil change, spark plug replacement, or coolant flush, learn to do it yourself. It's easy, and you'll save a lot of money which can roll back into a repair you'll truly need these guys to work on. The mark of a good mechanic is one that minimizes any come backs for issues related to the original breakdown.Mitigating their high labor rate is their experience and their ethics. These guys are honest, and tell it like it is. Use them when you have a real repair you need to have done on your car. This is how you'll get value for your car repair dollar.
Ok, so these folks make buying a Mercerdes Benz (one of the biggest mistakes of my life because it is so expensive to fix) a lot easier to reconcile with. Why? They are honest, not nearly as expensive as a dealership would be, are quick to fix it, and they are some of the nicest guys on the planet. Ask for Patrick, he is the nicest.
This a solid mechanic shop.You will get what you pay for in a solid luxury car independent shop. If it isn't right, I know that these guys will make it right and care about their profession, service, and reputation. Sound good? It is. A pleasure bringing my old Mercedes here for several years . Thanks Car Tender.
I moved here from california a couple years ago. I brought in my 98 bimmer 540. I am really particular about the car. It has 139m miles, but still runs strong. I brought it in for a front end alignment, set $350. They told me I needed new tie rod ends and my bill would be more like 1350, not happy. However, i have taken my car to several bimmer dealers asking them to find a front end problem, not handling good enough.Sure enough when i got the car back, it ran better than when i bought it in 2002. They are little pricy , however, they were the only ones to found the problem and fixed it. Gotta give em props!
