This shop has the friendliest staff! Took my car in for a pre trip inspection and from start to finish the customer service was excellent. My car ran perfectly on my road trip down the Oregon coast and to California. Thanks guys!

I am not from Seattle but I brought a car I purchased in the area to them to get looked at before starting a long road trip home. They were incredibly accommodating to my complicated schedule and uncertain timeline, were incredibly kind and helpful with identifying issues on the car and were fantastic to work with on every level. Rob is who I mainly dealt with, and he was truly the kindest and most helpful mechanic I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Knowing full-well I will not ever be returning as a client since I'm from out of town, he went above and beyond to accommodate my needs. Josh, the mechanic who looked over my car, was also great - knowledgeable, friendly and super helpful - he's also clearly a good mechanic, as he guessed the code for the check engine light the car had before inspecting the car, and it's not even a code that shows a symptom (emissions related, totally pointless system that effects nothing). All around an incredible experience, and it continues to be, as several days later after already being home all the way in eastern Canada, I gave Rob a call to ask him some questions about the car and again, he was as helpful and kind as anyone could possibly be. It really makes me sad that I won't be able to be a long-term client of theirs. If you need a BMW (or any car for that matter) worked on, I can say with confidence that Car Tender will treat you well, do good work and destroy the stereotype mechanics have of rude or dishonest. Truly, they are top-notch at customer service and their trade.

I’ve had my 1980 450 SL serviced by several different shops in the PNW. David at Car Tender is by far the most knowledgeable and skilled technician I’ve worked with by a long shot. Rob was on point was the service communications, both emails and text. Great experience, plan of doing more with the CT team.

I found the service here for a simple oil change to be outstanding!!! And they followed up with more service on a tiny issue. Friendly, and above the norm …. I have already told several friends to go there and won’t stop doing that. Paolo is GREAT !!!

The guys at Car Tender take great care of my car. I recently bought a used Mini and almost immediately got a check engine light on it. They inspected the vehicle and determined it had a failed environmental air catalyst sensor, which meant that not only did the sensor need to be replaced but also the radiator ( it's in the middle of the radiator). Paolo at Car Tender knew that this car had an extended warranty that covered this defect, and he immediately called the Mini dealership and made arrangements for me to take my car in to the dealership to be fixed. The dealership made the repairs without charge. Car Tender goes out of its way to take care of its customers. They are good people.

My experience with Car Tender was nothing short of phenomenal. From our very first communication, I could tell that the folks at Car Tender were special and thoroughly enjoyed the work they do in helping customers keep their cars on the road, in my case, a 1980s Mercedes W123. Rob at Car Tender was my associate, but everyone at the shop welcomed me with open arms, explained to me in detail what they would be doing with my car, and provided some of the best documentation and follow-up that I have ever seen in the car industry. Thank you so much, Car Tender team. Although in most cases you don't want to see your mechanic too often, I look forward to stopping in again in the near future. Best regards, Shad.

If you wish to save your money, I would advise against visiting this establishment. Their prices are higher than those of dealerships. My Mercedes' air conditioning stopped functioning, so I took it to the Mercedes dealership where I received an estimate of $2105.21. Since this seemed high, I decided to seek a second opinion from Car Tender. Although I provided the estimate given by the dealership, they insisted on creating their own by Rob as they were unsure of the experience level of the dealership technician, and if the work outlined in the estimate was followed exactly yet failed to solve the issue, it would create an awkward situation. At the time, I understood this logic. Rob from Car Tender then informed me that "Our Mercedes expert has 40 years of experience." Only later did I realize this likely meant he was expensive. After dropping off my vehicle in the morning, Car Tender called to say that repairing the AC would cost around $750. Despite my initial doubts about bringing my car here but it seemed like I made the right choice and I generally support local businesses. However, this turned out to be a mistake. Several hours later, I received a text from Car Tender stating that the repair would actually cost around $3000 and take 4-5 days. The new estimate sent by Car Tender was identical to the dealership's estimate but $800+ higher, despite the fact that the issue with the AC was the same as identified by the dealership, and I had even provided the dealership's estimate. Apparently, the higher cost is due to their Mercedes technician having more experience than the dealership technician. When I asked why the costs differed so greatly despite the issues being the same, and even though the dealership service person explained the necessary work in person which aligned with Car Tender's assessment, they replied that the estimates do not match line by line. I then expressed my desire to work with them and offered to obtain an exactly matching estimate from the dealership. In response, the service person essentially told me that there was nothing they could do, and that I should pay the invoice (around $500) and leave. If you want to hold onto your hard-earned money, I strongly advise against using this business.
