Get an estimate somewhere else, then.... Come to these Guys! You Will Have No Regrets!My transmission on my Saturn SL2 started leaking really bad. Took it to a local garage and they said it was the front pump seal and quoted $1500 to repair it. I called around to several places locally finding similar prices. I then found the website for TransmissionXpress, called and spoke with Robert who was very personable. You could tell immediately he was genuinely interested in helping you out. We discussed options and for accomplishing the same work I discussed with local garages they only quoted $500. After several more conversations they had my business. Once they got into the actual work they discovered a hole in the front transmission housing that required a replacement housing. They called me, we negotiated and they were very fair on pricing. I negotiated some additional work I wanted done since the car was being dismantled making the work easy to do for them and they were able to do it all. Nice job! Car runs great and they offered to pay for half the towing since I live in Shoreline and they are in Burien. Keep up the great work!

Dr. Bosher is simply the best of the best! There is not enough room here to list the incredible things he has done for my family. When my small child had defective enamel and another dentist doubted his six-year molars could even be saved, Dr. Bosher implemented a "temporary" solution that has held for over seven years, and is likely to last until the teeth are old enough to be crowned. The same child was misdiagnosed by an orthodontist. Dr. Bosher procured us a second opinion that saved him years of painful, expensive, and unnecessary treatment. Another child broke a tooth in an accident and was told a crown was its only hope. Dr. Bosher saved the tooth with a difficult filling that other dentists would not attempt. And he has provided excellent care for me through several crowns, root canals, and other major dental work. His techology is state of the art, his knowledge is cutting edge, his staff are friendly and compassionate, and his technique is brilliant. As long as he is in practice, I will never go anywhere else.

"I wanted to write a quick note to once again say thank you for your fabulous customer service,After the backup problems in the bathtubs, unbeknownst to us you came back out and camera-snaked all the way out(about 140 feet) to under the street and found roots growing in old terracotta clay pipe. You then called me with yourfindings, which I reported to the City. After speaking with the City, they requested that you call them to confirm yourfindings (they wouldn't take my word for it - imagine that). According to the City, not all plumbers are willing to put theirlicense on the line by going on record with the City. You didn't hesitate to call them, and you even spoke to the Cityworker who went out to the site (George).As a result of your actions, I just found out from the City that they have called out a mark up and plan to make the repairssometime early next week. I about fell off my chair. Can I just say Wooohooo!!! Thank you so much.Everyone we've worked your commitment to customer service shines through."

Lake City Auto Care
I ALWAYS have my vehicles serviced at Lake City Auto Care! I have been taking my cars here for years and am extremely satisfied with the customer service, prices, quality of work, professionalism, and communication. I am a single mother and have had MANY difficulties in the past with an issue of dishonesty when dealing with mechanics. From the very first time I had worked performed at Lake City Auto Care, I was always treated fairly and that is why I continue to take my business there. I have even had them rebuild an engine for me and when I was ready to sell that car, they offered to talk to any perspective buyer with questions. This was above and over the call of duty!!

It is tough to find a good shop in the Seattle area, so I am glad I found this shop online. They had great reviews so I decided to give them a shot, it was evident as soon as I got there. Great customer service... Issues were diagnosed quickly and they let you know various options before getting your transmission fixed. I even received pictures of my damaged parts which is unheard of. They communicated very well with me and my quote price never changed. I will definitely be a repeat customer bc they gained my trust. These guys are such professionals they got the job done fast and right. I'm glad there are still honest shops out there.

Great place!!!! They did an amazingly quick job on my transmission. I had spent over $1000 dollars at Sound Ford in Renton and ended up with a worse situation then I started with. I saw their ad online and because my budget was low I decided to give it a go. They rebuilt my tranny and gave me a warranty. The job was done a day earlier then quoted. My only complaint was it didn't look like they used paper car mats on my floor. But all in all my car runs smoothly, it was fast and WAY cheaper than anywhere else. THANKS GUYS!!! I would us this shop again in the future if I have any problems with other cars.

I was very lucky to get Cinderella for my daughter's 5th birthday party in such short notice. They had two available and Kim is the one who came. It was my daughter's dream come true. Cinderella included all of the children and made them feel very special. She acted just like the princess's at Disney World and Disney Land. No doubt in those little girl's minds that she was the real deal. Very prompt, professional, and entertaining with stories, face painting, balloon twisting, and pictures with her as well. Well worth the money spent.

Extremely friendly and helpful. I have an oddball car and parts are hard to find. While they did not have the part in stock and I needed it immediately, they were extremely helpful and checked several times to make sure there was no faster way to get it. They had other parts for my car, and if I ever need to get any parts for it again, I am checking with them first even though it is several miles out of my way. Great guys.

Montana! He is the man to talk to there! He exceeded all our expectations with his excellent communication, attention to detail and honesty. Our transmission was fixed quickly and for less than we were quoted elsewhere. It's never fun to drop that kind of money for car repairs but working with a quality person like him made all the difference. I would refer everyone to him and the crew there!

Excellent customer service. I brought my 08 Dodge Caravan in, not sure what was wrong with it and they were so thorough and professional. Even after I decided my vehicle wasn't worth fixing, they were still helpful in getting me a rental car and towing my car away. I wish I would've found them sooner. Definitely would recommend them and will go there in the future.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
