Mechanic's Pride Tire & Automotive Inc.
We have been customers of Mechanics Pride for a few years, with two different cars. Recently we had an oil change on our newer car right before moving to Oregon. Unfortunately, a new mechanic had replaced the oil filter with the wrong one. After a week or so of unknowingly driving with rapidly draining oil, the engine seized up. We were told by a local mechanic that we needed a new engine, but to contact Mechanics Pride to ask about the oil filter, because it was just barely hanging on by a thread. After Mike looked into it, he discovered the error, acknowledged the mistake, and took every step necessary to get us a new engine and a rental car while we waited for the repairs. We were blown away by the honesty and responsibility shown by Mechanics Pride. While it was unfortunate that this had happened, my wife and I are still highly satisfied by their work. All other repairs and maintenance they have performed have been exemplary. I would recommend them to anyone needing repairs and maintenance in Spokane.

Flash's Auto Body & Paint
I was recently was t-boned in a car accident and had to replace my car door with an old used one from Spalding. The door I found was the wrong color so I needed to find a place to have it painted. I’m sooooo happy I took it to Ryan at Flash’s Auto. The color match turned out absolutely gorgeous! The paintjob was flawless! Incredibly, my door looks brand new again; you would never be able to tell that it wasn’t my original car door. I am so impressed with their hard work and their awesome customer service! I had to write a review, because I know there are people out there looking and not sure where to go. I highly recommend Flash’s Auto to anyone in need. These guys are honest, fair, do amazing work and their prices are so reasonable. As soon as I talked to Ryan it was a done deal. I am so happy with the outcome and very thankful I put my trust in these guys. This is a great place, take your business here, you will not be disappointed! I’m a very happy customer:)

Andy's Auto Repair
Wow - Andy's our hero! Our car broke down driving from Seattle to Spokane on our way to my mom's memorial service late on Friday afternoon. AAA called Andy's after a few others who were closing for the weekend, and he said he "might" be able to get to it Saturday after 3 other jobs in front of ours. We got the car towed there late Friday, and took him the keys Sat. AM. Saturday mid-afternoon I got a call from Andy that not only did he determine it was definitely the fuel pump, but he was pretty sure he could fix it that day. I'm sure partly due to my circumstances and some compassion on his part, he stayed over 2 hours past closing to make sure our car was fixed!! We've now arrived back home with no problems, and have a hard working, honest & reliable mechanic to refer our friends & acquaintances to in the future.

Rob's Automotive Repair
Rob and his guys are skilled mechanics! I've been taking my family's vehicles ('09 Escalade, '08 Malibu, '05 STS, '95 F250) to him since I stumbled upon his shop when I moved to town in 2012.The biggest reason I go back to Rob for every repair I can't do on my own is his honesty and integrity! If other shops have said that something's going to leave you stranded if you don't pay $$$$ today, Rob will be a breath of fresh air. He will tell you how long something will last and what your risks of delaying repair will be - and won't lie! AMAZING!I've never had a problem with the work he's done and the costs are BETTER than reasonable! If you're really needing to save money on a repair, talk to him first and see what options you have!This is the only shop that I won't hesitate to send friends and family to.

Arrow Auto Repair
I was extremely satisfied by them being upfront and honest, and by working in a very timely manner. I took my Dodge Dakota Sport here because it was having idling problems that I suspected were caused by sensors. It was throwing 2 different codes and Arrow Auto Repair was able to determine which one was the source and after replacing the crankshaft sensor cleared both problems. They also showed me other problems that I would eventually need to address but weren't pushy about fixing it, which is what I have experienced from my dealerships and auto repair shops. I will definitely come back here if I need anymore work on my pickup.

I chose this place to get new brakes after getting several quotes in the Spokane area. Meineke tried to charge me for unnecessary calipers and seals, but the gentlemen at Mechanics Pride were reasonable and honest. While I was waiting, I encountered one customer who has been going to this shop since its opening 25 years ago! Also, there was a young woman who came in with donuts to thank the workers for giving her a free diagnostic when she was in a bind. Great place, locally owned, and I plan to go back.

Auto Doctors Tire & Automotive
Wonderful staff and fast service. I recently moved to the area and was looking for a small garage for regular work on my older sedan. The owner of Auto Doctors was polite and dealt with me honestly. I found his pricing to be very fair and the waiting room to be clean and comfortable. So far I am extremely pleased with the service I have received, which was a series of fluid flushes. I highly recommended Auto Doctors on Mission St., to anyone who wants quality work done on their vehicle.-EK

Auto Doctors Tire & Automotive
They did a fantastic job on my car! I took it to two other shops for estimates on tires, brakes, and several other tings my car needed. The owner Skie gave me an easy to understand evaluation of what my car needed, (without treating me like a stupid girl), the cost to fix it, and options on the repairs. AND THE PRICE! He beat the other guys by almost $300! Its safe to say I found a diamond in the rough!Thanks Auto Doctors! I WILL be back.Claire

Dr. Detail Spokane
Ryan and his team did a tremendous job with their interior and exterior detail. I purchased a gift certificate for my dad for Father's Day and needless to say, I couldn't have purchased him a better gift. They were very careful and paid great attention to detail with their work. I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job. They're pleasant and responsible, easy to coordinate with and come with my highest recommendation!

Motor Works
I was in a pinch to get back on the road again and Motorworks and their staff we're very helpful prompt and understanding they got me back on the road and three days and not a problem since. matter of fact they insisted when I return to town but they change the oil and give it a once-over I'd recommend them to anyone
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
