Sam and his crew have expertly repaired and maintained three automobiles for me over the past twelve years. I know little about cars, but spend a great deal of my time commuting in one. Safety is my highest priorty as it has been his. He and his team have been been there during times of need. His team has seen me through flat tires, trade ins, and used car purchases. He is always willing to lend a guiding hand.

I moved to Seattle in 2003, but Old Time Garage was the garage that took care of my car (Toyota Corolla in the first 3 years and Honda Accord for last 7 years) from 1994 to 2003. I absolutely adored those guys. I missed them to this date.... They have been honest, fair and know what they are doing. Also, they are friendly and respectful!

I used to work at the hospital next door so went there for all my car needs. Now I have no reason to head that way (it's actually pretty out of the way), but still keep going to Old Time Garage because they're the best!

A phenomenal team of honest, chipper experts. They have worked on all three of my family's Toyota Camrys for years and years and have kept them running far beyond their expected years. There is no other garage in the area that we'd bring our business! A plus, it's a 30 second walk to the Woodland T stop on the Green Line (D-Riverside). Go check out these guys! They'll take good care of you and your car. Click and Clack would definitely approve!

They have a nice family feel; unfortunately, I had a bad experience with one of my foreign cars. I had a mysterious rattle for which they replaced numerous parts including a sway bar and engine mount. The rattle did not go away. After dropping a bundle at the Little Foreign Garage on this problem, I went to another garage that quickly diagnosed the problem as a loose heat shield. I paid them for 1.5 hours to diagnose, take off clean, and refit the shield, problem fixed. For another older car, they said that I'd need to replace a few seals within the next few months, to the tune of over $600. Another trusted specialist said that the seals had some wear but were not leaking and could go for a good # of additional years. They have so far.
