Richard Reed is an excellent person to deal with. He's a fine mechanic: fair, honest, extraordinarily helpful, flexible, and happy! This is one of two jobs for Richard, he's a musicial and a mechanic. He plays horn in the symphony, cuts CDs, and plays for musicals, ballets, etc. You gotta love a guy with these two vocations! He once walked to my house to get my car. He helped my friend when her car began its death dance while she was on vacation here, then he wouldn't charge her. Here's the other thing:you can get great coffee next door at Diva's if you choose to wait for your car!

Richard was delightful to deal with. He was honest about the cost of replacing the clutch in my car and called me regularly to update me on the progress. Thanks to the consumers on this website for sharing their experience in working with Richard--it made choosing the right mechanic a snap! I've been recommending his shop to all my friends.

Richard is a wonderful guy and excellent mechanic. You can tell he's honest just by talking to him briefly. He lets you know your options (quick , cheaper fix, or the big real fix). He'll even recommend other shops if they can do it better. Diva next store makes it worth the trip to West Seattle.

I have finally found an honest, intelligent mechanic who talks to me with respect and really explains the problem. He has the nicest shop I've ever seen complete with a Red- Green bobble head (holding a roll of duct tape of course). I first met Richard while playing percussion for the Nutcracker ballet. My sister has a co-worker who said, "Hey, one of the French Horn players for the ballet is my auto mechanic!" I said if that's true I'll eat my music. Tchaikovsky tastes pretty good.

RICHARD REED ROCKS! I'm a musician too, so as well as being on a budget myself I am also acquainted with a number of folks who have better uses for their money than making boat payments for auto mechanics. Everyone I've sent to Richard has made a point of thanking me afterward and continuing their relationship with him. He's actually done favors for me that bordered on embarassing when I've sent folks in dire need to him, (how's doing a transmission service on the 4th of July sound?) And this was stuff done for my friends, some of whom he'd never met previously! First and foremost though he is a kind, gentle and trustworthy person and that is something we all can appreciate and aspire to.

I especially appreciated that I could talk with him frankly about my budget.

I've had my vehicles worked on by Richard Reed, the owner operator, of Maestro Motors, and he is great. I'm a retired stage hand, and Richard is an excellent mechanic and also a great musician. All of the stage hands I know take their vehicles to Richard, and I've never heard a bad word about his work. Couldn't recommend him higher.

Richard is smart, honest, kindhearted, and straightforward. He's always clear on the options (the cheap fix versus the full fix; the ideal solution versus the fast one) and will work with you to find a solution you can afford. He's proactive about looking for stuff that might be troublesome in the future and suggesting when to deal with it. He wanted to get a close look at the brakes, thinking they'd be in bad shape, but after taking over an hour to open up the brakes he found they were fine, put it all back together. The charge was "go next door and put a few bucks on our espresso card." The shop is full of interesting stuff to look at and Diva (next door) has great scones.
