This is an old-school auto shop. There's a smell of grease and oil is in the air whenever you go into the shop. I don't recall ever seeing any hydrolic lifts, just lots of jack stands. I found this shop by acciedent when my MPV threw a fan belt on the Alaskan Way Viaduct. The were the closest shop that was open and worked on Mazdas. I wasn't expecting much just a someplace to have the car towed to and get fixed. They were very nice and did good work. When the belt failed seven or eight months later, they replace it for no charge. After I became disenchanted with my local mechanic, I started taking my car to Emerald City to be serviced and repaired. They've always listened to my expliantions of the cars problems. They've never talk down or over me or my wife. They've always explained what they've done, what should be done, and what repairs can be put off. They've stay open late so that I can pick my car. Their shop is a stone's throw or two east of Safeco Field. That's good, there are a lot bus options (the bus tunnel corridor is only a block away). But, that's also my only knock, it's in that light industrial area along 4th Ave S. I've never felt unsafe, but I don't think I'd want to hang out there overnight. All in all, they are one of the best auto shops that I've ever taken a car to.

What a great place to visit just like going back in time or taking a trip down memory lane! The 50s service station and automotive museum decor and old fashion service can not be beat it reminds you of the good old days when the customer really matters and the customer & service were number one. Car was done on time and at a fair price I have already told a few coworkers and they have all come back and thanked me for the great tip on a shop they can trust. Being a female that is very important to be able to trust them. You can't go wrong with the guys and gals at Emerald City Auto Repair.
