My 1980 Datsun 510 may have lasted another ten years, if someone hadn't rear-ended me. Dang. (Can I say "Dang?") JR doesn't do body work. J R kept me informed of what work I'd need done, and when. I don't recall any suprises in the fifteen years he maintained my car. I replaced my car with a Taurus. J R doesn't do domestic. So now that I no longer need to worry that my recommendation may make him harder to schedule with, I must give him my highest endorsement.

JR is a great mechanic - he knows his stuff especially on VWs and Audis, and takes the time to explain what's wrong. Highly recommended.

JR is a great mechanic - I kept may Audi a long time simply because he knew how to look after it. It's hard to find an honest mechanic, but JR is one.

JR is an automotive god. I am actually glad that the warranty on my new car is over so i can go back to him instead of the dealership. Kind of sick, isn't it!

I have had the privelege of knowing and trusting the owner and chief mechanic J.R. North for many years now and followed him from his Capitol Hill location to his service center now at 83rd and Aurora in N. Seattle.His honesty and expertise for all of mine, and friends and family vehicles,has truly been a blessing for us.He has never once sold us or recommended a part or problem that was unnesasary.Do yourself a favor and take your car to J.R.for an estimate after you have seen the dealer,talked to strangers and given guesswork all over town.You may become City Motors faithful and never stray again elsewhere.Thanks BIGTIME J.R.!!!!!!! Roger OBrien and family.
