He's a wonderful mechanic! Julie, who answers the phones, and knows at least as much as Dave, is Dave's wife. They are honest, competent, helpful and informative. They explain things in an accessible way.

I had Dave check out an '85 van that I was interested in buying. He took the time to point out the things that needed repairing and he also discovered that there was a worn gasket in the exhuast system he fixed it off the clock and charge the owner for the part only which stopped the rattling. I ended up buying the van and had the work he recomened done. It was done in a timely manor and the van has been doing great. Dave was recomened to me buy my room-mate and I later found out that Dave also has done some work for my sisters starving musician friend. It a whole in the wall shop with a big friendly footwarming dog wyatt and julie and the birds are great too.

"My Mechanic" is located off of Aurora and 96th in with about ten other car shops. When I went in for an oil change, Dave told me I really needed a front brake job. He fit it into a really busy schedule the next week since I was on the road. My brother and his wife go there and went because of their rave reviews. BTW, Wyatt is a great dog! And what's with the gender question? Why isn't there also a simple "yes" or "no" option?

Short answer: Dave's the best. Longer answer: Dave takes his work very seriously. He is highly intelligent and draws upon an extraordinary fund of knowledge and experience to not only repair vehicles, but to educate interested clients. Dave is utterly trustworthy. He will not cut corners, nor will he invent repairs or overcharge for parts. I earn my living as a courier and have brought my vehicles to Dave over the past 8 years. As long as I live within 50 miles of My Mechanic Automotive, I'll bring my car to Dave.

Dave's been a great mechanic for my vehicles for the last 6 years. I'm moving and sad to be leaving such an invaluable resource behind in Seattle. Things that stand out: 1. Numerous times when a funny noise has started and Dave has said: "Just bring it in some time today and we'll have a look." 2. Often completes work hours before I expect the car to be ready. 3. Once, when a slight knocking started in the near the front right wheel: Dave told me to bring it in. I stopped in that Saturday afternoon on the way to a bake sale. He looked at it, tightened a couple screws, fixed the knocking, and charged me 2 cookies.

I took my car in for 60k mile service. They explained that they replace only what is worn out rather than a predefined set of items; consequently, the service cost only $160, where the dealer quoted me $600. Additionally, they were friendly and professional.

Dave is a great guy. He does honest work and will make sure that you understand what the problem with the car is. He will explain the problem or take you to the car and show you the problem. He is very thorough. They are also great about working with their customers schedules. His prices are also very reasonable. I highly recommend this mechanic!!!

I have had bad experiences in the past but was really happy with Dave, it took a little longer because it is a small shop, but the repair was done right and was very affordable. Dave takes the time to explain the repairs and options as well.
