What Clients Say About 212th Automotive

Grant T.
212th has always been my go to auto shop. The staff are very proffessional and Jayson is a top notch mechanic that is always willing to give his honest advice. Best auto shop around!

I came back from a trip to find my car dead in the parking lot in SeaTac. A friend recommended 212th Automotive to me, and I called and spoke to CJ, who was wonderful on the phone and even more of a delight in person. Jayson looked at my car and got me back on the road by the afternoon at a reasonable price and with a full disclosure of the problem and a couple of other things he'd found while fixing it. Super nice people with great timing and fantastic customer service - I'll bring my high-mileage Honda back for future service for sure! Highly recommended.

A co worker of mine husband passed away recently and at the same time, started having car problems. We all work fairly close to 212 automotive and I over heard her saying she was taking her car there. We stared a donation to help for the cost of repair and when I stopped by to pay, the shop would not accept it, saying they took care of it! I can not speak to the quality of mechanics there only to the quality of people....AMAZING! thank you and God bless 212th automotive!

We really lucked out when we found Jayson! It is hard to find a mechanic that you trust these days. He is the ONLY one we take our vehicles to. Thank you Jayson!!!! I have his business cards in my wallet for friends who need a GREAT Mechanic!!!

PHENOMENAL! No Frills, just good old fashioned mechanics going on! My husband and I have taken our vehicles there on several occasions. The owner performs good work, going above and beyond - even fixing a few minor things that we were bothered by... but honestly, too cheap to ask to be repaired. I guess they bothered him too because he repaired them at very little cost and we were very happy to have them working again. What a nice surprise! It's not a fancy showroom/waiting room, it's a REAL mechanics shop, run by the owner. Pretty neat.

C.J and Jayson are great! They really helped me out and my car with all of the miles on it is running better than ever! As far as price goes I would say they are better than average. I don't know too much about cars but my co-worker said they gave me a pretty good price. I believe I have found my new mechanic. Thanks guys truly! I only need this car for a little more than a year and I have great confidence you will keep me on the road.

I'm not sure if I wanted to write this review because I want to keep them available to myself. BUT this business truly deserves the 5 stars. Their customer service phone skills are exceptional and they are very accommodating. Unfortunately I had two business vans break down back to back but they assure me they can order the part and get one of my van going by next week. I couldn't thank them enough. Moving forward they will be my go to automotive!!!
Jane J.
I was referred to Jason by another reputable mechanic (due to the mechanic not being able to perform an overall inspection for a newly purchased box van). Jason and C.J. are awesome. Great follow up with C.J. and she is the sweetest. I'm all about customer service without having to compromise the cost to pay for that service. If ever I'm in need of their service, I will definitely be back.
Brittney W.
Excellent service every time I go! I would recommend to anyone needing a car serviced. The owner sees you personally before or after work has been performed (sometimes both)! Very helpful because he will take the time to explain why he is recommending the work to be done - he has NEVER had me pay for "extra" things to jack up the total bill. Unfortunately, that happens too often to females when they take in their vehicles for service. I will not go anywhere else.

Took my car in to check for a oil leak, turned out to be only a loose oil filter which they fixed for free, not only that but they kindly rinsed off the oil under my car. Very honest crew here, they did not even charge me for the fix. After going to to a couple different shops ALL who wanted to charge me for repairs that had nothing to do with the oil leak. Think I found my new main mechanics. Highly recommend this shop, been to many in the area and this one is the real deal. Super nice front desk woman who was very professional and polite. Thanks 212th Automotive for fixing my bird.

The owner, operator Jayson was not only under the weather but short staffed. He squeezed me in same day and didn't gouge me with crazy made up costs. I love how he showed me the part that was damaged and got me in and out as quick as he possibly could! The old brick and dirt in that building was sending me warning signals but again the owner made me feel at ease and didn't BS me. Thanks again guys at 212th Automotive!
Ben M.
I had great service at this mechanic on two separate occasions. There seems to be good communication and coodination between the office staff and technical mechanics. Overall good experience and my truck runs as it should now. A good honest mechanic is a hard thing to find, I found one here.
Jackie M.
This place is great! The mechanic was quick, honest and to the point. He told us what was urgent to fix and what could wait. Prices are very reasonable! The front desk clerk was super friendly and easy to work with. This will be our new go to place for our work and personal vehicles!
Christen R.
Can't say enough about this shop! This was the second time we had taken our Tahoe for service to this shop but this time we really needed help. After making the mistake taking it elsewhere first thinking we might get it done quicker and then getting crappy service and being told it would take a week and a half to fix, we decided to not have them do our work and instead dropped it off with Jayson at 212th Automotive. Long story short.... he had it fixed and back to us in less than 48 hrs! He stands behind his work and does an amazing job. Selena in the office is also great and has great communication when it comes to keeping you informed about the status of the repairs. Next time I will make sure to go here first and not waste my time and money elsewhere. Thanks again for A++ service!

I will be honest, I was a bit nervous having never dealt with them before, however they exceeded all my expectations. I had my timing chain, tensioner, air conditioning and water pump replaced. I compared prices and they were slightly less than the others. Jayson (owner) & Selena were very professional and helpful. I was even allowed to go in the shop to see the progress. The best part of the experience was not 10 minutes after I had paid my bill, I went to a local restaurant to get lunch. I locked my keys in the car. I called Jayson figuring he had all the tools necessary. He drove to the restaurant and got me in. Now that's some serious customer service.
Thanks Jayson!

These people are AWESOME!!!!! our car broke down on Easter and on recommendation of a family friend we had it towed to 212 Automotive in Kent. From the moment we got the car to them they were thorough and informative. The office manager (Dena) looked up a bunch of information in regards to our car, engine and kept us informed of what had gone wrong. Dena and Jayson (Owner) discussed our options and were patient, friendly and informative. Jayson took the time to answer ALL of my questions about what would be the best route to go on finding a new car. They are so reasonably priced and even letting us keep our car there for a few days while we figure out what to do with it at no charge. If you are in need of a REAL mechanic who talks to you and make you feel comfortable this is your place! Highly recommend!
