Great people, awesome service, positivity and service with a smile not seen anywhere else in the Seattle area! This is truly a great shop.

I have been going to All Wheel Drive Auto for a little over a year now for parts for my Subaru. I am an apprentice mechanic at a large dealership and no other parts or service business has made me feel more welcomed and a true part of the Subaru community than these guys have.

I like going in to pick up an oil filter and sometimes wait behind the customer before me for a brief moment. I enjoy the way customers that come in for service get accurate and in depth explanations and details about their car and the repairs made to it.

WOW! Two weeks after buying a 1999 OBW last fall I was cursed with an "over-heating" Subaru :( For another month I called every radiator shop within driving distance, and honestly didn't feel confident in taking my car to a shop and forking over large sums of money, not knowing if me and car were going to get the proper care we needed. I then stumbeld upon the All Wheel Drive Auto Independent Subaru Repair website, and instantly knew after browsing for a few minutes that these guys KNOW Subarus...AND customers!! I called and spoke to Justin who gave me a fair estimate and we made an appointment for an inspection. Upon the inspection Justin, Ken, and one the techs had discovered a number of VERY important issues that purtained to my most critical concern, SAFETY. They didn't just tell me and leave me to wait in the lobby...they brought me into the shop, under the car, and pointed out potential dangers with flashlights and explanations. It's been one year since the guys replaced my head gasket, and since, they've also replaced all four brakes, a CV-boot, and a number of freebies (as well as a suggestion to replace my tires, which I've done). I also have them change my oil. This may not seem as important, but after getting my oil changed at Jiffy Lube and similar "Fast-Lube" shops, who are ALWAYS trying to up sell me on something that I don't know if I need and they can't seem to explain WHY? I need it other than that my car has 130.000 miles (I'm talking maintenance jobs over $100); or knowing if they really are changing my oil . So, if I ever need anything repaired, whether it be my car, my plumbing, or a broken neck, I'm leaving that to the experts. From my own experience, when it comes to my Subaru, these guys ARE the experts! My car runs and drives like a 2009 model, THANK YOU! Not only do I know that my vehicle runs great, I know how, and why, it wasn't. Thank you again guys, for professionally reparing and properly teaching me about what I depend Subaru. Not to mention they even paid for my loaner car...

These are the experts that you want working on your car! They will make sure that you are satisfied and happy with the service and repair that you receive. I have never given any recommendations online but feel it is necessary for the type of work that AWD performs. A+ all around!
