My car was making a horrible sound and none of the fix lights was on so I couldn't figure it out. So I took it here and they figure it out right away and fixed it and my car is amazingly sound proof of that horrible noise. Thank you for fixing that for me.

Since I bought my used car I haven't had any A/C. It was my birthday, so I just thought I should give myself a gift by fixing my A/C. I went to British Auto Center where I've been going for several years now, because I know it is affordable and the guys are super helpful and professional. I never had no complaints always happy and was very happy with my A/C they installed. Thanks again British Auto Center!

I came here looking for a specific auto part for one of my cars. I called around a few places in the area and no one had it and I was starting to get desperate! Luckily I found British Auto Center and they had the exact part I needed. They were extremely helpful over the phone and even more friendly when I came in. I'd absolutely recommend them again!

I have taken our cars to the British Auto Center for a number of years now. The front office and techs do excellent, reliable, expert work. They are very honest and never do work that is not absolutely necessary at a fair price. I Would recommend them to anyone.

Took my older Jag to British Auto Center for some minor maintenance and upkeep. I was quoted a fair price and and a reasonable time frame for repairs. Glad to have found them to keep my Jag in shape as she gets older.

Over inflated prices. Terrible service. Stay away from this shop.
Awful customer service.
I would give negative stars if this site allowed them!

I called for an estimate on a simple oil change and they quoted me a cost twice as much as any other shop I've ever heard of. The labor costs are unrealistic.

British Auto Center is great, I've come here over the last two years several times and they are always able to explain to me what's wrong with my Land Rover and I never feel like their prices are over inflated. I always feel like their first concern is my safety, which is why I bring my car in to get looked over before a road trip.

Best place around for Jaguar service and repair, no question. They're great mechanics ... not just part changers and they really make it worthwhile owning and maintaining a Jaguar in the Seattle area. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending British Auto center for taking care of your Jag.

After going to other local shops I realized that I am spending more due to the sub standard skills available there. The mechanics at British Auto Center are great and yes the price of the bill is reasonable. I go there once and my problems are fixed.

British Auto Center was really there for me when I needed work done on my Jag while I was in town for a job interview. I do not trust many people with my car but these guys definitely proved to me I could. They are very professional and really care about their customers!

I went to British auto center and they were great. My Jag steering wheel was shaking when I hit high speeds and when I explained that to the guys they knew exactly what to do! My car was fixed and I was back on the road in no time at all. They were very professional and the prices were wonderful!

I took my Land Rover for some work. They were fast, thorough, and their price was what they quoted me before doing the work. They walked me through all the steps, showed me all the work and pieces his team replaced. Have taken our other car there for inspection and brake work as well. Same great experience.

I came to British Auto Center to get minor car repair on my Jaguar. I went to the dealership first and they wanted way to much so I gave this place a call. There estimate was almost half the cost and the work done was really great. This is my new auto shop.

So I was having electrical problems with my car, it would die on me start goofy and generally give me a hard time. I went to British Auto and they took a listen to me describe the problem and this helped me diagnose it. In the end it turning out to be just a loose ground cable coming off of my battery. I need a new nut to secure it they gave me one and it was installed they ran the diagnostic again. It was fixed. They just wanted to make sure I was getting the right solution for my problem and with his excellent customer service skills he did just that. In conclusion I wanted to ass, my Dad was a mechanic and I worked at his garage as a kid so let's just say for me to give a five star rating someone has to be excellent and British Auto definitely is.

I went to British Auto Center today to have them put on a new grill on my Jaguar, not only did they do the job quick but it was also on carefully. They also installed HID's for my headlights and fogs. The people at the British Auto Center will be the only other set of hand that touch my car other than the dealer. This is truly a great shop with awesome people running the front and the back flawlessly. And believe it or not, their prices are great. my only gripe is that they didn't let me buy them lunch.

This place has the most unbelievable customer service. I stopped by on my way home from work to see if they had wiper blades and they has great PIAA blades. Then they just helped me out with some other problems that I was having with my Beemer and gave me the best service. This place is organized and has employees that really care and want to take great care of you. I will definitely send everyone I know over her. Thanks Guys!!

So my Land Rover was starting to give me a hard time starting. I figured it was the battery or alternator, but when I talked to mechanic he inspected my car and quickly realized that the problem was my starter. Anyway It took no more than two hours to have my car looked at and have the starter replaced. Not only was I satisfied with the service, I'll definitely be back here, not for my starter of course.

Steve is a fantastic and very fair mechanic. Land Rovers are high maintenance vehicles and if you own one, you should bring it to British Auto Center Ltd. They has been very fair and understanding regarding my repairs. I own a 2000 Discovery II and have had a lot of work done by British Auto Center Ltd. Never had any complaints of the quality of their work at all. All work has been guaranteed and has been flawless. They know their Land Rovers there to be sure. If you own one of these cars, YOU WILL need repairs. Bring it here and you won't be disappointed. Very reasonable rates, very knowledgeable staff. Fast and very friendly service.

I have a love / hate relationship with my Mini Cooper. I just had my rear shocks replaced (a leading contender for the "least fun way to spend $600 award) and they took such care of me. I got a ride to my office and when it turned out they needed more time, I knew that it was a fair price and reliable work.

My Jag is my most prized possession. Whenever I hear the slightest noise, feel the slightest pull or feel like I've lost some power, I drop everything and take her to British Auto Center. They get her in and out quickly and always address my concerns thoroughly.

I trust British Auto Center to fix my wife's Range Rover whenever we have problems with it. This is the vehicle we primarily use to transport our kids and I feel good knowing that British has taken care of any problems the Range might have.
