Second time I have taken my VW Jetta to Yakima Automotive for different engine issues and they were able to get the car in the shop and fixed on short notice. I live in Tri Cities about an hour away from Yakima and I'd rather make that drive to have the guys at Yakima Automotive work on it than anyone in Tri Cities. Great crew, 10/10 would recommend.

Requested repair work was completed satisfactorily and at a fair price. Extra charges were made however, for work completed but not requested or approved (light bulb), and for "shop supplies".

by - Verified Customer March 22, 2015

Friendly, prompt service that is always reliable.
