12/22/10 I've had four experiences with
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
and all outstanding. First of all --- I want to make sure folks know this is the
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
that is on the beach, on
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
Avenue, NOT the one in Georgetown. For the first experience my 86-year old mom broke down, called AAA and
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
took fabulous care of her, took her home, and charged very reasonable rates for the repair. Second --- I had a front light on my Passat this was out, went to
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
to get a new headlamp or whatever was needed. They checked it out, turns out it was a loose connection. They fixed it, NO CHARGE! Third, due to some road construction the mud flap under the front portion of my car was torn away and dragging. I limped into
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
, someone jacked up the car, took it off, disposed of it and advised me on whether or not it was important to replace. NO CHARGE! Third - most recent --- my Passat failed to start twice in about a 2 month period. The 2nd time I had AAA jump it and took to
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
to check out. They ran initial diagnosis and found that one of the electronics modules was not working. They replaced that part and did some further diagnostics.
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
(service manager) let me know that they could go no farther with their testing equipment and I would be best to take to a dealer for more diagnostic. He could have "guessed" but that might have cost me more unnecessarily.
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
worked first four years of his career with German car dealers so knows these cars well. He then spent a considerable amount of time discussing with me the "what ifs" and whether I should consider selling now. (It is a 99 but only 76,000 miles). I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED. And I look forward to going back, and takikng my mom's Ford there too.

While trying to find a used car, a friend recommended
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
to give a second opinion on any vehicle I was serious about.
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
squeezed in two inspections in the last hour of his day without complaint, gave me straight answers on what he would buy, what his concerns were and what he thought a fair price would be for each. He refused to let me pay for the hour of his time but simply asked that I come back as a customer. It's quite refreshing to have such an honest and trusting mechanic!

BVC Dodge was extremely skilled and efficient. They were friendly and finished quickly. They were also completely honest and trustworthy regarding any work I might need done in the future. The price also was extremely fair.

They are excellent. They are right at the beach. I wanted to have him check it before I went to Portland. They have done every single repair on my car. My car has never broken down. My car is great. They are one of the best. Everyone that goes to them, is devoted. They do great things.

Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
was super professional, highly experienced and extremely helpful, but MOST OF ALL: HONEST. This one attribute covers all others. The man was so HONEST that he telephoned me once from the vehicle's site to tell me that "the car was so bad, he could not in good conscience waste my money on inspecting it) (unless I insisted of course). I was so impressed that I was prompted to offer him some gas money for his trip from
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
to Seattle, but he politely refused and thanked me for my business. Here is a professional who could have easily made another $100, since he was not obligated by contract to cancel an inspection of a car once I had sent him to inspect it. The fact that Autos For-Sale ads are often misleading and inaccurate is not his fault; and I was sending him in my place to vehicles I never checked in person. Once he had made the trip from
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
to Seattle, he technically has the right to proceed with the inspection even if the car was an empty wreck on four blocks. But not
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
; he has character.
If that were not outstanding enough, he telephoned me another time from another used vehicle's location to let me know -yet again- that it was not worth the inspection and that, based on what he had learned about me from previous inspections, "This car is not the one for you"! Those were his exact words! Again,

of
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
was trying to save me more money. Unfortunately, I was in the hospital and could not take his call, so he waited for a while hoping I would call him back; but I did not, so he had no choice but to inspect it, as he had committed to do.
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
inspections are excellent and the fees are at least $25 less than other services.
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
is very knowledgeable and meticulous on details. He notes in his report every tiny
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
, chip, ding, stain or scratch and any drops of leaking liquid.
He inspects the car inside and out, top to buttom and underneath; and personally tries every single function or feature in the car and reports anything that is not functioning as it should or parts that appear broken and had been temporarily fixed. He reports any after-
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
parts that are installed. He estimates how much life remains on things like tires and battery.
He verifies without doubt whether the vehicle had been in an accident. He does that and so much more for $99, and along with the report he sends as many pictures as necessary to support the report (15-30 or so).
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
does not receive payment until he has completed the inspection and is ready with the report. To top it all, he gave me a 10% discount on each inspection after the first one.
If I had not finally located the car I liked, I would have continued using
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
for as long as it takes because that $99 was saving me thousands of dollars I would have paid to repair any of those BMW's that LOOKED nice but had problems I would not have discovered on my own.
I highly recommend
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
of
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
and would gladly refer my family and friends to him. He is not only a great professional auto inspector but also a great person of character.

Overall this was a very good experience. I did not know what to expect as I simply found his website online and could not find any reviews outside his site. I felt
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
went out of his way to accommodate us and, with his diagnosis, very much helped us make a decision on the car. We decided to purchase this car knowing exacty what needed immediate fixing and what needed attention in the near future which helped us negotiate the price. He was very pleasant and won our confidence with his demeanor and professionalism. He was also trusting of us as we scrambled on a Saturday afternoon to get a cashiers check from a nearby bank to pay for the car while the car as making a hasty return to
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
Island to a credit union where we needed to be before 2pm. He waited for me to come back to pay him (I had left before he returned from the test drive with my son.) and I almost literally did a drive-thru to where he was standing by the
Seattle Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
. I quickly thanked him and tossed the money to him so we would not be late to catch the ferry leaving in only two minutes! We missed the ferry by about only 30 seconds.
