Just a word of caution to our West Seattle neighbors - several years ago, we had a rash of thieves drilling holes in fuel tanks and draining them. Since fuel prices have jumped, I'm hearing reports of this happening again. Haven't heard about any in WS yet, but be proactive and aware of where you are parked. Catalytic converters are bad enough, but they don't even bother siphoning the fuel and just drill into the tank - ruining it and making it impossible to drive your vehicle.

Just a heads up to other local West Seattle business owners - we came in this morning to find someone had cut a hole in our gate and tried to cut the locks but didn't succeed. Maybe they got scared away, maybe they gave up. Either way, we feel fortunate that the only other thing we can see damaged is our upstairs neighbor's mailbox (pried open). Please keep an eye out for suspicious activity! Have a good weekend, everyone!


"I always have the best customer service. Sean has driven me back to the ferry and has picked me up from the boat. Living on an that is a huge plus. I know he does it in his own car. He is always so personable!"
- M. L.


"So friendly and transparent on their thorough inspection of my car. Will use again."
- J. R.


"I thought the water pump had went out in my 2005 Saab 9-3 as it was getting hot all of the sudden. I had it towed to European Auto since they're close and familiar with Saab's. Dealt with Sean, who was friendly and spoke in terms I could understand. Said it was the head gasket and the why that kinda thing happens, He then gave me options, price points, their availability etc. Even give me a couple days to think about it. He even gave me some general knowledge about me car. I didn't know. Overall the customer service here reminds me of customer service of a generation ago, sincere and genuine. Thanks again"
- S. K.


"Great staff! First time visiting this place and everyone was great at communicating throughout the entire process. They even provided shuttle service because I was in a pinch. I would definitely recommend Swedish Automotive! Not only did they get me in and out quickly, they were thorough in addressing my issue. "
- T. R.


"They were very friendly, got me in quickly, fixed the problem on my Volvo, and DIDN’T overcharge me! Highly recommend!"
- T. V.

Low risk, high reward: Catalytic converter thieves are cashing in and causing financial pain for car owners

A good article in the Seattle Times this weekend with some useful information about our recent surge in catalytic converter thefts. If you are wondering or need a primer, it's worth the read!

Thefts of catalytic converters are skyrocketing in King County, and throughout the U.S., as thieves sell the stolen devices for the precious metals inside.


"Friendly, reliable and affordable service to include things I had failed to realize were overdue for maintenance. I feel that I now have a completely refurbished vehicle. One small comment: vehicle was not cleaned/vacuumed prior to return - usually a nice touch."
- S. S.


"Excellent service and trustworthy. I would not go anywhere else. My car is always taken care of, and both the car and I appreciate that. Thanks Jason!"
- L. V.


"I had an excellent experience with European Auto Repair. They were communicative and quick at identifying and fixing an issue with my car. Very pleased with the service and will definitely return again for future automotive needs."
- L. P.


"Really fortunate to have Swedish in West Seattle! Great service and honest, Take my 2008 Land Rover Range Rover HSE there for service."
- T. O.


"Friendly and capable staff, dedicated to finding out the exact cause of the issue I was experiencing. They nailed it the first time, and got it done quickly and correctly."

"Great service with great communication."
- D. P.


"Swedish Automotive has been doing business in WSea for as long as I can remember (late 80s?). I recently learned this independent shop has been servicing Mercedes-Benz cars since 2019.

Rain water was pooling in my trunk. I thought the rubber weather stripping needed to be replaced. Turns out it was something else. Thank you Todd and Sean for correctly diagnosing the cause of this problem. I really appreciate the step by step explanation along with timely communication of what to expect. Now that I know you service MB I will be dropping off my car here instead of the dealership!
- J.


"My vehicle is 43 years old and wearing out!
The latest issue was a bearing within the differential. They took on the unruly job, sourced the hard-to-find parts needed, and completed the job other shops might have turned down. OE/NO parts were implemented in the general rebuild, and the job wasn’t rushed just to flip a spot in the bay. I’ve been nothing but happy with the work performed on my vehicle. And, it doesn’t surprise me. They generally will not give your car back to you until they are satisfied the work was done right and to the highest expectations.
I would recommend Swedish Automotive to anyone in a heartbeat."
- B. A.


"They were very good at keeping me apprised of their progress in diagnosing my car's issues, repaired everything that was currently pertinent very quickly, and clearly know their way around Volvos. My car does kayak hauling and exploring of the Sound area for new places to put in as well as extensive commuting, so I need to feel like I can rely on it. I think the people at Swedish are very reliable."

With in-person training still on hold, we held our first in-shop training of the year last week for our technicians. We feel this type of training will be with us after the pandemic is behind us - it makes it easy for trainers across the country to reach a large audience. Our shop was only one of dozens that were attending this session!

"I brought my BMW into Swedish Automotive with multiple issues. Sean M was great about communicating every issue with my car every step of the way. They were able to fix all the issues with my car in a timely manner. And, Swedish Automotive has a safe and secure pickup of your car after hours . I highly recommend Swedish Automotive!"
- J. B.


"West Seattle native here: Very friendly and attentive staff. Great service communication. Prices may seem a little higher, BUT - that is in comparison to all these big box chains that are taking over the markets, and the general costs of Seattle development. Have seen the business grow since over the years, I hope these folks are around for a longtime!"
- M. S.


"Service was thorough and the multiple forms of communicating “next steps” were great: ie images sent via text and email with relative estimates and explanations"
- N. T.


"Good communication re repairs."

love this place!
For the Swedish Automotive European Vehicle Maintenance & Repair team, embracing this new profit center was all about location:
Is the end of the general repair shop in sight? Ratchet+Wrench checked in with C&J Automotive, Swedish Automotive European Vehicle Maintenance & Repair, and YHS Automotive Service Center to see how they've embraced specialization in their shops:
I just want to give a shout out to Chris and his team at Swedish Automotive, replaced my clutch and got me back on the road in no time. They always take such good care of us, so nice to have a mechanic we can trust. Even after we have moved to Sumner we continue to commute to our mechanic!
Dear Swedish Automotive--I really like my MiniCooper!!! and trust you to keep it going. ... I appreciate your expertise. Everyone else... No matter where you live... but especially if you live in West Seattle... this is a great place for car health.
