On Nov 10th, the starter on my Honda 2007 CRV went out. On Nov 11th, I called Dowdy's to inquire if they could service my car and they said yes, I had my car towed to their Federal Way location and they were able to replace the starter the same day. As usual, consistently great service from the Dowdy's team. Thank you Dowdy's!

Incompetent. I would give a negative rating, if I could. Have had our car in 2 separate times for an oil leak repair they claimed they fixed. They had the car for more than a week and charged us $1300. In the end, the leak was not fixed. Either they did not try to fix it (and said they did), or were too incompetent to fix it (and would not admit it). Neither option is good. Both times they claimed it was fixed, when it obviously wasn't. Don't waste your time or hard earned money at this place...something smells rotten at this place.

Dowd'’s in Ontario completed a full pre-purchase inspection which gave me the data I needed to feel confident about buying a used vehicle. Mike and his team of techs were then able to accommodate my schedule to fix the issues associated with my new-to-me car. The tech team and Mike are professionals and experts in their field. They went over my vehicle carefully and thoroughly| the written guarantees for labor and parts are an added bonus. They answered all my questions with consideration and respect. It's a family-run business with shops in Boise, where I live. I am now a Dowdy's fan. Thank you for your great service!

The online appointment system is great. The response from the store was easy to find. They got us in on time and out reasonably. They gave us a detailed report on the vehicle complete with pictures. The lower star rating comes from the expensive repair estimate. I do not question if it would be done correctly, however it is always a big budget item.

Picked up car and noticed that there was grease on the headliner by the driver's door and grease left on passenger seat. This is not acceptable and employees should use caution and care when working on customers vehicles so that grease marks are not spread thruout the vehicle. Covers should be placed.on seats and floor and hands should be free of grease before touching interior of vehicle.

With 24 hours to go before a Sunday road trip, my brake lights decided to go out — like, pitch-black out. On a moment's notice, Dowdy's (Federal Way) managed to squeeze me into their schedule, replace out the defective part and install the new one, and have me back on the road by mid Saturday afternoon — about 90 minutes from start to finish (including hunting down the part). Not only were they professional, knowledgeable, and generally cool guys, but they were extraordinarily accommodating in last-minute circumstances. My thanks — and my future business — to the Dowdy's on FedWay. Cheers!

While waiting, I was able to observe the staff's interactions with other customers and was very impressed with their professionalism. I was assisted by Harrison, he could not have been more professional, he took the time to explain everything to me in full detail. I was very satisfied and will never be returning to the Honda dealer again. Wish I knew about them earlier...

I have used Dowdy's a couple times for my Navigator. The first time they worked on my car I had 3 problems to check. They fixed one, charged me too much for the other so I didn't get it fixed and they completely missed checking for my exhaust leak and just changed my oil and sent me on my way. 3 months later when I went to have an oil change they told me the oil pan threads had been stripped. I hoped that since they were the last people that touched and drained my oil pan that they would replace it but instead they suctioned my oil out and changed it that way and said I needed to spend $600 replacing my oil pan. I took my car back into them giving them a second chance because of the convenient location to my home I gave them 2 more things to check and fix, the exhaust leak, the and the running boards. They fixed my exhaust leak and told me the running boards would be $1800 a piece to replace the motors in them. We decided to get a second opinion and took it to Buss. Our new mechanics from now on, Buss Auto was able replace the threads on the oil pan and clean them so they are functioning without replacing the whole pan for $50, and they took the time to diagnose the issues I had with my running boards and instead of just quoting me a price for new board motors, they saw all they needed were some lost screws and are functioning fine. I spent less than $100 instead of the $3000 I was going to have to pay Dowdy's to fix my oil pan and running boards. I will not use Dowdy's ever again!

I would like to thank Mike Strange and Nick Strange for their help when our truck broke down along Oregon 201 a few miles north of Ontario while pulling a U-Haul trailer. They stopped and assisted us with trying to figure out what was wrong with the vehicle and getting a hold of a tow truck. They then gave us a ride to to Weiser and pulled the trailer too. They live in that area but still both went way above and beyond what I expected. I want to thank them very much for their help as it looked like it would be a long wait for a tow truck and figure out a way to get the trailer towed also. They have earned Dowdy's a new customer!

the absolute worst customer service of anyone I've ever hired. My wife's Durango broke down while she was in Ontario visiting our grandkids and her car got towed to Dowdy's. It cost us 5 grand plus 2 weeks to get the transmission replaced. I later found I could have had it replaced for half that, my bad, I was on the other side of the state. A few months later while detailing the Durango for my wife, I found the transfer case shifter flopping around loose. Dowdy's response was to suggest someone must have crawled under our Durango and stole the linkage rod, because they don't make mistakes. They kept putting my wife off, telling her they had someone ""in the field"" looking for a replacement linkage rod for her, until she finally just quit calling them. They had the gaul to send her a Christmas card with a coupon. Like we would ever deal with them again.

My confidence in Dowdy's is growing every time I bring the Pilot in for service. Had been taking it to a Honda dealer for every service since new in 2007, but to Dowdy's since moving here (from Portland area) almost two years ago. Couldn't be happier with the quality of work, the pricing, and always a good greeting coming in the door. Also, so convenient to be next to Starbucks while waiting.

Harrison, and his team are amazing. I recently snapped a spark plug in 2013 Ford Explore. Instead of automatically telling me the engine was going to have to be removed which would have cost around $2,700.00. Instead of doing that Harrison and his team did not give up and after a couple of days were able to remove the spark plug which was in a the most inaccessible spots and latterly had to create a tool to get it out. I bring every vehicle I own to them, because they're good people, honest, and very helpful.

I have had the best of treatment from my Dowdy's on Federal Way. In the past year, I have had to tow a vehicle twice to Dowdy's and they have been able to repair my older 70's vintage Chevy Blazer and get me back on the road again. We have also taken my son's 2003 Subaru Forrester for repairs and are really pleased with the customer service that we have received. Their communication is superb. They don't do repairs without checking, and recommendations for additional service are made without pressure or judgement. Highly Recommended! Also.....very convenient location with plentiful space for parking! Thanks Guys!

Wow, just wow! This was best experience I've ever had with a mechanic. True to their reputation, the manager and team made extra effort to provide reliable and honest diagnosis of my vehicle's condition. The problem was identified, and though they could have claimed I needed more work done, they told me what it was, a relatively cheap fix of $167, mostly labor. I will be referring all family and friends to this business. A++

I'm in Meridian visiting relatives. I wanted to get an oil change for my 2006 Chrysler Town&Country mini van. They also checked the cooling system, power steering, brakes,etc. They found a leaking water pump, radiator, power steering hose & oil pan gasket. Instead of using expensive parts from a dealer, they search for reasonably priced parts from other sources. They told me everything is guaranteed for 3 years. I checked online at AutoZone to see the price for the parts I needed and found them to be the same or higher than Dowdy's. Good job Dowdy's.

We took our Mazda 5 in to have the brakes checked and the gentleman there was very friendly and their shop is ""super"" clean (says a lot about the care you'll receive just by that). We were surprised to hear back from them at the time they said they would call. Although my brakes were so worn, they had gone done to the rotor and I needed new rotors (not their fault), they also found a serpentine belt needed replacing. Of course, my tendency towards skepticism kicked in and I thought, ""Yeah, right, well they better show me my parts because that's the first thing I'm going to ask for....etc."" So we were super surprised that as soon as we walked in the gentleman said, ""Hi guys, you ready to see your brakes and rotors?"" Wow! Honesty right up front, we love that. They showed us and we were amazed because the brakes weren't making any noises, but they did feel rough. The price was well within reason and with that along with the exception service and friendliness here we have found our ""Go-to"" car repair place from this point forward. I don't know why it's so hard to find a mechanic that just tells you the truth, doesn't gouge you on the price just because they can, and that is friendly, but I am happy to say we have found just that here at Dowdy's. As for the replacing of my serpentine belt...well, my car is running better than it has in a long time. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Not very happy with the results for the repairs that never happened to my VW. Everything was supposedly checked except for the problem which turned out to be a fuel pump. With a bill from Dowdy for nearly three hundred dollars I was a little disappointed to say the least, I ended up replacing the pump myself and continued our trip to the Oregon Coast. Brooke, the store manager was helpful and nice, but I can't say the same for their mechanics.

Dowdy's completed a timing belt service, valve service, tune-up which included new spark plugs, Break inspection with Fuid flush, Transmission service and radiator flush. Dowdy's contacted me with any miscellaneous items that needed attention with a break down on price. Broken Thermostat housing is an example of this service. I dropped the car off on a Wednesday and it was ready as soon as Friday. The communication was excellent, the work and warranty also excellent. The completed price was pleasant to the wallet and competitive in the Merdian, Idaho auto repair market.

I was towed to this location, by AAA, due to a loud noise in my car when driving above 70 mph| I was traveling from Denver to my home near Mt. Rainier in WA State. While at the repair shop, they did not find a cause for the noise but suggested another repair to be done on the front axel. After spending a little over $250, on the repair that was probably needed at some point but not urgently that day, I was told that if the noise comes back that staff would come and get me, regardless of where I was. Well, within about 20 miles of leaving Ontario the noise came back and called the shop| was told to make my way back and I chose not to as I was in an area on I84 that did not have an exit available for quite some time. By the time I got to an exit, to turn around, I decided to just go to the next town and find a mechanic to help. Super disappointed in the fact that reason I went to the shop was not handled and another repair item was jumped on.

The personnel who work here are friendly and well versed on communication with the public. I do question some of their honesty and skills. Took the vehicle in question there for leaking radiator fluid and over heating. They apparently fixed the problem with a couple of new clamps. Had to take the vehicle back in for the same problems at which time they informed me that the head gasket was blown. OK. I let them proceed with the 2200 dollar fix it charge, and when the heads came back from the shop and they went to place them back, i was informed that the head threads were stripped. Apparently the torc on the bolts were some value plus a quarter turn. The bolt threads took the initial amount but the quarter turn stripped the threads. Dowdy's then informed me that there would be an additional cost of 1200 dollars to res leave the threads on the aluminum block so the heads could be properly placed. Did I mention that this was during Christmas. Kind of tough to travel about without a vehicle. Upon completion of all the work I received a phone call that all was complete, but there was now a power steering problem, that would eventually need replacement. As I looked under the hood of the car, it became quite obvious that they had not placed all the pullies in proper alignment. We took the car back where they found that they had not properly placed the pullies in alignment. When they did finally fix the problem which they caused, the power steering problem magically disappeared. Needless to say I am very disappointed with the service received.

Just had my first experience at Al's Car Care and it was great. I have this little 1985 pickup that failed it's emissions test, and Al's was one of the state approved places for emissions repairs. It ended up needing a new carburetor, which I had assumed it would. They got a me a new carb, kept me updated constantly of what was going on, the timeline, expected repairs and price, and even contracted out to have my windshield replaced while I was there. I'll definitely take my cars there in the future if I have to. Thank you!

Broken down while traveling across the country... We were supported with an a thorough repair and analysis of my car on our tight schedule. I genuinely appreciate the job they did for us, and we made it back to our home safely. When your car requires maintenance or major repairs, it's never fun, but working with a solid mechanic who tries to keep your best interests in mind is an essential element for overcoming the obstacle. I am glad that in my time of trouble I had the ability to support this establishment, while they supported me.

I love going to Dowdy's Auto! If you have ever fearful that the mechanics are just going to swindle you, you don't have to worry about that here. Dowdy's Auto is a place where they take care of you and your vehicles. They always try to get you the best deal they can, and they always tell you about what they are going to do before they actually do it, which allows you as the customer the freedom of choice. You choose if you want it done or not. I was told to go to Dowd's Auto by a friend, and I would send everyone I talked to, even my Mother to them. To you females, don't worry that they are going to take adavantage of you, or talk down to you because of your gender. They realize that they are in business for one reason| take care of you.

On Friday, I called Dowdy's kinda of last minute as I had to get a cooling system flush on my daughters car, before the weather changed. I had a few recommendation's, but none of them were open on Saturday. I explained my situation to Brandon on the phone, and he fit me in. He said it would be done before closing. They had to flush the system 5 times, to get the junk out. It was bad. This was above and beyond what I expected. They gave me an thorough explanation of what to keep an eye on, and didn't try to upsell me anything Not only that, with a full schedule, it was done 3 hours early, the cost came to what they quoted me on the phone, $100.00 + tax, and I had found a $25.00 coupon. A super clean shop too. Definitely an honest, upstanding shop, that I will return to, and highly recommend.

They didn't charge me anything for all their time, effort and helping me with my car. They took time to answer all my questions.....with a smile!

Drove in off the street because I saw 19.95 oil change. I asked what the catch was? He saw I was driving an old Honda Accord and said , no catch! He was a very nice man with great service. The shop is super clean and they are all very professional and organized. They brought to my attention a couple of things that need to be addressed soon with no high pressured sales tactics! They got me in and out quickly. Very please with Dowdy's aotumotive in Meridian. I will be a customer for sure!

I very rarely review places on Yelp as service is usually okay at most places - something that is a bit above average or a bit below average is not going to convince me to spend my time writing a review.Dowdy's, however, went well beyond good service for me. We woke up with a car issue, did a bit of panicking, randomly found a place online that was near work, called the shop, and Dowdy's told us we could bring it in immediately if we wanted. They checked it out, diagnosed the problem, and then informed us that we were probably still under warranty and should see if we can get it repaired through the dealership with little cost to us. I'm not sure if the dealer/warranty will cover our issue yet, but I am pretty sure that I will be taking all of my future service to Dowdy's. They easily could have just fixed our car and not mentioned a cost saving alternative| instead of getting a quick buck, they have earned a future repeat-customer. Thanks to Tyler and the crew for their help today.

Nice people. You can trust them with your car and your money. My family has stuck with them for over ten years, and we will continue to do so. Seems like they realize that your money AND your transportation are on the line, and it actually matters to them. All the guys there have taken good care of our family cars. I inherited a family vehicle and the fan that powers the ac/heater went out. Their service invoice for the car still had my mother's name on it. I asked if I could change it to my name, and Justin advised me to wait so their warranty would cover my repair when he could very easily have changed the name and then charged me hundreds of dollars. I arrived prepared to pay for the service: he went out of his way to save me a lot of money. He even offered to stay late to scan my check engine code when I was running low on time.PS. Just FYI, I am a different Brandon R. than the one below.

Not sure if they have a new mechanic... but my father's recent experience with Dowdy's has brought my rating and my trust down... He brought of his two trucks in multiple times (during the same time period- the last couple weeks). They kept telling him he needed this and that, but this and that never fixed the problem, and they still charged him. He finally got fed up and took one truck to the Ford dealer, they figured out the problem within minutes and got the problem fixed the same day. When we tried to talk to the company about why he is upset with their service| they didn't do much to apologize. I am going to try to talk to them again. But if we cant get this resolved my rating will go down to a single star only because I don't think you can give no stars. I am really disappointed Dowdy's.

We bought a used 2003 Lincoln. Shortly afterwards, the Service Engine light came on. I did some Internet research about who, besides dealers, in the local area could repair our car. I chose Dowdy because we want to work with local small businesses, and we wanted someone close to where we live. So we came in off the street. Tyler greeted us and listened to what we had to say. He had our car up and running in less than one day. And, we feel his price was fair and he didn't gouge us. He was fair and treated us as if our business matters to him. He offers a good warranty and we're looking forward to having a neighborhood mechanic who will help to keep our car functioning properly.

If they find something to worry about they tell me and never pressure me to get it fixed until I can afford it. The shop is clean, the work is done fast and properly and the prices are always reasonable. If they can't do the work you need, they always recommend a shop that treats me the same way.
