“Most Makes & Models - Foreign & Domestics, Classics to Hybrids”

West Seattle Autoworks is owned and operated by longtime automotive technicians Chris Christensen and Nathen Huie. Chris and Nathen and their team are dedicated to providing you and your vehicle with the highest level of customer service and quality vehicle repair.

West Seattle Autoworks is a great alternative to taking your vehicle to the dealer. We are able to spend quality time with you explaining what is being recommended on your vehicle and why. We want to make your vehicle maintenance or repair process as straightforward as possible.

Our staff at West Seattle Autoworks brings many years of vehicle expertise. We are ASA certified and our technicians are ASE Master Certified. Our technicians have the dealer-level equipment and resources to service your foreign or domestic vehicle. We are also proud to have the skills and training needed to service hybrid vehicles. Should your vehicle need service to pass or if you failed emissions testing, we are a certified authorized emissions repair facility. We are not an emissions testing facility, the closest one to West Seattle is in South Seattle near Costco.

West Seattle Autoworks is conveniently located at 7501 35th Ave SW and are happy to give you a local ride and pick you up when your vehicle is done. The #21 Metro bus has a stop right in front of our shop and we are also just up the hill from the Fauntleroy ferry.

Should you wish to wait for your vehicle, we have a waiting area with wifi and are in walking distance to a wonderful locally owned coffee shop Café Osita.

For towing service, we highly recommend Stan's Mountain View Towing 206-767-4848.

If you need a body shop Big E Auto Rebuild in Burien is the place to go! 206-243-7916


We are open Monday – Friday from 8:00 – 5:30. Should you need to drop your car off before business hours, we have an after hours key drop to the left of the front door. Give us a call to make and appointment or you can email us at [email protected].
