The staff were awesome to work with! We had to be towed to their location and they immediately took time to address our truck issue. They got us back on the road by late afternoon the same day. The mechanics were very helpful in showing us what needed to be completed to fix the problem. Outstanding service and communication, highly recommend them! Thank you!!!!

Mark and Crystal are super helpful and make things stress free on me. They’re accommodating with my work schedule too. I literally live in Ellensburg and still go to them because they are more trained, affordable and legit than anyone else. They washed my car and vacuumed it. 5/5!

Excellent customer service. WAY above and beyond. Best experience in more than 10yrs. Needed my lower control arms replaced on my 2014 GMC ACADIA. They worked with my u0022after marketu0022 warranty. They found additional stabilizer bushings that needed to be replaced also. Spoke to Krystel, she was very professional, and able to give me a loaner. Another shop in Auburn told me I had to pay $1000, because my warranty would not pay market rate for parts or labor. Well that was a lie, as Central Ave Auto not only shocked me by only charging me my $100 deductible, but put up with the warranty company not wanting to authorize a 2nd shop to work on my SUV. u003cbru003eI have already told coworkers to go here, because of the loaner available, now I will be telling everyone to go here, if you need work done in the Kent, WA area. Big Thanks to Krystel u0026amp; Mark at Central Ave, Auto. Made my New Year already.
