.

Not at fault car accident in 2008. Sports car taken to Bel Red and they did a total crap job on the $20,000 repair. Scratched their OWN paint job and tried to return it like that. What should have been a two month job took nine months. Replaced parts with non-Honda parts that should not have been replaced anyway. Didn't put all bolts and screws back on the car which was only realized two years later when the front lamp started leaking. Car was crooked after accident and seat was pushed up. Had to point it out to them. Wrong connectors, wrong bolts, just basic krap job. They kept trying to return it saying it was done and were forced to keep fixing their junk repairs. Do not ever take your car here, whether you drive a fine import or a junker.

I recently backed up my car in to a pole, as a result I made arrangements to get it to get it fixed. I called my insurance company to file a claim. We decided to take it to Bellevue Auto Rebuild 1424 130th Avenue NE. Instead I accidentally drove to Bel-Red Auto Rebuild 1404 130th NE, not realizing that I was at the wrong shop. I talked to the nice gal on the left as I came in. I told her a had a 1pm appointment. She asked for my name and I gave it to her. I filled out a page of information on the clipboard. She never told me I did not have an appointment or that I was in the wrong shop. The technical person that I talked to said that they would get started on it right away. I was misled and deceived by Bel-Red Auto Rebuild to believe this was the shop I called the day before, when in fact It was not.

Later I got a call from Bellevue Auto Rebuild asking if I was going to come in later. I said I already did, telling her who I was. I then it hit me: I gave it to the wrong people. I said "Well I already gave it to the other shop and they already had it apart. Sorry."

A few hours later I got a call from my insurance company claims department telling me about this kind of deception, and how Bel-Red Auto Rebuild has pulled this in the past. We went into conference call with Bel-Red. Bel-Red began to take my car apart knowing full well they would be paid by the insurance company for the work already underway. I told Bel-Red Auto Rebuild to stop work and I want the remaining repairs to be finished at Bellevue Auto Rebuild.. The guy at Bel-Red told me he had to talk to the owner before he could release my car. My response was wait, this is my vehicle, I can have this moved with or without your approval. The insurance company would grudging pay Bel-Red for the 2 hours work done, and I would have Bellevue Auto Rebuild get the car and drive it up to their shop about 200 yards up the street.

I was misled and deceived by Bel-Red to believe this was the shop I called the day before, when in fact It was not. They began work on a vehicle before the insurance company looked at it , which is standard practice to keep costs real and in check.

Bel-Red Auto Rebuild is a diamond in the rough. There are approx. 5 shops on this same street. I went to a few of these shops to decide where I wanted to take my SL Mercedes after my wife got into a small accident. I decided to leave my car in the hands of Bel-Red which stood out without question. A few days later I had my car back in excellent condition. The attention to deail was superb. Go to this shop.

Being a younger female I will admit I have been taken advantage of before while trying to get my car repaired both mechanically and body work. I am ALWAYS sceptical about these types of businesses. I was refered to Bel-Red from Land Rover where I purchaced my car. The staff at Bel-Red was both male and female, genuine personalities, and truly cared about my vehicle. My car was back to me in a week, all repairs perfect, not to mention they fully detailed it for no extra charge. I will tell everyone about this shop, especially my female friends who are also weary about these types of businesses.

I brought in an older car to be restored at Bel-Red after talking about my project with a few other shops in the area. I decided to go with Bel-Red after meeting the owner Rich Little who also shares my passion of restoration. Having done these projects before I knew it was going to take a while to be completed. I was notified every step of the way when they found the hard to find parts, and updated me with the time line and so forth. They actually had my car to me 3 months before they had originally had estimated! I would highly reccomend this shop to anone who needs any type of work done to their car.

I brought my Jeep to Bel-Red Auto a month ago to get repaired after I was rear ended. I was pleasantly surprised with the office staff who were extremely professional. The repair only took a few days, they had a rental car waiting for me at their shop so I did not have to deal with anymore headaches. I have never been so happy with the aftermath of being in an accident.

I had my car towed to Bel-Red Auto Rebuild after an accident. While my car did have to be kept outside until it was able to be moved in and out of the shop (what do you expect them to tow it in at night??) I felt it was safe with the reassurance of video surveillance. My experiance was great! I felt as important as the other customers who were driving expensive fancy cars.

I was in an accident and dropped off my car at their shop. A week later they FINALLY got around to looking at it to START an estimate (a week, seriously). Then they leave my car in their lot with its entire engine exposed -anybody could have stripped parts from it at any time if they pleased (and I had some after-market parts installed.) They finally finished it after 6 weeks. Listen to me and the the other reviewer on this site. They do "get to it when they feel like it".

Here, read this:
http://www.insiderpages.com/b/3723353715

Got my car back and they had the lights messed up, they had globs of polish all over a DIRTY car, they scratched my leather seats, my kickplate, my door, dented my other kickplate, and chipped the paint on the side door. I finally just wrote the car off as a loss and traded it in because I didn't want to go throught them "fixing" the car again. -I don't have the time for another 6 weeks. Stay away from this shop.

In March 2004, Bel-Red owner Rich Little accepted a $1500.00 cash deposit to begin work on my 66 Nova station wagon, after writing a $3400 estimate. My car then sat in his shop, literally untouched, for TEN MONTHS. Then, Rich denied ever getting the money from me!!! I sued him in small claims court and won. Rich had no qualms about bald-faced lying to the judge, so he'll do it to you too. Rich is an angry, arrogant Bellevue brat who is far too important and self-obsessed for much except other rich brats and 'celebrities'. Huge employee turnover, because his personality is so abrasive, and he's a slickster.You're better off going to Haury's in Lake City or RnR in Bellevue.
