I have been going to this Econo Lube for the last year and a half! The owners are extremely friendly and have often waived diagnostic fees or oil changes as generosity for my loyal service. One time I had to repair my timing belt, water pump, and radiator all costing me around $950 (pretty cheap for those repairs). There was no way I was able to pay that amount of money to handle these neccessary repairs on my car. Granted I did not keep up the maintenance on my car so therefore any issues with the car is my fault because I did not get it checked out every 6 months or so. But Bob the owner worked with me to help me pay of the cost of the repairs and fix my car in a timely manner. Ryan and the other employees have offered me rides to work while they repair my car and are just extremely helpful. I recommend this place to everyone! :-)

Ok, finally I have found a shop where I can go in and say: "fix it Ryan". He and his team know what they're doing. No more bouncing around from shop to shop like a pinball machine. This is my shop from now on and I am loving it!

I recently had my oil changed here and found out that these guys do way more than oil changes. My car needed several repairs, not just the usual maintenance items, but I had been driving around for weeks with my Check Engine light on. The car had become difficult to start, and had an intermittent stalling problem. (no time to take it into the dealer!) When I came to collect my car and pay for the oil change, they had done an inspection and scanned the check engine light. They took the time to explain the problems with my car and provided a very reasonable repair estimate and said they would provide a free rental car during the repair process. I agreed, they did the work, and my car is running great. My shop from now on.

I took my car to Econo Lube in the U-district because I needed a quick oil change on my way home from work. They offered me a free safety inspection along with my oil change. They told be the brake fluid was low and told me they would do a free brake inspection. Turns out I had a leaking caliper which they told me could cause a squishy pedal. I always thought that was normal. They replaced my brakes, gave me a rental care and fixed my check engine light. The people there were so helpful and friendly. I take all of my families cars there now and recommend them to all my friends.

I came here for a simple tune-up and oil change. The location was convenient for me and they easily squeezed me into their schedule. Unfortunately, I ended up paying a lot of money for services and replacement parts they convinced me I needed in addition to just those things.

There is a strong possibility I might have needed these services done on my car or parts replaced, but the unfortunate thing is that I later discovered (after going to several other mechanics) that these were unnecessarily replaced. After having paid a great deal of money for those services/parts, my car seemed to perform a lot more poorly than previously. I noticed a bunch of problems, one of them being that it smoked profusely everytime I started it (an issue I never had to deal with before I took my car to Econo Lube N Tune).

When I asked them to look into this, they were extremely unfriendly and not open to the idea of helping me with my problem. They chalked it up to "coincidence" and said in order for them to fix the problem, I'd have to spend upwards of $1000 just to have them look into it. When I filed a complaint against this business they made dishonest claims about what happened (even though I had documentation to prove otherwise) and were unwilling to repair the damages on my car.

In the end, I decided it just wasn't worth it to deal with them anymore and had another mechanic help me fix the problems with my car. I definitely do not recommend this place to anyone. Their customer service was poor (I had to contact them on numerous occasions to get simple answers), and I simply do not trust that they had my best interest in mind from the get-go.

PROS: Convenient location
CONS: Bad service, more problems with my car after they serviced it, expensive
