So I was introduced to Taskar garage from a friend of mine. This father & son owned shop in the middle of Ballard is fantastic! I get everything done here even though it's a long drive for me. Misha and Felix are Russian and there can be a bit of language barrier at times, but the work speaks for itself.
In a single day I had my axles replaced, full engine tune-up, new clutch and flywheel installed, new air, fuel, and filters along with wires, spark plugs, and a radiator. Dropped it off that morning and picked it up at 5. I've done other things to my Civic over the last couple of years too and have been very happy each time. Very fast service.
You also can't beat their prices anywhere. They're usually about half the price of anywhere else I've talked to. Call any shop you know and try a price match, they'll laugh at you. Taskar uses new parts, shows you the old parts, and is upfront about any and all work they'll be doing.
