Moss Alley Motors is conveniently located on Capitol Hill. They specialize in a few makes of cars, and they do a pretty good job servicing them.
They are a busy shop, so sometimes you have to wait a day or two to get your car in for work, but if there is an urgent problem they are usually pretty good about fitting you in to the schedule.
Their hourly rate is on the high/average end of things, but they do seem pretty fair about their billing. They don't seem to talk you into work you don't need, and they are willing to explain what you need done and why.
It's car repair, so it's never fun or painless, and eventually it's going to cost you a bit, but Moss Alley's friendly staff doesn't make it too painful.
