We have been customers of Mechanics Pride for a few years, with two different cars. Recently we had an oil change on our newer car right before moving to Oregon. Unfortunately, a new mechanic had replaced the oil filter with the wrong one. After a week or so of unknowingly driving with rapidly draining oil, the engine seized up. We were told by a local mechanic that we needed a new engine, but to contact Mechanics Pride to ask about the oil filter, because it was just barely hanging on by a thread. After Mike looked into it, he discovered the error, acknowledged the mistake, and took every step necessary to get us a new engine and a rental car while we waited for the repairs. We were blown away by the honesty and responsibility shown by Mechanics Pride. While it was unfortunate that this had happened, my wife and I are still highly satisfied by their work. All other repairs and maintenance they have performed have been exemplary. I would recommend them to anyone needing repairs and maintenance in Spokane.
I chose this place to get new brakes after getting several quotes in the Spokane area. Meineke tried to charge me for unnecessary calipers and seals, but the gentlemen at Mechanics Pride were reasonable and honest. While I was waiting, I encountered one customer who has been going to this shop since its opening 25 years ago! Also, there was a young woman who came in with donuts to thank the workers for giving her a free diagnostic when she was in a bind. Great place, locally owned, and I plan to go back.
As an elderly lady who is not a "wrench monkey" and doesn't know much about cars, I was apprehensive having to take my car to a repair shop as I have been ripped off before. Not the case at Mechanics Pride. Mr. Federico the owner of the business was very patient with me as he tried to explain what they had found with my car, he did it in such a way that I was able to understand. They even took me back home so I wouldn't have to sit and wait, and then picked me back up when they were done. I will be going back and have sent some of my friends and family there as well!! Thanks!!
