West Seattle Autoworks: AAA-approved; also in ‘Don’t Drip & Drive’

Two notes tonight from West Seattle Autoworks (WSB sponsor) – co-owner Todd Ainsworth says, “We are happy to announce that we have received our AAA approval here at the shop. It was a process that took months to complete, but it’s official now” – and that’s why the logo is now on the sign (photo at right). Todd also says WSAW is “participating in a new campaign sponsored by the State Department of Ecology and ASA called ‘Don’t Drip and Drive’ – aimed at educating consumers about the problems that can be caused by fluids leaking from vehicles. Runoff from the streets go directly into storm drains and, in turn, into the streams and creeks that feed Puget Sound.” Watch for a promotional campaign this month by the state, in which, Todd says, “participating shops such as ours will provide the customer with a free leak inspection. If leaks are found, the customer will be entitled to a coupon for 10% off (up to $50) toward the leak repairs.” You can find out more at fixcarleaks.org and pugetsoundstartshere.org.


  1. Bravo to Todd and the gang! We’ve been taken our vehicles there for a couple years now and I’ve never been more impressed with automotive service than I have with them.

  2. Congratulations on AAA Approval, West Seattle Autoworks! AND great job getting the word out on the “Don’t Drip and Drive. Fix That Leak!” campaign! Many area auto repair facilities have joined together with Automotive Service Association, Puget Sound Starts Here, and the Department of Ecology to bring awareness to what pollutes Puget Sound and how we can prevent prevent it. Swedish Automotive is proud to be participating (see our blog post at http://www.swedishauto.com/2013/03/dont-drip-drive-fix-that-leak/.) Ask your auto repair facility if they are ASA members, whether they are participating, and what they are offering to help!
