West Seattle Autoworks: Welcoming a new WSB sponsor

Today we welcome a new WSB sponsor, West Seattle Autoworks, owned and operated by Todd Ainsworth and Chris Christensen, both longtime West Seattle residents.

(Todd and Chris with team member Nathan Huie)
West Seattle Autoworks has been open for a little over a month, but the staff brings more than 60 years of combined experience. Todd and Chris say they are working to earn each customer’s trust by giving straight, honest assessments of what work needs to be done. The shop is ASA-certified and the staff all have obtained ASE Master certifications. The work on all domestic makes, German, Japanese, and some select European makes. They also specialize in working on hybrid vehicles.

West Seattle Autoworks is the first garage in the neighborhood to offer oil changes using re-refined oil from Universal Lubes. Todd says that by using a re-refined product, we can cut down our use of imported oil by two barrels per oil change, and the re-refined oil only adds $10 to the cost of the average oil change. West Seattle Autoworks is open Monday through Friday from 8 to 5:30. You can make an appointment by phoning 206-257-5344 or you can book an appointment online by going to this page on their website. West Seattle Autoworks is at 7501 35th SW (here’s a map), and you can find them on Facebook too.

    Oh, flashback – I remember Chris (and young daughter) well from my barista days at the Morgan Junction Tully’s about five years back. Glad to see WS Autoworks as a WSB sponsor; congratulations on the new business, guys!

    They are great, used them already on my Land Cruiser. I wish we could take our Volvo there as well.

    Was just there last week. The guys did a great job on our car. Will definitely be using them for all of our repair needs in the future!

    just made an appointment. I’ve been looking for a good local shop for my car.

    Went here recently based on their advertising on the WSB and I’m glad I did: my car was fixed quickly, for a great price, by nice guys. Will definitely go back . . .

Sorry, comment time is over.
