    For any PNW Prius owners out there (and I know there are more than a few of you...):

    I moved out to Seattle recently and am looking for a mechanic who specializes/is familiar with Toyotas and Prii.

    I need an oil change and am looking for a mechanic who I can build a relationship of trust with, so that I can take my Prius there for any repair needs and not worry about getting ripped off. I'm okay with going trial-and-error on a couple of oil changes, but I'd rather find one great mechanic and be able to stick with them.

    Let me know if you have any good recommendations! Thanks!

    emosborn,
    When I lived in Seattle I took our Toyotas (Gen2, a corolla, and a camry) to 'No 1 Japanese Auto Repair at 10218 N Greenwood.
    His prices seemed quite fair, and he would tell you which things need to be done right away, and which things you can put up with for a while.
    I wish he had a shop in Portland, where I am now.

    @Travis Decker at Atomic Auto? He hasn't posted here in a year, but seems to know his stuff. Yelp and Google reviews look good.
