Bellevue >Exotic Motors Auto Rebuild
I brought my car in for an estimate
after reading reviews and checking and comparing prices at other shops. I thought I had done my homework...
Most people that have a problem with their car take it in to a car shop with the expectation to have it fixed. The guy who helped me was incompetent. He was unhelpful and uninformative -- "Lucky me" to fall into his hands ?? I specifically asked for an estimate for specific repairs to be done and I pointed out the exact problems that needed to be repaired. The guy acted as thought he understood what I wanted and verbally agreed to e-mail me estimates for all the repairs. Later it became obvious that he either tried to set me up or simply forgot one of my request.
I was shocked and disappointed when I picked up my car. I attempted to explain that they did not do what I asked and they responded with a bunch of auto repair jargon referencing diagnostic codes that mean nothing to me. I felt like a patient argue with an arrogant doctor about the "diagnosis codes". I soon realized there was no point in arguing and I was wasting my time.
Just a price to learn a lesson -- Don't believe anything they say. Make sure you CONFIRM EVERYTHING with them in WRITING if you must go here !!
Bellevue Exotic Motors has amazing service!!!. The guys at exotic motors helped me with my two accidents. They were very kind and I could tell they really cared about me as a customer. As a young lady, most auto shops try to take advantage of my limited knowledge of cars but Brent made sure that I was not getting ripped off. They treat customers like family and will help you through whatever problems you have at the best of their ability. I am very thankful I chose Bellevue Exotic Motors and will definitely be coming back for all my car needs!
Don't Think It Can Get Any Better. I appreciate the up-front honesty from Exotic Motors. They kept me informed every step of the way. I first went to a location that was recommended by the insurance company of the person that hit me and my kids. I felt like the information they were giving me was vague and inaccurate. After being recommended by Michael's Toyota, I decided to stop by Exotic Motors in Bellevue. Immediately they did a free estimate and showed me all the damage that the first place failed to do. Within 15 mins I had a rental car that was able to fit my family of five and was told that everything was going to be taken care of. I felt like they were truly on our side. I went to pick up our car a few days later and not only did it look as good as new, it was detailed inside and out!
These guys are the stars of rock!.
I just had a front end collision repaired by Exotic. While this was being taken care of by Progressive, I received nothing but updates, accurate information, and details as to the progress of my vehicle's repair. Brent was my main point of contact, and sent me CONSTANT updates regarding the deliberation with the insurance company, and his shop's progress on my vehicle.
After picking up my vehicle, I can assure you that it looked BETTER than its pre-incident condition; where I was only hoping for a match to what it looked like originally. Exotic certainly steps it up, and is assuredly an industry leader in the Greater Seattle Area.
I will recommend Exotic to ANYBODY needing anything from minor surface scratches to full-on structural damage. They paid noticeable attention to my vehicle to ensure the utmost quality and my personal satisfaction.
Best Body Shop Ever. I had front end damage from an accident in which the other party was at fault. Brent and his team were great and always fought hard to repair my vehicle with quality parts, nothing less. He also kept me updated with frequent emails. It took a while, but it was well worth it because when I got the car back it looked brand new. There were a couple things missing when I checked it out, some small pieces, but without even batting an eye Brent ordered the parts and told me to come back when the parts arrived. That's something I don't think most body shops would have done. Another thing I really appreciated was that Brent dealt with the insurance company, I barely had to do anything. All in all Exotic Motors is a great place to get your car fixed and is run by great people!
Car repair, restoration and service..
Like ringlist says, I too was rearended by a multitasking idiot teenager. Crunched my car skillfully. Attention: This is NOT the so called Exotic Motors on 20th. Make no mistake. Only one Exotic Motors exists for the discerning client anywhere on earth.
The lads walked me through their shop in which I found numerous repairs in progress. Immaculate shop. They executed all insurance paperwork. Peter,Marc, Sean, Travis, Frankie and Brent went well beyond good service. Exemplary. They were fast, yet artistic in my resoration. Peter updated me daily about part choices and progress. Their work proved flawless. Peter loaned me his own car while the work was done. I've driven BMWs for 38 years. No shop even comes close. I'd offer my personal experience to any asking me. This store exists in rarified air of trustworthy competence. I recommend this shop with the highest possible complement. Go there. Be pleased.They love your car as much as you do. The Best. Ever.
Customer for life!.
I am going to write a review because they asked me too spread the word and because they are trying to grow through getting the word out about their service.
I feel like they deserve a bit of my time as I asked for a LOT of theirs and never once was thought of as a pest.
My story? Well you know that new car feeling? I do I still have one even after being in a horrific accident to my new Cadillac!
I only had it for three months when a *&^%ing idiot decided it was more important to talk on her cell phone than watch were she was going and I watched in the mirror as she obliviously rear ended me causing almost 20k's worth of damage to my new baby.
I screamed and yelled but the insurance company would not total my car. Then they tried to send me to "one of their shops" yea right!!! Like I would trust a insurance company to "do the right thing". I called me dealer, they said we use Exotic, I asked a few people who I know are into cars, Exotic again . Finally I looked online and did my homework and I have to say if I hadn't already had had the recommendations I would have been a little skeptical of 50+ 5 star reviews. I went ahead and towed it there.
These guys know there stuff I had questions and was really worried about it just never being the same. Mark there walked me through every thing and from the very start I had peace of mind. I told them I wanted to see it before they put it back together (I know, nightmare customer!) they complied. I told them I wanted to read test it before accepting it and signing off, again no problem infact they were happy about it! they said we dont mind showing off a little!
End of story is I now have been driving the car for a month and I cannot tell the difference in handling, I have washed and waxed it twice and the paint and trim is as it was.
Honestly, these guys fixed a very scary situation for me and DESERVE to do well reap the rewards.
Cons? none just the time frame but thats not something you can control if you want it done right
Great Work! Pleasure to Work With!. Wow. Great work and great service. I am very pleased with the work Exotic did on our Tahoe. Only 6 months left on our lease, we were debating on whether to buy out the lease or not...and then...the accident. Needless to say, the accident had us leaning away from buying out the car. But, Brent at Exotic walked us through the estimate in detail, and was very straightforward and respectful throughout the process. It was truly a pleasure working with him...and this was all before getting our car back! When we did, we were so pleased with the quality of the work done (and the condition, in which, the car was returned to us) that we practically feel like the car is new again, not 4 years old. It was as if we brought the car in for body work...and not only received the highest quality work, but got detailing thrown in for free! The work was done on time and Brent was easy to work with. Thanks Exotic!
Wouldn't go anywhere else!!!. A couple of weeks ago I was rear ended and didn't think twice about using Exotic Motors. I have used them before so I knew what to expect. My insurance company tried to talk me into using another body shop I don't have any experience with and didn't feel comfortable with so I insisted on working with Exotic. I am glad I did. The repair was excellent and you wouldn't even know the car was hit. I hate having to deal with this kind of stuff but Exotic makes it way easier.
OK so yes they asked me to write a review. No I normally dont bother but they worked hard for this so they completely deserve it.
I have had to use 3 body shops in the past 7 or 8 years. The other times I just was herded through my insurance companies direct program. While that was ok I did have to go back to those shops (all located in Bellevue) and get things adjusted and buffed.
Exotic Motors was definitely NOT just a run of the mill fender mender. This place is a professionally run outfit. From the very start they seemed like they not only wanted my business but cared about my situation. They handled everything for me. They were NOT amy insurance companies choice in fact my insurance company tried very hard to push me to their "preferred" place. I insisted and they quickly backed down. It was new to me but the choice lies in the hands of the vehicle owner NOT the insurance company.
The repairs were perfect in fact better than I remember the car looking when I bought it new!! The car was as clean as a whistle and the whole thing was handled with care and professionalism.
They also run a service place for regular maintenance called The Pit Stop wich I also have used and is equally as good.
I will recommend this place to my family , friends and anyone that will listen. Enough said!
