Looking for an Infiniti mechanic in Seattle

I just purchased a 2004 FX45. It's in great shape and I love it, but will surely need mechanical assistance in future. I do shadetree mechanic stuff myself, oil changes and the like, but prefer a specialist for the bigger jobs.

In the past I've taken my BMWs to Car Tender or Fat City, Volvos & Saabs to Swedish Automotive, and my aging RX7 goes to a rotary engine specialist in Kent.

So...who's the go-to for Infiniti/Nissan? Anyone other than the dealership in Kirkland?

I prefer a service tech that specializes, not a one-stop-shop for imports.

Re: Looking for an Infiniti mechanic in Seattle

I dont want to spoil the mood or curse you but I live in federal way and there has not been a problem with my 45 that I couldn't fix and if worst comes to worst I would just take it to the dealer. but you should really have any major problems if you stay on top of things what's your mileage???? looking at right now.

Re: Looking for an Infiniti mechanic in Seattle

To clarify my earlier post, my FX45 currently has 65k miles.
I don't have maintenance records for it, so figure it'd be prudent to at least flush and change the trans & diff fluids and filter.

If I can't find an independent specialist, I guess I'll be taking it to the stealership.

Thanks for any mechanic suggestions you may have.

Re: Looking for an Infiniti mechanic in Seattle

Oh you should be good there is a shop in kent that deals with imports but Iwould rather go to the stealership for anything major. Maintenance I am comfortable doing on my own! Im at 70k no problems so far I did all the maintenance so far but need to get a trannyflush and I might do the differential myself but that is about it.

Re: Looking for an Infiniti mechanic in Seattle

I heard good feedback on http://zahntechauto.com/. The main mechanic there is Infiniti Certified mechanic. My 30K miles service is approaching and I am planning to give him a call.

Also a friend of mine takes his Lexus to http://mynwautocenter.com/ and he loves how they do job on his car. I am planning to give them a call too.

As for Infiniti of Kirkland, they are extremely overpriced in my opinion. Oil change is $250. Brake surficing $450 when it is $150 in other places. Detailing is $400 when other places do the same for $250. The front license plate holder is $150 because it is for $58K car in their words.
