Default Any one recommend an auto body shop around Beaverton/Hillsboro?

Front bumper skin needs to be replaced, looking for a shop that can color match WRB well.

Does this mean that all of the radio commercials by Leifs and using factory quality parts is BS?? Or does their workmanship just suck?

Any shop can use factory parts, but no shop can dictate to the insurance companies what parts they use. The insurance companies are told by the State what parts they can use.

Just do a couple google searches and that should tell you everything you need to know about their "service". Plenty of horror stories out there.

Their grade with the Better Business Bureau is an "F" for a reason.

Ok, so we established Leif's has a bad reputation.... so who has a good one?? I remember people used to use Bel-Kirk Auto Body for Seattle stuff in the past but that doesn't help us Portland guys.

(Ya I know I could just surf around on Yelp and the BBB and look for better ratings, but its nice when someone from the Subaru community chimes in)

I'll be taking some of my parts to RBP Collision in Hillsboro tomorrow for paint.

They came highly recommended by a friend.

I second this. As my 2017 just lost a fight with an outdoor step and would love a community vouched shop in Portland.

My wife's family has used Mackin's auto body on numerous occasions and have been pretty happy. Specifically the one on capitol hwy:
