Our Story -- Mark’s Japanese European Auto

About The Founder: Mark Wagner

Mark Wagner has been a power for progress in the automotive industry since 1976. For the first 15 years of his career, he worked at an auto repair shop and studied in Mainz, Germany. In 1986, he earned his Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering and used his qualifications to open his own business in Germany. Just a few years later, Mark moved his family and business to Bellevue, Washington in the United States. Since opening his first American auto repair facility for Japanese and European cars, Mark has expanded his operations to serve all kinds of vehicles! With each new endeavor on the Greater Eastside of Seattle, Mark has transformed the standards of the automotive industry. Today, his team of highly-trained and experienced technicians provides unparalleled auto services in Washington and Hawaii!

Major Milestones for Mark’s Japanese European Auto

In 1991, when Mark Wagner opened the first Japanese European Auto in Bellevue, Washington, there was no expectation that the business would grow as rapidly as it did. After doubling their business in the first three years, Mark’s Japanese European Auto opened a second location in Kirkland, Washington in 1995. In 1997, another location was added to the network in Redmond, Washington. By 2000, Bellevue Transmission became a leading resource for specialized transmission repairs in the area! The fourth location on the Greater Eastside opened in Issaquah, Washington in 2008.

In 2010 and 2011, Mark’s expanded their sights beyond Japanese and European vehicle makes to provide full-service detailing for all cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, motorhomes, watercraft, and more.

The latest addition to the network of Mark’s Japanese European Auto came in 2015 when a location was opened in Kaneohe, Hawaii. In the span of 25 years, 5 state-of-the-art auto repair facilities were created to serve drivers of Japanese and European vehicles with the level of care their cars deserved!
