M & W Auto has been in business renting and selling cars in Friday Harbor for thirty-two years. Wendy Pinnow, the founder and owner of M & W Auto, has lived on San Juan Island most of her life, having moved to the island from the Seattle area with her family at the age of ten. From an early age she worked in her family’s grocery store in town and at the family-owned campground, gaining first-hand experience in the challenges of business operation and customer service geared to the island community. Wendy opened M & W Auto in 1988, moving to the current location at 725 Spring Street in 1996.

M & W Auto is committed to serving islanders and tourists alike, offering all kinds of vehicles for sale and rent, including small, medium and large cars, convertibles and multi-passenger vans. Rentals can vary from half-day and twenty-four hour to weekly and monthly. Two-person Smart car rentals are a specialty. They offer a unique, fun and affordable way to see the islands. Smart car convertibles and hard-tops easily travel safely at all island speeds, no helmets required.  Rent any convertible with room for up to four people for only $79.95 for twenty-four hours.

  1. I applaud Wendy and her entreprenurial drive. I am so behind tourists using the smartcars instead of dirty two stoke Mopeds. I may begin a campaign of some sorts. Eventually the use of electric fun vehicles heeds to happen….but one big step at a time.
