Awesome service- It is a pleasure to know these friendly folks who appreciate cars and use OEM parts to make them run right! They weren't offended when I brought in an older vehicle or asked them to hold parts so I could see first-hand what needed to be done. Competitive pricing, honest and direct answers to questions, and efficient quality workmanship and reliability are just a few reasons I will continue to use Import Auto Service as my primary maintenance and repair specialists. 12/16/2017
Happy Customer
Thank you Tim and Chris for doing a same day oil change/A service on my Mercedes C250. I learned that a few services I received from the dealership were either not needed or suggested when I could have went another 60k miles without the service. I also saved a significant amount versus using the dealership for service. Thanks again!!! 8/10/2017

I would recommend to any family, friend, or colleague. These mechanics are honest, hardworking, and respectable. Chris gave me a fair estimate and at the end he didn't tag on any random fees. Gary worked on my car and did a great job. Thanks again guys. 8/3/2017

Will I get an alert if my A/C fails?

Most of the time you will not get an alert though more modern cars with advanced electronics systems may alert you to a problem with your air conditioning system.

Why does my A/C airflow seem weak?

  • A hose may have come loose
  • The ventilation fan is no good
  • Mold or mildew accumulation in the evaporator core
  • Open seals (core case seals, evaporator core case seals, blower house seals)

Why is my air conditioning not as cold as it was before?

  • You may have a Freon leak
  • Failed blower motor and/or compressor
  • Failed condenser or evaporator
  • Vaccum leaks
  • Failed fuse, relay, switch or other electronic control
