They always do a great job at a reasonable price and the do it quickly.


We recently had auto work done at IAS, and as in the first time we took our car there, we were impressed by the professional know-how these people provide. In addition, they make every effort to complete the job as quickly as possible, and at a fair price. They have loaners too, which was a godsend for us, as we only have the one car. I would recommend this company wholeheartedly!


Import Auto has been taking expert care of my classic 2003 BMW 530i for years, always keeping it in tip top shape. The work is consistently excellent but just as important they are expert, fair, and straightforward -- I always feel like I'm getting a fair deal and honest information. Criss and Tim make everyone feel welcome -- the waiting room has as varied a group of people as the garage has a variety of cars, from American to Japanese to British and of course German. These guys keep me coming back! (And they also take great care of my partner's Prius!)


very friendly and effieciant


Import Auto Service is wonderful. They take my car in quickly, assess and fix often the same day, and always always cheaper than the dealership. I highly recommend this shop!


Chris and the mechanics at Import Auto Service are fantastic! Honest, reliable, efficient and reasonable. I highly recommend them for all of your automotive repairs and maintenance⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


I don't often leave reviews, but this shop deserves 10 stars. At every level both Chris and Tim go above and beyond. These guys along with their employees put the customer first. I have a 2016 kia sorento that had a very bad rodent infestation. This affected several electrical and fuel systems. They were able to diagnose the problems quickly and communicated the processes along the way. Patient enough to deal with my insurance company all while putting me, the customer first. Thank you for the honest and reliable service.


These guys have been the most honest. I have shopped around many times and asked many questions and found that these guys were always so honest. They do quality work and all the parts are above average. We have brought our Mini Cooper here and it runs so awesome for a 2005. We just brought my moms juke and they fixed that up too. Thanks Import Auto Santee for taking good care of your community by offering amazing service!


Excellent customer service and prices beat other mechanics I have been to...thanks


Great service without being pressured
