Import Auto did right by me. I brought in my 2005 Audi, it's 13 years old and pre-owned, so when the upper radiator hose blew, I wasn't too surprised. I must say that when I had it towed down there, Tim was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. He looked over the car while I was there and gave me his best estimate, a fair affordable price for repairs, and even sent me off in a loaner courtesy vehicle. Yes loaner, no rental car, no rental car fees, no rental car hassles. It had to stay over night because they had to have the parts shipped over first thing in the morning which I was ok with since they gave me another vehicle to drive so I could get around. Chris called me up the next day and was very polite and let me know the work was done and gave me the load out of what all was done and how to keep an eye out for later down the road. To which I brought back the courtesy vehicle with a full tank of gas to show my appreciation and as my way of saying thank you. This was honestly the best mechanic service I have ever experienced. Most mechanics are thieves and cheats that will tell you that your muffler bearings need to be re-greased and your piston recoil springs need to be re-compressed. Not this place, fair and honest mechanics that do good work for a fair and honest price. I was very pleased and impressed and would definitely recommend them to anyone owning a foreign vehicle.

As I was driving to work one morning, my vehicle began stuttering and the service engine soon light began flashing intermittently. Not a good way to start the day. After I arrived at work, I opened my trusty Yelp app and searched for auto repair places nearby. I found Import Auto Service nearby with glowing reviews so I called them up. They understood I needed to work and really came through to ensure I had transportation back to the office after I dropped my vehicle off with them. They quickly diagnosed my issue (I had 2 of 4 cylinders non-functional) and rapidly fixed my vehicle, ensuring I had my vehicle back by 5:00 pm the same day. They were even willing to stay late had I not been able to pick it up on time. I was given an detailed and accurate quote and upon performing the work, when they found a part which didn't need to be replaced they skipped it, making the final total come in much less than the original quote. I will go out of my way to visit this local repair shop should the need arise in the future. Great people, great service and just all around a great experience. (Who can normally say that about expensive car repairs?)

I came in on a Saturday (2/17/18) for an oil change on my Mini and was given the best customer service. Great location, great service, great pricing, I'll definitely be coming back. Thank you Import Auto Service.

Prior to purchasing a vehicle, Tim actually came with me to the small lot to test drive and evaluate the vehicle. He was meticulous in his assessment, and recommended a small repair before i proceeded with the purchase, but otherwise endorsed the vehicle. He is a brilliant and honest mechanic and i highly recommend him and Chriss' shop to anyone in need of automotive repairs!

Chris and Tim fixed my mini for one third of the price that the Mini dealership quoted me! Their customer service is wonderful too. They let me borrow a car from their lot while my they fixed my Mini for no charge. I would most highly recommend this auto repair service shop to anyone who needs import service. Don't take your car to the dealership when these guys will do it for a fraction of the price.

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.
