I have a C230 1998 Mercedes and for the past year I have been dealing with my back break light not working. I am cautious about taking my car to the mechanic because of fear of being overcharged one for being a woman, and two just because I have a Mercedes. I found Import Auto Service on yelp and decided to call them. BEST THING I DID!! I was in and out in about an hour. Tim was honest and courteous! If you are looking for professional, trust worthy, fair, great price and knowledgeable mechanic don't hesitate to call Import Auto Service!!!

I went in without making an appointment and I was out with a new battery in 30 minutes. Consistently professional and direct, polite and compassionate. My family will continue to come here for all of our auto needs.

The best car service in San Diego area. I drive 40 minutes pass up many other service shops, just to have my car serviced by import auto. These guys are truly knowledgeable, trust worthy, honest and fair. The customer service is outstanding!! They always take good care of my viechles and the service is very quick. Great service for much less money then other competitors, what more can you ask for. Thank you for your continued great service, you have a life long customer out of me.

I rarely write reviews because I like to visit a place a few times before giving an opinion. Is the service consistent? Are they truly honest? Well, I've visited Import Auto Service three times now, and they are absolutely top notch! At the first visit, I knew my van was due for a major service, so I really priced it out. They were competitively priced and did a great job. For the next visit, I needed brakes. Again, they did a great job for a fair price. This last visit took the cake though. After visiting a car wash over the weekend, three warning lights came on. I had a feeling it was a sensor out of whack, but I wasn't sure. My vehicle has 125k miles on it, so anything is possible. I called Chris Monday morning, and he said to bring it in. After about 15 minutes he said it was taken care of. He handed me the keys and wished me a Merry Christmas! There is no doubt where I'll be servicing my van in the future. For the first time in 25 years of driving, I have a mechanic that I feel I can trust. Thank you Import Auto Service!

All I have to say is that these guys are awesome! My car would not start on a Saturday morning and I desperately needed to get somewhere. I live in the neighborhood right behind their shop so I walked over to see if they could help. My car is not generally the type of vehicle they work on as I have a 1961 Bug, but nonetheless they said they would walk over to my home to take a look. It appeared to not be something they could easily fix so the mechanic helped me push it into his shop. When he and his colleague took a look under the car, it appeared that a wire was not connected properly to the started so they bandaged my baby back up. The mechanics here in this shop were so generous they didn't even charge me. Their kindness and generosity go above and beyond. This really shows how much they care!

I would like to give a shout out to both Tim and Chris for giving me the best customer service. I was so scared when a light turned on in my dashboard and a noise coming from breaks. Both gentleman were so knowledgeable about my car warranty, how to diagnose the problem, and get it fixed with honest reasonable rates. And to my surprise, I was offered a loaner car to get to work because my car would be ready by the end of day! I felt taken care of 100%. I highly recommend this shop!

I've been looking for a reliable and competent East County mechanic shop to work on my 2010 Land Rover, and I've finally found it! Lower arm bushings needed replacement. Chris and Tim really went the extra mile to make sure all work was completed to their and my satisfaction. The mysterious clunking noise under the front floorboard and steering column shimmy are gone, and my Rover suspension feels as tight as the day I drove it off the lot six years ago! They stand behind their work. No more 45 minute commute to the closest dealer service center for repairs. Color me happy!!
