  • -Richard M.

    I have been a loyal customer of Import Auto Service for more than a decade. They are professional, responsive, courteous, and, most importantly, honest. Their work is of the highest quality and I have also found their service charges to be significantly lower than their competitors. I would strongly encourage anyone to get an estimate from the professionals at Import Auto before they decide to have work done by someone else. I have never been disappointed and what I value most, as a military veteran, is their integrity and and commitment to service excellence.


  • -D. Henley

    These guys know European Autos. I found them using the Open Bay app. If I hadn't used it, I'm not sure I would have found them otherwise. I needed an oil change for my Audi, and the dealer didn't have any openings for almost 45 days! I needed someone who worked exclusively on German or European automobiles and these guys fit the bill. All the other patrons I met there were there for service on their Mercedes, BMW, Audi or Volkswagen. Some had been loyal customers for some time. Based on my experience, I will be back.


  • -Amarjot V.

    Best shop ever, super professional and very reliable work and very friendly, if you need good work done, come to these guys.


  • -Ellen F.

    Absolutely awesome service! They got me in for routine maintenance on my vehicle. I was a little skeptical because it was in the back of a gas station, but the people were so friendly, did a great job and when I picked up my car they gave me gift bag with reusable shopping bag, mug, key chain and cloth to clean glasses. I was very impressed. Definitely going back here and recommending to all my friends!!


  • -Puneet S.

    Great place, they know their BMW's and prices are very reasonable!


  • -Maria M.

    The auto service is fantastic. I am so happy I found them. They initially helped me with my tire pressure as a result of a nail. They are precise, ethical, clean, and polite. I can trust them with my vehicle. The prices are fair, and the work done by them impecable. They know how to work on Ranges.


  • -Jujhar S.

    I really love this place. I have been going since it opened. I had the hugest crush on the son of the owner and I would come in after class when I was in high school and tried to talk to him. Then he moved and I never saw him again. Oh yea, the work is good and they usually hook you up with a free car wash.
