Assessment Summary

When we got to know George's Imports, we were truly impressed by the experience and longevity of their technicians. They have been working together for over 20 years, have 128 years of combined experience, and 2 are ASE master certified. Add to this a manager who has worked in this family business for 36 years and you have something truly special. We also found this shop is equipped with the tools and diagnostic equipment we would expect to see in our Certified shops. George's has shown us they have everything in place to get the vehicles that come into their shop fixed right, the first time. Customer conveniences offered include after hours vehicle drop-off, Saturday business hours, and WiFi internet access.

Message from the Shop

George's Imports started as George's Foreign Cars, a Citroen dealer,in the 1960's. In 1975 they moved from the old Fina station at Hickman Mills & Prospect to Wornall Road. January of 1976 they became George's Imports a Saab dealer. 1995 saw them move from Wornall Road to State Line Road,keeping the name George's Imports. Due to the economy they moved from State Line in August of 2010 to their current location of 505 E 135 Street - K.C., MO. 64145, where they are an authorized Saab service point.

While a Saab dealer, 1975 to 2010, they were the only one in the U.S. to have an

Their mechanics say there specialties are: "Repairing, Replacing, Rebuilding anything needed from bumper to bumper - top to bottom with the knowledge and understanding of what's needed and where".

They recommended what should and should not be done based upon the value of the car.

They could be a little cleaner and a little more engaged with their customers. That's all I could really say because they do good work. They know what they are doing and they have experience. The whole customer experience could be heightened.

I want to help George's imports because I think they are a great shop and we have been going there since the mid 80's. We drive about 70 miles one way to go there. We bought our car from them. We're still using George's fabulous service facility. They're just amazing.

They always do a great job and I highly recommend them to anyone who has a Saab. It's always the best job in town. They do the work that's needed, and don't do work that's unneeded. Basically it's a great experience.

My spouse and I have been customers of Georges since 1995. Notwithstanding the fact that we feel like family, the service is second to non, period. Most of the technicians have been with Georges well over a decade, one nearly thirty years! One main difference from other service centers that sold me on Georges Imports years ago is that the owner, Brad (George) is a master technician.

Great place, great staff, great ownership......would recommend them to anyone, no matter what the make of their vehicle.

We have used Georges for years to have service done on the Saabs. When Saab changed Georges became a full service center for all brands. We took our Landcruser to them for a check engine light. They had the equipment to check the code and repaired the truck in short time. Whould I go back, Yes.
