I knew what my Lexus needed on my maintenance list at the designated mileage. The parts were replaced, and I received my car at the exact time they designated the very next day. Wonderful customer service and absolutely no pressure. I will definately go back for my next service.

Work was always done correctly and promptly for 30 years.

My latest auto service required only an oil change, and no additional service. However, a service appointment within the past year traced my vehicle's performance problem to a fuel pump whose output pressure was slightly below the manufacturer's required level. When I arrived in the evening to pick up my vehicle, I was simply handed the key. There was no charge because this under-performing fuel pump had been installed within the previous year by Import Auto. It was covered by their warranty; they replaced it at no cost to me. They had purchased it new from the vehicle's manufacturer, and said they had never had problems with a new name-brand fuel pump like this. They continue to earn my trust. I highly recommend Import Auto to anyone.

I have been happy with the work they have done on all three of my cars for the last ten years. Honest, reliable and good service.

I'm very satisfied with the quality and prices of the repairs at Import Auto Repair and I recommend them.

April 17, 2013

As a woman, it is intimidating to have your car repaired, some shops take advantage of us and either charge more or suggest repairs that are not necessary. I have never had that happen at Import Auto and always feel that I'm on a level playing field. I have other friends who have used Import Auto for years and have always been very satisified.

April 15, 2013

The repair quality has been excellent. The service has been outstanding. The problem has been explained clearly to me. And every time I have taken my vehicle to Import Auto Clinic, it has been repaired correctly and I have been 100% satisfied.

April 09, 2013

Import Auto Clinic is fairly priced, the service is top-notch, and the staff is friendly and helpful. They have let me know what service I absolutely need versus what I can delay, and they take care of my car the way I would if I could do it myself. They are very trustworthy, and it is almost a joy to take the car in for service.

April 08, 2013

I recently moved to the area and was looking for a car maintenance and repair shop. It was my good fortune to have taken my car to Import Auto Clinic. The customer service is excellent, the work is very thorough, the prices are fair (not cheap however), and their communication with customers regarding upcoming services needed or checking in with the customer is very impressive. I take all of my cars there, regardless of make/model, and their service has always been excellent.

The owner and the staff are very friendly and easy to work with and the shop itself is kept very clean and organized which to me shows they care about their work place environment.

March 26, 2013

The folks at Import Auto are so friendly. I didn't have to wait long for repairs and service was very good.

March 25, 2013

I'm tempted to not say anything because I want to keep my wonderful mechanics a secret! These are the best I've worked with in 40 yrs. They keep me on the road and we prioritize the needs for my old car.

They went above and beyond to help my me and my boyfriend out when we ran into some car trouble while on a roadtrip through California. They are extremely friendly, knowledgable, and did everything in they could to help us out when we were stranded. I would highly recommend Import Auto Clinic. Thanks for helping us turn our trip back around when it went south! Mitch rocks!

Import Auto Clinic has been my my mechanic/repair shop for more than 20 years. As a single gal, it is important that you have a dependable and honest auto repair facility to go to - that's why IAC has had my business for so long.

March 12, 2013

Couldn't be more satisfied. Been going there for many years. They stand behind there work and they don't push for a "recommended" service. Excellent.
