Kay, than you for taking the time to leave us such a kind review. We appreciate you!

Verified CustomerSeptember 24, 2013

Sun Valley has always taken excellent care of me and my vehicle. Barry does a great job of explaining exactly what needs to be done, what it will cost, and how long it will take. Their prices are much better than the BMW dealership and their technicians are top notch.

Josh, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review, we know how busy you are! Thank you! We look forward to seeing you next time you come in!

Verified CustomerSeptember 20, 2013

I have had years of positive experience with Sun Valley.

Verified CustomerSeptember 19, 2013

My car is 12 years and some of the comments that were made (though not purposely) were uncalled for about how the technician didn't enjoy driving the car because it needed "this and that". I am a struggling mom who is trying to do what I can to keep my car until I am able to buy something newer. When I brought the car in - I had been without transportation for 3 weeks already and was happy to be able to finally be able to afford to get it there to start the repair process. The comment wasn't appreciated.

Claudia, thank you for letting us know about this and we are so sorry. This information has been shared with our staff and we will be mindful of our words in the future. We certainly understand what it's like when things are tight.

The quality of service is beyond reproach and I have come to trust the guys and gals at Sun Valley Imports as a trusted advisor for all of my automobiles. With the trouble we've had with other shops in the valley, we are happy to travel nearly 20 miles each way to ensure we receive the quality and honestly so conspicuously absent from most other repair shops.

Verified CustomerSeptember 04, 2013

Excellent Service, quality work, fair price.

Truly professional staff that care about the customer and providing the highest level of service.

Verified CustomerAugust 20, 2013

They are prompt, courteous, and professional. They get the job done right the first time. And the most important reason is because I can trust them to give the the best most accurate information on my vehicle and when and why I should be doing the repairs.

Verified CustomerAugust 14, 2013

Honest, upfront, plus a good reputation.

Their service has always been exemplary.

Verified CustomerJuly 11, 2013

I've been going to Sun Valley for 13 years - I'm on my 4th car. I always know I am getting the straight story on what needs to be done and they always prioritize the urgency so I can plan ahead. From a service standpoint, they really couldn't do anything better than they already do. I love these guys.
