Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Verified CustomerSeptember 13, 2011

They were very friendly and my car was ready before they said it would be - it was ready early.

Verified CustomerSeptember 12, 2011

I was very happy that they explained everything that was wrong with my car and they showed me the actual parts and explained thoroughly what was wrong with it. They were just really nice.

Verified CustomerAugust 09, 2011

They were really really courteous and nice. I enjoyed talking to them. They were super good at explaining anything that I had questions about. I really like those guys - I'm just having a bad car experience. I feel bad that I didn't give them higher ratings.

moved to MSP a few years prior with an aging '98 jetta and uptown imports was recommended to me. The recommendation was well substantiated. The gentlemen at uptown imports always give an accurate estimate on the job needed to be done and give recommendations on what should be done. They are never pushy and always on time. They guarantee their work as a previous repair failed to fix the problem and simply repaired it again without cost.
