I don't like writing reviews like this but I am an honest customer and other customers should know this. This was my first time going (import auto on ronson rd) to them 2/25/19 since they were recommended highly by family members. They did diagnostic in which I gladly paid and part of the diagnostic was wrong after I brought my car back to the dealer. They stated my 2013 BMW 328i radiator was seeping from the bottom corner on the driver's side and quoted me $1258.91 to replace. I just replaced my radiator Oct 2017 by BMW dealership. 3/6/19-WhenI brought back to Escondido BMW for 2nd opinion, they found no signs of external coolant leaks and my radiator is fine. Very disappointed & lost my trust and my family will not be going back to them.

I contacted Brian several times. He was always helpful. I had the high pressure fuel pump repaired on my 2014 Audi A4 for almost half of what the dealer quoted. They use OEM parts.
