About Import Auto Specialists

Brian King opened Import Auto Specialists in 1996 in San Diego. He and his highly qualified team of expert auto mechanics provide outstanding auto repair services. His entire team, dedicated to providing you with the very best customer service experience possible. His passion for the auto repair industry began in early childhood and has never wavered.

Brian grew up watching his father work as an auto mechanic and learned from him. These early experiences inspired him to become a technician himself. Brian’s experiences with dealerships and other auto repair shops inspired him to open Import Auto Specialists in 1996. He wanted to provide quality auto repair services in San Diego with an emphasis on integrity and quality craftsmanship.

Brian started his professional career as an auto mechanic when he was eighteen. He worked in a Porsche dealer and an independent auto repair shop that focused on European vehicles. By the time he was 30, he was ready to branch out on his knowledge that he could provide his customers with excellence, and that is when Import Auto Specialists was born.
