Easy to make appointments. Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Work complete as promised. Reasonable prices. What else do you wish for in a automobile service place? I have been a long time customer and I have always been very satisfied with their work. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for this excellent review!

Amazing communication and customer service! After receiving a lengthy diagnostic from the Stealership, I talked to my friend who recommended IAS since they work on Subarus. What I loved was that Bill did an initial inspection based on what I mentioned, noting that most items the dealership said “needed” to be done were actually fine. Once in the shop, he invited me to look underneath my car, pointing out what he saw. This is where they gained my trust. When they point at things and tell you how they can fix them. All in all, I got the REAL items fixed, and my car is running a few years younger. Bill kept me posted as updates came from the shop at a perfect pace. Bonus was that I also saved money. Highly recommend!

Thank you so very much! We appreciate the great review and wish you a wonderful week. :-)

I cannot recommend Import Auto Specialists enough! My car's starter died on a random Wednesday, and they were able to fix it quickly after running a diagnostic, even though they were quite busy. When they did the diagnostic, they also included pictures of the area/machinery tested - something I have NEVER seen another mechanic do. It made me more confident in their assessment and recommendations. They were very communicative and easy to reach, and at no point did I feel spoken down to or kept in the dark. They are absolutely wonderful! Will be bringing my business to them as long as I live in San Diego!

Haley, thank you so very much for this wonderful review-- it shows off all the things we hope to show about our business to each customer. Please come back any time your Accord needs some attention!

Of course prices for everything have skyrocketed, so I can’t complain about the cost since they did a lot of work on my 2011 Subaru Outback with 160,000 miles on her. Their communication with me was outstanding- definitely five stars! I’d recommend this business to my friends.

We are honored to serve, Janet! Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to take great care of you and your Subaru. She's a great Outback because you're such a great owner. :-)
