We have a Mercedes Benz SUV and after looking around San Diego were very happy to find such a great team at IAS. The service from our very first call through to the updates on our car and completed work were the best I've had in 20+ years of using different mechanics. They make using a mechanic an enjoyable experience which is awesome.

What kind words, Doug! Thank you for allowing us to take care of you and your Mercedes. Much appreciated! 👍🏻😄🚘

I was overheating on my way into San Diego to visit my family. I stopped and put antifreeze in. I was on my way for a short trip to OfficeMax the next day when the engine temp light came on YET AGAIN. Clearly I had a leak so I googled the nearest Mini Cooper mechanic and Import Auto came up. I called them and they agreed to let me bring my car over immediately. I explained to them the situation. They were incredibly accommodating. They were able to get my car into the queue for repair and went out of their way to offer me options, guiding me to contact my home mechanic to see if certain work had been done rather than just indicating to me that it needed done. Their work was outstanding - they got my car back TWO days later - which given the amount of work and my unannounced visit - was lightening fast - and i drove him with confidence in my transmission and coolant system in 110 degree heat and had ZERO problems. I HIGHLY recommend these guys - they are total pros and fair!

Thank you for your review, Jeff! It's so good to hear about someone's positive experience in difficult circumstances. We're looking forward to seeing you and your Mini Cooper in the future!

2012 Subaru Legacy with an electronic parking brake not engaging. I called several shops all of whom mentioned they don’t work on an electronic parking brake and I should go to a dealer. Excellent updates from the staff throughout the repair. Detailed explanation and estimates of worst case scenario and what they thought after initial inspection. They told me what they thought they had to do, did not charge me parts/ replacements that turned out unnecessary, and made it right the first go - very quickly. Thanks very much.

We are so glad we could resolve the issue with your Subaru, David! Thanks for placing your trust in us and providing us with such great feedback. Much appreciated! :-)
