  • I feel comfortable in bringing my car to this shop, as I know they will not overcharge me. Being a woman, most other places I have taken my care increased their prices unnecessarily simply because of my lack of knowledge of my vehicle. John and his crew have the honesty that a shop should have.

    Catherine N., Toyota Driver River Falls, WI.
  • You're both knowledgeable and honest about the condition of my car. I appreciate the fact that after identifying maintenance work required, you helped me prioritize the work that was most urgent.

    Erik H.
  • GREAT personal service. They listen to my problems & answer my questions in layman terms, so that I understand.

    Tessa Gunther
  • I like your low key, competent approach.

    Scott R., Volvo Driver
  • Very good. Despite enormous difficulty, James and John kept me informed of all changes along the way. It was helpful to have the car on the hoist to see the CV problems and to examine fluid related problems. It was useful to be in the garage and talk to the tech, to see exactly what was going on. Overall, good communication along the way.

    Evan R., Volvo Driver
  • After you couldn't fix it the first time you waived the labor to install another part I needed. You were very accommodating showing me what you did and gave me a loaner in the meantime. You guys did your best to save me money and make me happy. I wish all mechanics tried as hard as you do!

    Robert V., Volkswagen Driver
  • I trust them like a patient trusts a doctor. Together my two Volkswagens have a quarter million miles, Uptown Imports keeps them running.

    Claus P. MD, VW Driver
  • Very Seldom in this dot com/multiple choice world are our expectations exceeded. Their entire operation is very sensitive. They got it done.

    Nancy Krant & John Oliva, Audi & VW Drivers
  • Good honest folks with exceptional haircuts. I've been happy with all my interactions. You do what needs to be done and tell me of all my options. You don't push stuff either.

    Dave G., BMW Driver
  • Just a note to say thanks for the work you did on my car - it's doing wonderfully and I made it back to Milwaukee safely. It's a relief to say the least. Anyhow, if I should happen to be in Minneapolis when my car needs work, I know where to take it. Thanks again.

    Lisa B., BMW Driver
