Great, reliable work. Dwayne, one of the owners, is straightforward and honest. This is the 3rd time I've brought my car in and the first 2 times, I just needed a couple very minor things adjusted and he didn't even charge me. He even remembered me when I brought my car in the 3rd time for a rattling sound. I thought I had to get my timing belt fixed because of the code that came up on a Diagnositc check at Advanced Auto Parts, but Dwayne told me I simply had to change my oil on time! Whew!
Great, reliable and professional service...I have referred friends and family to them because I have taken my older high milage Acura there many times and received outstanding service for a reasonable price
Don't GO HERE AT ALL!! – Garbage!!!
Once again another mechanic in Orlando that has staged reviews. Any place with a perfect review portfolio watch out for. This place was suppose to replace a part on my Ford Explorer, which was most likely the shift solenoid. When diagnosed they finally replaced the computer sensor or so I was told. I ask the guy if the sensor could be just restarted. He stated NO! Now, paying for a brand new sensor of about almost 300 bucks and having it been replaced or so I was told I was on my way. The reason he stated was that the sensor gets "burned out" from all the heat in Orlando and it was a common problem here in Orlando. I being the dumb*ss schmuck believed this line. On my way I went. Only a few weeks later, while it was still not shifting right and now since the monitor was not working and reset, there was NO Check Engine light AT ALL now on my vehicle and no automatic shutoff. So, driving along on Colonial, it starts shifting wrong and lazily, then almost clunking, I manage to get it back to my driveway and notice a leak underneath it now. So, that part that was suppose to be replaced NEVER got replaced, and now I have NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT at all on my vehicle, so I have NO WARNING about when something might give out. So, if something goes wrong on my vehicle, since they only reset the whole thing without solving the main problem I can be KILLED without even knowing it. This practice of ONLY resetting the monitor is HIGHLY ILLEGAL and if this is the practice of this place in Orlando, it should not be in business AT ALL!! Another thing he said was: "Ford Explorers are tricky", well if they are that tricky then let me take it to a place that knows what they are doing. You should be reported to the BBB to say the least.
Professional, Reliable, Great Staff and Owners! – Joe, Dwayne, and the crew are the best. They fixed a fuel pressure issue on my wife's 2005 Mazda MPV that two other mechanics had failed to fix (and those failed attempts were at a great expense to me). When Joe found the real culprit, it was a faulty valve and cost me about $100.
They have done extensive work on my 1995 Civic as well...they know Honda and Acura like the back of their hand, and have bent over backwards to help me self repairs when I get in a pinch.
In short, their prices are very fair, and their expertise, professionalism, and customer service are top-notch. While in the shop, I've seen them work in plenty of last-minute repairs for customers at the end of the day, just to get people back on the road.
I won't be going anywhere else from now on.
Fair Prices | Good Guys | Goodbye Stealership – I brought my vehicle in for a timing belt, water pump and front motor mount replacement. Their prices are excellent, they use OEM parts and above all great customer service! They did an excellent job replacing the for mentioned parts, but I had an issue with my air cleaner cover.
Joe contacted me immediately regarding the situation. He was cordial, professional and was willing to meet me at the shop during off hours to rectify the issue. I was reimbursed for the price of the air cleaner cover and has made me a very happy customer. Excellent work on a tough job!
Thank you, I appreciate your business and input!
Great Service, Great Guys! – Hey, I had a problem with my transmission and had my car towed to this shop bc the reviews were so good. I spoke with Joe on many occassions about the car and what was wrong. Joe was very helpful and straight to the point, but he wasn't cold. He understood my finacial situation and did his best to make sure that I was taken care of and that I was getting quality service. He and his staff went above and beyond the requested service and saved me money. I feel good about dealing with this shop and definately will return and have no problems recommending others. Thanks again Joe!!
Thank you for the kind words, your situation was definitely a tough one with the surprises your car threw at us! I am pleased with the way your car turned out and I am even happier that you are happy with us, thank you for your business! Joe
Great Service! – I wanted to find a mechanic shop I could trust with my out of warranty car. Dwayne and company are always right there ready to solve the problem without excessive fees or adding any unneeded work. They give me my car in record breaking time and their work dependable. Their rates are always reasonable and they will use OEM parts when requested. They are great at troubleshooting, too! I highly recommend this repair shop.
Honesty, Integrity, Professionalism – My son and I drove his Mazda from Dumfries, Virginia. Before we left we did everything we needed to do with the vehicle: changed oil, replaced tires, checked it out bumper to bumper... Everything went smoothly. We got to Orlando and I noticed a not frequent but a strange noise coming from the engine... I said "shoot, what can this be?" A friend of my son said, "it could be the timing belt". Once again, "shoot". Well, to make a long story short. I was already back in Virginia when my son called me from Orlando. "Dad the noise became too frequent and louder". "Holly shoot"!. I started looking for mechanics reviews in Orlando and had the fortune of finding this guys. Joe & Dwayne treated my son very well. Still we were afraid the problem was serious and we're ready to get hit hard basically because we had no idea what was wrong. My son dropped off the car. Soon after that Joe called to tell him: "Don't worry about it. It was just a belt that needed some tightening". My son was relieved and I was even more relieved. So my son told Joe "I don't have a ride now, so can I go pick it up tomorrow?" Joe said "no problem". The next day my son went to pick the car up. Dwayne handed him the keys. My son asked "how much do I owe you, guys", Dwayne responded "you're good. No problem. Drive safe". So the guys diagnosed the problem. Fixed it. Kept the car overnight and the charge was? $ Zero!!!
Finding honest mechanics in this day and age is as impossibly difficult as finding honest attorneys... Please!!! So if you live or are visiting the Orlando area and experiment a mechanic problem with your vehicle, please DO NOT HESITATE FOR ONE SECOND... Drive safe and take you car immediately to this guys. You won't regret it. This are best professional mechanics in the Orlando Metro Area!!! Nice guys and on top of that honest and kind.
Top grade, affordable auto service – I recently damaged my front tire, rim, a knuckle, and axle brace. Several of my friends told me it would cost hundreds in parts alone from my dealer, and labor on top... I'm on a budget, mind you, and I don't exactly keep an extra two grand "on the side" for this kind of stuff. So I went online and searched for shops in my area, and thank God I found Orlando Import Auto Specialists!
They helped me calm down about the whole situation. They offered price options for used parts and new parts, and waived fees for some extra work beyond major repair. They told me what's a "must have", "good to have", and "not immediately needed". It's so refreshing to find a shop that is not going after as much money as they can get. I received daily updates on the phone until my car was completely done 3 days later (which would be at least a week at my dealer).
To make it all better, they honored a Citysearch coupon that applies to my repairs and made it even cheaper!
I can confidently say that I am this shop's newest regular! I highly recommend their service to all my friends.
Amazing Customer Service – These guys are the best. After a minor fender bender in a parking garage, I found myself facing a major repair, as a few key components on my axle were beyond salvaging. Since my dealership had charged me through the nose for so many other repairs, I followed a recommendation and took my car to Orlando Auto Imports. I was not disappointed. They went out of their way to give me the most affordable fix possible, without cutting any corners. They even rounded down the final total to an even number, saving me an additional $30 off an already discounted price. I would recommend these guys to anyone. They truly care about their customers, and put out quality work. Definitely worth the drive from anywhere in Orlando.
