Welcome to Uptown Imports - Foreign Auto Repair in Minneapolis, 
your Premier Auto Repair and Service Shop

A message from the owner...

Look... I could have hired some fancy schmancey ad guy to write this for me like every other web site you go to but it just wouldn't be from me! I know going to the auto repair shop and getting your car fixed can be like going to the dentist and getting a root canal (Ouch)!

But that's why we've made it painless and simple as possible.

I think Uptown Imports isn't like other auto repair shops. We've been serving Minneapolis, St. Paul and the Twin Cities Area since 1988. And our reputation has always been staked on being straight and honest with our customers.

That's why people call us the "Import Auto Repair Specialists": With a proven track record of over 18,363 satisfied clients over the past 25 years. But don't take my word for it ... just click here and see what some of them have to say in their own words!

"Deliver as promised. Affordable."

Jon P. from Apple Valley, MN, whose BMW was in for an auto repair service, on 2/21/2014:
"Without a doubt, the best shop I have ever taken a vehicle to. The first time I was there they fixed the problem and gave me a short list of things to address in the future. Over the next few months, my vehicle's computer informed me of those exact items that needed to be addressed. That honest assessment of my vehicle's condition gained them instant credibility with me. They have since continued to never disappoint after visiting them."

Teryl H. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volkswagen was in for an auto repair service, on 2/10/2014:

Jill B. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Mini was in for an auto repair service, on 1/19/2014:
"Friendly, professional, can speak in lay terms and explain repairs needed. Seem to have conservative approach, identifying things to watch. I love how I can keep track of maintenance and repairs with a personal private profile through their website."

Katherine M. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Acura was in for an auto repair, on 1/12/2014:
"I would recommend anyone to Uptown imports. Everyone is very knowledgable and they noticed how well I have maintained my car. Jason (hope I have the right name) said we would make it to 300,000 miles with my car!"

Bob S. from Saint Louis Park, MN, whose BMW was in for an auto repair service, on 12/16/2013:

"I would tell them that I use their services exclusively and have always been treated well and he car(s) have been perfectly maintained and repaird."

Anonymous on 11/25/2013:
"I would tell them that they are very friendly, and very honest. However, I was disappointed how my situation was handled. The repairs that they told me I needed were too expensive for me, and when I asked for only an ESSENTIAL fix (something to get me to the next paycheck), they were reluctant to give me an answer. It took me two phone calls to get any kind of answer from them about what I could afford. I consider this to be very dishonest and unhelpful, and it has made me question whether I will ever return there again. I felt very taken advantage of and as though I was not being helped as much as I could have been. Had they been completely helpful and told me how they could have gotten my car running for the time being, while also telling me what repairs needed to happen in the future, I would have been more likely to go back for those repairs. As it is, because they were so unwilling to help me, I am probably going to take my business elsewhere."

Asbjoern Sonne N. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 11/24/2013:
"Good service, competent, fair - probably not the cheapest for regularitet maintenance"

Martin M. from Minneapolis, MN, whose VOLVO was in for an auto repair service, on 11/17/2013:

Eric B. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volkswagen was in for an auto repair service, on 11/14/2013:

Gina W. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 11/3/2013:
"Jason took excellent care of my car, he solved each problem presented to him and he gave me great advice regarding a repair done at another shop."

E M Lippold C. on 10/27/2013:
"Don't know yet - will be coming back after my check-up, will have a better answer then."

Chuck L. from Apple Valley, MN, whose Volkswagen was in for an auto repair service, on 10/21/2013:
"You can feel secure that you are going to be treated fairly, and well, especially if you are dealing with Jason."

Kirsten on 10/20/2013:
"Friendly, honest, quick service"

Sean B. from Wayzata, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 10/20/2013:
"My situation is a bit unique in that we've been struggling to resolve this issue for a year. That is clearly a ding again your shop but, at the same time, you have also been responsive and helpful in trying to solve this problem. So, quality of work is frankly a question mark at this point; customer service has been good. As an aside, with this particular problem, I would also say that the other two shops that have looked at this haven't faired much better, so I realize that this issue with my car has been unique."

Stephen H. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Honda was in for an auto repair service, on 10/7/2013:
"Great work. Good explanations, showing of damaged parts, part warranties, reminders....really wish you had another location besides uptown. It's hard to get to around 5:30 pm."

Marti F. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Mini was in for an auto repair service, on 9/25/2013:
"Very thorough, take plenty of time to explain what's going on & what options are available, friendly, and don't push services or repairs. Repairs can be pricey, but that's what imports are about, right?"

Mike C. on 9/22/2013:

"After using a different garage for several years for maintenance, uptown imports is where I found real solutions for real problems with my Volvo."

Julie on 8/11/2013:
"Since I'm not very "car knowledgable" I have to trust these guys if I want to continue to keep my car in good shape. Some of the repairs have been expensive and I hope they were wise investments."

Eric B. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volkswagen was in for an auto repair service, on 8/11/2013:

Katie U. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Honda was in for an auto repair service, on 3/8/2013:

Angela W. , whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 2/6/2013:
"What can I say about Uptown Imports... they deliver "White Glove" customer service. I am hard to please and they hit the mark on every point... great service, clean facility, beautiful bathroom (as others have pointed out), comfortable waiting area with wi-fi, free bottled waters and a Keurig machine, magazines are for both and women (a lot of repair facilities have not figured out women get their cars serviced, lol). John (the owner) even will take time to assist you himself. Gone are the days of stacks of maintenance records... they provide you with an online portal where all your service records are stored as well as upcoming maintenance reminders. I have been in a few times now and am impressed with how you will be treated as if you are the only customer. Thanks Andi and Jason for taking such good care of me!"

Anthony P. from Ellsworth, WI, whose BMW was in for an auto repair service, on 9/30/2012:

Kris from Minneapolis on 8/12/2012:
"I will tell them that I had great service for a year -- expensive, but thorough. I appreciate that mechanics take the time to explain what they're doing to me so that I know how to best take care of my car. Most shops don't value educating their customers. But this last visit was atrociously unacceptable service, and I will not be coming back. I scheduled an appt for an oil change, tire rotation, and AC check. Was told just to drop off the car in the morning. Because I didn't have other transport, I had to run errands on foot and wait for the car. Service took 2.5 hours, and when they found a blockage in AC, it was until the end of the day to fix it. Then the wheel wasn't properly tightened and it fell off, so I had to come back another day for a replacement wheel. All said and done, at least 5 wasted hours of my time and gas $$ coming from across town. I'm moving right now and this was an incredible inconvenience and stress I really don't need. Absolutely ridiculous."

Doug M. , whose MINI was in for an auto repair service, on 8/12/2012:

Kayla from Minneapolis on 7/8/2012:
"I am extremely satisfied with their honest services and recommend them entirely."

Megan S. on 6/10/2012:
"I found my experience at Uptown Imports to be quality and fair. The price I was charged for the work done was below the rate quoted by nearby competitors. Although I felt I needed to call back to prompt a timely status update, the staff worked with my time constraints to make sure I got my car back by the end of the day. Other suggested work for my car was presented (and is probably needed) but it was not forced upon me."

Dylan N. from Minneapolis on 3/12/2012:
