John Shanderuk, 
Owner

Welcome to Minneapolis German 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 Minneapolis German Auto Repair 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 "German 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!

Terrence D. from Plymouth, MN, whose BMW was in for an auto repair service, on 3/23/2014:
"Great shop. Honest mechanics !"

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:
"Uptown Imports is a great choice! They were helpful, kept me updated and were super nice. It was definitely the best car-related experience I've had!"

Tj H. from La Crosse, WI, whose BMW was in for an auto repair service, on 1/17/2013:
"Uptown Imports has helped me out twice now when I've been in a pinch. These guys almost made my breakdown an enjoyable experience! They've been accommodating to my schedule and have done great work. Both people I've worked with at the desk know what happens under the hood and were actually easy to talk to about it. Their estimates were right on and they communicated diagnostic developments clearly as they went. The mechanic and the owner both knew my car well and enjoyed talking about it with me. I'd go back again (I have) and I am recommending them based on that experience."

Rich C. from Eden Prairie, MN, whose Mini was in for an auto repair service, on 9/18/2012:
"That if you want to deal directly with those who work on your vehicle, this is the place to go. I personally don't need a customer relations rep. I enjoy hearing what a mechanic has to say."

"These guys know their stuff, and were more than accommodating. I live over an hour from the shop, and they had no issues with servicing my car while I waited, despite being a busy day. Matt even informed me of a common hesitation issue with my car (that is completely normal) that most other shops would have charge thousands of dollars to track down. The honesty, customer service, knowledge, and level of proffessionalism I received at Uptown Imports has surpassed any other auto experience I have had. Thank You Guys!"

Jessie M. from Minneapolis, MN, whose AUDI was in for an auto repair service, on 1/8/2012:

"You guys do a great job at customer service and explaining things."

Gregg M. from Chaska, MN, whose VOLKSWAGEN was in for an auto repair service, on 9/20/2011:
"Went because of good reviews. Work was performed fine, but communications were lacking. I was unpleasantly surprised that the final bill was 50% greater than the estimate with no phone call or advice that there were additional things being repaired. I was also poorly advised of how long repairs would take. Overall not a good experience due to cost and communications."
