I've had my oil changed there for a decent price. The people are friendly and kind about cars. I went in to inquire about installing an aux in port on my stereo. While they don't really do that kind of work, John steered me towards getting a bluetooth audio adapter instead, saving me over $100. He found his favorite model on ebay and printed it out for me to buy. I ended up going with a different model, but these guys are really good. 3/14/2015

Uptown Imports absolutely went above and beyond with their service. In addition to taking a look at my car, they looked into a replacement grill at local salvage yards (even though they don't do body work!), and checked in on their warehouse to get me quotas on snow tires (all in a 24-hour period!) 2/10/2016

I am alway's impressed with the staff/employees at Uptown Imports. Dave is my fave! Although he has had to give me bad news every now and again, he is always super helpful in explaining things to me, he calls me to confirm and make sure they are doing exactly what I agree on, with no surprises. Dave has a calm demeanor and is always genuine and sincere. I also received a letter in the mail (from the owner) offering me a free oil change! (which is not cheap with an Audi) There really were no strings attached. Just a "Thank You" for being a customer. Who does that? Thanks for all you do! I would highly suggest taking your vehicle to Uptown Imports. 1/21/2016

This was my first visit with my 2007 Saab. The customer service was very friendly. They were They were excellent in giving me an estimated time frame of servicing my vehicle. Dave was detailed and communicated well with any updates of my vehicles with repairs and gave suggestions rather than stating that I need to fix it. I will be getting a 2010 Volvo in the next couple weeks, this is where I will come when I need service. Good impressions made good experiences. 5/26/2016

A message from the owner...

Look... I could have hired some fancy shmancy 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!
