Jimmy and his son were very nice and understood the problem at hand. They got my car back the same day and had someone take me to work. My car is running well, i've been taking it up there for about 4 years now, and it still runs good. The prices were exactly how much i could afford, they don't charge an arm and a leg. They are very good at what they do and they do it honestly and effectivly, i reccomend all my friends to go there.

JIMMY HAS WORKED ON MY CAR FOR LIKE 10 YEARS NOW, AND HE IS THE MOST HONEST GUY I KNOW. HE RUNS A GREAT BUSINESS AND A HONEST ONE. HIM AND HIS SON ARE VERY GOOD AT WHAT THEY DO AND I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE TO GO TO THEM.

Jimmy has been in the business for over 30 years, and he first opened up with his father, and his father was known as honest abe! I've been taking my car to Jimmy for the past 3 years, i took my nissan to the dealer and they told me i need like $900 worth of work and jimmy did it for me for like $300, it runs like a new car. Its a family business, and they run it so well that i tell everyone to take there car there, they also detail cars and give people rides to work. I give Charlie's, two thumbs up. Chris Banyin

I have a 92 Honda accord, which has been the best car i've had so far, with Charlie's Foreign Car's help of course. :) Jimmy and his two sons Tony and Chris have kept this car running great for me. The give me a ride to work when i drop my car off for my routine oil change and check up, and the always get done the same day no matter what they do, i love it. In short, I recommend anyone who has a foreign car, and wants to be treated right and fair take it to the guys at Charlie's, they'll know what to do. :)

We have been taking both our subaru's to Charlies for the last 2 years. After going to Charlie's we will never take our cars to a dealership again. Jimmy & Chris are very thorough & fair in their pricing. Our subaru's have never ran better. Would HIGHLY recommend Charlie's! Very satisfied customer!

My ex-husband was Charlie's customer first - and eventually myself, my two daughters and my daughter's boyfriend all became customers. They're completely honest - they would tell me I didn't need to have particular things done and prices are very reasonable. Always had the car finished when promised. All of us have Hondas or Toyotas, and I recommend them very highly.

Jimmy is the nicest, most honest, most knowledgeable mechanic ever. Can't imagine going anywhere else.

Friendy, knowledgeable, efficient, reasonable and professional. All things that most shops aren't.

I've been going to Jimmy at Charlie's Foreign Auto for nearly 20 years. He's always been honest and competent. He will tell you if you don't need to have something done. A couple of times I have been able to take my RAV4 in and have something done right then instead of having to wait. Jimmy and his family are good people. The world needs more honest people like Jimmy and his sons in it.

Jimmy and his sons have serviced our stable of Toyotas for more than 18 years. They always do everything that's necessary to keep our cars in good repair, BUT they never do unnecessary work. Jimmy once told me it was tough to find mechanics who would only fix what needs to be fixed, that they were "trained" at dealerships to do as much work as possible to increase revenues. His shop's only drawback has been no place on-site to wait for your vehicle. But the work? It's first rate!
