Corky started this business back in 1972 when he left a VW dealership. He retired about 8 years ago and sold the business to Denny, Don and Mike. They continue to run the business as honest mechanics. There are a few such mechanics. I have used them since about 1975 for VW and Toyota auto maintenance and repair. To reduce costs, they will even use "used" parts when appropriate to replace broken parts that can be replaced using "used" parts from a "junk" yard. This repair shop has a faithful following. People drive miles to get their autos service in this shop.

'Found these guys through friends with long history of taking their vehicles to them, including an ex who is a "motor head". They've worked on two Toyotas & now a newer Ford Focus wagon for me. They are thorough & go for the most economical repair first. They are conveniently located in mid-city and even though they are ALWAYS busy, they will squeeze in a loyal customer whenever necessary. I prefer to give my hard earned dollars to these guys for keeping my wheels on the road.

True Story: I had an oil leak on my '97 Toyota Camry and went to a shop in the neighborhood that advertises a great deal on local TV. They told me I had two leaks, one of which was from a bad head gasket. Cost of repair? $1600. Maybe it isn't worth the expense for an old car, they said. Well, since they are mainly a tire store, I figured I'd get a second opinion. A couple of people on Car Talk recommended Corky's, so I went there. I waited by the phone, figuring I'd get a call right away with the bad news. No call. Late in the afternoon, they did call and said my car was ready. Bracing myself, I asked how much the bill was. "Well, they said, you had a bad PCV pipe, which happens in Toyotas after a certain number of years. You also needed a new oil gauge. Total bill is $57. Can you get the car by 4 pm? We like to leave early on Fridays." "Uh, yes I can be right over." I could not believe it. Months later, the car barely leaks any oil and I saved a bundle.

I have used Corky's for several years. They are hard working and extremely honest. Always have car ready when promised or earlier. Every experience has been pleasant. Return calls quickly and contact you as soon as they have diagnosed the problem. Had one 'very minor' issue after a repair, stopped by to see if it was something they had caused. Don't really know if they caused the problem or not, but, they fixed the item right then and there, with no further charge to me. GREAT GUY's!

I had an 86 GTI that I drove up to Minneapolis and back in the dead of winter when the heater core gave out. When I arrived back in town, I went right to Corky's as they had fixed a broken CV joint for me earlier and were great to work with. They verified that the heater core was in fact shot, but instead of charging me to fix it, they recommended I take it to the local VW dealer as there had been a recall on them. Sure enough when I contacted the dealer they verified the VIN and said it was indeed under an open recall for the heater core. This saved me $400+ dollars when they could have easily played dumb and charged me to do it. I ALWAYS tell anyone with a VW about Corky's!

Brought my 1989 MK2 VW Jetta into Corky's to replace all four struts. The estimate to replace everything was just as much or more expensive than other dealerships or maintenance repair shops, but since they have experience working on Volkswagens I decided to let them work on it. I was told one of my tires had a bubble in it. I replaced it immediately at Tires Plus (who took the time to show me it was not a bubble, but worn unevenly). Brought my Jetta back in for Corky's to work on my suspension. When I went back to pick it up I was never given the break down of the expenses, was not shown or told about any of the work done, and was told again I needed to get my tire with the bubble replaced. I still gave him my card to pay, and was told it was declined. However, my bank account shows I paid Corky's import auto service in Omaha in full. Even after showing him it went through on my account I was declined to drive out with my car. Corky's is holding my car even with my proof of payment. A few other red flags, I was asked if I had any oil on me because it looked a little low, he was about to disconnect and take out my subwoofer to get to the struts, and I had to ask and make sure an alignment would be done after the suspension was worked on because that wasn't included in the initial estimate. I'm positive I was overcharged and treated like an idiot because I am a female in my 20's. The only workers there are Mike Haynie and Denny.
