I have an 84 Wagoneer that was not passing emissions. They discovered, correctly as it turns out, that it needed a new carborater. Reasonable price, reasonable time, it didn't pass emissions. They fought with the company that provided the carborator, put a new one on and it didn't pass. They were not charging me for any of the work of course. We went through this with the carborater company until they finally got the money back from that company, went to another company put different sized jets on the carborater and took it down to emissions they waited in line and the vehicle passed. I am now driving my cool Wagoneer with clean emissions and they didn't charge me any more than the original price. I am sure they lost money in labor and parts. They went to such a great degree to make me happy that I would recommend them to anyone.

Charlie Wolford, the owner, runs the front of the shop -- so he is always there to answer questions & provide commentary on cars, local politics, national politics & the lack of customer service at banks! I use this shop because the guys don't treat me like a dumb woman, & because they do good work for a reasonable price. My husband uses them for the 2nd reason, & because I don't complain about my treatment; he also uses the shop for his company's vehicles. Charlie will always tell you when there's a repair which he can't do (like alignments, radiator repairs, etc); he did a lot of investigating when I had problems w/ Chevy's DexCool, & tried to get the dealer to help me (they didn't)

The service at Tempe Imports is reliable, personal, and very reasonably priced. In all the years I have taken my cars there, only once was something not done as I had requested -- a couple of tail lights had not been replaced. When I pointed it out, Charlie had it done immediately and didn't charge for the labor or parts. This may not have been a great expense, but it's little things like this that keep me going back for all my auto service, large and small. I have witnessed the reactions of other customers who, like me, have been pleasantly surprised by the excellent service they have received at Tempe Imports.

We've been taking our vehicles to these 2 guys for 20+ years;over those years we've owned a Nissan, Honda, Chevies (pickup & van), and now a Toyota -- Scott & Dan have kept us safely on the road through good times & bad. Their small shop is always clean, & I (as a woman) feel very comfortable either waiting or leaving my car until the work is done. We've known a young mother, with very little money, who has had a lot of car trouble; the last breakdown we picked her up & towed her car to Dan & Scott. They fixed her car, & gave us a discounted cost on the bill ... & did all the work as a "fix it right away" job so she could pick up her kids at school. They are the GOOD GUYS.

these guys are great!!! My daughter is attending college in the area, with a 16 year old German car! I think Dan was a little taken aback getting a call from 3000 miles away looking for help. They got her car in early the next morning, even though it had to come in on a flatbed. And, they drove her to her campus that morning. We had a diagnosis by the end of the day. And complicated repairs were done by the end of the next day. Dan was great explaining what needed to be done. Gave me a solid estimate. And came in very close. I felt the costs were very reasonable. My daughter reports that Dan was friendly and treated her with respect. 30 days out, the car is running great. For a father who was able to jump out and fix what needed to be fixed, it is reassuring to know that my daughter can have her car serviced and will not be taken advantage of. There are a few other that will be need to taken care of and Tempe Imports will be called to do the work.

Dan is now the sole owner & mechanic at Tempe Imports --- we've been using this shop for over 30 years, & have never had a problem - especially since Dan took over operations. He doesn't talk down to me (a female), or assume my husband knows all about the car --- in fact, since I drive it the most, Dan makes sure I'm involved. We've had several different cars over the years, & Dan has done excellent work on all of them. His prices are more than fair, & he has been a big help with advice.
