The mechanics at foreign Auto Service are very friendly and they take the time to explain to me what they either have to do or have done to my car. They specialize in foriegn cars so they have all the info they need. They work on Porches, Jags, BMW's, well anything foreign. I think they are great technicians

I almost didn't take my job in California because I had to leave the Foreign Service behind! Okay, that's a bit hyperbolic, but Stewart is an honest, competent mechanic. I have never had the problems I typically have at other shops, like finding the oil cap off after an oil change. He fixed the steering box on my Golf for much less than the dealer would have. Also, he has a couple of Rover 2000 TC's in his yard. Anyone who owns Rovers gets points in my book!

Thank Goodness for this part! I do not like statistics-gathering surveys. Anyhow, I don't exactly know the limitations of this place... my Volvo is generally reliable, but I've had them do brakes, muffler, an A/C conversion (to non-CFC), and they correctly and quickly diagnosed a post-accident driveshaft vibration problem that the body shop, the dealer, and the insurance company could not pinpoint.

Specialize in Volvo/Saab, but will work on any make. Great mechanics, but they are so busy you sometimes have to book a week in advance. When my Volvo 240 wagon died (for good) I "donated" it to them to use for parts, rather than sell it to a wrecker. It's been 5 years since I have lived in Minnesota, but I know a few people who still take their cars there, and say it's still great.

They are honest, fun and very hard working. Stu is always informative about what is going on with the car, and takes time to explain things thoroughly. They also help owners prioritize repairs to make maintenance affordable in these financially challenging times. I've been a customer for over 20 years, and they always stick by their word.

I have 2 Saabs and a BMW; all older than 12 yrs and I can't trust any place other than the Foreign Service to work on them. They are Saab/Volvo specialist but can work on just about anything. I do some basic work myself and use them to supplement and diagnose my cars. They are always helpful with suggestion and advice and always are able to get me out of bind when things get over my head. They are really knowledgable and extremely friendly and curteous. The whole group: Stew, Kris, Betsy, et al are always friendly and competent. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a competent, truthful and friendly shop.
