I am very pleased with this shop. I took my car in on a Monday morning with no appt. and they fixed it and the price was very reasonable. Highly recommend!

I was a customer at Cville for several years for both my Honda and Volvo. The gentlemen there are always honest, friendly and competent. Problems that had stumped other repair shops were solved quickly and often more cheaply at Cville. They often offer choices between replacing or reconditioning a part, let me know what needs to be done and what can wait, and once even asked me to take my car for a couple of days to make sure the problem (an expensive one) was actually fixed before I paid for it. A move 150 miles away, sadly, has forced me to find another shop.

My husband had his car towed to C'ville Imports late one Friday evening (about 7:00). BR and the guys were sitting around relaxing. When the tow truck arrived, BR asked what was wrong. He popped the hood, asked my husband to try to start the car, put his hand in the engine and tested a couple of things. Announced what the cure was, walked in the shop, got a new part and installed it in under 15 minutes and said, "Call us Monday with your credit card number." You don't get that kind of trust and service in a big city.

The sensor in my rear passenger-side door wasn't set correctly, so the lights stayed on and my battery ran down. I was leaving town in two days, driving the 300 miles between college and home, and had to run a quick errand. Upon realizing my battery was dead, I quickly called the towing service and made an appointment with the big Honda dealership in town for later that afternoon. While I waited for the tow truck under an umbrella in pouring rain, one of the employees from Cville Imports (I lived across the street from the garage) came out to ask what the issue was with my car. I told him and he offered to fix it, telling me that he'd be quicker and less expensive than the dealership. The tow truck arrived shortly after and agreed to just take the car across the street to the garage. I saved 20 miles of towing and a significant amount of time and money thanks to Cville Imports. I've been going there for my car problems ever since; I only wish I found them earlier.

I was told by a national chain that I needed over $1,000 in repairs that would MAYBE fix my problem. C-ville Imports was able to find the problem, and fix it for less than $200. They also sold me the new part I needed for less than what it cost them to purchase it. I also really enjoyed doing business with them as they didn't seem rushed like many other places. I highly recommend them and will definitely be using their services again.
