Not only is Auto Village Center an ASE-certified auto facility, but its staff comprises a European auto specialist and diagnostic expert and technicians who share more than 55 years of experience. They welcome all makes and models in for service and repairs, including oil changes and maintenance checkups to make sure cars are running smoothly, as well as servicing brakes, transmissions, and A/C systems. They're also equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment, which helps them scout problems and preempt breakdowns or catch cars in lies when they're pretending to be overheated rather than go to the carwash.
Though they may be a long way from their country of origin, European- and Asian-made vehicles feel at home at Import Performance thanks to friendly technicians who service their nuanced systems and equip them with original parts. The team's 20 years of experience and specialization in foreign brands such as Audi, Subaru, and BMW becomes evident as they pop hoods and crawl beneath undercarriages to service brakes and engines and sing to transmissions in their native tongue. Although the company performs repairs, their number-one goal is to thwart problems before they occur through maintenance services that preempt mechanical failures and save drivers money on costly fixes.
