Courteous, helpful service with clear explanations of needed work.

John McComb May 5, 2024

Had an A7 service done for a Mercedes B250. I very much like that Central Import assesses the vehicle and services only what needs to be done. A good cost saving compared to dealer service.

I use Central Import as my Go To Mechanics for my Audi S5 because the service I receive there is EXCELLENT. Desmond and his mechanics are informative , knowledgeable and honest . I had an issue with my Audi S5 that other shops ( and Audi Service Dept.) couldn’t figure out and Desmond and his mechanics found the issue and fixed it. The car runs great . Really Happy with the results. They really do , good work over there.I left there with Peace of Mind and confident in the work they did. I highly recommend Central Import to everyone !!!!

The staff at Central understand my cars and take amazing care of them. Desmond and his team of professionals get me in and out with little fuss and have me back out driving! Russell Day

With a 13 year-old car and 300,000 km on the odometer, things have started to go wrong. Central Auto was direct and reasonable in costing out necessary repairs to keep my vehicle in shape to continue making very long trips to the cottage. They have looked after the car since it went off warranty and will continue to get my business as long as the car continues to run.

Great service and an excellent alternative to a certain nearby dealer.

Jeff Bennett Apr 4, 2024

I have been taking my BMW to Central Import for over ten years now, pretty much after the dealer warrany expired. And at the beginning I wondered disdthese guys have the technical equipment to do the work a dealer could do. I needn't have worried. My car now has almost 250,000 KMs on it and I know absolutely, without Central Imporl Looking after it it would have been scrap long ago. I believe I get all the expertise that the original dealer could give me and It's a lot less expensive. The staff is personable, kmowledgeable, a real pleasure to deal with and I cou;ld't ask for more. Terry Coster.

Josh Beal Apr 4, 2024

Central Import does great work and managed to squeeze me in last minute. Really appreciate it!

Geoffrey Clark Apr 4, 2024

Dependable and trustworthy car repair facility. I have used them on and off for almost 25 years going back to Sam and his son Michael’s leadership. Desmond and Hector keeping the tradition alive.

Bradley Hardie Apr 4, 2024

Excellent service during my recent visit to install my summer tires. The team here is friendly and do great work.

Eric Khan Apr 4, 2024

Desmond and team always provide timely service, fulsome explanations of what is needed and the options best for the vehicle and your budget.

Jim Barbour Apr 4, 2024

Expert service for European models, though you do wind up paying more than a normal mechanic. But you get a normal mechanic to work on your BMW and a lot of times they can make problems worse, or just not find the issue. You're paying for specialized knowledge here.

Glen Busch Apr 4, 2024

Good service keeping my older BMW on the road.

John B Apr 4, 2024

Excellent service both for the car and for me

Clive Farmer Mar 3, 2024

I was looking for an alternative to the dealership servicing and very happy to have found Central Import! Quick and reliable service, Desmond made it so easy to book my appointment and feel confident my Mercedes would be well taken care of.

Maddie Emberson Mar 3, 2024

I have been going here the last year to service my bmw. I’ve done oil changes, vehicle diagnostics, replaced a lamp, and done a safety with them. Desmond and the team are honest and have very fair prices (especially given they’re in the downtown location). I drop off my vehicle at the start of the day and pick it up at the end of the day. They are very communicative through the whole process and give you updates as necessary. They even follow up later on to make sure things are still good. For those of you who work in the core, there is the street car stop right across from them.

Joseph Ylagan Mar 3, 2024

I used to take my Porsche to the dealership for maintenance and I got tired of inflated fees. I decided to give Central Import a shot and it's been a great experience ever since. I get the same certified level of service at a much more reasonable price, the service is easy to book and everything is done quickly. Recommended.
