Customer Reviews
Brandt Corcoran from Oceanside, whose Honda was in for an auto repair service, on 1/31/2015:
"Glenn helped me keep my old 92 Nissan Maxima running through 225,000 miles. He can explain what needs to be done and why. Not only is he an excellent mechanic he is also totally trustworthy. Takes care of all of our family's cars and has work finished when promised. Recently Glenn saved me from having to rent a car by replacing a failed oxygen sensor before I had to go to work at 9am. The other techs in the shop are also great mechanics and have been there for a number of years. Free coffee a nice waiting area, clean bathroom and surroundings. I would highly recommend Glen and his shop"

"I have been taking my car to Glenn since 1994, had a Nissan then, and since bought a Jeep Liberty, and still take my car to him. There are mechanics and there are technicians, Glenn is not only a technician, he is a master technician. His diagnosis is always accurate, what needs to get done, gets done with out any unnecessary expense. Totally trust him!"

"I've been a loyal customer of North County Import Specialists for five years. I liked how they answered their phones and all of my questions. That and their pleasant personalities won me over. They're honest, and really take their time with your car. If you ask me, they go over and beyond the call of duty. I don't give recommendations easily, but I highly recommend this shop. They are a trusted and very reputable business."

"North County Import Specialists is very good at reacting to emergencies. The first time I went there was an emergency situation. They got me in with no problems when a previous vendor had told me it would be a week before I would be in.

Also, they are very good when I bring my car in and am waiting. They are very responsive and straight up about what is going on. They are now my regular mechanics, and I have recommended them to other people. They came highly recommended to me, which doesn't always work out, but they have lived up to that recommendation. I have gone there for 18 months now.

There is also the benefit that they keep up on technology, so they can help you with any hybrid issues. It is also a great advantage if you have to get repaired and have AAA. They are AAA approved. For an auto shop the waiting areas are extremely clean. They keep the waiting area clean and inviting, and the bathrooms are kept clean. It is as pleasurable as it can be waiting there.
