Darrin is a very thorough and incredibly experienced mechanic! His excellent customer service and attention to detail are commendable. I will not take my Lexus SUV anywhere else but to Thompson's Import Specialties.

It's great to have a reliable mechanic to keep my 2004 Toyota Camry running and in good shape. I've taken my car here three times so far, and all three times I've gotten quick, reliable, friendly service. I especially appreciate all of the information I get about what should be done, and what ends up being done. It is this kind of customer service that will keep me coming back.

Darin replaced a starter motor on my 2014 Honda CRV on 4/24/19. I have rarely given a 5 star rating to any company unless it is earned through perfect performance. I also agree with ALL other 5 star reviews. Darin began diagnosing the problem during my first call to him. A good sign. I requested an OEM part. His cost estimate was reasonable. Overall, I am not concerned about pricing rather want the service performed according to spec. Done right in other words. He does. Darin began work on my car even though I arrived 45 minutes before the scheduled appointment. The car is back to normal now. Darin is now assigned to maintain and repair my Honda for as long as he is in business. I keep reliable cars a LONG time LOL......BY THE WAY, some time ago I experimented using the local HONDA dealer on a few simple maintenance tasks in one appointment. Long story short I am never to return. Once and done. NOT recommended.Darin diagnoses THEN prescribes repair. He does not operate on the "replacement theory" of automotive repair, meaning he does not willynilly replace parts in an effort to magically find the solution like some other shops do. He THINKS and analyzes THEN suggests a plan. I recommend to anyone owning a car he works on to try him on your next maintenance or repair.

My 2006 Honda Element is nearing 200,000 miles, and after a decarboniztion treatment and valve adjustment, it is running better than ever. Darin, you are a sensei master! Additionally, your people skills and integrity are greatly appreciated.

New to the area and needed a little bit of work done on my car. Darin was wonderful over the phone and in person. He got my car in quickly and did the work for a great price and quality! So happy to have found such a great place to take my car. I will definitely be coming back for any and all work in the future!

Darin is awesome!! Always finds time to get my car in even when I know he’s busy. Less expensive than his competitors.

I take my Eurovan to Darin every year for service before camping season. He’s thorough, knowledgeable, and gets me on the road for a great price!

I have a 2002 , high-mileage Jetta TDI. Went in for a routine oil change (my first time going to Thompson's). Walked out with an easy solution to a problem that has plagued my car for two years, AND mileage went from 45 mpg to 51! Wow. Very much appreciate Darin's knowledge and his skilled communication of that knowledge. Happy to have found a good place to take my car for service. If you like to know what is being done to your car and why, this is the place to go!

Darin is an honest mechanic. I needed a wheel bearing replaced and he was recommended to me by a friend who has been using his shop for years. He was able to do a next day repair on my Subaru. I dropped it off in the morning at 9AM and it was done by noon. I will be back for more service when needed. Thanks Darin, you rock buddy!

Darin strikes me as one of the most helpful, honest and skilled mechanics I've ever met. Please, if you're trying to get your import car fixed, go to this guy. You WILL NOT regret it :)
