Kevin Eckler opened Foreign Car Specialists more than 20 years ago because he knew he could provide the very best in workmanship and a level of customer service that no dealership could ever compete with. Kevin was deeply disappointed with the service he saw at the dealership and wanted to help people receive the work they needed without being taken advantage of or taken for granted. From the comfortable and welcoming lobby to our policy of washing and vacuuming every car in for service, Foreign Car Specialists provide a unique and caring experience to every customer, including those who need batteries.

With a commitment to a stellar customer-service experience, it’s no wonder Foreign Car Specialists receives so many 5-star reviews. We are upfront and honest about the work we propose and have the years of experience and know-how to deliver an excellent experience in service and repair.

Take a look at what one of our loyal customers has to say:

“I really can't say enough good things about Foreign Car Specialist. They're always so courteous, and perhaps more significant... They are honest. My first experience with them goes back a few years when something very minor was happening with my car as I was literally driving by at 4:55 on a Friday night. As I pulled in I fully expected the typical mechanic response; impatience... rudeness ... The typical laughter because I couldn't diagnose my car myself Etc.... All of which I have experienced elsewhere more than once. Dealing with mechanics up until that point was a miserable experience for me... Right up there with getting teeth pulled! Haha!! Kevin, the owner, greeted me outside as he was cleaning up with a smile and inquired what he could do to help. He got right down on the ground in the parking lot to look under my car to help me with what was happening. He stayed late to take care of me and didn't even charge me!!! As I left I said "thank you so much for staying late on a Friday". His response? "That's what we do" WOW!!!! Needless to say I have been bringing my vehicle there ever since and every single experience is one that I trust... And has gone about as good as it possibly could. No return trips, as my car is always fixed right the first time. I would send any friend or family member there with a perfectly clear conscience knowing they will be treated exceptionally well and their car will be fixed properly.” -- Chris M.
