Here at All About Imports, Japanese auto repair is the name of the game. We provide everything from repairs to regular maintenance so that you can keep your imported vehicle in good shape.
Hours: M/F: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM.

What We Specialize In
Our experts specialize in the following makes:
We also provide services for all other Asian imports. So, if your Asian vehicle needs maintenance or repair, we’ve got you covered!
We’re up for tackling just about any issue your car may be facing. Here are some of our most common services:
Routine maintenance is a service too many drivers overlook.
It is essential for increasing the longevity of your car. It’s also important as it keeps you and your passengers safe.
Some people neglect routine maintenance because of the cost. They decide to save a little money by getting by without it. While it might sound logical, this thinking comes back to bite them later on. Neglecting routine maintenance can result in major repair costs down the line.
At All About Imports, our routine maintenance services are affordable. You receive our factory level service without having to break the bank.
During routine maintenance, we perform tasks such as:
- Checking and filling car fluids (coolant, fluids for wipers, engine, power steering, brakes, etc.)
- Cleaning battery terminals
- Replacing windshield wipers
- Inspecting the cooling system
- Checking tire pressure
- Inspecting hoses and belts
- Tuning up the ignition system
- Replacing the A/C filter
- Lubricating door hinges
- Checking the brakes, steering system, suspension system, etc.
Our Japanese auto specialists will also perform a complete inspection to make sure your vehicle is in working order.
We will alert you of any issues and make the necessary recommendations.
When you drive your car, being able to stop safely is crucial. Faulty brakes are a serious issue that you should address immediately.
Brakes don’t last forever. The brake pads use friction to operate, and because they are constantly rubbing against each other, they wear down over time.
It might be time for replacement pads if you hear your brakes squeaking.
Other factors could be causing the noise, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
When you bring your vehicle in, our Japanese auto specialists will get to work. We will determine if you need replacement pads and send you on your way in a safe, properly functioning vehicle.
Shocks and Struts Service
Shocks and struts are integral parts of your vehicle’s suspension system. They absorb bumps when you’re driving and help keep your car stable.
You won’t need to replace shocks and struts often. Most cars require this service maybe once or twice in their lifetime.
Some signs that you need to replace your shocks and struts include:
- Braking causes your car to nose-dive
- Speeding up causes the back of your vehicle to dip
- Your car bounces as you drive
- Your car shifts sideways as you drive
- You struggle to make turns
As you can see, issues with your suspension can cause serious issues. In addition to making your car harder to drive, they can wear away your tires, affect your gas mileage, etc.
If you are having problems with your suspension system, give us a call! Our experts will get your shocks and struts in working order.
Check Engine Light Repairs
You know those check engine lights you always ignore? Don’t neglect them any longer!
You might’ve gotten away with ignoring them for a while, but they will catch up to you. If you don’t repair these issues, your car may incur serious damage.
Older vehicles tend to glow with check engine lights, but cars of any age can get them. Take yours into us so we can see what’s going on and fix it!
Some common check engine light repairs include:
- Loose or broken fuel cap
- Old spark plugs or spark plug wires
- Worn ignition coil
100,000 Mile Tune-Ups
Vehicles that have traveled over 100,000 miles require more attention and specialized care than newer vehicles. To ensure your vehicle is still safe to drive, we perform the following tune-up services for cars over 100,000 miles:
- Frequent oil changes and tire rotations
- Timing belt adjustments
- Hose and belt repairs
- Compression tests on your engine
A hot car is the worst. Our auto repair specialists are prepared to get your AC back into working conditioning.
- Remediate a faulty AC system
- Repair units that produce air that isn’t quite cold enough
- Maintain your vehicle’s AC system
Car oil serves many purposes, including:
- Lubricates, cools, and cleans the metal parts of your car
- Keeps your car parts moving
- Prevents the buildup of deposits
If oil is already in your car, you may be wondering why you need to change it out. This is because oil doesn’t perform the same as it ages. In fact, the additives that keep your car parts in good condition tend to wear down over time. Without oil’s additives, it’s pretty much useless at keeping your engine in tip-top shape.
To combat decreased lubrication, you’ll need to get your oil changed. With each oil change, our team also cleans or replaces your oil filter, which will make a big difference in keeping debris from finding its way into your car’s engine.
There seems to be some confusion surrounding when you need to get your oil changed. Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut answer. Every car of a different model and manufacturer has different recommendations. To find the exact recommendation for your particular car, you can read what your vehicle’s user manual has to say.
Generally, you should be okay if you get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. This kind of regular schedule will prevent costly wear and tear to your engine.
Some vehicle owners tend to either ignore or miss the importance of tire rotation.
Shouldn’t all four wheels receive equal use when I drive my car around?
This misconception seems to make sense at first. However, your front tires receive much heavier use due to two major reasons:
- Your car’s heavy engine sits directly on top of your front tires.
- When you turn your car, the front wheels rub against the ground and create friction, which ultimately leads to wear and tear.
Just like an oil change, tire rotation should be performed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles to minimize wear and tear. In addition to prolonging the life of your tires, tire rotation also increases your gas mileage and decreases the chances of a tire blowout.
Why You Need Japanese Auto Repair
You don’t want to trust just anyone with your imported vehicle. You want to work with professionals who are familiar with your make.
Our experts have the knowledge they need to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape. We put our years of experience with Japanese vehicles to work when it comes to your car.
Have the Best of Both Worlds with All About Imports
When you run into issues with your car, you have two options.
You can either a) take it to your dealership or b) bring it to a local mechanic.
Many owners choose this first option. They find that dealership mechanics have more experience with their specific make.
Dealerships, however, are usually more costly. They also operate in a more mechanical, systematic way. You usually won’t get a friendly, one-on-one interaction with your mechanic.
Some owners prefer going to their local mechanic. Independent repair shops usually have more affordable prices and better customer service.
Independent repair shops, however, don’t always specialize in your vehicle’s make. The mechanics may not have the expertise needed to give your car the attention it deserves.

Affordable Access to Replacement Parts
There are many benefits to owning a foreign car. Asian cars, in particular, tend to be less expensive and more reliable than their American counterparts.
One downside of foreign cars is when it comes to replacement parts. You might have trouble finding the right components. Once you come across the right part, it will probably be expensive.
Here at All About Imports, our auto specialists understand this struggle. That’s why we have ready access to just about any part you could need.
