“This shop was great they're knowledgeable, fast, and friendly! Definitely will recommend this shop to friends and family! 5 stars all the way!”
“great service! quick and professional!”
“Steve and his crew are awesome! Been taking my car to them for over a year now and have been very satisfied with all the have done. From oil changes and brakes to the little car troubles. They are very helpful and do great work!”
“Absolutely quality service! I grew up in a small town in which I felt I was always taken care of, and that is exactly how I felt with FAST. Steve and his crew definitely made me feel that my car would be fixed in a timely manner and affordable. People that understand and respect others time and money! I did not go without a car, as Steve was gracious enough to set up a rental car for me. Very grateful!”
“Great people. My 97 Nissan Maxima needed quite a bit of deferred work. Had one follow on issue that they addressed quickly at their expense. Will definitely go back.”
“I am very skeptical of auto repair service companies, esp dealerships. I think women typically are taken advantage of, and often have little recourse. I am incredibly happy with finding FAST !!!! I had several things taken care of on my Acura TL, and was very very happy with the service, employees and the price. I was given a ride to a coffee shop to wait, and when the work on my car was completed, Steve phoned me and picked me up. I will be a happy, loyal customer of Foreign Auto Specialists, so I hope Steve and FAST is in biz for many years to come!!! Thank You!”
“Very pleasant to deal with. It's nice to finally find a place I trust and feel comfortable with. Honest and friendly. This will be the place I bring our car to from now on. Thanks for the A+ experience!”
“Excellent service every time. I've taken my car there the last 1 1/2 years and happy to find honest and trustworthy mechanics. I appreciate their knowledge and attention to detail, fixing what is needed with expertise and at a fair price. Highly recommended.”
“My Mercedes SUV needed spark plugs and brakes. Foreign Automotive has great customer service and did a perfect job on my vehicle. The prices are more than fair, I was quoted almost twice the price from the dealer. Service was fast and friendly. My SUV is running better than ever now. I will most definitely be back.”
“Owner was wonderful and showed me exactly what was wrong with my car. Very matter of fact and didn't talk down to me. My son has cancer and they all showed huge compassion to get my car but and running. I would come here anytime and we will bring my husband's car here too for oil change. Grateful I bought a Groupon and found this place.”
“Fast, easy, and affordable. These guys completely changed my view on mechanics. I’ll never take my car anywhere else!!”
“This place is great. I got my interlock on my car from here. They treat you with respect and their mechanics are knowledgable and nice people. I would recommend them to anyone. Any bad experiences on here must be from angry people just wanting to rip a quality company for something arbitrary. I would recommend them to anyone.”
“Great experience! Always impressed by great first impressions. Jen (I believe) was very nice at the front desk. The appearance inside was clean as that is always comforting. The other plus was I am used to going to a dealership and decided to venture for basic maintenance. The cost was less than anticipated. I will not miss the dealership.
Thanks Jen and crew!
“Where do I even begin? Exceptional 5-STAR service from beginning to end. My only regret is I wish I would have found them much sooner! I will be going back to them regularly, you can count on that!
If its quality and great customer service from honest, hard working people, then this is your place!
Thank you again Foreign Automotive Specialists Team! My family & I are grateful to have you!
“Just moved out to the Denver area very recently, and with that comes a lot of necessary expenses. While trying to get settled and in to my new place and a new area I had a freak accident with my car. After an over night snow storm I got in my car real early to meet some friends and do some skiing. As I am about to pull into my friends house I drive down an unplowed road and run over some snow that had frozen over night. This caused my oil cooler and bolt to break causing a crack in the engine block. Bam, new engine needed. New to the area I didn't know where to go. I call Triple A to tow me away. I tell the driver my story, telling him I have no idea where to go. Immediately he recommends Foreign Automotive. He starts talking about how honest and good these guys are. I could only go by his opinion. So I said great lets go there. As soon as I get there, my car went up right away, they determined the problem and already had a solution for me and an engine lined up. I knew this wasn't going to be cheap, so I call my insurance company and when I told them what I needed, they were quick to say it was totaled and they probably wouldn't cover the damage but they would still come take a look at it. He said he wouldn't be able to come out till the following week. But the owner Steve said he would meet him the following day which was Saturday. Which to me was above and beyond what he needed to do. So I had to sweat it out the next 24 hours till the insurance company would call me and tell me if they would cover me or not. I finally get a call, with my fingers crossed and holding my breath he said 'Matt your a lucky man, we can cover you' He went on to say that 90% of the time he would have deemed my car totaled. He told me I picked the right place to go to, and he didn't know any other places that would have done what Steve and the guys at Foreign Automotive did. And for that I am forever grateful. I live in Denver but after this experience and how great Steve and the team at Foreign Automotive were to me I will always go out of my way to get my car to them. I highly highly recommend these guys for anything you need done on your car. Very knowledgeable and most importantly HONEST!!!”
“Found FAST on Groupon when the Jeep dealership wanted to charge me a stupid amount of money to fix my AC. I live downtown Denver so Broomfield is quite a hike for me but when Jeep surprisingly enough wanted to charge me an asinine amount of money to fix my car again I thought of Foreign Automotive. I called and told them what I needed, they offered to give me quote before hearing what Jeep wanted to charge me. They saved me $1000 dollars!! Not only did they save me money but Steve took pictures and showed me exactly what and how he fixed my car!! I don't usually write reviews but this definitely deserved one. Steve, Titus and Chris were very helpful and will definitely be getting my business again. Oh and I even have a credit for a carwash because it snowed today! Hell yea! :) Thanks guys, job well done!”
“I took my 98 Toyota Camry there for an oil change Groupon, it was a great deal. They made recommendations without being pushy, and spoke without using complex automotive terms. They even washed my car for free! Worth a try in my book, they are in Broomfield so they are the closest most affordable option I could find in that area. Thanks guys!”
“This is a great place to go for all your repair needs. They can fix everything you need done, and they do it quickly too. I dropped my car off on Tuesday and it was done the next day after replacing a timing belt, water pump, rear shocks & struts, and fixing my exhaust header leak. That's a lot of work in a short amount of time. I definitely recommend taking your car here, especially if you are a Subaru owner like myself. They even wash your car after they are done working on it. The owner is a great guy and easy to talk to. He will explain everything to you with no BS. I will definitely be bringing my car to Foreign Auto Specialists again.”
“Was out of town with no money. This was the only mechanic available. Checked out my car and didn't charge me. Diagnosed the problem but put no pressure on me to fix sense it wasn't a problem that kept me from leaving town. Was very nice and informative and took the time to show me exactly what the problem was. Said prob was 1 engine mount. But turned out they were all bad. Charged only 1/2 hr. labor because they'd already quoted a price. Overall they were available, attentive, and friendly. Would recommend.”
“The staff was incredibly helpful. They were able to get my troubled car in and repair it in a day. It was the best experience we’ve ever had with an automotive repair shop. They went the extra mile! We will be taking both of our vehicles into Foreign Automotive Specialists for all our repairs even oil changes.
Thank you very much for your help! We really appreciate the outstanding care and honesty!”
“I brought my car in from a groupon. They did a great job. I have been looking for a good shop for a while. I think I finally found one.”
“Found these guys on angies list. They did the 70,000 mile tune up on my toyota 4 runner. Did a great job. even gave me a ride home 5 stars”
“Honestly hands down the best mechanic I've ever been to. The owner was the one working on my car (I have a Toyota Camry) he was very professional, patient, and courteous. At first it was just to have a routine check up and he found little problems on my car that could of been fatal. He let me watch and learn what was going on while he was working on my car. Full of knowledge and also he straightened my crooked steering wheel, and did a full alignment for a very far price. I'm very impressed with the work done on my car, and I will be returning for any future work on my car. Excellent doesn't even describe the service! phenomenal is a better word.”
“I've been to them twice, once with an S-10, once with a Blazer, both times they did great work and went out of their way to make sure the work was done right. They even made sure I made it to work. Highly recommended.”
“This shop is awesome.”
“Customer Loyalty is Important to this shop! I typically do my own repair work, but I am getting to the point where I don't have the time to diagnose problems. I took my car here and they figured it out in 20 minutes and the price for repair was very reasonable. When I picked up the car they admitted they broke something in the process and replaced it for free. AWESOME! PLUS, my car works fantastic! Thank you!”
“I have been a frequent customer of Japanese Automotive for years. I have never had any issues with Mike or any other staff member there. Their service is outstanding and always professional. They are an honest mechanic shop and will always make sure the repairs they quote to you are for your safety and to maintain the highest quality on your vehicle possible. I highly suggest you bring any vehicle to them with the rising cost of service they have done well to maintiain fair prices! Definately a lifelong customer here!
Thanks Mike & Crew,
“I recently had the need for repairs on my 07 Nissan Altima. Being new to the area I asked some coworkers where I could find a GOOD auto repair shop in the Westminster area. I was told about the FAST shop in Broomfield. I found the number on line and called. I was greeted by a gentleman named Bob who was very savey and well versed on my problem. (My car was beginning to have alot of hesitation and was stalling on a regular basis) Bob put me at ease about my issues and explained a couple different things that could be causing my problems. He set up a time for me to come in, they got my car in to a bay in less than 30 minutes, and Bob called me within the hour to let me know that my catylitic converter (CAT) was causing my problem. He was ready with a quote and comparitive pricing from the DEALER, WOW, what a difference!! They took care of the repair and had my car back to me that afternoon. Bob came and got me at my job, and took me back to the shop to get my car. When is the last time your repair shop did that for you. I am really impressed with these guys, I even got to meet and talk with the 'TECH' that repaired my vehicle,Ken, a very sharp guy and seemed to really know his stuff. He has numerous awards on the wall to demonstrate it. Can't say enough about these guys or the shop. I don't see myself going anywhere else for my auto repair needs from here on out!!”
“We've been taking both of our cars to Japanese Automotive for years. The guys there do a really geat job. The owner, Mike, really cares about his customers and will go out of his way to help you. They do quality work. I trust them.”
“I have to say since the new owners took over the customer service and my car repairs have been the best. From a women's' point of view: they are honest and understand I do not know very much about cars (they didn't ripe me off), the office was clean and I felt very welcome, they were timely and efficient. They are my Automotive specialist and I recommend them to everyone I know.”
“Honest service. I had gone in to align my tires. He said it would be usless since my tires were worn out and one of my hubs was dented. He even suggested where I can buy an affordable hub and tires. Highly recommended.”
“I am incredibly impressed with the service and treatment I received from FAST. Steve was wonderful and took good care of me and my Acura TL. I will continue to support Foreign Auto Specialists, because they are extremely fair and honest. I have been taken advantage of by an Acura dealership, but thank-you FAST that will never happen to me again!!”
“Jen at the front desk was super friendly and helpful. Steve (the owner) was great! Very personable. They gave me a discount as a student because they could tell I was stressed about the financial commitment of getting my car fixed. They were very patient with me being indecisive. Steve looked up Car Fax for me and went over the previous repairs my car had gotten to determine if I needed the fixes they were suggesting. He did a free inspection of my timing belt (which is difficult to get to). The price was amazing for the amount of work that they did. They even washed my car before giving it back to me. They did a whole list of repairs in a day and a half because they knew I needed to get on the road for a road trip I was taking. So far the car has run perfectly and the air conditioning is like new.”
“I did my alignment here and all i can say is ( they done a very great job) If i ever need it again I'll go again. Technicians really try their best to adjust my wheels....they did it and the truck ran perfectly as it suppose to. Thank you....”
“These guys are AMAZING!! My husband knows a lot about cars and has always fixed ours, but didn't have the air power tools so we took our car to them. They charged us half of what other places were charging and even our oil change was half the price of tires plus! My husband is gone for weeks at a time and they have helped me numerous times with my car when he's been away AND drove me and my daughter home and picked us up when it was done! Mind you, I live over 30 minutes away! They are all incredibly helpful and knowledgable and we won't go to anyone else. Do yourselves a favor and see them!!! A+++++”
“As a woman, I have felt that because of my lack of knowledge concerning car repair, I have been charged exorbitantly on multiple occasions and talked down to repeatedly by those working in the industry. It was such a change doing business with Steve at Foreign Automotive Specialists! He was so informative and never once did I feel like he was being disingenuous. My car repair was done well, on time, and as quoted! I will return every time!!”
“These guys are really something different. I brought my car in a few minutes before they were suppose to close and they were more than happy to help me. Without hesitation they ran a diagnostics test and found the problem, stayed about an hour past their regular business hours to work on my car. They made me feel very welcome and the time flew by, before I knew it I was on the road. And on top of fixing the problem they threw in a tire rotation free of charge, by far some of the best customer service I have experienced. I will definately be coming back here for all my future car needs.”
