Edmonds Import Auto began as a European import specialty shop in 2008. Palmer area drivers grew to trust us with their exceptional vehicles based on our exceptional services, and we continue to be equipped with the necessary tools to perform expert auto repairs for your import. Today, we also service Asian imports, and we plan to keep building upon our European and Asian import services.
What you may not know is that our skill and auto repair experience can be trusted for all general repairs, so don’t hesitate to call us if you need a knowledgeable, honest mechanic for any reason. Maybe you’re tired of the dealership or the franchise service centers. Many of our customers were, and came to us and stayed with us. Our automotive talents also include Volkswagen TDI diesel repairs.
At Edmonds Import Auto, our team is always excited about providing quality maintenance services for our customers because maintenance is what makes cars reach their full potential. We’ll also keep your budget concerns in mind by making our services affordable. Please bring any questions or concerns you have about your vehicle to us, and we’ll answer honestly with you and your vehicle’s best interests at heart.
