Sam and Sams son has been an independent Jaguar service specialist now for over 3 plus decades! Sam Smyth Imports has been in the same greater Cincinnati (Reds!) Tristate location; serving Symms Township, Indian Hill, Loveland, Madera and Milford for 25 years. Now recently I learned some really neat Cincinnati car history on my most recent visit today to Sam Smyths imported Car Service. Framed on the wall in his office is an article from the Cincinnati Post & Times Star, dated December 1959 Automotive News, page 46, with the news of a new auto agency opening, that was devoted exclusively to sell the Jaguar line and SAAB from Sweden. The name of the company was the Imported Car Center located at 1635 Reading Road, with some of the officers of the firm being Robert A. Cline Jr., as president, J. Grayden de Camp as vice president (in his day, editor of the Enquirer) and Samuel M. Smyth (Sams dad) as vice president and general manager. A complete service department had been set up for all imported cars. Sams dads company was also appointed as distributor for BAP, British Auto Parts, importers of parts for all foreign autos. They were distributors for parts for dealers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia. Talk about history! Their showroom had been decorated by Samuel Aronoff! The tradition continues today. In addition to being an independent Jaguar and imported car service center, Sam Smyths son is the local parts distributor for the Moss Nisonger Car Group, supplying a comprehensive list of car parts, and premier car parts such as Spax, Lucas, Novus and K&N to name a few. Sams business has a lot of history, being established in Ireland in 1934, and his quality of work certainly reflects it. Certainly, old school quality that you will not find anywhere else today! Today, Sam still has factory Churchill Tools for repairing Jaguar automobiles from 1959 and earlier. This tools are no longer available! To me, Sam Smyth Imported Car Service has become a Greater Cincinnati Icon, like the Cincinnati Reds & Bengals, Montgomery Inn, Skyline Chili, White Castle, Saks Department Store, The Flying Pig Marathon, Lindner Cincinnati Arts Museum, Union Terminal, University of Cincinnati, Xavier University and Octoberfest! On a personal note, I did not know that Sam is an honorary member of all the Shriner Temples in Ohio, except for the Syrian Temple, in which he is a life time member! Sam has also devoted time to raise money for the Childrens Burns Institute located here in Cincinnati!

I had to look a couple of times to be sure I was signed in to the correct dealer review page. I am stunned at the bad reviews. I went to this dealership looking for a very specific vehicle. Not only did they have what I wanted all in one vehicle, unlike other dealers, but they had a better vehicle for less than the competitors. Dustin was the sales pro who helped me, and he did so with dignity, respect toward me, professionalism better than any other I had experienced, and was patient and courteous in answering my very intense and driven questions....complete with a winning smile! I also do not believe a female must have a male with her to get the best car deal out there.......Dustin proved my beliefs to be true. I had done my homework and knew what I could get for what amount. What I didn't know is that, with Dustins help, I would come away with even more features on my vehicle for the same (actually lower) price than I had anticipated based on the information I had from Consumer Reports, etc. This grandma-ma could not be happier if I had designed the deal myself! I really loved my previous van, but I believe my new van is going to be every bit as special, and more! Thank you Dustin, for putting me into such a gorgeous van, for a great deal! I would be pleased to suggest Northgate Chrysler Dodge Jeep to anyone looking for their next vehicle. (Hint: there was a drop dead gorgeous Jeep and a head -turning Charger in the show room just waiting for some one to come take them home!)
It was a wonderful experience, our sales gentleman Flint Herold has got to be the best salesman we have ever seen! Me and my husband came in and were treated with the utmost respect. Actually we were completely surprised by how we were treated!; we came in looking at used trucks and ended up with a new 2015 F150. We have bought many cars and know that dealers typically make more money on used cars and our salesman Flint showed us options on several used trucks and finally a brand new truck. I had never considered a new truck because I thought we couldn't afford it! Flint took the time to show us the details and the new truck was almost the same overall cost as a used truck that had 68,000 miles on it. Even though Flint made less money on the new truck vs the used one, he helped us figure out which way made the most sense for us/ the best way to help us, and not just the truck that made him the most money. Besides Flint, his manager Ed made us feel at home with no pressure to do anything we didn't want to do, as well as our finance guy Dave, the technology guy Keith and two higher up managers I believe are Jason & James all made us feel like we could ask anything and get an honest answer. Thank you all! My husband really loves our new F150 and we will be recommending Flint to everyone we know and to anyone looking for a salesperson who really cares!!
My 2003 A4 had a really loud rattling coming from the rear suspension, so I took it to Audi to find out what was wrong. They told me my rear shock was completely blown out and I needed to get both shocks replaced immediately, and that would cost over $1000. I took it to Mr. Smyth for a second opinion, and he managed to squeeze me in that day to take a look at it FOR FREE. He did notice some fluid coming from the rear shock, but the real noise was coming from some loose body work, so he put two screws in and the noise completely stopped! He was really helpful and kind the whole way through, and managed to fit me into his schedule. He also took a look at my brakes and realized they were in need of replacement, so I can bring in my own parts and he will install them. Ill only bring my car here from now on
If you want not only to BE smart then you want to DRIVE Smart (for two), so see Charles and his wonderful people at the Kings Auto Mall Smart Center Cincinnati. These people are terrific and the cars are beyond belief. They are the only Smart for two dealer in Cincinnati but since they are the best that's okay! These guys and gals are so SMART they know all there is to know about this cute little vehicle and they are more than willing to share their knowledge. I've yet to come up with a question they can't answer. They go out of their way to make you happy. They're fun to be with, fun to deal with, and they like to share the fun. Stop by and test drive a Smart for two - you'll have fun, I promise.
Sam has been working on my 1999 Series II Land Rover Discovery for over 2 years. He has repaired everything from brake pads, rotors, throttle positioning sensor (which corrected a hill decent/tc/sm error), AC lines, spark plug wires, and the like. The service rates are less than the dealer and he allows customers to purchase and bring in the required parts. He specializes in exotic, high end luxury vehicle repair and is willing to work on any make and model. Sam is extremely friendly, respectful, flexible, knowledgeable, and explains every step of the process in rudimentary terms. He is my Land Rover mechanic for life. I travel 1.45hrs from Columbus for service. Thanks again for everything.
I purchased my car from Joe Kidd and have had all maintenance and service work performed by them. I have found the staff to be extremely knowledgable, profiencient and courteous. I live on the west side of Cincinnati and recently had an automobile accident. When determining where to have my automobile towed to I did not hesitate to have it towed to Joe Kidd Mitsubishi to have the repair work done. Brian has been superb in handling all aspects of ensuring that the repair work is done to my satisfaction. In the future when I need to purchase a new/used vehicle I will not hesitate to bypass all dealerships on the west side and head directly to Joe Kidd Mitsubishi.
Sam Smyth Imports is 'the' place to take your car. You can tell from the minute you pull into the lot and park your car with the Rolls-Royce, Land-Rover, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Mercedes, BMW and Jaguars. That this is a no nonsense establishment. Since Smyth Imports is a small independent shop with low overhead they offer great rates too. Sam is the third generation of a company established in 1934 and has been in the same location for 30 years. Sam keeps my 1983 Mercedes 240D and my wifes Protege running like new. I love to look at all the cool cars while my car is serviced... It's like going to a car show every time I am there.
I bought a new Explorer for my wife and was very impressed with the level of service that I got. My salesman FLINT HEROLD was AMAZING!! and he was able to answer every question I had! I must have asked him a million questions for about an hour straight!!; on the Explorer as well as a new GMC Acadia and Mitsubishi Outlander. I was simply amazed that he wasn't pushy... EVER!!; was extremely knowledgeable and got me an outstanding deal! Now my wife has the Limited Explorer of her dreams and I am one happy man!! I would definitely recommend Flint to anyone looking for anything at the Kerry Ford!! SOOO VERY HAPPY!!!
Mike W in service was awesome. I just drove to town from out of state Friday night and had issues with my 08 Tahoe. I needed to return back home on Sunday. I called in Saturday morning and Mike said bring it in, we are only open to 12, but we will look at it. He put a rush on it and was able to repair my rotor. Then I picked up my clean car, the cashier offered me a tin of cookies, and I was on my way by noon. This is what service is supposed to be, thank you to the entire team at Joseph's. If I lived here I would be a customer for life. you will not be disappointed. #chevyrocks
