Great people, great service

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

Great service

I shopped around but am glad that I made the decision to take it to Sam Smyth Imports. Sam was upfront with me about everything going on with my car and did an excellent job. I got my car in a timely manner and was confident in the work that was done. I will continue to take my Audi to Sam Smyth Imports to have it serviced. I would recommend Sam Smyth Imports to anyone looking for great quality service.

Excellent Cost Savings & Service!

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!

TOP LAND ROVER MECHANIC

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.

Quality Service

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.
