Walter's Auto Imports Repair Inc
864 State Road 25 W, Lafayette, IN 47909
I just had my Volvo repaired there last week and Walter is great! It is so nice to deal with honest, hard working people who not only know their business, but also love it. I would highly recommend them to anyone with an import; it would be in great hands. Keep up the good work!
Walter is the greatest mechanic I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He's fair, courteous, and far more knowledgeable than any mechanic I've ever been to. I don't take my car anywhere else. If you've got an older VW, this is the only man you should take your car to. Him and his team are by far top tier. Very very pleased by each experience I've had with him working on my car as well as offering advice. He's truly a great guy and a great, nice, awesome mechanic.
I haven't lived in Lafayette for 30 years I remembered hearing good things about Walter's shop back in the day. While on a recent (2012) Thanksgiving trip to Lafayette My BMW 325i needed a water pump replaced. Not only did Walter get me in, he was friendly and helpful. Walter gave me an estimate and did not exceed the amount he stated. Parts installed were excellent OEM parts. My car was finished on time, (it was also a Saturday) very important since I needed to return to Wisconsin for work. Can't say enough!!! Highly recommended!
sweet place!!! had tons of fun looking around at some classic cars, they sold me a car that they redid the engine too and it runs great. good customer service, my only problem was the amount of time that it took them to finish it up. i had to call them nearly every day to check in and see how far they were.
they also sell spare parts to nearly every foreign car!!!!! when my brother and i were buying my car, he was looking around finding some things that he was considering for his vw beetle.
WARNING: not the place to go for an American made car (thus the "auto imports" name).
Walter and his family run the best VW/Porsche shop we have ever encountered. He takes the best of care of my wife's 1972 911T and has always kept our VWs operating with top, safe performance. They also keep our daughter's SAAB running trouble free. They are absolutely the best!
If you have a German car, this is the place to go. Walter is very skilled and thorough. If there is a tricky problem others can't figure out, he will. He may work a little slow on the harder issues, but it's only because he gets to the root of the problem and does not skimp on anything. If it's something simple, he will make the time to fix it on the spot. What more do you need from a mechanic?
