You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto Repair:

If you're tired of the run-around and sky high prices at your dealership, give LT a call. He has worked on both my Subaru and Volvo, and we have found him extremely reliable, more than fair with his prices, and timely in his work. He has regularly been a sanity check for all the things the dealership service departments insist should be fixed right now, and allows us to make smart decisions with our money. We like him very much and highly recommend him for your auto repair needs.

LT is an experienced and dependable mechanic, he has great skills and tools to troubleshoot and pinpoint to the problem (no extra work or part replacement for something we don't really need!!). The price is very reasonable and much lower than dealer price or elsewhere. LT always makes me and other customers very happy and satisfied of the great work performed. I'm very happy to recommend LT to all my friends for any type of auto repair.

...For all of those foreign car owners who are looking for the best mechanic in Northern VA, look no further than LT. I drive 50 minutes to have LT work on my car because he has won my confidence time and time again. ..

LT's service is top-of-the-line. He is professional, courteous and honest with better than fair prices. I own a BMW X3 and I shopped around until I found LT. His service and prices can't be beat. I find LT to be friendly, honest and expertly knowledgeable when it comes to repairs for my car. I find him trustworthy he delivers what he promises. I highly recommend LT and his team. My BMW would not start. LT diagnosed the problem and got it started. He also gave me tips on other minor maintenance that was needed. His price was far below what the dealer charges and he is honest. I will use LT from now on for all my repair needs.

This is the only man that I will let touch my cars.... 2008 BMW 7 series. I was ready to give up on this smoking engine. LT got it fixed (valve stem seal) and came in at less than half of what the dealer wanted!!!!

PJ G.


LT Foreign Car Services is the best. I couldn't start my BMW X5 due to an electrical problem. The technician quickly diagnosed the problem and was able to get the truck started. He was fair and honest. I will use LT for my repair needs again.

I am extremely pleased with the service on my 2006 Volvo S40. I had a problem with a noise for a long time and several mechanics were not able to fix it. LT immediately identified the problem, and in addition, fixed my long time A/C problem. Superb service and prices are great for servicing foreign cars. I would highly recommend LT for your service. He has tools to service your car's need.

I PURCHASED MY B 2006 BMW X3 A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO. IT STARTED LEAKING FLUIDS AND RUNNING ROUGH A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. I FOUND LT AUTOMOTIVE ONLINE AND DECIDED TO GIVE HIM A TRY. I NEEDED A SPECIALIST. IT WAS BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I COULD HAVE MADE. LT DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM, REPLACED WRONG PARTS FOR MANUFACTURER PARTS AND CLEANED UP THE PROBLEMS WITH A ONE-DAY TURN-AROUND. HIS PRICES ARE MORE THAN FAIR AND HE GIVES QUALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE LIKE NONE OTHER. HE IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL!

Our 2003 Audi Allroad would not start on Sunday (Mothers Day) and was towed to a local repair shop in Springfield. I was told that the timing belt was shot, no compression, and that I needed a new engine, $5000, $6000, terrible news. The next morning I found LT Foreign Car Specialist on the web, made a phone call and wound up talking to LT himself. He asked several questions specific to the car not starting and basically he said he doesn't believe it too be a timing belt issue. I had it towed to his shop in Manasas where he diagnosed the problem to be a water sensor. I needed a timing belt anyway, 125,000 miles on the car & never did it. What a difference in price and the Audi runs like its brand new. LT is a professional who knows what he is talking about, even more important he is honest.

Mr. LT, I would like to thank you very much for repairing my 1998 Volvo S70 and my 2003 Chevy Surburban. Your workmanship is the best I have seen in a long time. I was also shocked when I got my bill. Your prices are a fraction of what the dealers charge. Thank you again and I will definitely refer your services to all of my friends.

LT, Thank you so much for going above and beyond and getting my BMW back up and running again! It is such a blessing to know you and I am always completely confident that you will always diagnose my car's problem correctly and then repair the issue with great quality and efficiency. Thank you for the great work today with my oil leak! For all of those foreign car owners who are looking for the best mechanic in Northern VA, look no further than LT. I drive 50 minutes to have LT work on my car because he has won my confidence time and time again. Today LT took my engine apart to repair an oil leak and the total cost was unbelievably under $300 INCLUDING the new part! Wow!!! Last year my car was having a hard time starting and a local mechanic told me that I would need a brand new alternator and other work, in order to get my car running smoothly again. According to this other mechanic, the total cost would be approximately $1000 (we all know that this means OVER $1000). I was able to get my car to LT, he checked my car, replaced the battery, and my car was as good as new. My total cost Less than 1 hour of labor! Finally an honest mechanic and a huge savings to my bank account! It is because of LT's honesty, great prices, and amazing quality of service, that I will only take my BMW to him. I recommend LT's auto service to everyone, and would be happy to be used as a reference. It is because of LT's exceptional service that 50 minutes is well worth the drive to have my car maintained by LT! Thank you LT!!!!

Before coming to LT Foreign Car Specialist, I used to have a lot of problems with my car. No one wanted to work on it, because they said that they are too difficult to fix. LT Foreign Car Specialist was recommend to me by another competitor's garage. He said, If you want your car fix right the first time, good price, and an honest person, call LT Foreign Car Specialist. He wrote down the number on a piece of paper and handed it to me. I called LT Foreign Car Specialist took my car to him and I have been a customer every since it has been a least 3 years now and I will not go anywhere else. I happily give out LT Foreign Car Specialist card. They can fix any kind of problem-They don't give up!! LT Foreign Car Specialist has looked after my 2001 Audi A4.

I have been a customer of LT Foreign Car Specialist for over 12 years and have always been completely satisfied with his outstanding automotive knowledge and workmanship. Recently, I took my son's 2001 VW GTI to LT Foreign Car Specialist with an air conditioner (a/c) problem. I had been told by another auto repair shop that I was going to need a new a/c compressor and it would cost over $600 plus labor. LT fixed the problem by replacing a fuse. His honesty and commitment to providing a quality service are impeccable. His prices are very reasonable and lower than his competitors. Over the years LT Foreign Car Specialist has serviced my 1981 Mercedes, 1985 Honda, 1987 Acura Integra, 1987 Mazda, 2001 Acura TL, and 2001 VW GTI. I have a new 2010 Honda Accord that, when the need arises, will visit LT in the future.

Mr. D. Vogt


LT to repair your vehicle. We had unknown issues with my 2007 X5 that would not start. LT worked endlessly, took the car apart, ruled out every scenario and diagnosed the car. LT really worked and worked on getting my car working again. He took his time and my husband saw the car when lots of parts were removed and is completely amazed at the fact that someone could put the car with all of the tiny parts he saw back together again. If I had gone to the BMW Dealership we would be completely broke with all of the time LT put into diagnosing our car. We highly recommend LT!! We are customers for life.

I seldom write testimonials for people but I really felt the need to tell people about LT. I have a 2006 Audi A8L and I was told by the Audi dealer that I needed a new compressor at a cost of $2700.00. I called LT and asked him run a diagnostics on my car, when he did we found out the compressor was not bad. LT found out that just a fuse for the compressor was bad and he replaced it and did it all for $168.00. I want to stress something very important here LT had my car for 3 days and he easily could have said that it took him many hours to examine my car and charged me a much higher bill. I would have paid $1000.00 and not asked any questions but it just shows that LT is an honest man and you can believe he will get all my business in the future. I will also recommend him to all my family and friends. Honesty in the auto repair business is rare and LT is an honest man and that is saying a lot.

LT is the best BMW (or any German car) repair shop around. He also works on Japanese brands, but do now know about them. He is honest, friendly and thorough and his prices are MORE than REASONABLE. Think in terms of a fraction of what dealers charge. He used to have a shop in Manassas, but now works from home and mobile. He provides a written estimate prior to any repairs and sticks to it - no ticket shock when you pick up your vehicle. In short, LT under-promises and over-delivers while being most pleasant to deal with. If you love your BMW as I do, you have rocks in your head if you trust it to anyone else.

LT at LT's Foreign Car Specialist provides great service for great prices compared to the dealer. My wife and I have been taking our Mercedes to him for years and he has always done very quality work at excellent prices. If you want someone honest to fix or provide services to your car look no further than LT.

LT, I came across LT Foreign Car Specialist in 2007 when my 2000 BMW started giving me problems. After calling around to get estimates, I turned to Craigslist where I found LT Foreign Car Specialist. I took my vehicle over to their shop and when I received the call with the estimate, I was SOLD! I feel that great service and fair pricing is a must when fixing cars and LT definitely has plenty of both. There has even been times when LT Foreign Car Specialist rushed to repair my car in time for the holidays. As a customer I am more than satisfied and will continue to give them my business. Thank you for caring about your customers!!!!!!

Dear LT, Thank you very much for servicing my Mercedes! Prior to coming to you, I went to two different shops and both quoted me in excess of $2,000 in repairs. Needless to say, I was at my wits end and was seriously contemplating getting rid of my car. I am very happy I found your ad on Craigslist! I was very impressed by the layout of your website and more importantly, your rave reviews. I am so glad that I can now be on that growing list of satisfied customers! Thank you for providing honest quality care and only doing the work that was necessary, as opposed to quoting me for work that I did not need. I appreciated your explanations and look forward to continuing to get my car serviced there, as well as referring others, too. Even though you are fifty minutes away by car and two hours by public transportation, it was well worth the trip!

I find LT to be a very friendly guy and you can trust that the repair on your car has been completed professionally (What LT Foreign Car Specialist mechanics say they've repaired is 100% REPAIRED). LT Foreign Car Specialist are very honest with me with my car servicing requirements and only repair what needs repairing. The quality of workmanship and customer service was so good that I was quite happy to recommend my father to LT Foreign Car Specialist also.

I've had my cars serviced with LT Foreign Car Specialist for over 10 years now. I find his honest and trustworthy approach to fixing my vehicles very refreshing and his customer service second to none. LT Foreign Car Specialist has looked after my 1997 VW Jetta.

I recently retired from working as a taxi driver, and with the amount of wear and tear put on the private hire vehicle I drove, whenever I had a problem, LT Foreign Car Specialist was just the garage to get my taxi earning a living for me again in quick time. I'm very happy to recommend LT Foreign Car Specialist' services to anyone.

Recently I had a inspection problem on my car with a "competitors" garage (not LT Foreign Car Specialist), it failed,, I was handed an enormous list of advisory work that "apparently" required doing also. Under advice from another of LT Foreign Car Specialist's happy customers, who highly recommended them for trustworthiness and honesty, I asked for a second opinion about the advisory note and was shocked to find the $500 worth of work advised was not actually required at all, and all I really needed to spend was $80. This just shows that there are trustworthy, honest mechanics/garages out their and I'm happy to say that LT Foreign Car Specialist is one of them!!!!!!!! I won't be taking my cars anywhere else in the future.

LT has done lots of maintenance to my 2000 BMW M5. He's done a great job and I've had no issues with his work. I'm also going to let him do some items to my truck.

2003 BMW 745i, Lt fixed my alternator bracket gasket leak, leaky, valve covers, and spark plugs, I also had smoke coming from tailpipes when stopped at red light, no more smoke. LT, YOU ARE THE MAN WITH REASONABLE ESTIMATES/PRICES. THANKS

Hamilton


Year: 2001
Make: mercedes
Model: s600
Comments: LT is the man to see for honest, reliable, great service. He beats the dealers hands down. I have a Mercedes Benz S600 with a V12 and a Volvo S80 with twin turbo's and LT is the only one allowed under the hood.

He never sells you anything you don't need and is more than fair every time. He loves what he does and it shows in his quality, prices and craftsmanship.

He is well worth the drive from anywhere in DC MD or VA. Not to mention he is a heck of a nice guy to chat with! He has handles engine, transmission and electrical with no hesitation and on the Benz it is a great undertaking and the outcomes are right on at a fraction of dealer charges.
