Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto Repair:
LT Foreign Car Service expertly diagnosed and repaired, in less than a day, the electrical issues with my 2001 BMW 3301 that had knocked out my entire dashboard mechanism. LT also fixed my A/C malfunction, which was also caused by a wiring issue, rather than having to replace my entire A/C system. This is an honest shop, with reasonable pricing who provide first class expertise. They deserve all the business they can handle by owners of foreign motor vehicles. Do not be fooled by the lack of parking space at their location. The German tech shop which had been repairing my BMW for many years would not address the electrical issues to repair the dashboard of my 2001 330i because of the complexities and there were no guarantees they could fix it. All I got from LT Foreign Car Service were positive results, friendly customer service and a new No.1 auto repair shop for my BMW. I can not recommend LT Foreign Car Service highly enough!Kenneth M Kniaz
This is the best place for any auto service Or to diagnous problem Very skilled And reasonable Save money buy getting it fix correctly, the first timeRobert Ross
I noticed I had a leaking exhaust near the cat at the front of the exhaust . Instead of telling me I needed the entire cat replaced, LT Informed me that the cat was working fine and that he could cut the bad portion out and do a welding job. This saved me a lot of money and LT was honest about it . I recommended him to anyone with a foreign who doesn't want to get hit in the head by the dealer or another dealer-like shop.Raymar
I found LT Foreign Car Service when I moved to Woodbridge a few years ago with an older BMW that needed a quick assessment of a problem and then repair. The problem occurred on a weekend when many offices were closed, but I found the highly rated LT's Foreign Car Service and was amazed that LT answered the phone and told me to bring the car in the next day. From the start it was clear to me that LT was truly an expert in all aspects of auto repair, and equally important, he is very conscientious about helping me decide what needs repair and what work could be deferred. Since that first experience I've been back to LT several times to keep my older (2004) BMW in good and confident running condition. I usually arrive at the shop with a new random issue or leak or noise, and LT always greets me with a friendly and professional attitude, provides a timely and rock-solid assessment and then delivers excellent repair service at a very fair price. If you're looking for a great mechanic for your foreign car I would highly recommend LT's Foreign Car service!Dawn Dunlop
Outstanding. Trying to find a single word to describe my experiences with LT is hard but I think outstanding fits the bill. When you have an older German car that needs service, you don't want to go to the dealership as you know the effort will be half and the cost will double. Trying to find a good indy shop for German cars is nothing but stressful. However, my stress is over...LT is a great place and the only place I will take my car now for service. Had him do a valve cover gasket replacement and run codes on my BMW 135, service is always outstanding and prompt. Cost was much cheaper than the dealership and overall he is honest, helps explain the best he can, what the issue is and the best way to fix it.. He's also straight up honest when he can't fix something (TPMS) and tells me to run up to another shop. I found my BMW guy; outstanding work and service.Mark Sparlin
No time wasted straight up front with the customer about cost an time to repair.Kenneth Johnson
Excellent and honest mechanic! LT is the best for fixing your car.Tashika Morris
Lt has been servicing my x5 for three plus years. VERY GOOD AND REASONABLE! Hard to find a Good Honest Mechanic... If you know you knowEzeh
LT, has been my go to mechanic for several years now. He's honest, trustworthy and his work is excellent. He keeps my 2010 Lexus Rx350, 140k+ miles running nicely. Brakes, shocks, sensor replacement and an electrical issue. He's even taken time out of his busy schedule to answer questions and offer advice about my car when I was traveling. Thank you! Thank you LT!Mary O
Lt is a great mechanic and trouble shooter, very easy to work with and up front with his estimates and sticks to it. I have a 2004 Audi A4 Avant 190,000 miles, a great car but at its age it needs some maintenance repairs. Over the last two years a lot of items needed attention. New clutch, AC, Alternator and Brakes. If I had not met LT I would not be driving my favorite car today. The first time I met LT I had an intermittent starting problem. LT has the latest diagnostic equipment and knows how to read it. In less than 5 minutes he solved the problem and replaced 2 sensors. While he was installing the sensors he connected a severed wire to my oil sensor at no charge. If you have an older Import you have got to meet LT. It is a little confusing finding the entrance since it is inside of the Public auto action lot. Just go into the showroom and ask for Lt.Ronald Barstow
I brought my vehicle to him yesterday morning because I had an issue with my exhaust, had a light out, and a loose fog light All which failed for my Virginia state inspection. He was so nice to access the problem and show me what was a matter. It was diagnosed that I had some rust on on the pipes which caused the leak. He took the time to evaluate the problem show me what the issue was and fixed everything. He is very fair in his prices and he is one of a kind an ace in his field. His work ethics is second to none. I am always a very satisfied customer and will always go to him with my vehicle concerns in the future. He even checked on me to see if everything was ok and how my inspection went which I passed thanks to his excellence. I just want to again thank him for always going the extra mile!Rich V.
bmw 645ci convertible LT was very professional and very proactive in communicating what he thought would fix my problem I had several codes along with engine malfunction indicator that warn me that the catalytic converter could be damage if I continued driving. so I took LT advice and even though the price was a bit step for my pockets at the time I know I saved thousands of dollars going to LT my car haven't ran this good in over 5 years I am very happy with the results. I have a mechanic now I can trust! Thanks LTBren
My son took my BMW to this shop and when I say I am truly happy and satisfied I mean it. Everything we were told that was wrong and that it would be fixed every word was true. The price was way below what I would have paid at the BMW shop. I would recommend this is the place to go if you want honesty and good service. Thank each and everyone of you.Evelyn Hendricks
I found LT Foreign Car Service online a few years ago when searching for a specialist to repair my BMW. Since then LT has provided me with expert service at a reasonable cost compared to other shops and especially the dealer. Most recently he replaced the front struts and performed power steering service on our Volvo XC90 Sport. After diagnosis LT provided us with an estimate that was reasonable and completed the work exactly when he said it would be done, as always. Last year I required brake service for my BMW and again LT provided a reasonable estimate and completed the work on time. For myself, it is important to know who I am dealing with when I conduct business, especially when its our family transportation. In my dealings with LT he has always been honest, dependable, and friendly. He is the only specialist I trust when it comes to maintenance on our vehicles. He's just that good. Personally, we have also come to consider him a good friend. Thanks!Greg near Lake Ridge
LT is genuine honest and provides excellent guidance. I went to take to get my Lexus GS350 for an emissions inspection over the weekend in Chantilly, VA they told me it wouldnâ??t pass and said I had an exhaust leak and it would not pass emissions. I called up LT and he told me that they want money and we set up an appointment to meet at the shop on Monday. I arrived on Monday at 8:00 am and LT was waiting for me. He ran a test for me and said it will pass emissions and referred me to a place to take it to. I took his advice went to his recommended location and it passed. Everyone has to be very careful out here people are blood thirsty for for money and will lie and deceive you. LT is a person who you can count on and is a shining star! I will always take my car to him for any repair and service he has gained my loyalty and trust. Thank you!Rich V. near Woodbridge VA
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.Douglas S.
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.Dai UT
You can't go wrong with this company, his price is unbeatable, his honesty is second to none great guy .He save me thousands on my SLGerry T.
I've known LT for over 10 years and he takes care of all of my family's car. He does great work.John N.
...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. ..Cynthia F.
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.Sanjay G.
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.V. Jackson
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.Fredia
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!Gil F.
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.Stephanie C.
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.Garland S.

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!!!!James
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.Vanessa M.
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.James and Tonya G.
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.Jerome J.
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.Anonymous
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.Chris E.
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!!!!!!Jeff B.
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!Sean O.
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.Mrs. Huntington
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.S. Monckton
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.Joe F.
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.L.Baker
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.Joe
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. THANKSHamilton
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.Martin J.
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!!!!Paul
Whenever I take my car to LT, I know that I will be given a fair price and assessment of the auto repairs needed. Most recently, the blower engine stopped working for the fan on my Q5, and Audi wanted to charge me an outrageous repair fee. So I took my car to LT. After a diagnosis, he said there was nothing more than debris around the fan. It worked perfectly after cleaning it. Subsequently, I was only charged the diagnostic fee, which was minimal compared to other shops. I have also had other auto repairs done for my BMW and my Audi in the past, but after getting quotes from other shops that wanted to overcharge me, I always go back to LT. You can't beat their pricing or service. I highly recommend LT!!!!V. Sterns
LT is alway professional and courteous. Always helpful with any issues that arise.Robert Teale
I brought my Audi to LT after getting the run around from the dealership. Where they failed he succeeded and then some. Turns out he replaced my engine and did a lot more than they ever would have. His quality of work is top notch. I am happy to say he is good friend now and forever. Thanks for all your help.William Harden
My bmw overheated on the way home one night and turns out my radiator cracked. I had towed here and he fixed my car perfectly and he was able to text me throughout the process. If you have a bmw bring it here!!Bre Dennis
They did amazing work!Tiantian
Mobile repair was right on time!Tovon Hamilton
LT Foreign Car Repair is one of the best repair shops in Prince Williams County. I can say that because I have tried several local shops and by far his level of expertise is top notch. I have taken many of our cars (including wife and daughter's) to him with problems that most mechanics could not have been able to identify and fix. I had a foreign car that required a true technician, not a shade tree mechanic. Not only does he know how to repair a car back to to OEM specs, he also has the latest and greatest diagnostic tools and software to analyze exactly what is going on with an automobile. I've noticed many of the reviews left have stated that he was rude and blunt. I have never encountered such problems, but the reason some reviewers may have said this would be because of his strong Vietnamese accent. If you can look past this, you will receive top-notch quality service and care.Teddy Nixon
