Foreign SUVs.

When people think of cars and SUVs made in the United States, they think of the usual Chevy, Ford and GM products.  However, today several foreign automakers manufacture SUVs in the United States as well, such as Acura, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru and Volkswagen.  They are manufactured at various plants around our country.

You can research some of the great foreign vehicles that are popping up in the US.  ALL of them will need maintenance and the manufacturer will charge more and probably make you wait longer for much-needed maintenance and repair.  In today’s busy world that is not always best for you…the consumer.

When you commit to owning a new or used foreign vehicle you should look into your options for service.  That will become just as or even more important over time than the buying decision itself.  Why not utilize our expertise?  We are A.J.’s Import Garage serving all of the Topeka area’s foreign car service needs for many years.  Just call ahead at (785) 233-1000.

Catalytic Converter Repair.

Is it time to repair or replace the catalytic converter in your Mercedes Benz or other related vehicle?  One of the major innovations that helps to cut down significantly on air pollution from cars is the catalytic converter.  Beginning decades ago, auto makers began integrating these devices into the exhaust systems of each vehicle they produced.

Every now and then they malfunction, and you're faced with a trip to the mechanic.  You are doing your part for the environment by reducing smog issues in cities and congested areas where thousands of people commute daily.  It also helps protect the Earth's ozone layer from depletion.  Catalytic converters play a major role in whether your car passes or fails inspection.

Whatever the case, estimates on the repair of catalytic converters in German and other foreign cars in our area can vary wildly.  We hope that you will trust Topeka’s foreign car repair specialist A.J.’s Import Garage for all of your vehicle repair needs.  Please visit our shop for a free and fair estimate at 501 SW Harrison in Topeka or call ahead at (785) 233-1000.

A Used Car…one of Life’s Best Choices.

You can say that the 2008 collapse of the economy made it a necessity.  You could also make the claim that because new cars are made to last longer used cars have become a greater value in the 2nd half of the 2nd decade of the 21st century.  It’s true, it makes more and more sense these days to buy pre-owned automobiles.

If those vehicles happen to be German or Asian the value is even greater.  These models are built to last and it is common that you will be driving yours past the 200,000-mile mark.  Do your research and choose the best pre-owned car possible, but look toward the foreign imports for the greatest value.

When you have decided which foreign used car to purchase, the next choice is easy.  In the Topeka area always have it serviced by A.J.’s Import Garage.  Why trust your beauty to anyone else in the Topeka metro?  A.J.’s is located at 501 SW Harrison.  Come on in and get to know them or call ahead at (785) 233-1000.

How Long Do You Want your German Motor Car to Last?

We assume that you did not buy a high-profile car without expecting it to last a lot longer than a domestic make.  You can’t expect it to give you the longevity that you seek without regular maintenance.  All German vehicles absolutely require that factory scheduled maintenance be performed as outlined in their owner’s manual.

In very few cases, however, does the owner’s manual dictate that you should have this maintenance done at the dealership.  Two things that are generally understood about having all of your maintenance done there…1.) it will take longer and 2) it will cost more.  Is that really necessary to get top-flight service?

We say no!  We are A.J.’s Import Garage…Topeka’s premier German motor car regularly scheduled maintenance professions.  We strive to do the job faster with the same accuracy and to save you money.  Why not stop in at our location 501 SW Harrison in Topeka and see for yourself…or call ahead for an appointment at (785) 233-1000.
