Import Specialty Auto (ISA) service and repair
Our name says it all: import auto repair is what we do, and we've been doing it since 1978! Our family owned business began in a small, two bay automotive repair garage that specialized in Volkswagen and Volvo repair. Import Specialty Auto (ISA) quickly began to distinguish itself as a leading auto repair shop in Colorado Springs. ISA became the "go to" shop for servicing Volvo and other European and Asian vehicles. Over the years, we've made significant investments in training and tools in order to advance our expertise in performing repairs on European vehicle makes such as BMW, Mini Cooper, Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes, Volvo, and Land Rover. We've also developed an expertise diagnosing and repairing Asian vehicle makes such as Subaru, Honda, Acura, Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, and Infiniti.

Import Specialty Auto has been specializing in the service and repair of VOLKSWAGENS since the ’80s. ISA’s goal is the same now as it was then, to provide the best VW repair Colorado Springs has to offer. Today, ISA is the premiere shop for Colorado Springs VW repair and service. While we no longer service the old “air-cooled” VDubs, we are experts when it comes to gas and diesel engine VOLKSWAGEN vehicles from the mid-’90s on. In short, ISA knows VW!
Our ASE-Certified Master technicians are specifically trained to be experts in the systems and components of VOLKSWAGEN vehicles. ISA technicians are familiar with the nuances and common failures and fixes of VW cars. Their combined experience is tough to match when it comes to Colorado Springs VW repair technicians.
If you’re going to work on Volkswagens, it’s imperative that you have the many VOLKSWAGEN specialty tools required to safely and correctly perform services and repairs. Import Specialty Auto is one of the few Colorado Springs VW repair shops that has invested in these specialty tools, and we use them every day. Most repair shops do not have these specialty tools or the knowledge of how to use them, and as a result, repairs are not done safely or correctly. ISA’s large investment in these tools is another reason why we’re the best VW repair Colorado Springs has to offer.
Volkswagens speak an entirely different language than other vehicles, and we’re happy to say that ISA speaks VW! Our Colorado Springs VW repair shop uses its dedicated VW / Audi VAG-COM Diagnostic System (VCDS) to diagnose VW problems every day. If you own a VW, it should only be serviced at a shop with this diagnostic capability.
VW is one of the most popular brands on the road today! We know that you have high expectations, and as a VW repair shop we enjoy the challenge of meeting and exceeding those standards each and every time.
Don’t trust just anyone with your VOLKSWAGEN. Bring it to a shop that understands imports and specializes in VW repair.
What Our Customers Say
“Mechanics are insanely knowledgeable and don’t recommend things your car doesn’t need. As a former mechanic walking in for the first time, they were honest and straight to the point.”
“I recently took my Lexus in to ISA, I’m a repeat customer and have always felt very taken care of. They’ve been monitoring my front axle boots for about a year now and said it was very minor until recently when they showed me that one of the boots had finally split and I needed to replace it at this time to save the expense of having to replace the entire axle assembly. I have full confidence that they have my best interest in mind at all times and feel confident bringing my vehicle to them.”
“They have excellent communication regarding appointments and coordinating vehicle pick up and their pricing is exceptional. It was a great relief finding them after paying dealership service fees for way too long. I have had both big and little repairs done at ISA and have been very pleased with their maintenance and repair work and would highly recommend them…you will be pleased too.”
“They’ve been around forever and know what they’re talking about. You can talk every detail over with them for sound reasoning before making a big decision. I.e. motor mounts to address vibration at hwy speed was a smart place to start! Eric in particular will not steer you wrong, he’s in it for the long haul guys, in it to win it!”
