These guys are the best. They will take care of you no problem! The main man Rax is honest and caring, which in the car world, is a wonderful and rare find. We give them Christmas cookies every year! Go to them, they are pretty busy but its worth the wait!!

After going to Tuan's for 5+ years I am finally writing a review. These guys are the absolute BEST. I cannot say enough good things about them. I am driving a '92 Honda Civic with 207,000 miles on it, which is still running largely thanks to their hard work and expertise.

Reasons to love Tuan in general, and Rex (the lead mechanic) in particular:

1. When my battery died I got a jump and drove to Tuan's in a huge rainstorm. I made it all the way from downtown Minneapolis and was at the stoplight at Pascal when the rain kicked up another notch and I turned my wipers to high. That was all my little battery could take, and the car died right there in the intersection. I put my flashers on and ran the block to Tuan's. I arrived, drenched, and explained what had happened to Rex. He promptly grabbed a portable jumper box, ran through the pouring rain himself, jumped the car, and drove it back to the garage with the *jumper box attached and the hood open*. He is a hero.

2. In a winter storm, I found myself with a dead battery again, stuck by the side of the road about 3 miles from Tuan's (I was on my way there when the car died). It was about 20 below zero, and they sent a guy out to jump the car and follow me into the garage.

3. I just took the car to get the oil changed and found out that, according to the oil change place, I needed $700 worth of repairs. I called Rex and he's doing it for $450.

You cannot beat this place. They are honest, they are nice, they will rescue you in a rainstorm or a snowstorm. I really just love them. Do not hesitate.

Especially do not hesitate if you are a woman who is tired of being talked to like an idiot that does not know her tail pipe from her headlight. They will treat you like a human being. Go. You won't regret it.

The crew at Tuans are amazing. When it comes to price, reliability and service, there is no shop that compares. I started going to Tuans about a year ago. I was referred by a local parts store and they told me that they are the best. They were not lying. Raks at Tuans has saved me money, time and most importantly worries from being taken advantage of. If you want an honest, inexpensive and skilled repair on your vehicle; Tuans is the place to go.... THANKS TO THE ENTIRE CREW AT TUANS!! YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST IN TOWN!!!

I bring in an old car that's making funny noises and which has a door handle that has fallen off. I'm hoping to sell the car so I am trying to be smart about how much I invest in it.

Not only does this guy check it out for free and diagnose what is wrong with the car after about a minute of listening to it (power steering fluid leak, bad struts). I tell him that I am thinking about selling it and he recommends NOT getting it fixed; he recommends selling it 'as is,' and simply getting a quote on the labor. This recommendation is, of course, against his own financial interests. He just wanted me to make the best financial decision.

As if this weren't enough, he then takes a replacement door handle that I bought off the internet, unscrews the old one, and installs the new one within five minutes. No charge. (The mechanic down the street estimated about $90 labor for this).

This guy is an absolute prince of a man -- obviously great at what he does, and an honest person. Needless to say, I will never go anywhere else.

Tuan's saved my job. My company moved from Maple Grove (with an office in St. Paul) out to Albertville. My Front end steering and mounts, bushings etc went out and I didn't know where to turn. Taun's answered my call, provided the help I needed and gave me a real discount compared to quotes I received at other places. The GM Rax quoted me a price and he stuck to it and stood behind his work. I know I can trust Rax and Tuan's with my life and the lives of my friends! Without Rax and his guys hard work at a great price I would have been let go from my job. I can't possibly thank Tuan's Auto Rapair enough they are great...honest....and more than fair.

I have known the Tuans half my life, and have been a customer for at least 10 years. I bought my last two cars with their advice/help/approval. If you have a mechanic as your ally, buying an economic vehicle isn't so stressful--my advice is, find a mechanic that treats you like a valued human (if not a friend), and let THEM pick a car they think will keep you on the road for less. Tuan Auto has done this for me! It feels like they are invested in my experience, and I know they have saved me thousands of dollars over what I might have spent had I gone with my own, uninformed "gut" choices in cars.

Also, as a woman, I have never felt slighted, disrespected, or abused by the treatment, or business practices (like how to proceed addressing problems/auto work) of Tuan Auto - which is another thing that separates them from the several other mechanic shops I have used. Rax Tuan, like his dad before him, has been very patient in helping me to understand mechanical realities of my cars, without belittling me for my innocence in these matters.

I don't know that Tuan Auto needs lots more customers-I think they are already very popular. But I'd still recommend anyone start there for quality yet inexpensive auto work. In my opinion they are the best. The waiting area isn't shiny, but they always save me money!

I have been visiting Tuan's for several years! I have my 2006 vw jetta worked on as well as my 1969 vw karmen ghia, not to mention the junkers in between! They are great, both the level of service and price. They will forever be the shop I go. I am happy to have found my trusted mechanic!

GREAT SERVICE!!

I had a quote from Tires Plus to fix my Cv joints and tie rods for 1500.00. Rex at Tuan fixed both of those problems and 3 other things for quite a bit less. They kept me informed and shopped around for the best price on my parts. I was taken care with white glove service and will always take my car back.

I brought my Isuzu Rodeo in to have a differential leak fixed in August 08. After a day I got a call back that things weren't going well and they were having problems getting the pinion bearing to seat and it would be another day. I called the next day and they still couldn't figure out what was going wrong. The next day, this is 3 days so far, I was informed that the entire rear axle had to be replaced. I gave the OK and waited another 2 days for them to get it done. This took a total of a week. Anyway, about 2 months later I had a flat tire on the rear and when I went to remove the security lug nut, i discovered Tuans had given me the wrong key. Once i got the lug nut off, I discovered they had cross threaded another lug and I had to break the lug bolt off to put the spare on. Overall i am not impressed and intend to not return for any further service on my vehicle.

I was on a soccer trip to the cities from Wisconsin on a friday evening when my Van "blew" up in the Intersection near Snelling. A fellow pointed me towards Tuans to see if they could help. It was after 6PM on a friday evening but they remained open so I could get my vehicle in and looked at. They discovered the air conditioning lines had "blown" off but did some test to be sure car was safe for me to drive back home that evening. I was ever so grateful for their time and hospitality. I would definately reccomend them. Thank You Tuans!

My fiance and I have been taking our car to Tuan Auto for about three years now. It started when our car would mysteriously die on us. It was terrible, it didn't matter where we were or how fast we were driving. It would just randomly die. We took it in to mechanics NINE times before going to Tuan, on a friend's recommendation. After one day in the shop they had solved the problem. I was so happy with them, I knew I would never go anywhere else again. They have proved time and time again that they are best mechanics in town. Their prices fair, service is fast, the mechanics explain problems to you and are always super nice. I am not he only one who thinks this way. One wall in their lobby is covered in "thank you" cards from their clients.
