The first time I met Sam he assured me that the problem I was having with my 1988 Mercedes 300SE was no big deal. He calmly smiled and told me he'd figure it out. And he did. Right away! Something that no mechanic I had ever consulted could do. I was amazed and so relieved that I brought the car to him exclusively from then on. What I like about Sam and the men who do work for him is of course the attention they pay to the minutest detail down to the bolt, the cool cars like Bentleys, Rolls and others that they work onand the clean shop and the ties they wear to work. Most of all though, its Sam's air of complete confidence that he's going to fix whatever the problem is, at a reasonable price and it won't ever happen again. He doesn't scratch his head. As long as you do what he says. He's like a car doctor. He just knows these cars.So now I bring him my used Range Rover knowing that for one thing I'll be able to afford to drive it. The cars Sam services are the finest automobiles out there and he knows what they're all about, what makes them go, what makes them happy. He knows them intimately. I can see why people trust him with their 4 million dollar cars.

The guys at Sam Smyth Imported Car Service Inc. are awesome. They are very honest and reasonable. I am a woman who has experienced some very dishonest mechanics. These guys are the best. They are fast, reliable,and great,When I was at Sam Smyth Car Service I was surprised by some of the types of cars they work on such as Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, Porsche, I myself own a 1998 Land Rover Discovery. I am so lucky to have stopped in on a whim one day for service of my vehicle. I will faithfully be a repeat customer, and will refer any one to give these guys . Give these guys a shot, you will not be disappointed.

Sam Smyth has a real passion for fine cars and his family owned business offers great service for a fair price. Sam helped me out with new brakes on my 2006 Land Rover LR3 and by using Sam Smyth Imports I saved $1000 over the price quoted to me by the dealer. I dropped my Rover off after work on a Friday and the work was comleted before noon the following Saturday. I highly recommend Sam Smyth Imports.

I just wanted to pop back by and let everyone know that I had Sam do some maintenance on my 2003 BMW 325i and was EXTREMELY impressed yet again! I am so glad I have Sam Smyth Imports to go to for my automobile maintenance. It gives me such piece of mind to know that I my car is getting taken care of for such an affordable price!

Sadly, I have to sell my car. :-( I will be going back to school and I have to get something that I can run around in while in school. So... If anyone would be interested in a fabulous 2003 BMW 325i sedan, silver with black interior, please give Sam Smyth a call! It has 93K miles on it. I just put new brakes, air filter, new rear diff fluid, tranny fluid, oil change, etc. Runs like a dream!!! I love it... you will too! And the holidays are coming... what better gift than an affordable BMW for your family member!

Keep on taking your car to Sam!!! It is the best decision you can make for your car and whatever car I have in the future, I plan to take my car to Sam!

PREVIOUS REVIEW:

GO TO SAM SMYTH IMPORTS!

My Top 5 Reasons:

5. They know what they are talking about and what they are doing.
4. Their business has been around for a long time (just check out the pictures in the office!)
3. Imports are their passion, and it shows in the work they do!
2. You can trust them to be honest, fair, and give you the best quality of work around.
1. Who doesn't enjoy walking into a shop and seeing beautifully restored Rolls Royces, MGs, Bentleys, and others that I can only hope I can afford one day!?!? It is like a car show without an entrance fee.

Now how did I come about Sam Smyth Imports? I am a female, with a 2003 BMW 325i, who needed brake pads, rotors, and wear sensors installed. I would have gone to the BMW store, but I find that going there means lots of waiting and a huge bill. On the other hand, I do not let just anyone work on my car. Since I had some work done at Dave Orr's Autobody a while ago, I called them and asked for a referral. The first place they recommended was Sam Smyth Imports. I gave Sam a call, not really knowing what to expect, and from that first call I became a customer for life.

At Sam Smyth Imports they treat you like a neighbor. Since I was interested in saving some cash, but not willing to compromise quality, they talked to me about the least expensive way to get all of the parts and told me they could do the labor. Of course, for those of you just wanting to drop your car off and pick it up when it is done, they also can order your parts.

I know there are some women out there who just go to their dealer for service because they are nervous about getting ripped off if they do not know what they are talking about. I am here to tell you that, while I don't know a ton about cars, I do know that I would have probably been paying close to double at the BMW Store for the same service. Also, Sam's team will talk you through your issues and take a look at your car to really identify what needs to be done. This helped me because there were a few other things I had questions about and they told me the easiest way to fix each thing.

I highly recommend Sam Smyth Imports to anyone who wants high quality work at an affordable price!

While I worked with Sam to rebuild and supercharge my 1977 MGB, I saw him rebuild and repair Jaguars, show-quality Rolls Royces, Mercedes Benzes, Ferraris, BMWs, Triumphs, MGs, Land Rovers, Corvettes, Bentleys and any other import or domestic brand. The guy is a genius in diagnostics and repair. He often finds and fixes problems that have stumped the dealerships, and he does it at far less than dealer repair prices. Maybe best of all, Sam is old school -- he will not take shortcuts, he will not compromise -- he insists on doing the job right the first time. There's not a better value for imported, exotic and performance car repair in Cincinnati.

Where do I start? Sam Smyth the proprietor of Sam Smyth Imports is the most honest, genuine, fair, brilliant auto mechanic that I have ever met since owning my 1999 Land Rover Discovery Series II. I have been relying on Sam??s excellent service since 2006. Sam is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to educate you on the issue at hand, walk you through the entire repair process, and get you vehicle back on the road fast and better than before. He offers one of the lowest labors rates around, especially for a British import. Another cost saving option, he allows you to purchase the required parts separately and have it shipped directly to his shop; saving you big bucks on parts. Sam is not condescending and will refrain from using fancy auto shop jargon that may confuse even the most erudite individual. He is honest and straightforward unlike the dealerships and respects your car as if it were his own. For goodness sakes, he repairs Bentley??s, Rolls Royce??s, MG??s, and an array of other British cars; I am certain he will respect your measly $40-$80K Land Rover. Sam??s has worked on Rovers almost his entire life and his father was a Rover mechanic. My Disco has been serviced at dealerships located in Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Akron, and Solon (Cleveland) and none compare to Sam??s expertise and no nonsense approach. I currently live in Northeast Columbus and make the 1.45 hr trek to Indian Hill (east Cincinnati) for service. He is willing to offer weekend drop off; very accommodating. You will not only gain a quality, trusting mechanic; you will also gain a genuine friend. In summation, Sam will not only prolong the life of your vehicle; he will also extend the buying power of your dollar during these desperate times. Please visit his website at smythimports.com for more information. Thanks so much Sam, you are a lifesaver.

I am amazed by the quality of service provided to me when they fixed my cars(mercedes, BMW, and Rover). Always they saved me lots of $$$. I trust these guys with my cars. They are reasonably priced, more importantly, they are very dependable. I am not aware of professionals like them are still around. Try it for your self.

Thanks to Sam and Lani

My newly delivered 1999 355F1 suddenly wouldn't idle. My web search for local Ferrari service yielded Sam Smyth He said to bring the car right out..and after two hours running perfect ($35 bill). Also there's lots of eye candy on his lot and service bays...restoring Bentleys, RR's and a perfect MGTD.

Message from Smyth Imported Car SVC

Sam Smyth is a world class import car mechanic with over 40 years of personal experience. Smyth Imports has been at the same location for over 30 years.



Sam is a professionaly trained and appointed Rolls-Royce Owners Club (RROC) National Judge and The Only Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club (RREC) National Judge residing outside the UK.



Smyth Imports is an Independent Authorized Bentley, Audi and Volkswagen service facility.



Smyth Imports was established in Ireland by Sam's Grandfather in 1934, Smyth Imports is now in it's third generation and is celebrating 75 years of providing quality motorcar and imported auto service.



Sam is an independent specialist providing service for just about any type of imported show car, but since he runs his own small shop he is able to maintain a low overhead and thus can offer very reasonable rates.



Who wouldn't want their car serviced like a show car for a reasonable rate?



So if you have a an imported car in Cincinnati call Sam.



If you live elsewhere, but have an exotic car that you just can't take to the neighborhood mechanic you need to talk to Sam about having your exotic car transported to the shop. It may cost less than you think and it will probably save you money in the long run, getting it done right the first time.
