Austin and family.
Import Auto has humble origins rooted in family and quality service. The first Import Auto repair shop in Forsyth County opened in 1993. Its aim was to provide an auto repair experience that felt more like a trip to a friend’s garage rather than visiting a slick conglomerate. The success of this approach lead to the need for expansion in facilities and in 2001 the shop landed at its current location on Atlanta Highway.
Austin Blanton, a lifelong automobile enthusiast, purchased Import Auto after working at the shop in a variety of roles for 6 years. While planning on taking the service experience to another level, Austin still aims to carry on Import Auto’s traditions of honesty, integrity and providing quality service that doesn’t break the bank. He hopes Import Auto will be a place where customers become family and exceptional service is the status quo.
