Whitedog Import Auto Service


Good place to get a Saab fixed. We had a small problem at one point, but they made it right in a timely manner and was satisfied with the outcome. I will go here for future repairs in the future, as they are the most knowledgeable import vehicle service center in the area.
The Wrhitedog team members are professional and nice. They provide helpful information and quality service. I give them my highest recommendation.
There was a woman in Cedar Falls this afternoon in the vicinity of WalMart driving a rust colored Volvo, dealer plate D2170 with a Whitedog Imports plate on the front.

Some European vehicle owners try to save money by making auto repairs themselves. While this is fine in some cases, it's not a good idea to attempt a timing belt replacement on your own. It requires partial engine disassembly.


You may have heard that maintaining a European vehicle is more expensive than some of its counterparts. While there is an associated cost, keep in mind that your auto is worth more, and you're helping retain its value.


This hurts to look at 😬😫


Make sure the auto repair shop you choose for your European vehicle has the latest diagnostic equipment and tools. Also, be sure the technicians keep their skills current. European models are often on the cutting edge and need special attention.


European imports sometimes require a greater number of proprietary parts than their domestic counterparts. These are parts specific to the brand that can only be obtained from the automaker and/or sole source providers.


What's your style?


Many European vehicle models are designed for longevity. Therefore, you're likely to get years of use from your automobile if you take care of it by following the manufacturer's recommended preventive maintenance service schedule.

: Depending on how hard you run your vehicle, you may need to change your oil earlier than recommended. Scheduling oil changes seasonally is a great way to make sure your oil stays clean and full!
