Lets put it this way, If you break down in a auto or truck while traveling east or west (I-70) going through Grand Junction Colorado and your driving a Mercedes vehicle ( passenger car or Sprinter) you will not find A MB dealership. Luckily. I found Foreign Aid and the owner Steve Stewart. He dispelled all the fears of being trapped in a strange town and getting ripped off by the repair shop that would take advantage. Steve was very professional and a took care of my alternator problem (which he had to order) and got me on my way. I would recommend anyone to use his services. By the way he has a great sense of humor, even though he is a Ohio State Buckeye fan. If you need foreign car service in Grand Junction,CO or you break down (on I-70) like I did be sure to find Steve. If he is not in his office just like for a white Porsche motoring around town.
My daughter had an issue with her Mini Cooper last week. The only dealers are either in Loveland or Salt Lake. And they want $100 just to diagnose the problem. What a predicament to be in! But then she found Steve Stewart at Foreign Aid on 25 Road in Grand Junction. She took her Mini to him that afternoon, he diagnosed the problem for FREE, talked to her Dad on the phone, gained his confidence, lent her a car, ordered the parts, got the problem fixed by the next afternoon, AND had took her car to Big O Tires to have the tire fixed!!! All for a FAIR price! We are all thrilled to have found this shop and this wonderful man!! So much so that I will bring my Beetle the 3 hours drive from south central Utah the next time it needs any kind of service. It is so nice to know that there is a place where you can take your foreign vehicle and have confidence that you will get an honest assessment of the problem and not get ripped off. Especially for a woman alone!!! How many auto shops can you feel like that about? Foreign Aid is a treasure on the Western Slope!
We barged in on Steve and his crew after receiving an emergency recommendation from a Facebook site dedicated to Volkswagen Eurovan campers. We were driving with a clunking emanating from front end and we were 10 hours from home in Boise. It only took Steve a short drive to diagnose the problem as the C/V joints on the front axles of this front-wheel-drive van. Uh oh! Thank goodness for Steve's sense of humor! And also for his willingness to shoehorn us into his already crammed schedule. He had us back on the road in two days despite a snafu from a parts supplier. It's rare to find an independent mechanic and specialty shop with such a willingness to drop everything and help. Even more rare are folks with Steve's many years of experience dealing with the nuances of foreign cars. The Foreign Aid is a lot more than a foreign car repair shop. It's an iconic garage in Grand Valley's majestic western landscape. We'll never drive by Grand Junction again without stopping in to visit Steve and The Foreign Aid.
