At North County Import Specialist you'll find the expertise and premium parts needed to get your hybrid or electric vehicle back on the road in no time. The days of being stuck with dealer repairs, and the sky high bills that come with them, are over. At North County Import Specialist you'll find highly trained and qualified mechanics with expertise in every area that makes your hybrid or EV different from everyday vehicles, such as electric drivetrain components and regenerative braking systems.

Your hybrid car's electric motor allows it to save gas when driving around in stop and go traffic. Getting your car rolling strains your engine much more than cruising along at a steady pace. This is where the torque of an electric motor comes into the hybrid drive system, and where your gas savings come from. At North County Import Specialist, our experts are trained to keep those savings coming, by ensuring that the electric motors in your hybrid or EV are in optimal working condition. We provide diagnostic testing, repairs, and preventative maintenance for drivers near Vista to make sure your hybrid or EV remains at peak performance.

Without your vehicle's battery and charging systems, those fuel-saving electric motors will have no power to turn. The specialized batteries in hybrid and electric vehicles are the costliest part of the entire system, so they should be serviced by mechanics that have expert training in the field. At North County Import Specialist we ensure that only certified technicians, fully trained across all major manufacturers' power systems, will service your vehicle's battery and charging systems. As with your vehicle's electric motors, we can diagnose and repair issues, as well as sourcing and installing quality replacement parts should the job require it.

The capacity for regenerative braking is another clever feature of your hybrid or EV. This kind of braking essentially puts the electric motor(s) into reverse, assisting the mechanical brake pads and slowing the vehicle while generating electricity to charge the battery. A beneficial side effect of this system is the longevity that drivers see in the life of their brake system. At North County Import Specialist we carefully monitor your vehicle's brake pads to ensure the pads last as long as possible, saving you even more money in the process. When it's finally time to replace the pads, we'll have you back on the road within a matter of hours.

If you are looking for great service for your hybrid car or electric vehicle in the Vista CA area call North County Import Specialist today at 760-945-0266.

Testimonials

  • Glenn and the crew did a great job in determining the cause of an electrical issue I was having with truck. The work was completed quickly and they saved me money. Thanks for all of your dedication. Keep up the good work
    -Terry P.

  • I have been taking my Honda to Glenn for years. I trust him completely. Every issue I've ever had has been resolved entirely. Very satisfied customer! I recommended him to my family and would say the same to anyone else who owns an import!
    -Jessee M.

  • I stopped in to check prices and scheduling. Prices are very good and I scheduled appointment for the next day. Upon arrival, I was greeted immediately and my service was completed in half an hour. I am very happy with every aspect of my experience and will be returning with my other vehicle. Good service, good price and good people. All I could ask for. Thanks.
    -Jim T.

    -Rebecca B.

  • I trust Glen with my car and cash! He's straight forward and honest about needed repairs without upselling, and his prices are fair. I always leave North County Imports with peace of mind that my car is at its best.
    -Tracey A.

  • I knew that when I met Glenn that I could trust him, not only as an honest person but a qualified mechanic. He has a wall of industry certificates to show his formal training and years of experience to complement that.
    -Martin M.

  • I have been going to North County Import Specialists for years. It is very comforting to know that Glenn (owner) and Art are honest (no upselling) and prices are fair. I trust them completely! My family and friends have expressed much gratitude to me for telling them about this terrific business. I agree with an earlier review -- service with the highest integrity!
    -Gale A.

  • Had a great experience at North County Import Specialists - staff was great, prices were just right and service was quick. Definitely will be back!
    -Kirsten P.

  • Service with the highest integrity! I have never questioned a repair quote in all the years I have been taking my Toyota trucks to Glen and the crew. I hope they never change from what makes them stand out most, excellence in the basics!!
    -Curtis W.

  • Its hard to find an honest mechanic. But here you always know you are going to get an honest assessment and recommendation. I'm not going anywhere else. Thank you!
    -Janee H.

  • I'm glad I found NCIS. For years I've been using the car dealership for my car's service, but no more! This was my third visit and each time Glenn and his crew did a great job. There is no pressuring to sell. Very low key, honest service.
    -C. W.

  • Glenn and his group are an unbelievably honest and thorough group of mechanics. I took my car to Nissan slash Infiniti in Oceanside and was told I needed Brakes in the rear and brake fluid changed. I took it to Glen who is my regular mechanic and he said the brakes in the rear we're fine and the brake fluid had been flushed and added about seven thousand miles ago. The charge for this information - $0.
    -Michael P.

  • I tried to save money and not take Glens advice. Mistake. Ended up paying more. I love having a mechanic that I trust! He's always the one I'll take my car too.
    -Chris M.

  • Great place to take your car. Staff is very friendly and honest! Been going here for years.
    -Catherine M.

  • I had heard good things about North County Import Specialists, so I decided to take my car there and made an appointment. Their waiting room was nice and they had my (routine) service done in no time. I felt their prices were fair and the quality of work is excellent. I look forward to using them for all my car maintenance needs.
