Since 1985, Rio Import Repair has been servicing clients with honesty and integrity, making sure the job gets done right, with attention to detail and at a reasonable price. Specializing in German and Japanese automobiles, we offer complete mechanical, body work, auto reconditioning, sales, accessories and more!
I contacted Rio to work on my Jeep’s AC after finding out that my car needed a condenser replaced. I was told that my car had a new system and few shops could service the AC besides the dealer. After speaking with Roger, he agreed to purchase a machine to be able to service my vehicle - he went above and beyond, brought the machine next day and fixed the issue. I’d definitely go back to Rio if I need help with my vehicles in the future.

Took Porsche Boxster for repair of convertible top and dent removal. Rio did a really great job for less than one third of what Porsche dealer would have charged. Since then, we have had both mechanical and body work done on our Acura as well as Porsche, and Roger always takes wonderful care of us and our cars.

We have dealt with Rio imports for years for our BMW's and really like their personalized service. And their quality work along with fair prices they definitely beat going to a dealership.Mary Larsson

My husband and I have been Rio Imports customers for over 30 years. First with Jack who started the business and Roger working side by side since he was able to walk. We TRUST Rio Imports. They always operate with integrity. Their advice and recommendations are given with the best interests of their customer. They investigate and offer alternatives, set the proper expectations, charge a reasonable price for high quality work. We are in Tampa and travel across the Bay. We will not take our vehicles for repairs or maintenance to anyone else. I highly recommend Rio Imports!

Took my car to another shop to get my struts replaced before a long trip to Tennessee. They told me it was going to be $$$$ and not done till probably just before I needed to leave if not after. I couldnt do that, so I took my car to RIO Imports where Roger was able to get my car worked into his schedule for the day and get me back in my car by that night. Thank you Roger and RIO Imports for everything. You will be my go to from here on.

Finding RIO imports was a saving grace to me and my old Audi. Great service, fair prices and awesome work!

Always excellent, honest service. They say, when you buy an import, that you need a good local mechanic, and I've found mine. Highly recommend Roger and the crew at Rio Imports Repair. Worth the drive, even if you're not in Clearwater.

Thanks Rio Imports for the great job taking care of my car last week. As always you communicate clearly and provide the needed service at a good price. Roger and his dad Jack have been taking care of my cars since I had my first BMW in 1987. They maintained my cars as they grew older and kept me going at a fair price. I always trust the diagnosis and advice I get from Rio. Over the years I have also bought two pristine used BMWs from them that they service for me.

Rio provides great work, quick service and fair pricing. They did a great job on my older Mercedes and discovered a couple of issues that needed attention before they became a really big problem. Thanks for taking care of us, Roger.

Great customer service and affordable. I refuse to take my car anywhere else but Rio automotive. These guys are the best in the business!

Found Rio and Roger on the internet. Reviews read well so I decided to give him a try. Have now used him twice in two months and can’t say enough good - honest, does what he says he will in the time quoted. Historically i’ve used a dealer for repairs but Rio has ALL my future business (hopefully there’s not a lot but...)!

Roger and the guys did an awesome job repairing my Mercedes C300. Great service at a great price. Rio Imports has been working on my car for years! I wouldn't take it anywhere else...

I called Roger when I was considering buying an old model BMW Z 3 Roadster and needed an expert opinion. He was thorough, careful and responsive and the cost was very reasonable. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering buying an older high end automobile. L H S

Rio Imports has been doing the work on my car since moving to Florida almost 4 years ago. I won't let anyone else touch my car. Always upfront and honest.
15:42 07 May 19
Roger has worked on my 06 3 series a couple times now, and both times he has been thorough, professional and honest in terms of what needs to be done, and how much it will cost. He is my "go-to" guy from now on. Very highly recommend him!

I’ve been going to Rio imports for all my vehicle repairs for 30 plus years. There has never been a reason to go anywhere else for any needed car repairs or advice on vehicle maintenance. Reliable and honest.

Rio Imports Repair is the only auto repair shop I would ever consider taking my car to in Pinellas county!This shop has an excellent reputation for many - many years as being the place that even dealers bring their cars to that their mechanics can’t fix! They have been a family owned business since the beginning and I actually feel like family when I’m there. They are honest and fair with their pricing, unlike the dealerships! I own a C300 Mercedes and I will never take my car back to the Mercedes dealerships in the area ever again! Go see Roger and get ready to be treated honestly!!!
14:52 06 May 19
My family has used Rio for years on all our imports. Very reliable and great service!

I have a 2009 Audi A4, and we had an incident where part of a garage ceiling crashed down upon my hood and passenger-side fender. I normally only take my car to the dealership, but heard really great things about Rio Imports.I was very impressed with the result. The quote was less than the dealership, it took them exactly the amount of time quoted, and my car looks incredible! You can't even tell there was ever damage, their craftsmanship is superb. And to top it off, they detailed my car as well. My car looks brand new.Big thanks to Roger and the crew at Rio!
