About St. Matthews Imports

In 1969, two brothers and their close friend decided to leave their roots in eastern Kentucky and move to Louisville to build a better life and a brighter future. This dream began with pairing a small business loan and their expertise on Volkswagen repair. Their success in automotive repair in Louisville grew and quickly established a reputation for the city’s top choice for high-quality repair. Today, more than 45 years later, the St. Matthews Imports brand has grown to two locations including an auto repair shop in St. Matthews, and a marine repair center. We’re proud of expertise in auto repair  and marine repair and sales. We continue to be a family-owned and operated company with the second generation in full control of business operations.

Evolving over the years, German vehicles often feature the latest technology and most advanced comforts and as a result owners often head to the dealerships for any and all service needs. However dealerships often come with numerous hassles and stigmas from over the years such as:
