New Location

DEAR MONROE FOREIGN AUTO CUSTOMERS: After 36 years of your loyal support we have outgrown our location and shop! We will be transitioning to a new location, just across HWY 2, behind Taco Bell. This allows us to improve your service experience on several levels. We'll be in transition over the next couple of weeks and will inform those of you on our mailing list with updates as they occur.
