About New Canaan Foreign Car

New Canaan Foreign Car, european and classic automobile repair shop in New Canaan CT

The Company

New Canaan Foreign Car Service Inc. is a family-run company devoted to the care and sales of fine European and classic cars. Begun in 1965, with roots back to the very beginning of the motorcar, the company has serviced thousands of fine automobiles, and become a fixture in the life of New Canaan.

Through 47 years in business, NCFC has established a reputation for dependability and honesty among the best in the community (and superior to the competition!!).

The master technicians at NCFC are trained professionals with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. They stay up to date with new cars using a sophisticated computer database that is updated continuously. Our technicians receive on-going training by attending factory schools and seminars. Our technicians represent more than a century of experience maintaining the highest quality vehicles. Expertise and collaboration on complex jobs give you and your vehicle the benefit of their collective experience.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to offer fair value repairs and preventive maintenance to keep you and your family safe and free from breakdowns.

It's our job to keep your car in the same reliable condition it was in when it left the showroom floor, and we take that job very seriously!

We Practice What We Preach

The owners are a husband and wife team. The better half of the owner's team calls every customer after repair to check on satisfaction.

We give every car a complete 45-point safety inspection. We check for any maintenance that is due according to the vehicle's manufacturer. We check and top-off all fluids, inspect all lights, and check tire pressures including the spare. You gain the peace of mind that trained professionals have inspected your car and will notify you when your next service is due.

Our History

NCFC was opened in 1965 by a master factory trained Mercedes Benz mechanic from Germany. The business was started to fill the need in the community for foreign car repair & sales after the Mercedes dealership in New Canaan closed. The original owner is personal friends with the current owners, and the shop changed hands to the current owners in January 1990.


Great Uncle Mark Bagg
Standing beside a car he designed and built in the late 1800's. An "ultra" overhead camshaft design with 12 cylinders and 3" valves, this vehicle was driven over dirt roads from West Springfield, MA to Boston, MA in 2 1/2 hours. A mechanical genius, Elisha Bagg also designed and built one of the first rotary gas engines (not pictured here), which he could not patent because the carburetor was not his design.

Message From the Owners, Mark & Lucia

Mark & Lucia of New Canaan Foreign Car, european and classic automobile repair shop in New Canaan CT

When we took over NCFC 23 years ago, we made it our mission to become a car company people could trust, not only for reliable repairs, but for friendly customer service. Part of our employee training is to ensure that they treat the customer with the same care.

This means that you, the customer, are the most important person in the shop; not an interruption of our work, but the purpose of it. You are not dependent on us, we are dependent on you. We are not doing you a favor by handling your job; the chance to do it is a favor to us. Our goal is to handle your car's maintenance reliably, with a smile.

We believe our many loyal customers mean we are meeting this goal. Over the past 23 years we have seen many changes. Many of you have grown from acquaintances to friends. We have seen families come in with toddlers that are now going off to college.

We are truly grateful for our customers and the community that have put their trust in us to repair their cars and keep them safe. We look forward to keeping in touch!
