About Us

In January 2000, Car Trendz owner Tai Nguyen opened his doors in Alexandria, Virginia, offering state-of-the-art electronic equipment and installation services for auto sound, security, remote starter, GPS navigation systems, custom wheels, performance tires, mobile electronics, accessories and window tinting.  He started his career since 1987 as an installer and he had an ambitious goal: to become the leading in-car electronics retailer and installation expert in the DMV, Washington DC metro area.

Since then, Car Trendz has earned a reputation for being the place you can take your car, van, truck, SUV, boat or RV with complete confidence and enjoy the highest quality installations in Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland.

Custom installations, so perfect they look factory installed

The owner, Mr. Nguyen is a perfectionist, and his customers love him for it. “Our customers know they can trust us to treat their vehicles as we would our own cars,” explains Tai Nguyen. “With every installation, we aim to please with meticulous workmanship that goes far beyond their expectations and customer service that leaves them smiling.” Why choose us?

Loyal customers are the heart of Car Trendz’ business.

Car Trendz customers are extremely loyal and vocal about their experiences. Consequently, much of Car Trendz’ business comes from referrals and repeat business. Once Car Trendz does one installation for a customer, they eventually install systems for their customers’ family members, friends and colleagues at work. It happens every time.
