When I first moved here in 1997 I tried every Volkswagen mechanic around. Of all the VW mechanics in the Central Brevard County area, Mark's VW Werkshop is now the only shop I will take my older VW to. (Mark works on newer Volkswagens too.) He is honest and charges extremely reasonable prices. For big jobs make sure you let him know as far in advance - he also loves to surf!

Mark is the best mechanic I have ever had the pleasure of visiting BY FAR... I cannot stress this enough: the man is the salt of the earth, and he will never, ever, EVER rip you off. A perfect example: On more than one occasion, I have given Mark CARTE BLANCE to fix anything and everything wrong with my car (I frequently travel from Florida to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, and I always want to make sure that my Golf will get me there and back in one piece)... And what does Mark do with such financial freedom? Almost nothing-- he fixes ONLY what needs to be fixed (if anything, and even then only after first confirming via telephone), and he charges only for ACTUAL labor (meaning that if it only takes 10 minutes to fix, then your labor bill is only for 10 minutes of work). How many other mechanics will do this? Not many.

a rare combination, a talented mechanic with principles. works by himself, so if u stay for the repair, u can give an assist, hand him the tools, hold the light etc.

Very reliable. Explained the problem and provided several alternative repairs. Did not push for additional services/repairs. Highly recommend Mark for your VW repairs.

When I decided to invest in one of the coolest, most unique recreational vehicles ever built by VW - the VW Westfalia Vanagon - I realized that the first order of business called for an honest and knowledgeable VW mechanic with a unique set of skills to deal with a full restoration project. Mark Grabowsky is a one of kind professional, single handedly one of the best formally trained mechanics that specializes in VWs. He was referred to me by Tom Neilson, Mark’s surfing buddy and world known surfboard shaper. When Mark and I discussed the project he openly mentioned the depth and breath of it and as he went along made sure that certain improvements would need to be made as needed to make it more enjoyable. Mark’s background as a formally educated mechanic from a highly respected Aviation School and expertise in designing, building, and testing systems in older model VWs gave me the comfort to work with him from Miami wherr I live. Mark spent a good 10 months methodically improving my 1985 Vanagon with the best system-designed parts from GoWesty, Bosch and others. Along the way, Mark tested each of these improvements to verify they met the rigors of adventure travel. Mark’s systematic approach to maintaining and improving Vanagons with top German manufactured parts as well as GoWesty products coincides with his philosophy about quality and how you get what you pay for. In his view a restoration project entails a van that has been properly gone through, maintained, and improved in a systematic way. If I had to describe my experience with Mark and my 1985 VW Westfalia Vanagon project it would be in three words: Excellence, Honesty, Good Karma.
