First of all, they only work on VWs. And the "cash only" sign really means the green paper kind, not pay with credit card the same day. As a repeat customer who lives in the neighborhood, they will take my check. And they're only open Tues-Sat. But they're fair and honest; they really know VWs; and they usually don't charge for diagnostic work. The first time I went in there another mechanic had told me I needed a major brake job, but he didn't have the parts for a VW. West Coast inspected my car and called BS on him; told me to come back in another 3-4k miles -- no charge. One more disadvantage -- they get backed up sometimes, and can't complete the work the day you bring in your car, and since they're closed Sun. and Mon., sometimes that means bring it back next week. And right now, I've been waiting a couple days for a call to see if they can fit me in this Saturday--but I don't really wanna take my Cabrio to anyone else. They always seem to have several vintage microbuses and bugs around they're doing rebuilds on, but they also get a lot of newer VWs.

I've been taking a '79 Bay window to Debbie for a few years now. It took several visits to get a gas leak fixed, but otherwise working with her has been flawless, and I'm a little bit of a high maintenance customer. I mean I want these done fast, right, and cheap. She also finds out-of-production VW parts very quickly. Bus is purring at this point. I drive past several other VW shops, because going to her has been that good. They do take credit cards, in fact, she can do it over the phone, so there's no paperwork when you pick up.
