Beware! Dana at Der Volks Verks with tell you more about your make & model (and every model before and after it) than you'll ever want to know! He really cares that you understand just what it going on with your Volk Wagon. Dana insists on EVERYTHING being as close to spec as possible, and specializes in old model VW's of all sorts . . . he even has a Swim Wagon! Until I moved 1100 miles away from him, there is no one else I would let touch my '69 & '72 campers. As Dana sees it, old VW's are like pets -- and he treats them with the love and respect they deserve. I've never met a mechanic in my life that was as fair and skilled.

Dana Steele is the single most honest and knowledgable VW mechanic in the biz. There is no model that Dana doesn't know about, or have sitting around for that matter. He cares about your car, and loves to give you the low down on what could be happening, what should be happening, and what IS actually happening to your car. Don't accept substitutes. See the only REAL VW mechanic in SB. P.S. If you are able to get your car there, no distance is too far for his work.
