First encounter- VW Vanagon was leaking coolant in Massachusetts- shop there found problem but didn't have part- calls located part at Mechanical Advantage in CT. Not too far off my way- a gallon of coolant later I arrived- they fit me in and fixed the problem- then drove 60 miles to my in-laws. Next summer, vexed by long-term problem and with a week to spend at in- laws, left the vanagon for several day with Mechanical Advantage- did a lot of work- fixed the long term problem and many others- car still running fine- later, at home in DC, had a problem - called for advice- they confirmed my guess over phone and advised on appropriate service including things I hadn't thought of. If you have a VW in that area, I would recommend them very highly!!

These are good folks who are realistic and do good and careful work. They know their customers and are respectful and efficient. They are also aware of the foibles of the VW/Audi group. And they don't hide that reality from the customer. I recommend them highly.
