In the past, these folks have done very good work for myself and my family. Recently however, I had an issue with my 02' Volkswagen GTI. I had trouble shot the issue as far as I could, to the point where I was sure there was an issue with either the ECU or one of the modules. It would run on starting fluid fine, but would not start unaided. Fuel Pressure, spark, voltage at the injectors, everything looked good to go. I broke down, and called the tow truck, and had them take it to the shop. That was 6 months ago. I have been very patient, but this is getting ridiculous. When I called today, and asked if any progress had been made I was told no. When I asked when I should expect some progress, I was told, whenever I get an empty shop. I'm more than a little upset by this attitude, especially when the main thing I had asked to have done was to have the vehicle hooked up to the Diagnostic tool, to figure out which module was bad, or if it was indeed the ECU. I don't have many other options in the area, have sworn I would never take it back to the local VW dealer, so my back is kind of against the wall on this one. In another six month or so, when my vehicle is (maybe) running again, I will most likely never take another vehicle to this shop again.
