I've been a customer since the early '80s and have always been satisfied. The shop owner is VERY fussy about doing repairs right -- the first time. I've been through three VWs (it's the only car they repair) and won't buy any other car because I know I have a reliable repair shop - one I can trust not to rip me off. When I wanted to replace the parking lights on my Passat they gave me a price that I thought was too high. So I priced the lights online at a much lower price. They agreed to give me the same price plus installation which was nominal. There is a railroad station one block away so that if I have to leave my car overnight I can take a train home.

Tom is the perfect mechanic. He doesen't sell you stuff that you don't need and he fixes the car right the first time. We have many Vw's in the past 20 years and he has serviced all of them. A few times the car has gone to the dealer for warranty work and they are unable to fix it. Tom fixes it!

I have had three VWs since I first went to SOB. They treat me well and are always honest. I have done a lot of mechanical work on my VWs in the past and am pretty familiar with the vehicles. I would never hasitate to bring a VW problem to them.

This is a great mechanic! I trust him with my Passat, and my wallet! He knows the Volkswagens better than the dealerships do. I highly recommend him.

I trust Tom. As as female I feel somewhat vulnerable with car repair costs/necessity. I feel strongly that I am not paying for anything that my 1998 Beetle does not need. And they are very prompt and efficient.

I have known the owner, Tom Abrams, for 35 years. He's extremely knowledgeable and knows VWs inside and out. I only drive VWs because I can rely on him to keep my car on the road.

You will not find another shop anywhere in NJ with the highest level of integrity, honesty, quality of service, professionalism, quick turnaround time, and fair pricing that Same Old Brand provides. It is truly refreshing to know that you can take your car in for service blind-folded and never again get ripped-off. There's no other place I'd entrust my VW (or any other car for that matter) with.
