Howard is the best mechanic I have ever gone to. Besides being an excellent mechanic he is a real down to earth guy. When you are in the shop, stop in and say hello to Tiger, Howard's extraordinary cat.

First off, the downside is that these guys have a very loyal (and ever expanding) customer base, so you have to wait 2 weeks plus to get a non-emergency appointment. They do not do unnecessary work, and several times have explained to me exactly why a part does *not* need replacement. For example, a dealer said I needed a $4400 transmission replacement (based purely on a diagnostic light -- the transmission never had any mechanical problem) and Howard said I didn't need one and spent several minutes explaining how his discussions with a transmission specialist have led him to conclude that the diagnostic software is too hypersensitive in that particular model year. Since then, my transmission has continued to function perfectly for about a year so far. Howard takes the time to explain (if you're interested) exactly what the problem is, how he noticed it, and how he fixed it. It's nice to get the impression that he caters to smart customers, as opposed to the two local VW dealers I've been to (Holbert's and Northeast Auto Outlet) who cater to beginners and/or idiots. Northeast Auto charged me $120 to replace my left front signal lens; Wagenwerks charged me $45 to replace the right one (both prices include parts and labor). Maybe the left one is three times as expensive, or maybe Northeast used solid platinum screws or was charging me for the use of their state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to make sure the turn signal lens was missing... or maybe you should run, not walk, away from VW dealers.

I don't know why there are no reviews here as there were plenty a year ago. These guys are the BEST. The only problem is that they are SO good and decent that you sometimes have to wait a while to get an appointment. I know someone who bought a VW just so Howard could be their mechanic. I found them after being gouged somewhere else. Howard will talk you out of work if he feels it is superfluous or unnecessary. I have had VW's mostly but now am down to a Toyota and a Saab. Good work all around. Joe Vey

Howard is not only an extremely knowledgeable VW mechanic, he's just one heck of a great guy. A good and trusted mechanic is hard to find, so having Howard service your car is a no brainer.
