They don't come any more honest, hard-working or credible than Bob. Dealer estimate on one particular repair was $2700. LOR repaired for under $400.

I went to this shop based on the feedback I found here and have since met other satisfied customers of this shop. Bob was very straight forward and thourough. He repaired what I needed and also called around to check my warrenty status on certain parts. Instead of fixing the catalytic converter himself he called to the local dealership and arranged for me to bring it in where they would repair it for free. I will definately continue to bring my '03 Jetta here as long as I have it.

Bob is the best VW mechanic in town. Even though I live 40 miles away and there are plenty of other mechs between here and there - my car always goes to Bob. Fair prices, quick and accurate diagnoses - once your VW is out of warranty - get away from the dealership and take your car here - it will get better care at a better price than any VW dealer will ever consider giving you.

Bob is helpful & honest; they do it the right way here. Very knowledgeable on VW/Audis, always fully explains everything. Not the cheapest labor rate in town, but a 100% fair deal for the quality & speed that you'll get. Also, Bob willingly saves you $ by telling you when something can wait, you could do it yourself, or doesn't really need to be replaced. I've had engine work done there, and it's the place to go when it has to be done right.

Most Trustworthy repair shop! (Makes me wish that our minivan is also VW so it can be repaired by these guys also.) The owner, Bob, is someone who seems to put your interest in fixing the car first. While serving in the Army, my VW of past 9 years had been to at least 5 different VW dealers AND 5 different independent repair shops over 4 different states. That's 10 different repair facilities over 4 different states (from the West coast to the East coast and now Texas. During that time, I've had 3 pretty good independent shops (not including VW dealers and not including Lord of the Rings). But Bob is the most trustworthy among them. I do most routine maintenance on my VW myself (e.g., engine oil change, spark plug replacement, transmission oil change, etc.), so I believe my knowledge of car is above the average and, therefore, better able to spot a good mechanic when i see one. Bob's explanation of the problem I had was very thorough and helpful. His charge was also very reasonable and fair. I actually wanted to pay him more! (It's the first time I've had a feeling like that about a car mechanic.) Absolutely highly recommended!

Like the other folks say, Bob is not as cheap as some others, but you get top-notch work, the right parts and fair, but not bargain, prices. Bob can tell you what is wrong in very short order and explain any recommended repairs. Based on my experience here compared with other shops, I am willing to be inconvenienced by the 15 or so mile distance from my home to entrust my car to him. My old mechanic was willing to do what you might call "jerry-rig" repairs to save you money or help your problem be solved well enough until you could afford to do the full-on repair, but I don't get the sense that Bob would ever do that. I think he only believes in complete solutions; nothing is done halfway, and he will not offer to do anything halfway, which is why he can cost more. (I admit that sometimes I wish he would offer or describe stopgap measures that could save me a few bucks.) More intellectual than your average mechanic--Click and Clack would love him.
