OK, so I heard that ownership had changed and was worried because I have been going here on and off for many years. But, I went in and the same patient guy (don't know his name) helped me as always and gave out valuable information freely as usual - they are really into helping you fix your car yourself here. This is THE place to go for parts if you have an '80's VW like me. Anywhere else will charge you up the butt AND give you attitude at the same time. Last time I brought my rabbit pickup in, the mechanic made her run like a racehorse - don't know how! On the downside, repairs aren't cheap and they're nowhere near a BART station which is why I have been trying out San Francisco mechanics here and there. Sometimes I just don't have time for the 45 minute walk, 45 minute BART ride, MUNI ride, etc.


I'd give this place 10 stars If I could.If you have a VW, this is your spot. (they also do Audis and Bimmers, but that's it). I have an '86 Jetta GLi which needs occasional love and attention, and when I can't fix it myself, I bring it here.When I can fix it myself, this is where I come for parts: new, used, or aftermarket. The prices are great, and they guys there will take the time to talk to you, help you figure out your problem, sell you the parts, and show you how to put them in. I buy my oil filters here, always pay $5 cash, and get a free drain plug washer. I bought a coolant overflow reservoir there, it failed within a year, I brought it back, and they replaced it for free.It's just so rare to find mechanics and parts guys this knowledgable, this passionate, and this honest. And at a great price. If I ever move away from Berkeley, this will probably be the place I miss the most.They also have some great mechanics and have been expanding their service department over the past few years. Just last week, one of my rear wheel bearings went. They scheduled me for the next day and had the car done by 4. And, when I dropped it off, Walt (the service manager, I think) offered to drop me off anywhere in Berkeley. This is car repair like it should be done. They respect cars, respect customers, and respect their customers wallets.(I've been a customer for 7 years)
