Default Any Phoenix gurus?

Any TDI gurus in Phoenix anymore? Specifically in the West side Buckeye, Goodyear/Avondale, Litchfield Park area? My son recently bought a 2015 Passat SEL TDI with the phase-1 fix and the extended warranty on all the expensive stuff.

He loves the car. He does his own basic maintenance (oil & filter changes). I have him buying his supplies and parts from IDParts so he's good there. He will need a DSG service later this summer and I don't want him to go to a dealer for that and pay through the nose. He takes his car to the VW dealership at the Avondale Auto Mall for warranty work. No problems with that.

With a knowledgeable helper/mentor, fluid fill tool, a VCDS, and a way to lift the car off the ground at least a foot and keep it level, the DSG service is a good afternoon project. Those are the things he will need. My car being a 6-speed manual I never had the chance to learn the DSG fluid change procedure so I'm no help. Otherwise I'd just do a road trip and help him out.

Any leads, suggestions, pointers, etc will be greatly appreciated.

We now know how to make it rain in the desert, get your car detailed! Seriously, he had his car detailed and it rained the very next day. Phoenix has like 36 rain days/year. What are the odds of that? ~1:10...

My favorite photo because one of the granddaughters photobombed it.

Drive more and worry less.
