I can't more highly recommend Mike and his work. I've been around vehicles for decades, worked in Heavy Equipment shops, known a lot of Mechanics, and can do just about anything on anything that moves but at my age, choose to not get under cars as much as I used to! Mike is very, very good... a TDI specialist... but more important, he is a fair-and-square guy. His work is efficient and his prices are reasonable. He explains what he did, keeps the old parts, and only charges for the work he DID, not the work he can "get away with billing", like so many other shops. Contact me on the side for more details.

Already in the list, but I wanted to add my 2 cents. Just had cam/lifters replaced here in my 2004 Golf around 200k. Roman was easy to deal with, genuinely knowledgeable, thorough, and was able to get the job done quickly without much heads up on my part.

He took the time to poke through the rest of the car with me and answer all my other questions, and he didn't even make too much fun of the headlight access panel I made out of duct tape and a coat hanger. I don't think he liked it all that much, but he didn't pass down harsh judgement either.

Bottom line, I wouldn't hesitate to head back to him if I needed something else major done.
I concur, Roman is a great guy to work with and also very knowledgeable. I'll be going to him to do my timing belt once I receive my Christmas bonus.

Representing IA here...this guy is wicked smart when it comes to all makes and models of VW. I think its time to drop a pin for his location and get IA on the map. Scott has been working on VWs since his teenage years and did a great job changing my timing belt for me when it came due.

There aren't many online reviews for the Joetown Garage, but they are all positive. It's too soon to declare that Wally and Scott are TDI experts, but I think it's worth adding them to the list and then hope that some other Club members will check them out. AFAIK there's never been a shop or mechanic on the list from Iowa. This one is fairly close to Iowa City, so reasonably convenient for folks in eastern and central Iowa.
