Default Recommendation for a Good TDI Mechanic in Dallas/Ft. Worth Tx. Area?

My mother needs to have the timing belt replaced on her 2000 Jetta TDI and is in Cleburne, Tx, which is about 75 miles southwest of the Dallas Ft. Worth Texas area. Does anyone have suggestions for a good mechanic or dealership that can do this and replace all the one-time use items/fastners that need to be done with this job?

Thanks.

If you can get the car to Austin, runonbeer is one of the best in the country.

There have been a number of threads regarding DFW dealerships. Some are terrible, others merely mediocre. Even if you found a good one, it would cost much more than if your mom takes a drive down to Austin.

Thanks Paramedick and TornadoRed. I'll pass this along to my mom and try to convince her to go to Austin.

It's a once-every-100k-mile thing. I'm not suggesting she drive half-way across Texas to get an oil change, or anything like that.

If she is an hour SW of DFW, she is already 1/3 of the way to Austin....

Default drive to austin!

It's only 2 hours 43 minutes, according to Yahoo! Maps.

This is a no-brainer.
