Great to hear that eberg. It's nice that this list is actually of some use to people and that the shops listed are living up to the recommendations and expectations that have been set for them!

Yes, very useful. And I noticed when I parked my silve Jetta in front of JSP, that right next to me was another silver Jetta that greatly resembles the one in you signature!

Mean looking car with wheels that make the 17's on mine look small!

Yeah that's mine. She's patiently waiting for some new "toys" for under the hood. Unfortunately it's gonna be waiting for a while since my funds are all tied up with a new business I recently opened. I miss my car!

I'll give a thumbs up for JS Performance in Abby. Good mechanics and excellent service. Doesn't hurt that they are close to AVR too.

Unfortuneatly not, your going to have to dig around and ask questions to see if they know TDI's.

I am looking to buy a 2002 Jetta TDI is it worth having a mechanic take a look at it. What should I be looking for when I buy it? How much do you think it would cost?

Having it looked at first is a no brainer. I've done lots of pre inspections for customers and saved them buying total pieces of crap.

Look for worn brakes, tires, suspension IE bushings, tie rods etc. See if they will supply maintenance records, if not, assume it will need a timing belt done. Check how it drives-is it smooth? does it make boost? belch black smoke? If auto, how does it shift?

So I asked my niece who lives in Kelowna and drives a B5 Audi A4 with 1.8T and she took her car to Auto West. She said they were decent but she was a little put off that there were a couple of issues that weren't fixed but she's unsure if they were due to the previous shop totally screwing her around and basically implying that she'd need a whole new engine. Long story short, she'd have to go back to them to see if they are actually any good. Kind of a half-assed recommendation but better than none I suppose.
