Thoughts- Many mechanics are not computer people, if you can, give a phone call.

Looking for trusted shop to do a front wheel bearing on my brother in-law's 2004 Jetta. I would normally do it, but it failed on him out if town in Albany, NY. Anyone know the best place in, around, or close to Albany? Please text me if you can. 716-400-5511
Thanks.

A wheel bearing isn't TDI specific. Just look for a reputable indy VW/Audi shop. Google is your friend. Just my 2...

howdy, new member here in south eastern New England (Eastford CT) looking for a guru to do a timing belt and give my 99.5 ALH a once over since I'm just about to turn over 250K. I have been driving this car for almost a year and can't really fathom switching back to a gasser anytime soon as long as I can keep this thing on the road.

Does anyone know how to get ahold of Roger in Atlanta?

Knew exactly by listening before he put on computer that I had a cracked exhaust line, affecting turbo.

LOCAL dealership wanted over $2000 for new turbo, and of course it would not have fixed problem.

Also checked bearings and bolted new sway bar bolt on my 330K alh 5 speed with rocketchip stage 2 and mid ranged taller 5 gear.

These guy are excellent..

Total cost: <$180.

Just got an email from Bens Vdub shop in Madison Wi. they are reorganizing their emails. they are not taking any new customers till June/July via email. they are trying to get caught up on older projects and are concentrating on getting those done.
they no longer are taking phone calls or have counter hours. strictly by email.

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.
I agree, Mike is the best.

If the website and email doesn't work, it should be removed from the listing and leave just the phone number...


it's also 2018, and many, many people prefer to communicate electronically so it can be a pretty big loss of business to be only reachable via telephone.
