The NiceCars team walked with me every step of the way, including helping me to get full financing from a major, national bank! I don't doubt their sincerity and integrity for a moment.There were some typical wear and tear issues after the purchase. Took it to a couple local VW "guru" shops. The first wrote me an estimate for a drive axle and clutch both entirely not needed, and in fact in new condition. The 2nd helped me with an electrical item, and both remarked on how clean and well maintained the engine was, "not usually seen like that." NiceCars has been with me behind the scenes while I resolved these minor items.I was pleased to be able to spend some time at the NiceCars shop. They addressed every single item I mentioned and even added some stuff. They stand behind everything they do and know the value of the B4V/S and want the customer to appreciate it too, is the impression I took away.

Bought a 1996 Passat TDI from NiceCars. The Passat is running like a Champ!! I am very pleased with how well it hugs the road, the ride is exceptionally smooth. This is a huge satisfier for me. They put a lot of time and effort into getting it ready. Arrived home in Alabama.. and have some more good news to report...My fuel consumption for.. the journey was 52.9 MPG !!! I am ecstatic with the results and with the over all performance of the vehicle. What an incredible machine !! .. a high quality product and a smooth business transaction.Best Regards, Don Lykins, Alabama

I have a 1996 VW B4S-TDI diesel Sedan that I sent to Nicecars for a lot of restoration work. My car got new paint, rebuilt engine and suspension, new headliner, leather Audi seats, new stereo system and Halo headlights.All the work was first class, it looks like a brand new car. It took awhile but good work takes time. Nicecars has parts for these diesel B4 Passats that nobody else has.I would recommend Nicecars for any VW work, especially if you have a B4-TDI.

I had a B4V-TDI Wagon I wanted to sell as I was moving out of the country. I listed it for sale in Seattle for $12k. Nicecars called me and I ended up consigning to them to sell for me as they specialize in restoring these cars and they have a customer base for B4V-TDIs. Within 3 weeks they had it sold for $14K. It worked out well for everybody. good place to do business. Ramone Cordata, SpainSpanishbulldog

I bought a VW 1999 Golf last year from Nice Cars. I just took it in for new brakes. I got the brakes at Nices Cars cost-$35 and Nice Cars only charged me $20 for labor to replace all brakes! They also topped the coolant and tightened the screw on my mass air flow sensor. I’m impressed, I am very happy with Nice Cars.Courtney Holcomb, Ferndale, WA

Four years ago I bought a VW Jetta from Nice Cars. It’s now got 415,000 miles and going strong! I take it back to Nice Cars about once a year for for tune ups, good work, good prices. Best place in town to get a car- Larry Brgon

A few days ago my parking break was stuck and wouldn't move. I stopped by King Nissan and was in such a hurry. They were so nice and helped me right away and with no charges!

Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
