If you have a VW, this is the place to take it. I have an '01 Jetta that I routinely take to Erik's. I brought it in because of a check engine light and battery light. The check engine light was a valve, and the battery light was my alternator. He replaced the alternator twice about a year and a half ago. The second time was to replace a rebuilt that didn't work at no cost to me. My alternator is outside of the manufacture's warranty now, but Erik did not feel it was right that I had to get a new one, so he once again replaced it at no cost to me. He is one of those mechanics that you never leave once you find him. He doesn't upsell services you do not need, and he has a great moral compass and ethics.

Erik's Import Auto is the BEST service I've ever had! He is very kind towards customers and builds a friendship with you. He is always willing to work with you on payments and ALWAYS does great work! He specializes in VW, and his prices are much lower than any shop around, and never tries to scam you/make more profit for himself. His own words, "I do what I enjoy doing, the money just follows." Since I've been getting my car fixed by him, I find myself having to fix my car less and less, because he truly fixes your car right. He's also really good at fitting you in last minute if you have an emergency and need your car fixed as soon as possible. HIGHLY RECOMMEND ERIK'S IMPORT!!! A+++ work.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
