Ever since I purchased my used '91 Vanagon six years ago, I've brought it to Larry and his crew at Blazer Automotive. While it has been a reasonably reliable van (cross my fingers, knock on wood), whenever something is even slightly amiss, I call these guys. They know these vans SO well that I can usually explain the symptoms over the phone and get an idea of what could be happening. On a few occasions, they were able to tell me what the problem was definitively and give me a price for repair. They have always been accurate with the repair estimate and honest about things that MIGHT pop up in their diagnosis. I recently replaced my clutch on the Van (not bad after 240K miles) and priced it at other shops. They were not the lowest (by about $100), but I took it there anyway because the Vanagon is an odd bird and they know exactly what to do. As the other reviewer noted, the facility is far from white-glove clean. In fact, the waiting room is filled with dirty old car seats, disorganized papers, and van/vw ""art"" -- I recommend dropping of the vehicle and coming back later. Bottom line, they know what they are doing and don't overcharge their customers.
Pros: Heavily experienced in VW Vanagons -- know what they are talking about/doing!
Cons: Dirty waiting room and facility overall
