I have been there twice for my VW jetta 2001 GLS. I had a broken parking break cable for the first time. Before going to Wooding's, I did a multi-point inspection at the VW dealer, however they asked for $450 to fix it. Then I went to two other garages. To my surprise, one said the problem was the brake rotor (asking for $350), the other said it was the caliper(asking for $750 !!). Then I came to woodings, they told me the parking break cable was broken, and asked for $200. I did the service and the car ran well.
For the second time my oil pan was stripped. I sent my car to speedy for oil change, but they said they couldn't do it and asked me to send the car to VW dealership. Then VW dealer told me the oil pan has to be replaced and asked for $600. I called Bill at woodings and he told me that they could replaced the oil pan for $400. But VW dealer told me that I couldn't drive the car because they couldn't put the oil pan back, they might have a temporary solution for it but it still cost $170. I insisted that they do not do anything to my car and asked AAA to tow my car from VW dealer to Woodings. However, after checking my car, Bill and Yau fixed it without replacing the whole oil pan. They only asked for $130 for it. And they were very patient to explain to me how they could fix the threads of the oil pan.
I recommend woodings to all my friends with VWs, and I believe it is the best choice for all VWers at Boston.
