If you own a VW, you'll be astonished at the honesty, quick response and competitence of Mike Iacono's repair. The first time I went to his shop, I told him I needed brakes all around and lef thte car there and he called me 2 hours later and said I only needed the front pads replaced and it would cost $90. This was half the price of my other quotes and he could have easily replaced all and I would have gone along. The next time I wanted a tune up and he did the whole job for $42 and the lowest quote I got any other place was $125.
I used to go to Parents Garage on Lyndale Ave south but they had repair delays, additional charges, and were much more expensive. Iacono is great for one off repairs and schedule maintenance. He doesn't have the computerized diagnostics that the VW dealers have (that makes me suspecious of them) but he is a VW specialist and he knows his stuff. He will order parts and also find inexpensive solutions if you have an emergency like a transmission problem and very little budget.
