    My 99 Subaru Legacy started shaking violently while driving home. I dropped it off after hours, then stopped by in the morning on Saturday to give them the key. They were moving equipment to the new location that morning (from 420 Main St,), so they weren't actually open, but John (the shop manager) said they would look at it that day if I really needed it. I told him Monday would be fine, and asked him to give me a call when he knew what the deal was. Around 9 am Monday, John called me and let me know the bad news. My engine was toast. (Which wasn't a surprise-the car had over 200k miles on it) When I stopped by to pick the car up on Tuesday, John gave me a substantial discount on the diagnostic fee. (Out of pity for my poor dead Subaru I think). This isn't the first time I brought the car to Johnson's. In fact, I would say the mechanics there are the only reason I made the last 40k miles on the car. I brought the car in a few times before expecting it to be dead, and they magically revived the beast.

    Walser Nissan Wayzata
    After a few hundred miles of driving the vehicle, a number of problems came up and I had the truck looked at by an independent service tech. The oil was far from fresh, the transmission oil was low and grossly overdue for a change, the coolant was probably the factory original and it was low, and the security system was clearly improperly installed. After complaining that I hadn't received confirmation of the service inspection, the salesman sent me a "receipt" for the inspection that indicated an oil change had been performed. No other inspection information was included. As far as the defective security system, I was told "enjoy your truck."
    This was the first (and last) vehicle I've purchased from a dealer in 30 years. There is clearly no advantage to buying a Nissan product from an official Nissan dealer or in obtaining service from their facilities. After investing another $1,000 in the truck, it seems to be a great vehicle; which I would expect of a Nissan. However, I'll never set foot in Wazetta Nissan again. I'd recommend you avoid them, too.

    Big Victor's Automotive

    After being told by the two VW dealers in Albuquerque, Uptown Volkswagen and University Volkswagen and Mazda, and the supposed VW independent experts (Hans Foreign Car Service, Los Lunas) that I needed to spend $8,000 to $9,000 for a new transmission, I lucked into a shop that couldn't fit my RV into their shop but did confirm the transmission was fine while the transmission and engine computers were the problem. I limped away from Albuquerque south to Truth or Consequences/Elephant Butte where the weather was warmer and we could camp at the state parks while I tried to fix my RV.

    Thanks to a local boat shop, I was introduced to Victor Cano-Linson who put in an incredible effort to figure out the problem where the so-called VW experts had failed. Over a couple of weeks chasing parts and figuring out that two system computers (the transmission control unit, TCU, and the engine control module ECM) had been soaked by VW's inability to properly route and protect their electronics from water. VW has obsoleted both computers and they are not available from any source. The ECM was repairable by a thorough cleaning. The TCU was more damaged. Victor and I disassembled the module, repaired the connector, and rerouted a couple of connectors to bring the computer back to life. 8,500 miles later, the RV is running strong and problem-free. Total cost for that service, replacing the transmission fluid, and a few other minor repairs over the winter, less than $600.

    True story:

    Back in mid-March, we were enjoying our last weekend at Riverbend Hot Springs before heading back to Minnesota. A couple from Missouri who worked at the resort were taking a break in the springs and we started talking about our various RV ordeals. I explained how we'd pretty much assumed we'd be disposing of our VW-powered Winnebago for pocket change until we lucked into a "genius mechanic in Elephant Butte" who saved our butts and put us back on the road with as much confidence as we'd ever have in a VW product.

    They said, "Victor?"

    While this was the latest service I've had at Perry's place, it wasn't by any stretch the only time I've taken our cars to him. When we moved to Roseville in 1996, I dropped off my 1973 Toyota Hilux pickup for Perry to look at the brakes. A month later, in his spare time, he'd figured out the multiple sources of fluid and pressure loss and that truck served me for another 50,000 miles (out of a total of 388,000) before I sold it. Since then, Perry has worked on every vehicle I've owned and he is always reasonable, efficient, and dependable. Not only is Roseville Auto Service the place I recommend to anyone who asks and quot;do you know a good mechanic?and quot; I consider Perry a good friend who has made our life in Minnesota a lot more pleasant.

    German Motorwerke

    After discovering the two VW dealers in Albuquerque were clueless when it came to VW repairs and the local "expert" (Hans Foreign Auto, Los Lunas) were just as useless, I lucked into Ricardo and the German Autowerkes guys. Unfortunately, they could not fit my RV into their service bays and at the time Albuquerque was in the grip of an abnormal winter storm with freezing rain and snow piling up. Because Ricardo had promised me he'd give it a shot, he and his guys took turns working on the VW in the ice storm. They discovered the location (contrary to VW's service manual information) of the ECM (engine control module) which was drenched in water, cleaned the connectors, and got the RV sort of back to life. They saved me at least $8,000 over what the VW shops had quoted for an unnecessary transmission replacement.
