Here’s what some of our Weaverville, NC customers are saying about us:

This is probably the best VW shop in Western North Carolina. These guys are true professionals who care about their customers and really know what they’re doing. They have serviced our 2010 Jetta Sportwagen since it was new, keeping up with the correct maintenance schedule and fixing any and every issue that has come up for us. Our Jetta has actually had some very mysterious and tricky problems which Todd and the guys have tracked down and repaired. Their prices are fair and always much less than what any dealership would charge. Because of the Dieselgate issue we have had to take our car to the dealership in Asheville several times. Without a doubt, we feel that we get better service and a higher level of expertise with these guys. If you’re looking for honesty, integrity, expertise and a fair price, take your car to VW Specialties.

Steven Cruz Google Review

I was in Asheville from out of town when I noticed a smell of burning oil. I messaged VW Specialties who allowed me to bring my vehicle that same morning. It's a good thing I did as my car was leaking oil and not in driving condition. VW Specialties not only repaired my car, but offered to drive me to pick up a rental while mine was being serviced. What could have been a very stressful event was made smoother due to their understanding of my timeline and situation. Highly recommend...professional, kind and accommodating.

Great work, great prices, easy to get an appointment and knowledgeable people. Why anyone would even bother with a dealership is crazy!

Pete Henry VW Specialties Customer Review

I took my TDI Passat to them to check out the timing belt. They pulled the cover off and visually inspected it, and had me ready to go in about 10 minutes with a detailed report on its condition that let me know how soon I should replace it and why, and also discovered another problem I did not realize existed. I dropped it off with them about 6 weeks later and they did all the work promptly, and for $85 less than their estimated (and quite reasonable) price. How often does that happen? Plus they simply very nice and straightforward guys who don’t try to up sell you. They let me know I did not need a new battery that the local dealer said I did and saved me another $120.

These folks are good. One makes an appointment, gets a quote, and retrieves the vehicle in a reasonable amount of time. If there is an unexpected or unforeseen problem contact is quickly made. There are no surprises other than a reasonable cost. Nice.

Christopher Krupp Google Review

I have had bad luck with mechanics. Which is why I got a simple oil change at a specialty shop. I'm not implying that it was steep in price. The bay being outside in Weaverville was lovely.

Joe Kater Google Review

These folks have taken care of my wife's 04 tdi waggon for years now. They have proven time and time that they have our best interest in mind . They project our future needs for our car so we can budget our money for the next repair always paying attention to our safety. The shop is in Weaverville and you might think it is out of the way but I bet if you try it one time you won't go anywhere else . good people clean shop quality service

Mike Lane Google Review

Im very impressed with the honesty and hard work that the team at VW specialties does. I drive a 2013 bug. With that said, it comes with many odd things that seem to break on it. VW Specialties are always honest with me and fix the problem. Once they misdiagnosed the issue, but quickly fixed it AGAIN for FREE. They are top notch!

Michael Martin Google Review

FINALLY, a local auto repair shop that's both efficient and trustworthy! These guys have serviced my temperamental Audi on several occasions, always providing the best service anyone could ask for.

A few ways they consistently outshine others:
1. First, they take "walk-ins" (or tow ins!) and are usually able to get to your car in a reasonable time. Appointments are also available for scheduled maintenance. Comfortable and clean waiting area w/ restroom, hydration, and WiFi!

2. KNOWLEDGEABLE. They are able to quickly diagnose the vehicle, recommend a course of action, and give you an accurate estimate of repair costs. This quality is invaluable regarding auto repair. This saves you money ($), time, frustration and headache.

3. HONESTY. They're not salesmen. They tell you which repairs should be made now, which repairs can wait, and even which repairs are altogether unnecessary.

4. RELIABILITY. They actually CHECK BEHIND their own work to be sure everything is in order and working properly; going as far as test driving the car to be sure your car is repaired properly before you leave with it.

5. PRICING. Their charges are reasonable. I know, I know, you are probably looking for "cheap" pricing... but let me explain something about servicing German cars...If you take your VW/Audi to a "cheap" mechanic you will more than likely end up paying much more in the end. Here's why: They lack the KNOWLEDGE and TOOLS to service VW's / Audi's. Usually, they will spend much more time troubleshooting the problem, not to mention all the extra time to actually make the repair. THIS COSTS YOU MORE MONEY.

Save yourself the headache of taking your German car to a inferior mechanic. Save your wallet the expense of dealer pricing.

Take your VW or Audi here for the best servicing in the Asheville area! ...(I actually drive 50 minutes ONE WAY to VW Specialties for all of my Audi service needs, THATS how terrific these guys are!)

Alisha Patrick Google Review

They have kept my Touareg running great for many years. Great service at a fair price.

Deanna Lundgren Google Review

I had a great experience with VW Specialties. I had oil and coolant leaks, both of which were resolved quickly at a fair price. I couldn't ask for better service. Thank you guys!

Rick Maggio Google Review

They'll tell you straightforward what's wrong with your car, what needs to be done and what can wait. Very good to deal with I'm not taking my Jetta anywhere else!

Alexander Lundgren Google Review

I've been taking my 2003 and 2001 Volkswagens to VW Sepcialties since 2011. The work has been done correctly and at the quoted (very fair) price every time. I've never had to go back to have a "repair" repaired. The staff communicates very well and is always prompt with call-backs when they are busy. I would recommend anyone take their car to Todd and his team over the dealership any day. Since my first visit to VW Specialties I've never been back to the dealer.

Just like a doctor , always seek a 2nd opinion! Harmony charged 125.00 for diagnostic & got it wrong. Todd is far less and gets it right ! These guys know VW's. Trust him!

Tim Asher Google Review

Girlfriend took her car to the dealer and was told leaking head gasket $$$. Scheduled an appointment with Todd, he had diagnosed a leaking thermostat housing, repaired and she was on her way within an hour or so. Way Way less money and super honest mechanic. No BS, just fixed the problem at hand.

Nick McKinney Google Review

I am a life-long VW enthusiast who finally found the shop of her dreams! My car was repaired quickly, professionally, and they didn't try to sell me on a bunch of unnecessary repairs.

F Black Google Review

These guys (esp Todd) are super nice, efficient and great technicians. Refreshingly honest and very reasonably priced. We have a new repair shop!

Billy Luther Google Review

These guys are awesome. My Q7 A/C stopped working. Went to dealer, they claimed that compressor needs to be replaced, $3100 with parts and labor. Went to VW Specialties, they had it back up and running, for a whole lot less. Plus really honest. Would definitely recommend.

Andriy Yusha Google Review

On Thursday of last week my Honda Accord wagon broke down off Main Street in Weaverville and I discovered I was almost out of oil. After buying 5 qts from the local mechanic who wouldn't be able to work on it until the following week. A friend who owns a vw suggested that I give these guys a call to see if they'd be willing to help me out since they were only a few miles up the road and she raved that they were great. So I called around noon and Todd told me to bring it by around 4 which I did. He diagnosed the main problem and said the part could be there in the morning and I'd be able to get the car before the end of the next day...for about $65. Then he even gave me a ride to the Stoney Knob for pick up. True enough I was back in my car in 24 hours. I was so impressed with the integrity and quick service; especially considering I was not even a regular customer nor a volkswagon owner that I would go there again for sure.

Jo McKernan Google Review

I called VW Specialties when Harmony Motors couldn't figure out why our son's 2006 Passat's Engine Light wouldn't go off. I called Todd on Monday morning and he said he'd take a look at it. We dropped the car off at 3PM that same day and by 5 the car was ready. I was so pleased with their service and to top it off, he only charged me $58!! The engine light was out and we felt safe sending our son back to college with his car. Thank you VW Specialties!! We WILL be back. I encourage anyone with a VW to give these guys a try!!

Judi Fox Google Review

Todd is awesome! I've been going to vw specialties for years, ever since a friend recommended him to me. I haven't been to the vw dealership since.he doesn't do unnecessary work to overcharge. He explains everything in terms that are easy to understand. He always works me into his schedule quickly, answers his phone, and/or gets back to me promptly when I leave message. his prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend vw specialties!!!

We can't say enough about Todd and VW Specialties. After going through a nightmare with Harmony Motors, he quickly found our problem and fixed it at a fair price. We are so relieved to have found a quality and honest mechanic with great customer service. We will certainly spread the word! Hopefully we won't be back soon, but if we do need anything we will be back!

Take it from us -- skip the dealer, come here if you want it done right the first time! Thanks again!!

Rachel Thelen Facebook Review

Took my Audi A4 Turbo to Todd. Was having multiple problems. He did excellent work. Car runs flawlessly, and he didn't try to gouge me like so many other repair shops seem to do. Kept me informed throughout the entire process. Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Great folks, a certain dealership apparently wanted us to trade on a new car based on their quotes, but Todd and his crew got us going at a very reasonable price. Great folks!
