VCarShops was created with the goal of being the most useful and most comprehensive directory of independent Volkswagen repair shops online. You don't want to take your car to just any garage: you want an expert, and we're here to help.

If you're like me, you know the value of expert service, but don't want to pay a fortune at the dealer. You can get the dealer-level expertise at an independent repair specialist — in fact, many independent shop owners and technicians have dealer experience.

It is my hope that this site helps you enjoy your Volkswagen for years to come.
