Felipe and Carlos do a great job of keeping my 87 Vanagon safe and road worthy. They are also a pleasure to be around and work with. Highly recommended.

Felipe at 523Rods is super-knowledgeable about Westfalia vans, owns one himself and has a straightforward and honest approach to his business. His labor rates are very competitive and he was very attentive and responsive to my inquiries and requests. I am super pleased with the work that has been done so far and will DEFINITELY choose 523Rods for all future work and service on my 1984 Westy. There is no reason to go anywhere else..523Rods is the place!

Best VW service ever. The whole team at 523Rods is top notch. I've had several squarebacks, buses and beetles over the last 20 years. Most of the time mechanics are not that nice (or are waaaay too nice because I'm a woman), they don't bother to explain what is happening— the problem nor the solution. I appreciate the straight-forward and thorough way Filipe handles business. Thanks so much. I look forward to bringing my 67 Bug back anytime it needs anything! (And I plan to keep this one!)
Business Response:

Yay! That sounds like a good plan Oriana, she's a classic. Thanks so much. 👍

Felipe's work is excellent and thorough. We can always count on what he does, which means a lot to me since we have a vintage 1987 Westy conversion. I know that when we take her on a long trip she is ready to go and I don't have to worry that something will go wrong because it wasn't noticed. I have been driving vans and Westys since 1967, and mostly did the repairs and engine work myself. Now that I don't any longer I've been so grateful to have someone to count on. Thanks Felipe!!
Business Response:

You're very welcome Andrea.
