I cannot tell you enough about the professionalism and great experience I had with Dave. I drove from Florida to Utah in my 70 Double Cab all the while experiencing problems with what I thought was gas/Vapor lock problems. Without saying, I am sure Dave moved me to the front of the line to fix my car and after a solid 2/3 days of work he solved the problem with my Double Cab. Drove back to Florida and did not experience even a little bump in the road...perfect work. He is very professional, exceptionally nice to speak with and it was very inexpensive for all the work he did....this was the best VW shop I have ever taken one of my cars to and I am 73 years old...thanx Dave.

I've got a 69 Bus and a 69 Bug. While I've used other good VW mechanics in the area over the years, with no complaints, VGM are now my go-to guys. It feels less like a shop and more just like dropping by to see down-to-earth friends who also just know everything there is about vintage VWs. And I love that that's all they do-\-\VWs. They are never in a hurry to listen, explain things, and if they have the time, they are happy to just chat. They treat the die hards and the newbies with the same respect. Dr. Dave is very involved with our several local Facebook VW groups/clubs and is always offering helpful advice, tips, tricks, and suggestions. Dr. Dave and his team are not "just" mechanics, t...  more>>

In a word, if you are going to have a vintage VW in Utah County, you *need* to know Dave. Even if you don't need any help restoring, repairing or maintaining your VW, you will benefit from knowing Dave. For those who, like me, barely know a feeler gauge from a torque wrench, Dave is the man who will keep your car alive and happy. He is knowledgeable, honest, conscientious, and fair.
