We recommend Volkswagen (some say Volkswagon or VW) cars are serviced at yearly intervals at least, so that all performance and safety features - brakes, engine, transmission system, etc - are working at their best and safest. Overlooked areas are often brakes, engine and transmission fluids as well as the filters of airconditioning systems. Especially for people susceptible to allergies, we highly recommend to have these looked at with your yearly service.

European wheel alignment services

Every car is different and this is particularly true for European cars where your run-of-the-mill garage will not have as much experience as a European vehicle specialist. To further improve on this specialist area, we are the only mechanic to introduce specialist European wheel alignment services. We have heavily invested in state-of-the-art equipment for our wheel alignment service. Please talk to us about this service today.


Some of the most common models include

VW Golf

The worlds second most sold car model, this car has been reinvented over and over again and keeps getting better and better. A wide range of 4th to 8th generation models is driven in New Zealand and we service and repair this car almost every day. Owners of 2008-2010 models will benefit from comparing manufacturer provided services with our European specialist services, while not having to pay for the overhead of one of the world leading car manufacturers.

Contact us today if you have a VW Golf and require advice or services.

VW Passat

A large family car, this also is a best seller with over 15,000,000 cars sold worldwide. Particularly enjoyed as a station wagon, the Passat is among the best Eurpoean family vehicles. Currently the 6th generation models are widely used on New Zealand streets and owners can benefit from comparing our specialist European expertise to the usually more expensive manufacturer service centres.

VW Touareg (W12, V10TDi, R50, V6, V6 TDi)

When a European car manufacturer develops as sports utility vehicle the results are often astounding. This is a joint development of Audi, Porsche and VW engineers, resulting in a mid size SUV that shares its platform with Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7. An excellent SUV with the handling of a sports car.


VW Transporter commercial vans

Classed as a medium sized light commercial vehicle - this work horse is now in its 5th generation and increasingly popular among Bay of Plenty trade and service companies as well as. These cars are regular guests in our service centre and we can provide expert European service and advice.
