Question DetailsAsked on 5/23/2011

Anyone know a reputable mechanic for a 1974 Beetle in San Francisco?

Speaking of classic VWs, my 1974 Beetle and I are searching in vain for a knowledgeable, reasonable, and creative mechanic and/ or garage here in San Francisco, California. Before moving to the (ahem) Big City I had the pleasure of a working relationship with an absolute Wizard VW mechanic-- I'm sure most of you VW owners, past and present, have known someone like him: fix anything, absolutely fair and trustworthy, would even rescue you from the roadside on occasion. All this from his driveway and backyard! While I don't expect to encounter anyone quite so down-home and wizardly here in SF, I am hoping that some of you Angie's List members can help point me in the right direction for a mechanic or garage that isn't intimidated by or completely ignorant of classic VWs and their quirks. From bad weather to vandalism, the last four years in SF have been rather rough on the Beetle, and I'd like to take her to someone I can trust to treat her with care and kindness, since I'd like to keep her running for another 30 years or so. Thanks to all for your help with this!

Hi BeetleKid,

If you haven't already, check the List under Auto Service or Auto Body Work. Read through the company profiles to see if any mention a specialization in VW's or classic cars. You could also read some of the reports to see if anyone reported having work done on a similar car. You're probably thinking that this might take a while to read through every auto company on the List. To save some time, contact us and we'll do the hard part for you. Find your local contact info here.

I hope that helps!
