    VW Dealer that is not posted?

    Anyone know of a VW dealer that is not posted in the madison/milwaukee area?

    Zimbrick in Madison is posted but the sign is very hard to see from outside. Boucher in Janesville is posted according to friendorfoe.us so I would assume the other Boucher locations are as well.

    EVS?
    Hall?

    Contact VW and ask them if there are any dealers in the area that respect your right to self defense.

    What do you need done? as long as it isn't warranty work, go to www.jasontdi.com and he will treat you right and save you money.

    Tell him I sent you.

    Not getting off topic Paul, but I work at a dealership (not VW) and aftermarket shops are not always cheaper than dealerships. I have many times been told by a customer that they spent hundreds (in some cases thousands) of dollars trying to get something fixed and finally was told "we cant fix it, see the dealer" and we not only fixed it right but they are amazed that it only cost "X" dollars.

    Dealerships have specifically trained techs, we aren't trying to work on 50 different makes and have "general" tools. We have state of the art diagnostic equipment, tools made to work on that specific make of car and techs that see these cars all day, every day. Dealerships also stand behind their work, our warranties are usually 1 year or 12,000 miles parts AND labor. Most aftermarket shops may warranty the part for 3 or maybe 6 months but not the labor.

    There are times when an aftermarket shop may be cheaper but not always.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    Please note, I said "HE will save you money". I know Jason personally and he will be cheaper than any VW dealership I have ever seen and he will personally stand behind the work. Jason only works on VWs and used to only work on TDI VWs (not sure if he actually works on gassers) so he knows what he is doing.

    Another option if it's for non-warranty service is this guy in Madison that's on the side of the Radio Doctor building on the east side.

    I was there to inquire about a part for my ex-wife's car recently and they were not posted.

    I didn't say aftermarket places were not qualified, just not always cheaper. There are dealerships out there that will "add on" you to death, so you do need to know how to say NO. On the flip side there are a lot of aftermarket places I have run into that will burn you like an open flame too.

    Someone who will not only work on a VW and is good at it is kinda hard to find.

    I have known Ben for years (since he worked at that other shop...). If I was to let someone else even touch one of my cars, he would be at the top of the list. And last I talked to him, he liked guns!

    Anywho, I guess I should have been more specific in my original inquiry. I am looking to BUY a car, not get one fixed.
