I'm happy to report they are knowledgeable, prompt, courteous and price competitive. The waiting room, which I use for each visit, is clean, comfortable and welcoming. They get a two thumbs up from my discerning point of view. You should give them a try without hesitation. I have not experienced or seen any of the negative reports that I find listed on this site written by some others. And be assured, I am a true patron, not an employee. Dr. A

The early Audi CVT transmissions are notoriously bad and I figured mine was shot. I called VAP and spoke to the owner, Mark, on the phone and described my issue. He told me to bring the car in. He to,d me right up front that if it was tge transmission, they are hard to find and costly to rebuold, about $ 4000.00. From my research on the internet, this price was spit on. We left the car there in April of 2015 and returned to our home up north. A week later Marl called and said that the transmission was fine, the engine eas misfiring on 3 cylinders, and that he had fixed the problem. The bill - $600.00. While he had the car I had them replace tge timing belt and water pump as well as the transmission fluid, all reccommended maintainence by Audi at 100,000 miles - which was where my car was at, as well as an oil change. The total bill came to $2800.00. I was very pleased. The car runs great. Last week we were down and the check engine light came on. I called Mark and he to,d me to bring the car in and he would check it for me. He hooked it up to the computer as soon as we arrived and said it was a nothing to be concerned about and he reset the onboard computer. There was no charge. This is an honest shop run by very nice people. I will never take my car anywhere else.
