They are honest and have quick service.

Verified CustomerOctober 17, 2013

They fixed my car on multiple occasions. They're pretty honest. Like they only replace what they need replaced, and try to give a good deal when they can.

I took my vehicle to others and they made it worse . I took it here and they fixed it. Mike was able to diagnose and fix it and on my other vehicles as well. Mike's price is lower than the other stores.

Verified CustomerOctober 02, 2013

They have good service, good prices, and professional service. They did a good job on my car.

Verified CustomerSeptember 12, 2013

They were very helpful and knowledgeable and didn't try to stick it to me with their prices. They also gave me a ride home then offered to pick me up when my vehicle was ready. I feel they went above and beyond with what they really didn't need to do.

I have been to Autobahn Motorwerks a few times over the past 2 years. They are experienced and knowledgeable. Great customer service too. Definitely worth the few extra miles for a minor tweak or something more major.

February 18, 2015

fast friendly and honest. if you need work done on a volkswagon, this is the place. regular mechanics don't have the vw knowledge these guys have.

Short back story,

I had a less than stellar experience with another local VW/Audi shop involving a 4+ month wait for high performance injectors and a tune. After I finally got the injectors and had them installed, they started to come loose and leak compression past the injector "seal"? causing the car to run poorly. I barely made it to Autobahn Motorwerks.

I was originally going there just to have the car tuned for the injectors and larger turbo I had installed previous to the injectors, but now I needed the injectors reinstalled properly, and then the tune. Chris went above the call and well past the extra mile :-) He informed me that my timing was incorrect, and fixed it, the right way! He re-installed the injectors and vigorously test drove the car all morning to make sure they were done right. Then the tune was done, and redone and redone again according to extensive dataloging. Chris did not want to give the car back until he was happy with the tune. granted all this made the job run way longer than originally anticipated, thats ok because of the thoroughness of the repair process. To top things off, autobahn motorwerks has drivers side master switches in stock and mine was basically trash, I was able to get a sweet deal on one as I was leaving. So after exchanging some shop talk and miscellaneous business stuff I left as happy as the day is long!

The tune is phenomenal! worth every penny! More power, Better Mpg, More fun to drive and less guilt for doing so. Very Highly recommended!

Mike & Guys-
Just wanted to thank you all for the great job you did on my Audi A4 when you did the brake job. Now this isn't the first time I've had my car in with you. Over the years also had the Timing belt, Clutch, other maintenance items done, etc. I was looking on this site for my parents car (which is a another make) and I looked up your shop and saw that you can write a review. So I just wanted to write up one to let other people know that you guys have a great shop. You guys are honest, prices are great, highly knowledgeable, great techs, awesome owner, highest quality work and parts. I have been taking my Audi to you for years and I will never go anywhere else. Thanks Again - Bob L.

I have a 2004 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible. My poor car was not able to shift into 3rd gear. I was afraid to drive it, and I love my car. From the quotes I got from the local dealership I was afraid I was going to have to trade it in and get a "newer" car. In fact that was one of the options the dealership gave me. So I decided to try calling a few other shops to see if I could afford the repairs myself. My good friend recommended Autostaat. I called them and they were very friendly, I got in for an appointment right away. At my appointment they found the problem. My valve body in my transmission was the problem. The guys down there did an Amazing job on my car! It was fixed in a timely fashion. It was done professionally and now it drives Better than before! It is like having a New car, without trading my baby in! It also cost Way under what the dealership wanted to charge me. It was the best experience I have ever had at a mechanic. I feel completely comfortable as someone who doesn't know a whole lot about cars, to take my car into Autostaat and have them be Completely Honest with me. I just wanted to say Thanks guys for doing Such a Good Job and saving me from having to Trade in my Baby! I will see you guys next week for that brake job!

My 2000 VW Jetta was constantly giving me a check engine light and then flashing a message Emissions Workship. I made an appointment with Michael. He was always very prompt and courteous and called me back within a short period of me leaving him a message. He was not only able to fix the emissions workshop message for a more than reasonable price he was able to let me know of things I might consider doing. He did this in a way that was no pressure. A dealership would have made me feel like it has to be done ASAP. He did quality work and for an honest price. I felt comfortable with Michael and knew by his approach he was an honest mechanic. Thanks again for the great job.

I own a 04 Jetta and was having a few issues with it. I had taken it to another shop here in the valley and they wanted an arm and a leg to do the work on it. I was taking to a friend of mine who recommended autostaat, they said they had been taking their car there for years and the guys there are great and do not overcharge. Also my friend told me that they completely specialize in Volkswagen and Audi. So I called them and set up an appt. When I got there the technician Michael knew exactly what was wrong with my car, just from my describing the symptoms. As for price they were So affordable! They did the job in great time and my car has never run better. I will only be taking my car to Autostaat from now on and I wished I had listened to my friend beforehand, lol. If you live in the valley I Highly recommend this shop to Anyone with a VW or Audi! Thanks so much Michael!

Hey Guy's~ So far everything is still running flawlessly after all the parts that you installed. I finally went through my first tank of diesel and averaged 38mpg's with a good amount of spirited driving. During this next tank I'm going to do my best not to be so heavy on the accelerator to see if I can get the MPG's back in the 40's. I will be giving you a call to get the other things done on the car Asap! Thank you for all the hard work! You are the best technician I've had work on my VW and Highly recommend anyone else who needs a good, honest, great priced mechanic! Thanks Again!

My VW Passat's air conditioning recently died, in the 110 degree weather too. I took it to the dealer, to fix it they wanted $1400!!! So I looked around on the internet, the phone book, etc. I called a few other places but I really liked the way they were able to get me in right away, the price and their professionalism over the phone. It was also Significantly less expensive than the dealer. I am really really happy with this shop. I will be going to Autostatt from now on for anything my VW needs. I also Highly recommend this shop to anyone else who is looking for a VW shop. Thanks Autostatt.

I have been looking for a good mechanic for many years and I finally found the place. Even to just get an oil change for my 2004 Jetta, most places would shake their heads and send me away but not Autostatt. They were very reasonable for the work I had done. I paid a total of $680 for a waterpump, timing belt, and the 40,000 mile maintenance, and my car has 70,000 miles. I've taken it in to other non Volkswagen shops and the mechanics didn't have a clue. The mechanics knew exactly what was wrong with my car and promised same day service. At first I thought, yeah I heard that one before, but no, it was done at 3:30PM, 1 1/2 hours before they closed and I took it in that morning. What a great team they have. I never rate businesses on a positive note, but felt this was a necessity so if you have a Volkswagen, don't take it to any mechanic, take it to this shop, you'll be amazed at the customer service and the quality of their work. Thanks Autostatt!!!

I was in Desperate need of a shop to fix my VW. I had previously taken my car to a dealer that shall be unnamed. The last time it was at the dealer I paid so much money, I felt pressured into doing more work than I was comfortable with, the customer service was HIGHLY LACKING.

So when my car started having problems, I was dreading calling the dealer back up. My friend recommend Autostatt, I had never been anywhere but the dealer so I hesitantly called. I spoke with Michael and he was amazing! He was so knowledgeable, answered all my questions, gave me a Very reasonable quote and did not try to pressure me into making an appt. I decided to call around and Autostatt was the best price in town. I took my car down to their really amazing shop in Glendale. They have practically a show room with a comfy waiting room, which I was not expecting. Michael was there and explained exactly what they would be doing. He took the time to answer all my questions. My car was done on time, for a wonderful price and Michael was such a big help :) I will be back anytime my car needs anything! I Highly Recommend Autostatt as a place to take your VW!

Thanks again for all your work on the ignition coils for the A4. Your quick diagnosis and the way you went the extra mile really helped. Looking forward to seeing the new place at the next oil change.

Mike & Steve,

The Audi is running great. Thanks for squeezing me in despite the move. I do notice a difference with the timing belt corrections too. It seems to accelerate smoother and quicker and idles smoother as well.
