Verified CustomerJune 18, 2014

Excellent service, fast repairs, amazing explanations, dealer quality without dealer prices. Richie and Tania were courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Sebastian and the tech crew were experienced and fast with their expertise on the repairs!

Verified CustomerJune 12, 2014

This service center claims that their technicians are VW/Audi experts, and that they're dealership quality, but when I had my Audi serviced for an induction cleaning and oil change, they did not properly reset my ecu to read my oil level, and they also did not properly secure the underbody of my which completely was hanging lose, and was dragging. I then notice that all of my screws to secure it were missing, I had to take time and gas to drive back to them cause I don't live close to them, and they did not offer an explanation just a very weak apology and secured it, but can I trust them after such a novice mistake that could have been dangerous cause the underbody did come loose on the highway and could've completely come loose and maybe cause an accident or serious damage to my car or others on the highway.

Verified CustomerJune 11, 2014

I have been going to German Car Depot for over 10 years and have yet to have a bad experience.

Verified CustomerJune 08, 2014

Extremely expensive. They almost never have a loaner. Better of going with the Dealer. I was charged $700 for a fuel pump, never going there again.

Verified CustomerJune 04, 2014

Great communication from Richie & staff; dependable service, warranty back up, good online deals.

They fixed my car with a refurbished part which I had agreed to. But then the part failed which was out of their control. They replaced the part (4 hours labor) without charging me. On top of that they provided a loaner during the repair. I really appreciate the customer service they provided.

Verified CustomerMay 04, 2014

I referred my wife and she was pleased with the service.

Verified CustomerMay 03, 2014

The price was good the service was good but they did miss two items and could not fix the tire sensor said it was a dealer item.

Service quote in detail before work is done. There are no big surprises. The service is excellent.

October 30, 2010

The crew at GCD were very professional courteous, and honest. They even let me look at the old parts that were replaced and explained the reason why it was good that I had them replaced. I will definitely bring my car back here for future services. My care is six years old and I feel very confident in the service performed on my car. The free wi-fi was also a plus as it helped me to pass the time while waiting. Thanks GCD!

Once again i walk away from Vdepot-/German Car depot, with great satisfaction. The professionalism and the "go the extra mile "attitude I've received will always have me coming back for any and all service needs, not to mention high recommendations to any and all friends and German car owners.. To Alan and the crew,, Thank You very much. 2004 Audi A4
