My car had extensive damage after the accident and he took care of everything! The repair took longer because of Irma and as the car was getting repaired- other damages were found. This was reasonably priced- taking into consideration that VW parts are expensive and insurance was not covering this. I wouldn’t take my car anywhere else! I definitely trust this auto shop and their quality work! My vehicle looks better than before the accident and I am a happy customer!! ”
