Latest Check-Ins

Good place for fix your vw, they are professionals, and also good price. We were very well attended by all, especially Mr. Rogelio, owner of the shop. We recommend.

Sometimes people makes the difference and Rogelio with his team really did it ! We are travelling with an old VW combi and in one week they were able to fix our engine + others stuffs for a good price. We bought this van in Puebla and we have been already in a lot of garage but for us Geraldo VWs is the number ONE ! Glad we met him and now we are back on the road !

This is a very good mechanic place for all the vw family ,the owner been so generous with of he's time and knowledge with us and all the crew is '' muy profesional '' .!!!

I would recommend with no hesitation!

Just a quick visit for us to get some window cranks after ours broke. We dealt with Rogelio. Parts were cheaper and better than the ones I bought from gowesty before the trip, which broke on us. Rogelio speaks good English and was super friendly. They close down for 2 weeks for Christmas so if you're here then, you might be SOL.

Mala experiencia, no puedo recomendar. Despues haber esperado cinco dias para una cita, Rogelio me ha hecho correr porque he hablado con el mecanico (itentando de evitar que el pone el gato en un punto no apto y peligroso). Me ha hablado bien rudo sin necesidad (“callate y vayate!”). Es uno de estos talleres parecidos a Estado Unidos donde no quieren que ves que hacen, y de verdad, no los importa tanto que quieres tu que piensan ellos que hay que hacer. Me encanta mi vehiculo (Kombi Westfalia 1984) y no voy a tomar el riesgo que alguien lo daña como resultado de su orgullo arogante. Tampoco no sirve su oferta que “si danamos tu carro, te pagamos”. Prefiero qu no lo dañamos en primer lugar, muchas gracias.

Bad experience, can't recommend. Waited five days for an appointment only for him to literally throw me out of his workshop. He got rude and I left.

What happened? One of his mechanics was about to lift my Vanagon with the jack being put at a dangerous and unsuitable spot, so I asked for it to be put elsewhere. No problem with the mechanic, but manager Rogelio then pointed at one of many "no access to workshop area!" signs, and rudely told me to talk to him and none of his mechanics. This clearly wasn't about safety in the workplace but about the manager's pride, and I won't risk my vehicle being damaged by that. He literally told me to shut up and get lost. In my opinion, if you do good work, there is no need to make a secret about it, and his arrogant attitude shows little respect (put mildly) for people who love their vehicle, like most overlanders do.

That said, if you're okay with leaving your car with them and them not really being interested in what you want, come here.
But it won't come as a surprise to you that I advise you to avoid this place.

Actually a real mechanic. And we've been too many of them here in Mexico. Usually they tend to be very chaotic and the tools get lost in the trash all the time. Not in this shop though. And even if you need a complete overhaul he's your guy. He even does machining and has all the spare parts for every Volkswagen engine. He's a nice guy and speaks good English. And if you got a little time he can get you even all the body parts. He charges more than average but it's still alright.

Good place for any kind of car repairs or maintenance at reasonable prices. The owner is very friendly and helpful and his staff did a good and efficient job.

Kind, honest and affordable - everything you'd want in a mechanic. Rogelio fit us in last minute - super awesome guy. He speaks fluent English too. They performed a full suspension inspection, fixed a broken front wheel bearing and did an oil change for us$65 in one day.

Nice guy. They did some welding for us on our 1987 Syncro. They have a lot of spare parts as well. Price was reasonable. Every agreement we made he kept.

Excellent mechanic! Taking great care of our van. Will update with detail and price after he is finished. The marker on here is wrong. He is on Modero not Allende. Right across from Baja Paradise
