Need Indy VW/Audi Shop - Cleveland

I am tired of dealing with the local stealership. Does anyone know of a good independent VW/Audi shop in the Cleveland area?

Eleven-

I see you have a V10 TDI as well. Where do you go for service?

I have been to Ganley in Bedford. No problems with their service. My goal is just to make sure that I am dealing with a good tech that really understands what they are working with.

What city do you live in?

I'm over on the east side. I use Ganley for warranty work and routine maintenance. However, I was given the name of a mechanic who has a location in Chagrin Falls. I'm going to check him out soon and report back.

I was at Ganley last week and the porter mentioned that they rarely see the V10's. He said there was one other customer with a V10 and he lives on the east side of town. Sounds like it could be you.

I am picking up a VW Real Driver / Easy Care warranty. My concern is that if there is dispute in coverage, that Ganley does not have the experience necessary to properly diagnose the problem. I may need to rely on them for an expensive warranty repair and might need them to go to bat for me.

Whom is your service writer at Ganley? Can you recommend any of the tech's?

Any advise is greatly appreciated.

I'm right in the middle of trying to resolve an issue with them. I'll let you know how it turns out and provide additional details based on their response.

Good to have another V10 in the area. If you ever have them change the oil, just remember to call ahead to make sure they have the right oil in stock.
