6 Ways to Find the Perfect Mechanic for a 2016 Volkswagen Jetta! – Palm Springs, CA

I’ve owned a wide array of vehicles, and while they’ve varied in make, model and year, they do all have one commonality – they need maintenance. While it would be easiest to suggest that you simply take your SoCal 2016 Volkswagen Jetta into the Coachella Valley Volkswagen service center, sometimes it’s not that easy. You may be moving, you may need work done and they’re backed up,  or you may just want to find a mechanic.

Even though I think you won’t need to get your 2016 Volkswagen Jetta worked on anytime soon for any major issues, maintenance is key. It’s best to find a knowledgeable, trustworthy mechanic for a 2016 Volkswagen Jetta that you call your baby (or whatever else you may have named your Jetta). Here are six easy ways you can start:

Check Local

Convenience is key when looking for a new mechanic, both yours and theirs. If you find a mechanic close to you, less time will be spent driving back and forth, you won’t miss appointments and you won’t have to pay a tow truck huge fees to get there. This makes you happy, your mechanic happy and this usually makes your service experience less of a hassle.

Get Specialized

You know your 2016 Volkswagen Jetta maintenance needs are special, and so do people who take the time to become a VW certified mechanic in Palm Springs. Find a shop that specializes in German autos, and you’ll never have to worry whether your mechanic knows how to work on your car.

Check Reviews

Before even going to the shop, check online reviews concerning the service and pricing for the mechanic you’re thinking of going to. If someone has a pattern of say, overcharging for something simple, you’ll notice that trend in the reviews.

Ask Around

If you own a Volkswagen, you probably go to VW shows or know other VW owners! They’d love to talk shop with you, guaranteed.

Look for a BBB Rating

If you can’t find any reliable reviews online, check the Better Business Bureau for any ratings or complaints. They’re the most trusted resource and, if they have a good rating, you’re golden.

Ask About Warranties

A good shop guarantees their work, so ask what their policies are and what warranties they guarantee for repairs done. A shop that stands behind its work is one that isn’t messing around!


Now that we’ve covered the bases of finding a mechanic (at your Palm Springs VW dealership, of course) for your new 2016 Volkswagen Jetta, we’ll need to give it the spotlight it deserves outside of the service department. After all, who can resist a compact sedan that gets up to 39 MPG on the freeway!? This is one vehicle that any mechanic will be happy to service for you, whether it’s an oil change or a tune-up!
