  • These guys are awesome! I called in because my car wouldn't start. They sent someone over to my house and he gave me a jump and escorted me to the shop; it turned out I needed a new battery. I was in and out of there in 20 minutes! Awesome customer service! Thanks German Car Depot!

  • I've owned VW's for the past 21 years of my life and you guys are the best VW mechanics I've ever met! The place is clean! The service is great! Everyone is friendly! And the dogs are awesome! My next car has to be a VW not only because I love the brand but because I need to be sure that I can still come to your shop! Thanks!

  • If you own a German car, there is no better repair shop in S. Florida than German Car Depot. The shop is immaculate, the entire crew is professional and courteous and the value and quality of work are second to none. Our '96 Cabrio is running like a new car again. Thank you again for the prompt and excellent service.

    My Volkswagen Jetta has not gotten 47 miles per gallon since the first year i got this TDI. Every person from the service writer, the young lady who orders the parts and the technician who did the work on my car all seemed very well trained and seemed to like working for Ollie The owner. PS: The bathroom was so clean and nice I was blown away . I would recommend you try German Car Depot.

    My Audi A6 is running great! I avoided a $3k transmission Prestige Audi said I needed. All the crew seem to enjoy working for German Car Depot. A white standard poodle at an auto dealership is crazy, but she was so clean and well behaved. Thanks you Ollie, you rock.

    Very happy with the overall service at German Car Depot. I have received valuable advise for, care and maintenance required for my Volkswagen TDI. I highly recommend German Car Depot. Lulu the white standard poodle shows how clean this shop is. I will be back even if my car does not need any work just to visit with Lulu.
