Welcome! It's our goal at KAPPS EUROPEAN SERVICE CENTER LLC to always provide the best Volkswagen service and high-quality workmanship at a fair price in Pleasant Grove, UT. We specialize in the service and repair of your European made vehicle. Our European auto repair shop has been equipped with all the necessary tools and electronics, to maintain and communicate with your vehicle's engine, accessory control modules and computers. Our technicians have Associates in Applied Science degrees, in Automotive Technology. Our continual training, is focused on your Volkswagen models. This has allowed us to obtain specific, directed knowledge, toward these cars. With our years of experience, we have seen the evolution and changes of these cars and their engines. Our clients, benefit greatly from our knowledge and keeping our skills specialized. We treat your car the way we treat our own cars. As it has been quoted before "one technician can not know everything about every car and model, but he can have success from focusing and specializing in a select few cars and models." Those one stop shops that claim to fix it all, can not know how to properly repair every vehicle ever made, or even hope to keep up with the ever changing information and tools. In fact, most of the time, after a car owner goes through much time, trouble, and money, their vehicle ends up at KAPPS EUROPEAN SERVICE CENTER LLC, to be properly diagnosed and repaired.
We are able to quickly and accurately, diagnose your vehicle the first time, saving you time and money. Making the proper "up to the minute, accurate repairs", that are backed by our one year 12,000 mile warranty, on parts and labor*.
We only use the finest parts available. 99% of the time, that is going to be the factory parts. Otherwise, we use upgraded aftermarket parts that have been engineered to exceed the factory parts. You can be assured that only the very finest parts are used. The dealership parts department are limited to only what is available to the manufacturer, we are not restricted in this way. If there is a better solution available, we will use it, and save you money.
Not being restricted to only factory authorized parts, and/or repairs, allows us to also specialize in high performance engine and car modifications, e.g. try out our new car scales & track alignment equipment and have your car corner balanced, or an alignment setup for the track**. We actively participate in both "Club Racing", and in High Performance Drivers Education days at the Larry Miller Motorsports Park race track, along with other western state race tracks. We have a HPDE driving instructor for several track clubs, like PCA, who works at our shop too. We have built and do currently maintain many track cars and full race cars. This has allowed us to show case our knowledge and background in understanding from mild to track wild, modifications for your Volkswagen models.
*all warranty work must be checked and performed by Kapps European Service Center LLC.
**must have adjustable suspension for corner balancing (maybe you just want to know your car's weight?.)
