Who's your favorite VW shop in northern New England
« on: April 19, 2008, 01:43:24 PM »
For those of us that are not mechanical but still can't live without our older VW, help is getting hard to find. One by one the local VW gurus are disappearing. I live in the White Mountains of NH and have a hard time finding someone who speaks VW. For the quirky problems that my 1979 throws in my path I need that expert who knows what every sputter and jerk means.
I'd love to find a directory similar to the Limbo TTT but full of independent VW specialty shops organized by state.

What do you think?

Gordi Davis at 4 Ever 4 in Keene, NH also is good from what I hear.  I have not used him, but have heard good things.......

There is a great place in Belfast Maine. Iain Pottle seems to be doing a lot of the work now but I think his dad, Allen, started it: The Beetle Shop 207-338-4656. Nothing fancy but lots of VW knowledge.

I also discovered this website while searching for info:
http://www.roadhaus.com/shops.php  
It's pretty cool. You can add a shop and/or post your reviews of the place. That's where I saw 4 Ever 4 listed and it got 2 good reviews.
