My first "new" car was a Volkswagen. I loved my VW, but it always needed a lot of expensive repairs. For several years after purchase, I was driving to Des Moines or Mason City to dealerships for repairs because I was told that only dealerships had the proper diagnostic equipment. Well after a recommendation from someone I know I was turned on to Campus Garage. These guys did EXCEPTIONAL work on my Volkswagen at prices much lower than I would have paid at the dealerships.I wish I would have known about the quality repairs that these guys do a lot earlier. I would have saved thousands of dollars and hours of my time. Campus Garage is honest, and works to find ways to save you money. They worked hard to find a refurb transmission that fit my budget for repairs. If you own a European import, don't leave Ames for repairs. Take your car to Campus Garage. They are fast, fair, and honest. There's a reason there are so many cars stacked out in front of their business. Their customers know a good thing.
