Jeb and Jim at Foreign Auto Service Techs (or FAST). We had a major fuel smell coming from the rear of our westy, but no signs anywhere of a fuel leak. Jeb found the problem quickly (broken venting hose connecter), and was able to fix it quickly and cheaply. This place does a heck of a lot of busness, and we saw many type 2's and vanagons in their parking lot. They're very understanding and helpful to travellers, and from us come highly reccomended.

Gearhart Motorworks out of Belen is good. I bought a bus from the owner's son that is excellent. They put in a new engine (they built), rebuilt cv joints, new scat shifter electronic ignition, and new brakes.

They are friendly, courteous, and put a lot of care into their work.

Last word has JVD located in New Mexico. These people are strictly rip-off artists. There are several posts on The Samba buyer-seller feedback regarding this business. The states attorney(s) for CA, AZ, are investigating as well as the FBI's internet fraud division. Just Vee Dubs should be avoided at all costs.
