New to the site...glad to have found it!

My New Beetle is beginning to need some mechanical attention... >222,000 miles now. Still plenty to go, but it's getting a little sluggish. Had a vacuum line repair in the spring, suspect maybe more? Or the MAF maybe? Anyway...I live in a fairly rural area, the closest dealer is 45 miles, and frankly they have not impressed me with their efforts to do the least amount of work necessary for a given repair...I'd love to find a reputable shop in the area that I can drop off the car with a vague 'get it back to snuff' instruction without worrying about fending off offers to repair the knudsen valve etc...

I'm in Southern MD, so the whole DC/Annapolis area is fair game...

I've found that "reputable shops" are hit or miss. Unfortunately there's no better way to get recommendations so below are some that others have tried: Call them and ask them some questions and see if they know what you are talking about and are polite.

There's another guy, I'll send you his contact info in Private Messages so that spambots don't pick it up.
