When I was a child, my mother would take her Mercedes to an independent owned Mercedes certified dealer/mechanic in La Jolla. Back then you had a relationship with your German mechanic. Our families watch one another grow up and generations of drivers see the road. It was a special place, we love the Gietz family for keeping us on the road. That is how I feel at Pacific German. First of all, they are the best mechanic for VAG cars in Orange County, or anywhere as far as I know. They have worked on my GTI since I bought it near new in 2015 with ultra low miles. Since then they have put two exhausts on and completely rebuilt the whole car basically. They’re honest, hardworking, and most importantly they treat me like family along with a fair bit of dignity and respect. On top of that they try to save you money as much as they can and the work is done better than at the dealership. They care about their customers. I hope I can bring my children to this same mechanic one day when they first start driving. I’d feel safe with them in a car that was maintained by Pacific German.
