Out of State Parents Trust European Auto Tech

As an out of state parent of a U of A student I am compelled to sing the praises of European Auto. I am extremely pleased with the service performed on my daughter’s Volkswagen. It gives me a little less to worry about knowing she has such a great place to have her car serviced. Thanks

It’s never fun to take your car in to the mechanic, but everyone at European Auto Tech is wonderful. They are fair, honest, even showed us the broken parts on our car and have always treated us well and with respect. As long as I have my car, they will always be the people I will take it to. Highly recommended!

I have been dealing with European Auto Tech for at least 8 years. I tell everyone who asks, or does not ask, that I think European is the best. They take care of me and my Jetta. They are honest, reliable, wonderful customer service and will only deal with them…not the dealerships. John, Dana and Jeff are outstanding. Proud to be a European Customer!

Pam Birmingham
European Auto Tech Client

I have been a client for several years and have received excellent, dependable service from all including; Dana,Linda and Mark. Last year I had my front brakes replaced (Mercedes S430) and they continued to squeak for months afterward. John guaranteed his work (under warranty) and Mark appropriately replaced the faulty parts at no cost to me. Car wash is a professional touch too! 5 Stars!

Your service is always fantastic. The techs went above and beyond in helping us check out the car that my parents ended up buying for me.

Thanks for the great service.

Thank you card to European Auto Tech in Tucson, AZ

My car seems to be working great… You found the issues and didn’t try to talk us into anything we didn’t need or want done. We had a great experience with this repair so far. Very informative and we knew every job that the mechanic was doing because of the estimate that was given. We will return if the need strides.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this business to a friend.

Chad Morrison
European Auto Tech Client

European Auto Tech is not like the others – they actually listen to their customers! While troubleshooting a weird, complex problem, they involved me in the process of finding a solution. My hunch told me that the solution was something different than simply replacing an electronic module. Mark, my technician, was persistent and found the root cause of the problem an offered a safe, innovative and inexpensive solution that seems to be working perfectly! Well done!

Gregg Montijo
European Auto Tech Client

For a half dozen years, we have received such good care from European Auto Tech. I trust them. I am loyal to them. They stand behind their work. Their mechanics are terrific. They are straightforward about costs. Their estimates are spot on. Dana, their people-person, is a treasure! She is precise, thorough, patient. She makes sense of mechanical matters; she’s always quite clear on costs; and always provides a detailed and comprehensible explanation of what has been done and what is recommended to be done. I never depart without a printed estimate of the mechanics suggested work.

This wandering Seattleite got some work done at European on North First here in Tucson-as a matter of fact the roadhaus van was in there at the same time. Nice people, good service and cute receptionist to boot.

Hi All, just wanted to touch base with you guys and let you know how well the car is running. Big Mark did such an awesome job putting everything back together. It starts, runs, stops, steers perfectly. I have put almost 2,000 miles since moving to Las Vegas…NO DRIPS…You all did such a great job and treated me so well over the 5 months my car was at your shop I felt like an update was in order. Thanks again so much for making my car what I wanted it to be. P.S. living in Vegas is a trip!!

Thanks again

We’ve had several vehicles serviced here over the years including our ’86 Vanagon, a 2006 Golf TDI and even my ’78 Unimog. The mechanics are very very good and the customer service is great even if you are in a pinch and need a tow. Definitely the best automotive outfit we’ve experienced anywhere!

Like most people, I don’t enjoy performing vehicle maintenance and even less having to pay for it, but it is essential to maintain properly running vehicles. I found my experience with European Auto exceptional and first-class, they provided outstanding service, are well organized, friendly and would recommend them.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this business to a friend.

Thank You Card - Susan Eastman

While on a trip from Montreal (Canada) to SouthWest, in a 85 Vanagon Westfalia, we were heading back to Canada after having crossed the borderline from Mexico to Nogales, but we had to find another garage for another fuel filter, the third since the beginning of the trip, because of a corroded gas tank. We were close to Tucson, Arizona, and after we emailed, we got answered from Larry Chase, the founder of this website. He directed us to John Ranney, the owner of European Auto Tech, in Tucson, who changed the fuel filter, a small plastic white box with 2 different ends, for a bigger Bosch part used on BMW. He also made tests with a transparent gas line to see bubbles coming in the gas, because of a wrong place of a return tube in the bottom of the gas tank. John has been very kind with many details explained to me and my wife about the repairs. We also met Larry at he garage and shared our stories of trips through America. Very nice people to meet in Tucson!

Highly Recommended! John and Jeff are VW trained master mechanics and should be able to handle most anything on a Vanagon. Most of their business is on other platforms but they have been able to deal with everything from head replacement to general troubleshooting on my Van. Not the cheapest shop around but they stand behind their work. If you talk real nice to John and remind him that I sent yah he might even agree to use some of your parts …”once in a while” 🙂 Note … John has a Vanagon with a 3.3 Subie amongst his stable of rides. Don’t expect to camp out in his back lot, not that kind of shop 🙁 John is also a member of the Vanagon Resue Squad.

I’m currently traveling for 1.5 years in my 1990 Westfalia camper and the van recently started making bad clunking noises in southern Arizona. I called European Auto Tech and they told me to bring it in for a look.

The owner John quickly diagnosed the problem as the CV joints. They ordered new ones, which arrived a couple hours later, and they had the van repaired the same afternoon. There hasn’t been a noise since. While it was on the hoist, John also fixed a few other nagging problems, such as a leaky gas tank.

The service at European Auto Tech is excellent – both friendly and professional. (And yes, as someone else mentioned in an earlier review, the service manager is indeed cute). This is the best repair shop I’ve been to. John is a Westy enthusiast himself and has tricked out his van with a Subaru engine and Porsche transmission. Never before had I seen a Westy perform like a race car!
