  • “These guys are simply the best. They've worked on several old VW's for me, including a full restoration on my 70 Karmann Ghia and I wouldn't take my cars anywhere else.”

    Herb B.
  • “The Hick’s VW Service Center has provided all the maintenance for our VW Beetle for over 5 years. When we came to Hick’s VW, our car had been to local dealer service centers, and had no acceleration and did not perform like it should. We had considered trading it. Now our 2002 Beetle has over 230,000 miles, and Hick’s Service Center have the only mechanics we allow to perform maintenance on our car. They have replaced the timing belt and serpentine belt, replaced the brakes, performed transmission servicing, replaced engine vacuum hoses and water pump, and fixed assorted light/switches/error codes. They have provided the best service ever for a vehicle I have owned. If you truly want your VW in expert hands this is the only place to go. They treat us like family!”
