      i was in tijuana earlier this week and i thought i'd visit their vw dealership since i needed a hazzard switch. their dealership is nice (nicer than most dealerships here in my area) and the people are very courteous. i got the part i need for half the price they go for here in the states and it was even installed for free. has anyone taken their car there for any type of service. if so, what was your experience like?

      The only experience I ever had in Tijuana was walking back across the border, through alleys with burning barrels at night scared out of my mind.

      yah i know what you talking about and i wouldn't walk that route as well. tijuana vw is in a nice part of the the town. it looked upscale with high rise buildings and a few other dealerships. its not too far from that complex where you'll see blockbuster video, fridays and other nice shops and restaurants. this area is sooooo different from avenida revolucion. so, has anyone actually taken their car at this dealership for service? i'd really like to know your experience because i'm leaning towards taking my car there for timing belt and 60k service.

      Found this post in the archives but I have the exact same question...need to get the timing belt done and thinking of rolling across to the Tijuana VW dealer.

      Anyone btdt?

      Cheers

      i would not trust anyone or anything in tijuana.
      All mk4s smell a bit like crayons/candles. All mk3s smell like hot plastic and crayons. All mk2s smell like water damage, and all mk1s smell like mold and electrical fires.
      It's a VW thing.

      I service my VW's at either tijuana or ensenada VW/Audi dealership. It makes alot more sense to bump an old thread than to start another one. The idea was for the OP and the others to comment. Thanks for the courtesy bumps.

      Although irrelevant to the MKIV forums, I wasn't the original poster.

      Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

      Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.

      I never thought of taking my VWs to Tijuas for service.

      I go there about once a month, I'll take care of my rear brakes pads and rotors and get all my fluids changed.

      the vw parts in mexico are made in mexico and are a good bargain, even at the dealership. make sure you tell the parts dude that you live in mexico now, and that you think mexico is the best thing since sliced bread, or else he'll bill you as a gringo.

      the parts dude knows that the parts south of the border are cheaper, and if your spanish slang isn't the best, he'll tax you for being a gringo by not giving you any type of a good guy discount.

      the parts dude knows that his employer is making a nice cut on the parts you are buying, and even tough he makes no commission on parts sold, he is making the dealership money, and looking good whilst doing it.

      Well I do speak Spanish just with a Pocho accent with Spanglish. I'll have my cousin (who lives in tijuas) call and set up an appointment and have him take it in. Then go to adelitas! CHOOOOOOW!!!! J/P

      Any good restaurants in the area? Espadana? How is it that place. But tacos el guero is close by on aguascaliente.

      if your cousin lives down here, roll in a car that has BC plates, less drama, good luck going to la coahuila, and try to pay for the parts in pesos. good luck.

      Anyone have a good experienc with a body shop in TJ?

      Have a older car that needs some body repair after it was hit when parked. The insurance company wants to total it because the repair bill here in
      San Diego is about $5K.

      I want the car fixed, because it is in great mechanical condition.

      Thanks,

      JJ

      I never took my GTI to the dealer in the States but here in Mexico they treat you like royalty...can't complain and with the current exchange rate the labor/parts prices aren't all that expensive.

      American dealers could learn a lot from their mexican counterparts.
