      I purchased my car from Jack Daniels VW in Northern NJ. Buying the car was the easy part. When it comes to getting service I have had nothing but problems (when my car was stock and now with a tune). The service manager is a real A$$****. Does anyone out there know of a dealer that is mod friendly (APR stage 1 and APR Carbonio intake). I would much rather give someone else my business. As far as Jack Daniels, I will never take another car there for service or purchase another VW through them again.

      I know this is a far drive but River Bank VW in Stamford,CT is a really friendly shop.

      Ask for John the service adviser.

      Did you end up going to the dealer to fix it? If so which one.

      I did end up going Crestmont VW. Its out on RT23 North in Pompton Plains. The guys over there are awesome. My car was in and out before i knew it. If you are in the North Jersey and need a good dealer, I highly recommend Crestmont.

      If I need a VW dealer to touch my car, then I go to Douglas VW in Summit.

      Plus, I buy parts through JC@DouglasVW

      Didn't purchase my car there (probably would've had I known beforehand) but the guys at Linden VW are good people. Met them the few times i checked out their G2Gs. Definitely seem like they're the kind of guys that are going to take care of you. Big VW guys themselves.
