I wanted to add a quick comment about my experience with German Motors. I brought my Eurovan to them and requested that they diagnose the drivability problem it had (stumbles badly at road speed). After they performed some of the requested diagnostics Mike explained that the vehicle may have some fairly serious issues. Knowing that I was expecting a relatively inexpensive solution to this problem, he suggested that I consider my options before having them do any more work. He was also very fair about the labor amount that he charge me.

My twin brother and I have owned nothing but Volkswagons since our first 1969 bug that we purchased in 1973. German Motors of Salem was recommended to us by a friend and multiple VW's later we have never gone anywhere else all these years. We dealt with Mike Leisten's father Rudy and his partner Fritz for many years until Mike purchased the business several years ago. German Motors has always done one fine job of "making our problems theirs" in regard to taking care of all of our needs, bumper to bumper! Mike has always been straight forward with diagnosing our problems even when we didn't like what we heard in regard to having to have more expensive repairs performed. In the 38 years that we have done business with them, German motors has always stood behind their work! We have had them rebuild several engines from Bug to Vanagon's, all done extremely well and with no problems. One time Mike didn't like the sound of some piston slap in a factory rebuilt Vanagan engine right out of the crate and he rebuilt that cylinder himself at no additional cost! That's going above and beyond, but he and his employees always exceed our expectations. We continue to drive and enjoy our Volkswagon fleet because we have German Motors to thank for helping us to maintain them! Thanks Geman Motors! Keith and Kevin

I took my first car, a 66 VW, to German Motors shortly after I got it for a fuel issue. The fuel issue cost about $50, so I decided to have a tune up done. During the tune-up Aaron or Mike found out that a gear oil leak had dripped on and ruined the brakes. After I got that fixed they called again to tell me the tune-up hadn't gone as nicely as they would have liked and that I needed a new carb. They wanted to charge me $260 for the carb alone not including $90/hr in labor. I went and picked up my car, along with it's over $800 total bill. If you liked to be pay for up-priced parts and over-priced labor then by all means German Motors is for you!

Business Response:

Iβ??m terribly sorry you feel this way and that youβ??re 66 Baja Bug required some service and repairs just after you had purchased it. You were very adamant about making this car safe for your daughter. We as well, find it important to let customers know about other repairs that are needed to make their car perform better and safer on the road. We recommended that the carburetor be replaced and provided and estimate which did include labor. Upon pick up of your vehicle we provided all the old parts which you requested, and showed you all the repairs which were performed. Reviewing your repair order the total amount came in under the amount of which you are claiming we charged. I would have liked to have an opportunity to speak to you regarding your disappointment. Rather than submitting this review. Once again we are sorry you feel this way.

If you are the victim of mechanical failure of your German automobile, prepare to pay for owning the ultimate driving machine or one of its cousins. However, Mike at German Motors can ease the pain a little with his integrity and his experience. Next to the dealer (and in some cases, better than) German Motors is the best solution to German engineering failure.

German Motors of Salem is an absolutely wonderful company. They provide wonderful service as a fair price (for imported cars). When I brought my car into them, they explained exactly what was wrong - in plain English! - and gave suggestions for fixing it to fit a variety of budgets! I will definitely take my car to them again!
