These guys are great!
These guys go out of there way to help you. Best price s in town
Incredible customer service. Took the time to give my car a full inspection. The job was done very fast and for a great price. Only spot I will take my Porsche!
I had my car towed to A & P Specialties because the engine light began flashing while on the freeway. Paul was my point of contact. He was helpful and professional. Alan was kind. He dropped me home so that I didn't have to walk it. Ron did an incredible job fixing my car. Outside of oil changes, it hadn't been serviced for a couple years. The final bill was affordable and my car runs like new! This is a quality business with caring and detailed staff. Thank you gentlemen for making that day easier. I will definitely be back. More...
I needed an alignment on my Passat. I do all my own work, so it was hard to let someone else do it. I did my research and A&P had the best reviews. I gave them a shot and will always use them from now on. They asked the right questions and had the right answers. They definitely know what they’re doing. Car drives amazing and they even washed it! Thanks guys! More...
Best mechanic in Portland by far! Paul and Alan go out of their way to help me with my car and I have never been let down. They treat me like a friend and will always find time in their schedule to help me troubleshoot any car problems I am having. Thanks A & P for being so rad! More...
A & P is an amazing local shop to service your Porsche. They are extremely competitive on price, highly knowledgeable about Porsche and the customer service cannot be beat. Upfront and honest throughout the entire process. If you're considering going somewhere else besides a dealer, quit looking, just take your car here. More...
Good work. Great customer service
Could get me in immediately when my Jetta broke down. Paul and Allen immediately made me feel comfortable with procedures and pricing. Austin jumped right in, diagnosed and repaired my car in record time. As a single woman, it's important to have a mechanic you can trust, both with the quality of service and pricing. EXCELLENT TEAM! More...
Paul and the entire team were very professional and explained everything in detail when I took in an Audi A3 for a pre purchase inspection. Did a very thorough job. Would definitely use them again and recommend all my friends and family as well More...
Trying to find someone to work on my V10 Audi is a chore... but these guys are amazing. They’re upfront and honest. Treat customers and their cars like their own. I’m never taking my Audi anywhere else. More...
Allan & Paul take great care of my aging Eurovan. 212,000 miles and about to headset for another 3000+ mile adventure with full confidence that everything is in good order.
Such nice guys, with great communication about what your needs and what it doesn't need! Definitely try them out!
Always a wonderful experience with A&P. Outstanding service all around!
These guys are new to us and after going through a few mechanics, there is no else I will take my 914 to. The are knowledgeable, honest and great mechanics! With their help this little 914 will be perfect! More...
Great shop, very knowledgeable, high quality work. Reasonable rates and excellent turn around times on repairs. This is the place for German car repair.
I have been taking my audi to the guys at A&P Specialist for a couple of years now - and my car has never run better! Most of my visits are just for regular maintenance and that is part of the reason I keep coming back - they don't find "a new big expensive problem" everytime I see them like many other garages. I get excellent! professional! and friendly service! every time and I have grown to really trust them. As a woman it can be very intimidating in this mechanical world, but I have always been treated respectfully and honestly by Paul and Alan and the other men ( I can't remember everyone names right now). This visit I did need a big repair of a fuel pump, and the original quote they had given me changed..and in all honesty I was upset & called Paul backed & he managed me very graciously and generously to appease me. We talked more about it when I picked up the car, and he remained very very generous- but I hope in the end we did come to an agreement that was fair for them also.I have nothing but excellent things to say about everyone at A&P Specialists, especially Paul. And my car is still running great!! More...
Thought this was another average vanagon repair shop. Wrong. They did everything they said they would do, plus got a courtesy inspection. It revealed a lot I didn't know I needed. I am a backyard mechanic, familir with repair.They came in under estimate by a lot. Their guarantee is the best in Portland,Thanks, Guys. More...
Paul and crew are fantastic people. You always wanna know.. Can I trust this mechanic? Well Paul is awesome to work with.. straight shooter and a trusted mechanic for our VW for years. We are selling our VW and honestly will miss our interactions with A&P. Bottom line if you have a european car.. use A&P! More...
Nothing but amazing help, and customer service. I felt like family even by just having a conversation on the phone. Paul saved me so much time and money. I recommend this place 100%
The best place for your repairs top notch friendly. And professional the best place in town
These guys are awesome! If you own a German car, you won't find a more knowledgeable or competent shop anywhere, and they stand behind their work. I trust them and that's saying a lot in today's world. More...
Best locally owner Audi shop in Portland. Hands down.
My entire family enjoyed our experience. We picked out a car and color we could all agree on and negotiated a very fair deal. The work done on our Subaru , the NO PRESSURE SALES and Gilberto made it worth our while. I recommend you seriously consider looking here first. More...
If you have car issues go see Austin! Super nice guy and gets everything fixed quickly. My regular car repair place wanted to charge me double of what these guys did the work for. I’m glad I looked around! Everyone here is incredibly helpful and friendly! Austin even put a new battery in my keyless remote that hasn’t worked for quite awhile...just because he noticed... at no charge! Forget other car repair places, take your car here, you will be so glad you did! More...
I recently moved to the area and was looking for a place I felt like had integrity. This is it!
A&P Specialties took GREAT care of me, and the work that was done was spectacular! I wasn't sure what was wrong with my car, but they did the most thorough and detailed courtesy inspection of it and let me know exactly what was wrong. They also let me know about other items I was unaware of that needed attention, but let me choose exactly what I was ready to do. Austin Jordan did the work on my car and did an excellent job! His work not only fixed my starting issues, but made the car run better than it did before! Will definitely continue to take my cars here in the future! More...
These guys are top notch. You'd have a rough time finding someone better to work on your German Car in Portland for a more affordable price.
Austin worked on my Cayenne Turbo to identify and fix a very complicated computer sensor issue. I have to say the car has never run better and I really appreciate all the time and effort he put into making sure my car run likes a dream. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone who owns a Porsche ! More...
Top Notch service!!! Would highly recommend! Had to have brakes replaced, work done by Austin who was great to deal with , had car back same day! Will definitely be coming back for any other needs I may have in the future!! More...
Calm, clear and considerate. I think I will be bringing my car to A&P for a long time to come.
I just called this morning at got a warm welcome and careful notes. He's so kind and take my schedule for tthis Friday. I can't wait until the end of service to write this. I'd update this story when my car be ready on the road. More...
2008 Audi TT, First time customer, but can't be more pleased with them. Customer service outstanding, treated me like we had been friends for years, did the work asked for at the prices quoted. Paul and Alan also answered all my questions concerning a couple of jobs I want to do in my garage. Thank you to Jose, the tech, who seemed to take care of my car like it was his own.Thank you More...
I have known Alan for 30 years. I first met him back in 1987 when I owned my first VW Jetta. Whenever it was time for my car to be tuned up or to have maintenance done I took it in. My car "lived" for over 15 years until the transmission dropped out of it. I now own my 2nd VW Jetta GLS and have had it serviced at Alan's shop. The quality of work and the kindness extended from Alan, his wife and mechanics is stellar. I know that my car is in the BEST hands possible and am being treated fairly and honestly. I would NEVER let anyone else work on my VW. Guaranteed work. More...
Very friendly, and reasonable price.
Absolutely great service, they fixed my beloved Porsche and got it to run like a top. Thank you very much!
Really helpful and knowledgeable. I will be back!
These guys were great. They got me in on a short notice for a vehicle inspection for my Porsche Panamera. They dignosed the issue and their service was excellent. I will definitely be using these guys in the future for all my service needs. Thank you Allen. More...
I had them do a Pre Purchase inspection on a 2013 Porsche Panamera.Let me tell you, if you think there is a good reason to take your car to a Porsche dealer i would like to hear it. A & P is professional and more competent than ANY Porsche dealer I've used, including Sunset Porsche. They aren't afraid to tell you the good and the bad of any car. They are honest, trustworthy and they won't try to "sell" you on a service you don't need. I've been in the automotive business over 30 years and this is as good as it gets. More...
We wouldn't trust our 928 with anyone else! Excellent work, honest and super nice!
Alan and Paul got me in fast and found out the problem my Audi was having. They coordinated with the warranty company and has my car ready at the end of the day. They are so helpful!
A&P Specialities always does such great work on my 85 Westfalia Vanagon! They made the extra effort to find the missing parts from the exhaust system kit I needed installed and got everything done quickly and professionally. My van is running better than ever and I couldn't be happier :) More...
Brought in an Audi for a post-purchase inspection and minor repairs. They asked for my authorization to spend over 2.5 hours tracking down a electrical problem. Turned out to be a minor repair that was easily fixed. They felt they should have found the problem sooner, so they charged me for just 0.5 hours, even though they spent much more time on it and I authorized payment for much more. I've also had a lot of work done on my Westfalia. Great shop. I'll keep coming back. More...
A&P is the best mechanic service I've ever had. When I bought my 93 Eurovan, it needed a lot of work. They helped me come up with a plan that fixed the immediate needs first, which helped me financially invest in my van instead of breaking the bank. Alan and Paul are SO polite. As a female, I definitely feel that I've been taken advantage of with other mechanics. Not here! They've always done my repairs promptly, and educated me about the issue. I might always buy foreign cars just so I can have A&P as my shop! More...
First time customer and was impressed with my original call to see that this shop knew how to service a 928. Was greeted and traded contact information etc on the first visit and was told an anticipated schedule for the repair.My car was fixed in schedule, communications were great all along the way and the shop fixed the issues without adding on "stuff" to increase the cost. As a matter of fact, they surpassed my expectations for the repair and when I inspected their work, the technician took the time to clean the area that was serviced so the motor was back to being clean and grunge free. I have found a new home for my babyKen More...
2003 Boxster - Paul was great in setting up my appointment and very knowledgeable with the questions he asked to determine the correct service needs for my vehicle.Phil fixed an electrical problem that has perplexed me for a year. He is an excellent tech.A&P has been servicing my friends VW's and Audi's over the years and I have never heard a negative comment about their service and prices. I now contribute my own confirmation....these guys are great! More...
Very impressed with the fast service and integrity.
A&P does a great work, is on-time and highly recommend. I have been taking my Eurovan there for about 4 years and have only had excellent experiences with work quality and their consultative approach.
I take both my VWs here. Great service and I never get sold something I don't need. Highly recommended!
A&P Specialties is the best. They are thorough, fair and completely trustworthy. I never feel like I'm being taken advantage of. Excellent customer service, workmanship and follow through. It is clear that they take pride in every aspect of their business. I wouldn't trust my 2007 Audi A3 to anyone else - so happy I found these guys!! More...
Excellent! Allan Paul and the rest of the crew at A&P have earned our respect and customer allegiance for over 15 years.
I brought in my 2007 Porsche Cayman for its 80k mile service and these guys took great care of it. They are knowledgable, friendly, and upfront about all the costs (which are very reasonable). Highly recommend, will be back for my 90k service! More...
I took my 1999 911 Carrera there for service to had them repair 2 oil leaks for me back in 2007. I continue to go there for any service need. Always friendly and knowledgeable folks. Never a problem. More...
Honest, reliable, great work on my Audi. My old '91 200 needed some TLC and it certainly got it here. I don't plan on taking it anywhere else. Thanks guys!
Always professional and reliable consultation and service. The technicians that Alan and Paul have are very good. They have repaired and improved the performance on my Porsche for many years and I will not go anywhere else. It's an honest shop.
Brought my car here after another shop had it for over a month without even looking at it. Car was done in 3 days and work is guaranteed for 3 years. Nice to have my wheels back and now I have a go to shop. Life is good. More...
My dad & I have been taking out VW Jetta TDI there for close to a decade now - there's a reason why we still go! They're thorough, quick, incredibly understanding (when I got my car, I was pretty broke and had to ask "what's the most dire fix?") and are always helpful beyond what they need to be. Also, SO NICE, which is a super plus - I have so many friends that have mechanics that are total jerks, and they're always jealous :)Thanks A&P! More...
Excellent service from not only Paul but also from the techs that worked on my car! Paul was able to handle my service contract and work directly with them instead of me being the middle man. They were very knowledgable, friendly and most importantly trustworthy. They didn't push any more services on me that were unnecessary. The techs were super fast and had my car ready by the end of the day! Will definitely be going back in the future! More...
Robin Kwon, DDS
Picked this shop because of convenience and reviews. And reviews are right on. They do a great job in servicing German vehicles. Took my 4 years old BMW in for new brakes. Got me in quickly and finish the work within a day. Very pleasant and easy to deal with. And the work is just about 20% less than the dealerships. Win, win! More...
A & P Specialties has been my go-to garage since I bought my '87 VW Westfalia over 6 years ago. I've had excellent personal service from Alan, Paul (service manager) and their staff in keeping my Westy in prime mechanical condition. They also provide the same level of service for my out-of-warranty GTI. There's no need to go anywhere else - A & P is the best!! More...
Paul was straight forward and honest, was happy to go into detail about the error codes and possible solutions. No extra work was needed or recommended, no waste of time whatsoever but instead saved me time and money giving my car a clean bill of health.Above and beyond my expectations, I will certainly be bringing my 1999 VW Golf GTI back again at the next sign of trouble. More...
These guys keep my old Allroad running like new. Fair, very knowledgeable and their communication is great.
Honest and straightforward! I've been looking for a reliable shop to bring my '08 Jetta, and these guys made an awesome first impression. Aside from the repairs they did, Paul suggested a plan of action of things that should be addressed next - rather than try and push the customer to pay for unnecessary work now. My car has been running great since, and I plan on bringing it back. I appreciate the upfront business that many shops lack.Thanks A & P! More...
Great fast and friendly. Will be bringing my BMW back for future repairs
I was incredibly impressed by their work and hospitality. They did a very thorough job and were very patient when I stayed to ask follow up questions. They worked with my schedule and were very accommodating. More...
Took my 1975 Porsche 911 to them for the first time, and found the only repair shop she will be seeing. Awesome work, fast, but it was the updates from Paul that really made me feel she was being taken care of the right way. If you want your car to be fixed right I would highly suggest A & P Specialties! More...
Excellent service and they always stand behind their work. Honest and helpful with service information when we've called in with questions. Highly recommend -
Hands down great service.Dropped off my 09 Audi A4 Avant after taking it 2 other places because it was idling rough and no one else could figure out the problem.These guys are champs, they diagnosed and fixed the problem. Turns out it was a rear main seal that was broken. More...
This is one of the only places in town willing and able to service Porsche 928s, and I like to work on my 928 but need expert help on occasion. The main mechanic there has a lot of experience working on 928s and other Porsches, and he does a quality job. Bottom line: if you don't want to get hosed on repairs, you have to know a little bit about cars, and don't buy a Porsche or other fine foreign car if you don't know squat about cars. More...
Fixed my AC at a very competitive price. Alan came out and greeted me personally. They had my car in and out in a couple hours. No doubt I'll be coming back here for more. More...
I've taken several of my cars to Alan over the years, and have been continually impressed by the quality of the service and the pricing. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and a pleasure to do business with. Highly recommend this shop. More...
Have used A & P multiple times, Alan and Paul have always treated me well. Fair pricing and good service keep me coming back. Thanks.
I found them after my previous mechanic closed up shop, and I'm glad I did. I Absolutely love these guys. Alan and the crew are knowledgeable, honest and very friendly.
I Had my flywheel resurfaced very fast(15-20 mins) for a good price. I definitely recommend A & P Specialties.
We had a minor problem with our VW and found this place through google. We called and were promised they could see us as soon as we arrived. True to their word, they took our sick car right in and had it evaluated (and fixed, too!) within the time promised (30 minutes). Great customer service, honest staff. They only service VW, Audi, and Porsche so you'll need to look elsewhere if you don't have one of those three. There didn't seem to be a waiting area, but a few streets over there are lots of shops where you can grab a cool drink while you wait. They'll ring your cell if they need you. Highly recommended.
