    Fantastic service. Faustino and his team were knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better (or more affordable) experience. I would recommend this automotive shop to anyone, especially those with Volkswagens.

    This is the 2nd time I have posted here. Last time was over a year ago
    and I have been there many times since. Every time has been the same:
    Fantastic honest work that is alway done on time and their prices are very reasonable. Go see Faustino and Aaron. You will not regret it.

    Thank goodness I found this place! I recently became a part of the VW family. Unfortunately my car had a brake failure. It was power booster that went out. Wow! suddenly out of nowhere I had no brakes. Called a friends mobile mechanic & he couldn't repair my car. Luckily I did the right google search & to my surprise they let me bring my car in on a Saturday morning. Awesome guys & awesome shop. Couldn't be happier to have my car worked on by qualified people. Now off to zoom around the streets. If you find yourself with a VW problem these are the guys to see. Thanks again Aaron

    Absolutely the best! They replaced a transmission for me in less than a week! Incredibly professional and most reasonably priced. I highly recommend them!

    This shop is awesome, Faustino is honest and direct and extremely competent in his field. He and his partner had me in and out with no drama and I won't ever be able to beat that price !

    Faustino and Aaron have gone out of their way to fix my car. When they couldn't get it to me on time, they rented a car for me. I needed a smog done on my car this year and they cleared and fixed all the necessary things for it to pass. Thennnnnnnnnn they took it next door to the smog shop and had it done for me. When I came to pick it up everything was done. One morning Faustino met me at my work, took my car and left his here so they could fix it and he delivered it back to me. What great service!
    I will never take my Volkswagen anywhere else! The customer service is EXCELLENT!

    BIg fan of Top Notch....put 87k miles on the PASAAT this YEAR....and it runs perfect...and always ON TIME and UNDER estimate....I am a ride share driver and MY car is my job and I trust it only to Top Notch...

    I'm so glad I found Faustino and his team on Yelp. They were incredible. The 5 Star reviews were spot on today as we experienced professionalism, a friendly, no hassle environment, as well as wonderful work on the car. I'd trust these guys with any vehicle I need to bring in. No need to look elsewhere because Top Notch is the best.

    From the first call to finished repair it was customer service at its best! Faustino was able to get me next day for urgent repair and he took the time to explain the steps they would go through to diagnose and eventually fix the problem. The work was done quickly and at an extremely competitive price and I left knowing (with details) that Faustino and Aaron stand by their work. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to have their Audi treated like you would treat it yourself...if you could do the work!

    Aaron, Faustino, and Norman are great mechanics, and even though they specialize in VW and Audi, they were able to diagnose and solve several problems with my Ford Mustang. They are funny, great guys, and they are quite possibly my new permanent mechanics. They deserve all the praise in the world, and if possible, all the business in the world for the great job.

    Excellent Service for sure. Top Notch is what Aaron is. I Run a Specialized shopand l and have had several encounters with Top Notch Auto repair. Aaron is Factory trained VW, AUDI Porsche and has the sense to perform quality repairs with the best parts in the industry. He takes the time to listen to his customers and their concerns. He has the knowledge to efficiently diagnose and repair computerized electronic European and most import vehicles.
    Don't get STUNG by the local Mechanics claiming to know what their doing. Aaron will show you whats wrong and repair whats needed and not throw parts at it.
    Car repair and maintenance are expensive
    So know what your paying for and Look at the Value Aaron offers before getting Stung..
    Quality Person, Quality Parts = Satisfied Customer...

    Took my 2010 CC into Top Notch because we noticed it was leaking fluid, Aaron found it within seconds!! He explained to me that since he had to remove the manifold to replace the water pump he would let me know if it needed a carbon cleaning, which eventually it would because it has 93000 miles on it. WOW!! Unbelievable how smooth it drives!! The only reason I used to go to the dealer was because of Faustino and Aaron, I'm so happy for these two hardworking honest guys!! Congratulations Faustino and Aaron!!

    I'm really glad I found this place. I took my 2008 Audi RS4 in for a full carbon clean (a fairly elaborate procedure that involves the removal of the manifold, manual cleaning of the intake valves, installing new injectors, etc.), as well as the diagnosis of a strange clunking noise beneath the suspension (which, by the way, the dealership was unable to find) and the repair of an exhaust issue. I'm happy to say the guys at Top Notch diagnosed and fixed everything immediately and without fault (and about 30% cheaper than what the dealership quoted me). On top of that, both Faustino and Aaron are extremely nice guys, not to mention professional and punctual. Aaron even took the time to take before/after pictures of the work on the intake, as well as show and explain to me each part he had exchanged or fixed - without me asking - thus providing further evidence that these guys are an honest pair, eager to demonstrate the high quality of their work. Now my car runs perfectly and feels brand new again. Aaron and Faustino are definite keepers, I'll bring my car there from now on and know it'll be in good hands.

    If you own a German car, or any other type of car, you need to be having your car serviced at Top Notch. Reasonable prices, honest work, great staff. You will get everything you want in car service with out the over charges, or work you really don't need. Straight talk from two stand up guys! I will most certainly be back with my other car, and will tell everyone I know to go there. Thanks Faustino and Aaron!

  • *****

    WOW..what a FIND,,,,two FACTORY trained VW guys branching OUT on there own...my car was in need of a tune up...VW dealer $900.00 plus this and that...Top Notch did it for less than $350 and the car has NEVER run better...and it was all DONE on time...

  • *****

    Bar none, the best experience I have ever had getting my jetta repaired! Faustino was friendly and helpful, and Aaron, the master tech diagnosed and repaired my car quickly and with the confidence that I haven't felt from any other shop. I will definitely return!

  • *****

    The absolute best! I've followed Faustino for years from dealership to dealership because he is just fantastic; with great customer service & knowledge. I'm so happy that Faustino and Aaron have opened up their own shop together because they were easily the best part about VW of Palm Springs. I've moved out town recently, but every time I come to the desert to visit friends and family I still schedule my services and maintenance on my 2009 VW JETTA with Faustino & Aaron while I am in town. That's how much I trust and respect their work, no one from here to Orange County is better!

  • *****

    Best shop in the Coachella Valley! If you own a Volkswagen or an Audi this is where you need to take it for service. Aaron is a VW and Audi Master Technician(actually the only one in the Valley) so there is nothing that he cannot solve. I have had dozens and dozens of things fixed by him and every single time it has been an accurate diagnosis of the problem. Their prices are way better than the dealer and both Aaron and Faustino are great guys. Give them a call for all your VW and Audi needs!

  • *****

    I knew these guys from there days at VW Palm Springs, and always had a really good experience. Aaron and Faustino bring a lot of knowledge and experience with them, and I feel confident in their work and recommendations. I have a new 2016 Golf R and prefer to bring my R to them for service over the dealership. These guys really are top notch! Highly recommended.

  • *****

    Fabolous service. Highly recommend. I too followed Faustino from the dealerships as he is a caring helpful guy. Great work, on time with warranty.

  • *****

    Faustino is best Service Manager, I have taken my cars to him for the past 20 years. Now that he has partnered up with Aaron, a top automitive mechanic, the desert has an automotive repair shop that you can trust. I ask you, when was the last time you got to talk to the mechanic that actually did the repairs on your car? Go see them! I promise you will walk away with a smile!
