Classic and Vintage VW Repair in San Diego

vw vintage car


Volkswagens are some of the oldest and longest-lasting vehicles on the road. Known for their longevity and reliability, VWs can run for hundreds of thousands of miles provided they are well maintained. Yet taking care of older-model vehicles including VWs can be tough on your wallet because they need regular-as-clockwork maintenance. Drivers of these vehicles may feel pressure to take them to expensive specialty shops for classic or vintage VW repair and maintenance.

Fortunately, Griffin’s local auto repair shop offers quality, vintage and classic VW repair and maintenance services that you can afford. From standard and Super Beetle repair to hard-to-find Karmann Ghia repair, Griffin’s can help.

Though we don’t perform vehicle restorations, we perform all other standard VW beetle repairs, classic and otherwise, including standard repairs for brakes and bearings, engine (repair and rebuilds), transmission systems (including clutch), alternators, and suspension and steering systems.

What is a VW air cooled engine?

We also do repairs for all air cooled VW vehicles. Unlike most vehicles on the road today that rely on a separate cooling system, VW air cooled engines use the force of the air itself and a unique design to keep the engine temperature low. So yes, this means air cooled Volkswagens do not have a separate cooling system, which is comprised of a radiator, water pump, and connectors that work together to cool the engine using a mixture of water and fluid.
