Do we perform VW waterboxer (aka wasserboxer) engine repairs? YES!

Yes, the well-trained and highly adaptable mechanics Griffin’s can even repair your VW waterboxer (including the VW 2.1 waterboxer). The VW waterboxer (or as refer to as a wasserboxer engine) is a unique air-cooled engine that eliminates the need for a standard cooling system with a radiator and water pump that use water and coolant to cool the engine. The VW waterboxer and the space surrounding it are designed for maximum air exposure thus efficient engine cooling. At Griffin’s our mechanics can repair and keep your air-cooled engine maintained so that lasts as long as possible and passes today’s smog emission’s testing standards.

We’ll perform VW camper equipment repair

Westies and Vanagons are ideal multi-purpose vehicles suitable for RVing, camping or everyday cruising. Whether you’d like to keep your existing vehicle camping equipment well maintained or need to fix your camper pop-top tent, Griffin’s can help. We repair:

  • Dual battery systems
  • Sink pumps & faucets
  • Electrical & lighting systems
  • Refrigerator replacement
  • Heaters
  • And other weird stuff that only happens to VWs 🙂

Think of Griffin’s as your complete mechanic service center for Volkswagens, including older and less common models such as Vanagons, Westfalia, Eurovans and more. More than fixing and maintaining your vehicles, we offer a dealership-worthy guarantee on our workmanship so you can feel confident giving our local San Diego auto repair shop a try.
