I have an old 2005 audi that I was about to give up on. This team breathed new life into it and now I can pass it along to another generation. They got me right in, worked quickly and did a good job of keeping me updated.
Came in from out of town for a friends wedding and a bunch of warning lights came on in my car while taking her to her appointments. On the way to one, I spotted this location and swung through to see if they could help. They did in a flash and with great kindness. It made everything much easier and less worriesome so I could focus on the important things 🙂 Thank you guys!! Top notch.
Honest and professional.
I had to get my brake pads replaced on my BMW. These guys did a professional job starting from the honest diagnosis, to dropping me off home to having the car ready out front when I showed up. Highly recommend them from my experience.
I just moved to Santa Cruz and was worried about finding a mechanic as good as the one I had in Oregon. I was sent here by an smog test shop because the check engine light was on and the car wouldn't pass with it on. Brought it over and they checked it for free and cleared the minor error that was making the light turn on for. Been going here ever since!
Absolutely the best mechanic EVER. Brian is the man. Honest, forthright, bright, knows BMW's in and out and a true gentleman. He is my mechanic for life. Thoughtful, thorough, precise, accurate, fair, trust worthy, generous. All that praise, is it possible? Yes. Try it. Brian will never disappoint. I took my BMW 330ci to him after the car was meticulously maintained by the dealer for more than 10 years but I let it go for almost 22k miles and just when it was dying I took it to Brian. After the service and a thorough look Brian brought it back to almost new and it works like a charm as I commute the hill and back daily. Brian, thanks for fixing my seat motor for free. thanks for renewing my oil for free. thanks for all your advice and your friendship. Honesty pays and he knows it.
I initially relied on the strong Yelp reviews in calling Hayes European to get a pre-purchase inspection on a 1973 Porsche 914. This was no easy task as I...
Taking Care Of Your Commuter
Volkswagens have become one of the country’s most popular choices for daily commuter cars and for great reason. Their highly dependable and affordable cars retain all of the best aspects of a European-made luxury car without the hefty price tags they often come with. Models like the Jetta, Passat and Beetle give drivers all of the comforts and performance benefits they could want without breaking the bank or requiring a rigorous maintenance plan. However just because they may not have the same maintenance needs of other luxury cars doesn’t mean you can opt for cheaper or more limited service appointments. The expert mechanics at Hayes European help Santa Cruz drivers get the Volkswagen services they need without raising the costs or cutting corners.
