What Are People Saying About Us?

Tristan says:

"Words can’t express how satisfied I am with the service provided. Customer service is top notch. Direct, accurate and most importantly honest. I also have to mention that their waiting area is well organized and clean. Excelerate performance was recommended by a good friend and I myself would also recommend this place. The almost two hours drive it took me to get there is well worth it. If you need a trustworthy place. Look no further."

Andre says:

Excelerate is awesome for all kinds of work on German cars. I had work done on my Audi and will definitely be back for more. Their mechanics go the extra mile and seem more qualified than most dealership services. I highly recommend them!

What Are People Saying About Us?

Austin says:

Spoke to the service manager about a problem I’m having with my 2010 Volkswagen Passat. The gentleman I spoke to was extremely knowledgable and helpful with my problem. I’ve spoken to many repair shops about it and nobody describe it as well as these guys. I know have a better idea of where to go from here just from speaking with him for about 5 minutes. Great customer service. Sad I’m across the country or I would 100% bring my vw here!
