About German Car Depot

German Car Depot is an independent automotive repair shop offering service and repairs exclusively for Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Mini Cooper, and Porsche vehicles. Our technicians use the same diagnostic equipment and specialty tools as the new car dealer service department and have access to the latest Technical Service Bulletins issued by the manufacturers.

We are more of a family run business, taking the time to get to know each customer and their driving habits. Our parts department is well stocked with an inventory of commonly needed parts to ensure the quickest possible turn-around time on your vehicle’s repair.
