Default Trusted Sprinter Service Mechanics Shop List

We have a dealership list, but, not a list of independent shops that specialize (or are competent) with Sprinter vans. I see a lot of "looking for mechanics" threads, and with the rates dealers are charging, it would be great to find some alternatives.

I'll go through this thread and try to aggregate the independent mentions and organize them by state. Please post if you have a local guy you like and recommend. Non-dealers only please!

I thought that what was this whole Dealer Supply List/Regional Locations sub-forum was about - including the breakdown by state and province: https://sprinter-source.com/forum/fo...play.php?f=125

I saw that and have a few thoughts -

* the existing forum is primarily dealerships, which is exactly the point of this list is that it ISN'T dealerships
* I personally found that format confusing. If you are looking for people in New York, I think it is easier to see a list of places that is organized with phone numbers. If there *IS* a thread about it then I can link to it "See Reviews Here" type of thing.
* I think it is easier for owners to simply put a reply into this thread than start a whole new thread on their own. Small difference, but I think it matters.

Quality 1 Auto Service
27512 Enterprise Circle West
Temecula, CA 92590
(951) 972-8279

Found them after seeing maintenance videos they had on youtube, as well as customer reviews, yelp, etc. Their customers include companies with Sprinter fleets. After buying a 2006 Roadtrek RS on Sprinter chassis in Florida and driving it back here, took it in for a "pre-sale" inspection Jan. 2016, which was thorough and brought maintenance up to par. Good communication, no surprises in invoice, split cost of rental car with me. Recommended.

JC Car Care

Was referred by the former owner of the van and after making my first trip in, I can tell you that this place is the ticket. Chris is a sprinter whisperer who is quick to share his knowledge and genuinely wants to help you out. He knows all about your particular model and it’s quirks and will give you an honest assessment and price.

You know you found a good place when you leave feeling like you just got a free insurance policy!
