Vanguard Motors, as an essential business, is open for service and repairs. Social distancing and enhanced cleaning procedures are in place.
The definite go to place if you have an older Porsche. Can’t say enough good things about the way they take care of my car.
I have been dealing with Gary before he was at Vanguard. Since he opened Vanguard, I have been very happy with he and Paula and I have recommended Vanguard to several others. Always good service. No games, and up front on needed and projected repairs. Will continue with Vanguard and continue to recommend to others. Thank you Gary and Paula, oh yes and Dan as well. Very satisfied.
Paula, Gary, and the Vanguard Motors Crew are awesome. I have a 2006 Mini Cooper S that runs great because of their knowledge of these cars.
Hi Chris - thank you for your kind words. We are always pleased to hear we have satisfied customers. Paula
I knew I'd found the right shop for my 911 when, on my first visit, Gary noticed my widow cranks were installed at the wrong angle. Gary and Paula know what they're doing. They do it at a fair price and in a timely manner. I've been a customer for about 10 years and would never take my Porsche anywhere else. Scott Kalkin. PCA-GGR driving instructor.
Gary and Paula run a top notch business. I've been using them for over 20 years (and 2 cars.) In fact I won't buy a new car because because I don't want BMW or anyone else to touch my car. The only people I trust is Vanguard. They're like doctors from the Mayo Clinic. They are honest, fair and by far the best garage I've ever used. The people who work for them are great, friendly and professional. I could not recommend anyone better than Vanguard. Vanguard is the best kept secret for BMW owners in San Francisco. They know their business and treat their customers like family. Thank you Vanguard for always being there for me.
Gary and Paula have been taking care of my 1979 Porsche 911 SC ever since I moved to SF 8 years ago. I don't know what I would do without them and hope that they never retire! They work on my car as if it were theirs; recommending the appropriate service and sourcing parts when needed, always being mindful of my budget and priority list. They have earned my complete trust and respect, and I unreservedly recommend them to anyone who wants to have the best service and repair for their car.
We have been using Vanguard Motors for more than 10 years. We were referred by Alan at The Stable where our Porsche was being serviced. Gary and Paula are involved, caring and honest owners who strive to provide excellent service. They are not cheap, rather they charge comparably to the Dealerships. The big difference is they are honest. They do not make repairs until they are necessary. On my first visit, the dealer who had been doing my service old t I needed six different repairs which would cost around $8,000 (or more). I went to Vanguard for a second opinion. One of the repairs was in fact necessary, and was completed for about $1,400. The other five items have still not been done ten years later. We now have both cars serviced at Vanguard, and always trust they will be done correctly and honestly. We recommend them without reservation.
I've been going to Vanguard motors for about 30 years now.... he and his team have serviced all of my cars through out the years 911s and BMW's. They have always been fair priced and knowledgeable.. I wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Thank you Vanguard, you are the best!
Gary and Paula are always top notch and go that extra mile! thanks guys! =)
I was referred to Gary & Paula by a good friend of mine who is also an E30 enthusiast. What stands out about this shop is that 1) they are genuine people, 2) they do great work, and 3) they care about their clients. They are experts on BMWs and car enthusiasts in their own right! I went through a few different shops/mechanics only to experience poor work and/or dishonesty. Even another supposedly reputable BMW shop in SF (who shall not be named) up charged me for unnecessary work. This was not the case here as Gary showed me the broken parts he replaced and how to look for signs of wear in those parts. Their professionalism is top notch. Needless to say, I will ONLY be coming here for my automotive needs. I even referred my parents to come here - I don't think I can give any higher praise than that.
