Auto Repair

Ethical, Skilled, Personable, and Caring

“Crystal and Jordan are honest, ethical people who are passionate about serving their community. I appreciate their expertise and integrity, as-well-as prompt friendly service. It’s refreshing to encounter trustworthy, sincere business owners.” – Nancy/Tom

“I happened to fall upon VanGo with my car that had a sick throttle. Just wanted to say thanks to both of you for your warm response, service and helpful advice. I ended up getting the vehicle fixed at the dealer via recall warranty, upon Jordan’s recommendation. I must say how blown away I was with both of you and your professional manner and personal concern. It is very heartwarming to know good people and businesses still exist in modern society. With that I am happy to share this story with my family, friends and colleagues, and will refer them to your awesome little shop on West 7th.” – Grady

“Thanks for the honest, reasonable, and reliable service. Everyone needs a great mechanic they can trust.” – Julie

“Jordan is a terrific mechanic and is someone you can trust. He always calls and tells you what he has found. He also goes over options to make sure that you are comfortable with a plan to get the problem fixed. He talks to you as a friend and does not try to up sell you to get more sales. If he says that you should do something, you can rely on it that it is true. He has been working on my cars for over 10 years and I am glad to see he is in a convenient location. Welcome to West 7th!” – Bob

“Thorough, reasonably priced, friendly, and skilled. I have a new mechanic and look forward to renting a van someday!” – Jason

“We had a number of issues with out car, so we brought it in to find the shop we knew had been bought out. I initially was a bit disappointed, as I really liked the guy that was there before. The long story short was we decided to see how this new guy does and were more than happy with the results. One of the major problems resulted in a loud, almost deafening, noise from the front driver side wheel when you hit highway speeds. He made this repair, along with a number of other unrelated repairs that were no surprise to us. Now its almost eerie how much quieter and smoother the car drives now. The car is running great and Jordan even went the extra mile to try to keep the costs down, where reasonably possible (prices were around where you would expect them to be). I would recommend this mechanic if you are looking for quality work and a friendly face.” – Matt

“Best place to bring your Eurovan or Vanagon!” – Mark

“Jordan is the most honest and genuine guy I know! Always takes great care of me and my family!” – Paul

VW Rental

Retro-Cool Adventure with Comfort and Convenience

“It was a great and unique adventure to rent from VanGo Auto! Jordan and Crystal have you covered. They thought of everything to make it as simple and easy for you to get the most out of your Westfalia camper experience. Besides driving a cool classic VW, the Vanagon was clean, in great shape and dependable. Be prepared to have perfect strangers ask you about the vehicle and tell their stories of when they owned a Westfalia. Camping, or glamping, has never been this fun and Jordan and Crystal genuinely care about your experience. Highly recommend VanGo Auto!” -Patrick

“Driving down 7th street, I caught a glimpse of one, then two, then three awesome VW Vanagon campers! A u-turn and an informative conversation with Jordan and I was hooked. We quickly booked our rental and planned our North Shore trip. All of our questions were answered, the booking process was easy, our well maintained, well equipped, beautiful “Bernie” van was ready to roll. Driving one is an absolute pleasure and set-up is about as easy as it gets and you never get tired of all the “thumbs-up” you get when tooling down the highway. It’s clear that Jordan and Crystal have a passion and it shows itself through the vehicles. I can’t say enough about how fun this past weekend was because of VanGo and “Bernie”!” – Rich

“Our family of 4 had a wonderful rental experience at Vango Auto. The service was top notch, from initial booking all the way to returning the van. We plan to book again next chance we get!” – Todd

“Rented one of VanGo’s fun vans for a long weekend of slow touring beautiful SE MN and SW WI. Everything worked perfectly and as explained by Crystal. camping on the fall nights was comfortable and cozy. And conveniently Jordan did a repair on my personal car while we were gone. VanGo rentals allow travelers to enjoy a retro experience with a big smile on their faces. Can’t wait to rent one again next summer” – Nell

“We had a great time renting from VanGo and enjoyed our experience! The communication throughout the process was wonderful.” – Katie

“In 1969, I drove a Westfalia from Anaheim, California to Markham, MN with my four kids, wife, poodle named Petunia. Today my kids are 63, 58, 56 and 54, with many grand kids, great grand kids and great greats too. My wife has passed away and I am 82 and healthy. All of my kids remember that trip very fondly to this day. Thank you for making the VW Vanagon live again and giving my family a chance to reminisce.” – Lou

“Planning a vacation? Go directly to VanGo. Car need some professional attention? Go directly to VanGo. They are the best new biz in Saint Paul. I can’t say enough good about them. Jordan and Crystal will never steer you wrong.” – Greg
