Shuttle service can also be used to pick you up or drop you off to a nearby work, home, or school. You can reserve this service Monday-Friday 9am – 4pm.
  • Sometimes customers want to drop off or pick up their car when we are closed. There’s a locked key drop box at the front door for drop-offs. You can arrange to pay your bill online and pick up your keys in a locked pick-up box at the front door.

Community Minded

Caring for Community

Crystal, the co-owner of VanGo has deep roots in social services. Her entire career prior to joining forces with her partner Jordan, has been serving the community and those in need through nonprofit organizations. Giving back is near and dear to the couple’s heart. VanGo serves the community through keeping people safe on the roads; however, it’s important to extend generosity even further. A few ways VanGo donates to the community is through –

  • Organizing winter needs drives for a homeless shelter and sponsoring meals. Our Saviour’s Housing is a terrific housing organization we are grateful to assist.
  • VanGo highly values investments in our local children and schools. Throughout the year, VanGo donates gift cards for car repair and sponsors school initiatives to assist schools with their goals.

Testimonial Reviews

I brought my BMW 5 series there two weeks ago and now it hasn’t run this good since I bought it three years ago. I had been to a dealership and they never identified the things that Jordan found and fixed. I would give more that 5 stars if I could, and I will recommend him to all my friends and colleagues. – Bill

Jordan has been servicing my cars for years and I can say that he knows cars and how they work and how to repair them. He’s like a car whisperer; he listens to cars and they listen to him as well. His ability to diagnose what is wrong and to solve even the most challenging problems is extraordinary. The other thing I love about taking my cars to VanGo is that Crystal and Jordan truly live out their desire to provide warm, friendly and caring service that is rooted in authentic and trusting relationships. Every time they call or I am there to drop off, even sometimes when the repairs required might be bad news, my day is a little better and my smile a little wider. – AJ

The VanGo staff are some of the best people I’ve worked with! They take their time to get to know you, and I can always count on their advice. If you tell them what your car goals are, they will accommodate and recommend only what you need. But most importantly, it’s their integrity and honesty that makes me come back again and again. I hope I never have to move away from the Twin Cities, because they might just be my mechanic for life! – JLor

I was slow to bring my badly running van anywhere, a little pessimistic that anyone really understood the uncommon 1.9L motor. VanGo replaced messed up vacuum lines, and knew about oxygen sensor wire issues. Now after 500 miles it’s still running great and I’m confident to head south again this winter. And they had been helpful with recommendations on a couple items even before I ever brought it in. Thumbs up. – Bruce

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 for your warm response, service and helpful advice. I ended up getting the vehicle fixed at the dealer via recall warranty, upon VanGo’s recommendation. I must say how blown away with the 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

VanGo is the only mechanic I use. They are super honest and super nice people. They always tell me what’s wrong with my vehicles and whether the repair is something urgent or something I can put off until I have enough money for the repair. I LOVE this! Other places pressure me to get every repair done immediately and tell me it’s a “safety issue,” even when it’s not. VanGo doesn’t do that. And the repairs are quick! The best mechanic I’ve worked with. – Jared

We had a number of issues with our car, so we brought it into VanGo. 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 it’s almost eerie how much quieter and smoother the car drives now. The car is running great and VanGo 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

I am not the most knowledgeable guy when it comes to vehicles so it can intimidating going to an auto shop… and it is safe to say I found my new auto repair home! I was greeted by Crystal and Kristyn and they were extremely friendly, polite, patient and professional during my visit. The mechanic was extremely knowledgeable and really listened to my concerns and took the time to understand the absolute best fit for me… not just what was the quickest and easiest for them. I would recommend anyone to VanGo. – Rory
