Wes’s Wagons offers superior service for your import vehicle. We have over 15 years of experience and are factory trained in VW, Audi, and Subaru repair and maintenance. And best of all, we are independently owned and operated – meaning you receive dealership quality service at affordable prices.

Because we specialize in imports, Wes’s Wagons offers the best of both worlds. We are here for our customers and want you to think of us first should your import need routine maintenance or need expert repair.

Volkswagen Repair & Maintenance Services

Wes’ Wagons is Missoula’s Premier Volkswagen Repair Shop covering your vehicle “Bumper to Bumper and Everything in Between.” We have over 15 years’ experience and are factory trained in Volkswagen repair and maintenance.

Volkswagen automobiles are known for their longevity. This means that the longer your vehicle is on the road, the more new vehicles the manufacturer releases. Many repair shops have a hard time keeping up with this demand and that means that the older models start having fewer options when it comes to places to take for repair.

This is not the case at Wes’s Wagons. We understand that owning a car is a necessary evil when it comes to cost. We do not want to see yet another quality vehicle being traded in for a newer model because it’s convenient. We make it our mission to ensure every one of our customers enjoys every mile their car has to offer.

What kind of Volkswagen do you drive? Some common VW models we work on are the VW Golf, the VW Jetta, the VW Passat, the VW GTI, the VW Touareg, the iconic VW Beetle, and more. If your Volkswagen is experiencing any loss of performance, consider bringing it to a certified Volkswagen Specialist.

Each one of these models is know for its individual quirks. For example, the check engine light is a fairly recent problem that happens at low mileage for Jetta models, although it has been known to affect all vehicles across VW’s line. In early 2000 model Passats, and affecting other models, engine failure has been caused by oil sludge build up. Wiring harness shorts, electrical failure, coil failure and the pesky “check engine” light always seeming to light up your dashboard, are all well-known issues that VW owners face.

These offenders are often as simple and innocuous as sensor or software issues, but always could reflect more serious underlying problems. It is always important to bring any of these potentially harmful issues to a VW expert. And, quite often, by following a regularly scheduled maintenance routine, the properly equipped repair shop will catch these “quirks” before they become truly troublesome.

Wes’s Wagons provides common maintenance services for your Volkswagen, such as: Oil & Filter Changes, Air and Fuel Filter inspection and replacement, Spark Plugs inspection and replacement, Brake, Clutch, Power Steering, and Transmission Fluid Checks, Brake and Brake Component inspection and repair, Belt and Chain inspection and repair, and Error Code checks.

When left unchecked, easily preventable issues can arise. This results in higher costs and less time keeping your Volkswagen on the road. If you’re experiencing any trouble with your VW, be sure to stop by and see our certified Volkswagen specialist team. We will ensure you are getting the most performance and longevity out of your vehicle.

Audi Repair & Maintenance Services

In addition to being considered as a signature player in the German luxury car line, Audi offers one of the largest and most varied model line-ups of any car brand. They carry almost everything; from a supermini to an SUV to a supercar and nearly everything in between.

With these unique offerings, high price points, and extraordinary stylings, you are not driving an ordinary vehicle. So why would you take your Audi to an ordinary repair shop.

One of very few drawbacks to owning an Audi is the threat of electrical failure. In order to offer its drivers all of the luxury for which Audi is known, the manufacturer must rely on the latest technology. This can result in some sort of failure.

Electrical problems are the most common issue, but Audi owners have also gone on to report that ignition coil failure, oil leaks, and the replacement of parts, such as oxygen sensors and catalytic converters are not uncommon.

Besides common electrical issues, Audi’s do associate with a few other shared problems. It is not uncommon for Audi owners to experience the need to recharge the A/C system, repair the suspension, or replace CV joints, and more. Common replacements, such as brake pads, hoses and belts, gaskets, and bulbs will always be a reality to Audi drivers.

Quite often these problems are avoidable and, if taken to a trained professional while adhering to a dealer-recommended maintenance schedule, they will be caught before they become a more expensive fix. In fact, if not taken to the correct Audi repair specialist, the Audi owner may be at risk of voiding the car’s warranty!

Therefore, it is important that you only trust a repair shop that is factory trained and experienced in Audi repair. Wes’s Wagons is locally owned, family operated, and can do just about any mechanical service your Audi requires. From oil and filter changes to fluid checks, Wes’s Wagons will strive to keep your vehicle on the road.

Subaru Repair & Maintenance Services

Next time you are at a stop light, look around and count how many Subaru’s you see. A long time Montana favorite, the Subaru vehicle is known for its rugged durability, longevity, and top-notch all-wheel drive offerings. These cars are built to last and the older models make great first-time vehicles for those new drivers entering the roadways.

Even though these vehicles live up to their rugged reputation, they will need repairs at some point. And, like all vehicles they will need to follow a recommended maintenance cycle.

Some common issues Subaru faces are the air conditioner blowing warm during the summer months, loss of lubrication in the C/V Axle DOJ boots, wearing down of front suspension bushings, leaking head gaskets, and leaking oil Cooler O-Rings. Of course, more issue can arise – just like any vehicle – but research shows these issues as being commonly reported amongst Subaru owners.

The good news is that, when taken to a properly trained and experience Subaru repair shop, these issues can be identified and remedied. And, when following the correct maintenance schedule, they become non-issues because they can be caught before they become a problem.

Should you experience any problem with your Subaru, do not add generic leak stop products, quick-fix solutions, or other “band-aids” and bring your vehicle in immediately.  We understand that car trouble is never convenient and encourage you to make the time to get your vehicle the proper care it needs.

Since, oftentimes, these are simply the replacing of worn out parts, repairs can actually cost less than you might think. And, rest assured, they will cost far less than if you wait to long to address them.

Don’t wait too long to address your Subaru. The next generation of drivers are counting on it.
