What people are saying about us.

Great service. Reasonable and fair prices. Tom seems like the kind of guy who wants to have you as a long term customer rather than make a quick buck. He hasn’t steered me wrong. I am extremely satisfied with his service for two cars. I would highly recommend to anyone with a Volkswagen.

I can’t say enough about Same Old Brand and their amazing staff! My Beetle’s driver’s seat would not engage rendered my manual car almost useless as I could not reach the clutch. I came in on Tuesday morning at 8am and told them of my plight. The service person was extremely friendly and came out to look at my car, took some time to try to figure out what was wrong, immediately fixed it, and did not charge me! This is customer service at its best and something we need more of. If I lived in the area, they would be my service shop! I highly recommend them to my friends in Monmouth County! Great service, great people, absolutely trustworthy! A rare find!!

New to the area & in need of an oil change for my Passat & really unwilling to go to the dealer where I have been paying inflated prices , I found Same Old Brand on Yelp. He was pleasant , accommodated my need to have the work completed early afternoon so I could make an early evening appointment , & the price was reasonable . I will definitely be taking my car here for future needs . Give it a try!

I was incredibly impressed with this place. I received a call about 30 minutes after dropping off my car. It was fixed early the next day and the price was very reasonable. It’s sad that we’ve come to find an honest and reliable mechanic a rarity these days, but you can rest assured you’ve found one here. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service. I will not be taking my VW anywhere else.

You will not find another shop anywhere in NJ with the highest level of integrity, honesty, quality of service, professionalism, quick turnaround time, and fair pricing that Same Old Brand provides. It is truly refreshing to know that you can take your car in for service blind-folded and never again get ripped-off. There’s no other place I’d entrust my VW (or any other car for that matter) with.

I’ve been taking my car here for years. Tom is a trustworthy mechanic and does quality work at a reasonable price. Definitely worth your business.

Have been going to Tom for years. He is the most knowledgable and honest VW mechanic that I have ever run into in 35 years of VW ownership. His prices are reasonable and the service is top quality.
