... I researched for a porsche repair specialist and found Modderman. I found the large service repair garage reassuring because clearly, they were porsche specialists. Dave took 30 minutes to diagnose, test drive the TPM and was able to reset the TPM into learning mode. He said that should do the trick but if it doesnt, the repair cost would be $800 (not 1400). I drove it around for awhile and the sensors resynced with the TPM after 15 miles. So this is a huge shoutout to Dave who clearly loves Porsches, took the time to help me and then saved me $1400. He's earned my trust for all future repairs.Original recommendation
I take my 2001 Boxster and 2004 Cayenne S to Modderman. I trust Dave. He seems to genuinely love Porsches like I do. He took the business over from his father and uncle; now his son is around the shop.Original recommendation
Dave knows these cars very well. I recently took my Cayenne in for servicing, and he recognized a little-documented but common problem (tranny oil in the transfer case). Between fixing that and a typical oil & filters, the car is way way smoother than when I took it in.
I own a '89 944 NA with 150K miles on it and when it came time to replace the clutch I knew I could trust Dave and his crew. They previously replaced the water pump and timing belt and had me back on the road in no time. In the 3 years I have been in the Bay Area they have always taken great care of my car. If you value your Porsche then you are in good hands with Modderman Services, I have the receipts to prove it.Original recommendation
First time customer at Modderman. I needed ac work and many shops won't touch my car. After calling around a few places, I decided Modderman was the best choice. I was right in coming here.Original recommendation
They called me to update on the progress and provided a dead on estimate. No up sell and no pressure. Many shops will tell you your car will blow up if you do this and that. Not here.
Steve and Dave Modderman were very pleasant. They are also located 10-15 walk from Caltrains station at San Antonio. This makes drop off and pickup fairly easy.
I have been going to Modderman Service Inc. for 5+ years and have always received excellent service. Dave and his crew give honest feedback regarding your Porsche health. This give me piece of mind knowing my Porsche is so well looked after which allow me to focus on the driving enjoyment!Original recommendation
Dave is my goto guy for my Porsche Cayman S. He's friendly and yet great at what he's doing. Last time he even replaced my broken light bulbs for free when he fixed my TPS. Fast turn around and you know he would take care of your car. Highly recommended!
