Anyone know a good VW mechanic to work on a very nice Karmen Ghia?

Hi Steve,

What do you need done to the GHIA. Engine work, body work, electrical?

Diagnosing an odd noise when cornering. Hub bearings have been changed along with some other work but it persists. I haven't worked on the car personally, it's for a friend and his mechanic is too busy for the job.

Hi Steve,

Try calling 805-212-6743.
Rodnie at 1384 Callens Rd Unit C Ventura, Ca. 93003.
Rodnie works on my friends GHIA and he is very picky so Rodnie is good at what he dose.

Hope this helps.

Did this ever get sorted out ? .

What year 'Ghia was it ? (makes a BIG difference in diagnosing cornering noises) .

He found someone who eventually figured it out. I don't know what the problem turned out to be though.
