After picking up our “new” Vanagon from Cesar, we immediately took off for a cross country jaunt to our home in Hector, NY.

I’ve been driving buses for over 30 years, and have to say that this one is my favorite; “souped up” just enough to make it comfortable on rough roads, and a great ride with enough pickup to cruise comfortably on today’s highways.

Thanks Cesar!

The team at California Westys is courteous, efficient, and knowledgeable.

Cesar helped us sort through ads all across the country to find a van that was in our price range and met our specs.  Then, when we had some engine trouble with it halfway across the country, he worked with the local mechanics over the phone to make sure things were done right!  Since then, we’ve taken the van camping in the mountains with no problems!  Now that we’ve moved to San Diego, California Westy’s is the only place we’ll take our van for a little extra TLC.

Thanks, Cesar!

If I Can Trust Them with a Subaru Engine Conversion, I’d Trust Them with Pretty Much everything else.

These guys are a class act.  I went to them for the conversion of my Vanagon to a Subaru engine using the Kennedy Engineering retrofit.  Given the CARB rules, this is the only legal way in California to accomplish this kind of upgrade away from the stock engine, which--let's face it--is underpowered and had flaws from the start.  The Subaru engine is a big improvement--a more modern design, more power, quieter, smoother running, and more peace of mind that comes with greater reliability.  Not a cheap option, but their pricing is in line with that of others around the country.  Cesar took the time to discuss everything with me beforehand, showed me a conversion he was currently working on, and completed the job well ahead of schedule.  If I can trust them with an engine replacement, I'd trust them with pretty much everything else, and I'll be taking my van to them from now on.  It is priceless to have a resource like this local to San Diego.  Great van karma!

The Guys at California Westys Really Know Their Stuff!

In a word, CA Westy and it's owner, Cesar, are awesome. We came across CA Westy after having major problems with another mechanic while our Westy was undergoing a Subaru conversion. Not only did Cesar & crew fix the faulty wiring and other related problems, he went above and beyond in offering advice and excellent pricing on further work that we had done. Our Westy is now our second home, and we just came back from a whirlwind trip through Utah, Colorado, & Arizona, winding up in the Grand Canyon. The guys at CA Westy really know their stuff & are super easy to talk with; everything is completed in such a timely manner, we feel very fortunate that we found CA Westy!
