Volkswagen OEM Certification

Volkswagen OEM Certification

And why that matters to Long Island Volkswagen Owners

Benefits to the Volkswagen owner


We believe that only the engineers who built your car are qualified to determine how it is fixed. That is why we only follow the OEM guidelines when doing your repair. You get a car repair as safe as the day it was built.


The shiny finish is important. But it’s what is underneath the paint that matters most. This is also the point where the average shop can cut a lot of corners that you won’t see at first. Missed steps like corrosion protection can show up as rust once you leave the shop. Mid Island Collision Centers only performs OEM repair procedures to make sure instances like this never happens to you.


Maintain all Volkswagen factory warranties and safety standards when choosing a Volkswagen OEM shop.


When the repair is imperceptible, you can retain more of your resale value. When done improperly, paintwork and bodywork is easy to spot by the trained eye. Factory correct repairs are virtually undetectable.

We are a proud member of the Volkswagen OEM certification program.

The Volkswagen OEM certification program is very selective when choosing collision facilities for their program and we are proud to be Rockville Centre, NY ’s family owned and operated Volkswagen Certified Body Shop. We have been serving the area since 1955 and take pride in offering the safest, highest quality collision repairs available.

Special Equipment

Special Volkswagen-only repair equipment used here.

All manufacturers have a list of repair equipment and jigs that are required to be on their OEM programs. Not all shops make that kind of a financial investment. This often leads to improper repairs. Mid Island Collision Centers makes continual investments in our equipment and OEM training so you can be sure that your repair was done factory correct.
