    So my 1981 VW diesel was sitting at idle after driving it, say 20 miles, and then it just abruptly shut down. It won't turn over or anything now.

    Between my wife and my 7 year old son I don't know who has put more scratches on our 09 jetta. I am new to the bowmanville Ontario area and was wondering if anyone knows a good auto detailer who can take care of the scratches and give it a good polish and shine.
