    My Sprinter Van had transmission problems in El Sargento and there is no one that can work on it. I need to have it transported to repair shop in CA or at least get it to Tijuana . I had to fly back to US so vehicle was left . Can anyone recommend someone to help

    I would join our Facebook group – we have a lot of members living down in that area who could give you the best advice:

      I second Ron’s suggestion – his Facebook group is the best crowdsourcing option for you.

      Do you mind my asking what exactly broke down?

    My sister and brother-in-laws transmission failed on their ML450 about an hour north of La Paz last year. I just messaged her and she said the quotes to get towed to the border were outrageous. She said the owner of a restaurant there sent them to a local transmission shop that rebuilt their tranney for about the cost of what the tow to San Diego was going to cost them. And it’s still running great!

    These are the guys who did the work:

    I would definitely try to find a way to repair it locally, the cost of a tow back up to the border is not cheap.

    Thanks for the reply. I thought I was no the Facebook group. If I get it repaired there I still have to pay for flight and hotel and take time off from work to drive days back to US so having it transported is the east way . It is a German engine and not many people can work on these Sprinter vans then I would have communication issue with repair shop.

    I just wanted to know if anyone had ever used any of the transport companies .
