H2OVanagon was created several years ago as a division of Stephan's Auto Haus to provide comprehensive VW Vanagon services such as engine conversion, complete restoration, and general repairs.






​Stephan has been working on cars since he purchased his first vehicle when he was just 14 years old. Stephan took the skills he learned in his Texas backyard and turned them into a career in automotive repair. Moving to California in the late 80's Stephan landed a job at an independent Firestone shop in Sacramento and worked there for over 8 years. While employed at Firestone he went to school to "fine tune" his automotive skills.

After working as an auto mechanic for over 20 years, he decided to open his own shop in 2002. Since then Stephan outgrew the two bay shop near Sacramento City College and found a much larger building even closer to Sac. City College. 

Stephan's daily driver is a '01 Audi S4. Second up is his '90 VW Vanagon Syncro Westfalia. He wishes he could drive the Wunder Bread Race Vanagon every day..





Melissa has been an invaluable part of our team for over 5 years handling all aspects of the office including accounting and HR duties. Melissa knows every aspect of SAH. Chances are you may be talking to Melissa first when you call in. 

Melissa daily driver is a '15 BMW 535i.





​Tyler is our VW Vanagon line tech. A Journeyman technician there isn't any job on a VW or Vanagon that Tyler can not master. From Axles to Yokes Tyler knows it all. We are lucky to have his cheerful attitude every day around us. Tyler lives and breaths VW's. When not working on them you can catch enjoying the VW community at shows.
