Kevin, a Volvo mechanic with 25 years experience, has been taking care of our S70 Volvo wagon for six years. During that time, we have spent a quarter of what it might have been if we went to a dealership. Kevin never has done unnecessary Vovlo repair work on our car and often finds ways to save major bucks by fixing things rather than just replacing them. Once you meet him, you know right away that you are in good hands. While there are other shops in the area that do good work. I don't know of any that provide the value and cost savings that Kevin does in his shop. He just doesn't have the overhead that the fancy, big Volvo service places do with all the employees and other expenses. Kevin worked for 25 years at one of the top Volvo dealerships, so he knows all the tricks of the trade and shares them with you, to save money.
