Volvo Centrum provides THE best workmanship on ALL Volvo models, all years. Best in the USA for repairs...I have the feeling that the only better place would be the repair shop of the Volvo manufacturers in Sweden. Bill and Trond are the best at the shop. They offer timely scheduling (even though they are always busy) and seem to know exactly what your car might need to keep it running well. Volvo Centrum keeps your car's history in their computer system. Almost all their mechanics are Swedish, what a lovely thing that is. Plenty of places to shop while waiting (Castro district) or ways to get around the city (just 1/2 block from Market St.). reference: Jill DeBroff, '85 DL 240 Wagon, Mill Valley

Volvo Centrum IS a grade A shop. They'll work with you to keep your car in as good a condition as you can afford, but don't push repair and maintenace that isn't necessary. I've found them to be courteous and candid. For us, the shop isn't convienient, but I always find a way to get our 940 there when it needs work or maintenance because I trust the shop.

Bill and Trond do fab. stuff on our car. I worked on my car one day and put in after market parts that did not work. Bill now checks my fingernails to see if I have been playing around. These guys are great

As a former diplomat (but always a Volvo owner) I've had my Volvos repaired from Munich to Nairobi with a few places in-between. Volvo Centrum is without doubt the best Volvo shop I;ve ever seen. Not as clean and shiny as a German shop, but Tron and Bill are every bit as competant and experienced as any German mechanic I've ever met. They work by appointment, but you can be guaranteed that the car will be ready when they say it will be ready. Volvo's aren't cheap, but I have the feeling they undercut the competition by 20%.

I have never felt more satisfied with any shop that has ever worked on any car I've owned, than Bill and the team at Volvo Centrum. I took my car to this shop for years and they were friendly, timely and most importantly, honest. Any time the car was either serviced or diagnosed, Bill would always tell me what really needed to be done, or what I could wait on. They are very busy, but never had to keep my car longer than they estimated. I always loved hearing the mechanics speaking Swedish....how can you go wrong with mechanics that have probably worked on these cars since they were kids? I really miss this shop!
