This guy makes us wish all our cars were Volvos.

Vartkes and his crew take excellent care of my 1997 S70. It has 99k miles and I'm keeping longer than I originally expected to because I trust their service and appreciate their fair repair charges. I highly recommend them!

Vartkes, Mike and Coco have been taking care of our Volvos for years. In fact when my first Volvo was totaled (by a valet parking attendant), we bought another Volvo because we wanted to keep Vartkes and company as our trusted mechanics. Always honest, always good prices, always dependable.

Vartkes, Koko and Mike are very friendly and very honest with customers. I prefer them to repair my car than the dealership, because they are cost effective, very professional, they have excellent workmanship and up to date diagnostic equipments. They repair the necessary, and I get recommendations for future repairs. I highly recommend them.

Expert, reliable, good people to deal with and well known as the place to go for Volvo service - what more can you ask for?

I highly recommend Independent Volvo in Pasadena. Over the past 30 years, I have had cars serviced in Los Angeles and elsewhere by a variety of shops, including high end dealers and independent shops (starting with Batway's (a one of a kind Corvair shop which lovingly cared for my first car, a 1963 Monza). I would rank Independent Volvo at the top of the list. They have taken care of Volvos for me and my wife for many years (including a wagon and a convertible), and we have always been happy with the people there and their work. We have found them to be very helpful, knowledgeable, honest and pleasant to work with. As noted above, I highly recommend them.

I found this shop for my mother through the Car Talk Mechanic Files site YEARS ago. My mom has been going ever since. The owners and workers there have been so nice and honest, and they treat my mother with respect. She sent me a message a while back about them: "Thank you so much for looking up and then recommending the Independent Volvo company. They have been absolutely wonderful. Today, when I tried to open the cover to the engine compartment in the front of the car so that I could add a little more oil, the latch worked but I was not able to open the lid more than a couple of inches. I took the car into them this afternoon and they immediately diagnosed the problem, then Mike went right away to get the replacement part - and then fixed it right away, and they only charged $22 for the part – no service charge at all and the whole thing took less than 20 minutes. So greatful for your help. Much Love, Mom" Thanks Independent Volvo!!!
