These guys really did right by me. I was at a music festival in Winfield, KS. Actually, THE music festival; the Walnut Valley Festival; best in the country. Anyway, we're heading home to Colorado pulling a pop-up camper with my Volvo S70. It starts bucking; shutting off completely for a second or two at a time. A local guy in Winfield did his best, but didn't have the diagnostic tools, and we couldn't get it to repeat the failure. He sent me towards Wichita, and enroute I contacted Gorges Volvo in Wichita, splained to them that I was trying to get home to Colorado, but nope, they couldn't look at it; I guess being 500 miles away from home and work ain't no big deal to them. By contrast, Euro-Tech looked at it as soon as they could, did their best to diagnose it using the on-board diagnostics tools--again, we couldn't get it to fail--and came through with a decent, if not definitive, call on the Mass Air Flow Sensor by their closing time. Plus, he replaced a few minor vacuum hoses that looked suspect. I couldn't stay over that night to get the work completed; I had to leave and get home. We had a confab about the best way to make it; since the problem had occurred only when pulling the camper and in the heat, he suggested we leave the camper in Wichita, which we did (a friend will bring it later), and try taking it easy on the way home. And I made it home. The guy who diagnosed it said they normally charge $85 for the computer diagnosis (seems fair to me), but since they hadn't been able to fix it, they knocked it down to $28 and change. It wasn't THEIR fault they couldn't fix it; I had to take off, and really appreciated their effort to get me on the road. Ya live in fear of breaking down far from home and getting shafted, but these guys really did their best, and I really appreciate it.

One of maybe two places in town that will work on a newer SAAB. I had no choice but to go to them. The guy behind the counter was always grumpy. I learned, because they don't update the customer or tell them when the car is ready to pick up, to call in the early afternoon because the one guy in the front office would be in a little better mood. They never seemed busy, but each time I brought the car in it would take forever for them to get the work done. At least I think it took forever because they'd never call to say the car was ready, so I'd end up calling the next day to check in. Sometimes it was done, sometimes they hadn't even got to my car. These were never outrageously complex repairs. I ended up learning to work on the car myself so I could avoid them. Now I -know- the work I needed in the past was not that difficult or time consuming. On the plus side: They once drove me to work when I brought my car in. They replaced a $50 sensor at no cost when doing some related work. I know one SAAB owner that is totally in love with this shop, and he usually has good judgement. Maybe they just didn't like my face. So try them once and see what you think. Just be ready to call THEM to find out when the car is done.
