I was 450 miles from home visiting my son in northern Virginia when my wife got concerned with a loud sound coming from the front of her Volvo station wagon. Looked up find a mechanic on your web site and found Don Allen Service Center. I was afraid it was another bad wheel bearing. I called them and was able to get the car in the shop immediately. They road tested the car and then put it on the lift,pulled the tires and determined it was just the loud heavy snow tires we recently had put on.They would not take any money for the services performed and wished me a safe trip back to Vermont. Don Allen,with whom I dealt, could not have been kinder or more helpful in his dealings with me. What a good and honest businessman. I would recommend him to anyone in the area.

Don always charges a fair rate for repairs. Once he charged me nothing when I took my Volvo in to fix a tail- light. Another time I tried to sell him my car for what I considered a fair price. He told me I could get a lot more for it (well above blue book). Don works fast, gets it right, and is honest in everything he does. I don't know how he stays in business, but I wish all mechanics were as trustworthy as him.

Don Allen possesses a wealth of knowledge about cars, and I feel confident that they do the job right every time with my experience.

Don and his team have been our mechanic of choice since 2004. Though he specializes in Volvo, Mercedes and BMW, he's done Audi and Saab work for us as well. His forthright and honest pre-sale inspection for a used Volvo we were interested in saved us a great deal of heartache. Can't beat the proximity to public transportation -- his shop is a short walk from the Van Dorn Metro station.
