Lyn is a very honest, religious man who would not think of cheating anyone. He works long hours and is highly experienced at diagnosis and repair of every Volvo problem known. (I've had most of the unusual ones). He is not a "parts changer", but repairs anything that can be repaired, not just a new one put on to make money. He has been rebuilding Volvos from crashed ones for many years and has encountered all the problems. He is a little slow, does not get ruffled, and very steady in his approach. I would recomend him to anyone.

This is a wonderful family-owned shop. Lyn rebuilds, sells, and repairs lots of Volvos, and his word-of-mouth reputation in this area is remarkable. I believe he is scrupulously honest, and boy does he know Volvos. It's not the speediest repair shop in the world, but they don't promise it before they can deliver in my experience. Visiting is like going to the Humane Society for Volvos - there are unloved, damaged, and newly repaired autos all over the place and one feels an almost irresistable urge to choose a couple to take home.

I love going out to see the guys at L&B. Well when it doesn't cost me much. They are the most trustworthy mechanics in the world and about the only ones around here who know anything about Volvo's. I always send my friends out there when they are looking for a car to buy. Nothing beats an old 240 Wagon! Even though Lynn doesn't make much money off the older cars he keeps a few ready for us poor college students. The best thing about L&B is the family atmosphere. If you get to see the garage area not only are Lynn and Darrell working out there but also all of Lynn's sons. When you go to pay you are most likely going to talk to Lynn's wife. When your out there make sure to take one of the homeless kittens that Lynn and the family fosters. You need a car or car fixxed or a kitten, head out to L&B. It is worth it for the beautiful drive alone.

Lynn also works on SAABs and has almost as many wrecked SAABs sitting around the shop as Volvos. I want to second the previous comments about integrity and knowledge of SAABs.

My 05 Volvo was rear-end destroyed & that car saved my life. I researched on dealers for days then drove 6 hours into the lovely VA mountains with old farms all around (a Mennonite community I believe) to get to the most amazing Volvo rehab facility you will find anywhere. There are thousands of used Volvos on hand for them to pull parts from (it is like the Forest Lawn of Volvos), a body shop just for Volvos & mechanics just for Volvos with decades of experience in obtaining insurance-written off Volvos with surprising little damage (they give you "before" pictures for the cars you consider). Lynn and his family/workers know everything about Volvos & they do all the body work/mechanical work themselves to bring you a tip-top shape car with seriously low miles (my 07 xc70 has 57k miles & is beautiful) for thousands of dollars less than you can find anywhere else. What is more, Lynn and his community up there have old-world values of hard work, integrity, honesty, modesty, and lack of greed. They have pride in what they do & they want you to have a good reliable & safe car. I have purchased 12 cars in my lifetime and have never had a car-buying experience like this. It is like an old world craftsman built you a custom piece of furniture & can tell you everything about it & you can enjoy it with confidence for many years. I drove my 07 xc70 that I bought from them 310 miles back to coastal NC after that through rain & some sleet with zero problems. They even have a 2-month / 2k miles warranty should anything go wrong. Even more, I know I can call Lynn & get his decades of specialty knowledge in Volvos to help with whatever might come up. If you want safety #1 get a Volvo. If you want that unparalleled level of experience/expertise and integrity to get a really fine car with low miles and a seriously good price, hit the road for L & B Auto up in Rustburg, VA.
