Bo Jonsson runs a good garage and I trust him with all my Swedish cars. Does it make a difference that he's Swedish himself? Probably not. But it's comforting... and if he has to keep the car an extra day it always takes the edge off to hear him say "Ja, you're gonna be walkin' home tonight."

A great place for your Swede. Looking pretty young for my age and perhaps not appearing very mechanically inclined, i find alot of mechanics out there only very happy to charge a little more or feed me some line about some jet engine intake problem. I've always found the Bo and Pat to be very honest and let me think I know what's going on with my car. Knowing little volvo is a little hefty to repair, they always give me an itemized list of what needs repairing, and rate each item in order of importance. Price? Volvos are expensive to fix, that's it. By the way...the Caltrain station is a few blocks away...

We've taken our Volvos to Bo Jonnson's for the past ten plus years because of the quality service our cars receive. You can get their shop contact info at

I had been taking my Saab somewhere else for service when it wouldn't start close to Bo Jonsson due to a faulty remote. He fixed it that day and threw in a complete inspection - all for free. Since then minor and major repair work has been done flawlessly. Eric
