We have been customers of Lars Volvo for 20 years. Bob took over the family business after his father, Lars Gare passed away several years ago. Lars Volvo has always been a family business, and their reputation becomes known to Volvo owners largely through word- of-mouth recommendations. Lars Volvo is both honest and extremely competent. We can recommend this repair shop absolutely without reservation or hesitation. Lars Volvo deserves to become a model of service and business relationships for any small shop, anywhere. Please pass the word for anyone seeking a steady Volvo mechanic.

It took us too long to find him. His father was recommended a couple of decades ago when I first bought my '68 Volvo. But I had another mechanic who also was wonderful. It wasn't until after he died that I tried Lars, who by then had retired. His son, Bob, had taken over by then. We've been very satisfied ever since.

I went to Lars Gare Volvo one time because the transmission always seemed to lock up and I would have to push the "Shift Lock Override" to move from Park to Drive. I brought it to Bob who told me it would be kind of expensive to take apart the whole console between the front seats to fix the problem. I told him to do go ahead and fix it anyway. A few hours after I dropped off the car, Bob called to say that the problem was just a blown fuse. That was a very honest thing to do. He could have changed the fuse and told me anything. I like Bob.
