I think that once you find really great mechanics, then when you are deciding what car to buy for yourself, you should buy the kind of car that they work on. I believe that the biggest reason old Volvos are so popular in Boulder is Swedish Motors. I can't imagine a better car- repair company.

We've taken our Volvo to Swedish Motors for the past 2 years, when we bought our first (used) Volvo. On two occasions, they have checked something out for me on the spot, free of charge. The best thing about them (other that the character-rich loaners they provide) is that they will tell you if they think a repair is uneccesary and discuss cheaper options. They are GREAT!

Swedish motors has done the majority of my maintenance an all the repair (unscheduled) work on my '01 XC. Their prices for maintenance have consistently been favorable to that offerred by local dealers. Their mechanics have always been willing to answer my questions. I highly recommend them.

I don't understand the favorable reviews here, but since there are only a few, I suspect they are written by cast and crew of Swedish. RUN, don walk, AWAY from this place. The definition of fraud is a misstatement of material fact, knowing it is not true and that it will be relied upon, the other party relies upon it and is damaged.. This place is a FRAUD. My son brought my C70 convertible to these assclowns because of a coolant leak. Given the C70 has seen better days, but overall it was a reliable fun car. After their inspection, they reported that the radiator failed and needed to be replaced. The repair was performed at a cost of nearly $1,000, we paid and drove away. That was in late November 2012. Fast forward to May, 2013. The car has about 6,000 more miles on it than in November and the coolant again is leaking. My son returns the car to Swedish for inspection. Low and behold they discover that who ever worked on the radiator last damaged it, and repaired the damage with "a white substance" and that there is a wrong hose on the radiator. Understand that my son isn't one to work on cars, especially cars that are running fine, so the hood wasn't even opened since November when Swedish worked their magic. The shop manager goes on and on about who ever worked on that radiator not doing things properly, then states in no uncertain terms that it they are not responsible. They also state that the car is now undrivable because of overheating. We ultimately called a junk yard and scrapped the car. Because of Swedish, this C70 went from a reliable fun older car to scrap. Nice job assclowns. Swedish asserts that someone else must have performed this repair. This is unbelievable. Why in the world after paying $1,000 would we have anyone else work on what Swedish already did??? Perhaps someone broke into my garage and performed the shoddy repair without our knowing???? My requests to speak with the owner went unanswered. I just can't believe this place. Its one thing to do shoddy work, and another level to refuse to accept responsibility. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU VALUE YOUR CAR.
