After swallowing a bill for $580 at the local dealership for a 5-year old Volvo worth maybe $581, we searched town for an alternative - found Carl Duke Volvo Repair and have been loyal customers since (over 15 years). We still have that original 1975 model now with over 500,000 miles. And because the shop provides great service, we've added several other Volvos to the stable with our immediate family: 1984 GL, 1990 760, 1994 850, 1995 850, 1996 850 and 1998 S70 T5. All have their complete medical records with Carl and just keep running (at a low per-mile cost) under his care!

I can only echo what others have said. Carl has been working on my Volvos for 8 years. The shop is honest, knowledgeable, and very reasonably priced. They fix it right the first time. I highly recommend them.

I switched back and forth between the dealer and Carl's shop for a number of years because the dealer is much closer to my house. Two years ago the dealer came up with a completely BOOOOOOOGUS (as Tom and Ray like to say) excuse to do a 1,500$ repair to the air conditioning on my 97 850. He wanted to change the heat exchanger under the dash. I thought the dealers reasoning sounded pretty fishy, so I told them "no thanks" and took the car Carl Duke. Turns out that all I needed was a recharge on the AC and everything has been fine for two years. The best part is that Carl didn't even charge me to recharge the AC! Needless to say, I will never set foot in my local Volovo dealership again. How this guy stays in business when he don't charge for half the work he does is beyond me. He must not own a boat. Now my life would be perfect if I could just get Carl to take care of my wife's VW!

Carl Dukes has served my in-laws 1980's volvo and now our 2000 xc70. They have always done a very good job. They have been very honest about what service we need and competativly priced.

Horrible place, don't even think of coming here. The actual Volvo dealership has better reputation and competent and PLEASANT customer service!! They are rude, deceitful and don't bother resolving THEIR screw up! Regret bringing my Volvo here. Save yourself and go elsewhere!!!

Carl Duke and his mechanics have worked on my Volvo's since 1992. They are honest and do things economically. They even have used parts for older model Volvos. This business is a model for the mechanic community. I highly recommend them to any Volvo owner.
