They have been a great help with both my old 86 volvo and my new one. They keep the old one running great, and inspected my new one before I bought it and warned me about models to avoid. No extra repairs, no unexpected costs. I drive to their garage from an hour away now that I've moved. I'm very happy with their work.

Kathy and Andy are awesome mechanics, really nice people, and great teachers of the fine art of swearing in Sweedish at older Volvo's. These folks have been not only great mechanics but good friends who have taught me alot about my car and have encouraged me to do some repairs myself, even teaching me how to do it, then letting me pirate the part off of a wreck that they have to do the repair, all at no CHARGE! Good folks, highly recommended

Andy, Cathy, and Brian are great mechanics who will do what you want without the unnecessary repair. If something can wait, they'll tell you. They've helped me fix my 240 myself, and keep it running with 312k, and our 960 with only 118k. Highly recemmended.

This mechanic steered be to having the oil changed every 3000 miles. I only wish I'd heard earlier to move away from the 7500 mile oil changes the manufacturer recommends.

Andy and his crew make my life easier and my car last far longer than it would were it not under their care. I empathize with the other customer who drives one hour to have it serviced by Harrison's. I would do the same.

Never had anything but the best here! I especially like how they take the time to explain the problems and the options for repair, and I've noticed that the information and tone doesn't change whether they're talking to me (the Volvo fanatic) or to my husband.

I have taken my two Volvo's (one with 178k and one with 213k miles) to them for years, and they have recommended fixes that do not involve the major replacement of components that I had expected. I have never met a mechanic that is as honest as Andy Harrison, the shop owner, and routinely ask him for his opinion on what needs to be replaced and repaired to keep my cars safe and reliable. They are a pleasure to work with.

Awesome! They did some repair work on my car, made a human mistake and caused damaged to it. Immediately responded, provided rental and fixed the car with no problems, no passing off as someone else's problem. Kept in contact with us the whole time, keeping us up to date on happenings. Mechanics like this are hard to find, they have found a life long customer in us.

Terrific people who not only take the time to explain what is going on, but if possible, will give you cheaper alternatives to the usual repair. For example, my 86 Volvo lost its electronic overdrive, and instead of just replacing with new (Which would have exceeded the value of the car), they asked if a used from the junkyard would be okay at about half the price. Worked awesome for the 2 years I continued to own it! :)
