John has a small shop in South Austin. If you are a older (240/740) Volvo fan and are looking for an alternative to a dealer try Volvo Only. John is great help even in case when you are planning to do the repair yourself. Won't do the unnecessary repairs either. Prices are VERY reasonable.

Swedish Auto Service on the corner of Braker and Lamar is a place to stay away from. The work they did for me was incomplete in a lot of ways and there were new problems that appeared while the car was in their shop that they refused to take any responsibility for. Also they didn't properly replace the air intake on the Turbo for my Volvo 740. The result was that a couple of days after I got the vehicle back it started dogging in a big way. Then I opened the hood and saw my intake hose just hanging there and felt extreme frustration. Thought I would share this as Volvos are finicky and need proper attention.

I purchased a 1985 Vovlo 740 turbo wagon from John. The same night I went and met my brother in-law to do a side job and make some extra cash. I figured I would take the car instead of my truck to run it a little and see how it ran. Well half way home from the job the car started to loose power and then all of a sudden it was fine. Get to the next stop light press on the gas same problem loosing power wouldn't even climb the hill in front of me and then it just would not run. My brother in-law towed me home and I called John the next day. He told me to try and put a couple of gallons of gas in it and see if it will run. I did and it ran fine. I called him back and let him know, Right away he said ok I will be over to your house in the morning. I was very surprised to hear this! The next morning he showed up with a few parts pulled the fuel pump from the tank and found the hose connecting the fuel pickup tubes had deteriorated to the point that there was no hose there at all. John had all the necessary parts with him to fix it and had it fixed within 30 minutes he also replaced the fuel filter while he was in there. The car is running great now. I highly recommend John he stands behind the cars he sells and the work he performs. A++++ rating.
