We are on our eighth or ninth Volvo (always used..never new) and with the help of Jim and Scott the cars have been great. One should never underestimate the backbone of this business and that is, Donna! She can diagnose most problems over the phone and does a great job of scheduling the customers. This is a business where the customer comes first and they will do their best to get the work done well and in a timely fashion.

Jim, Donna, and Scott at the Swedish Pit are really nice, really wonderful, funny, salt of the earth people. They are hands-down the best shop in the area to go to if you have a Volvo, period. They have years of expertise, work on every year and model of Volvos, race them competitively, and buy and sell used Volvos. I like these guys so much, when my 740 finally just got too mucked up, I just gave it to them for parts. I can get appointments a day out, and in emergencies same-day, and they've serviced my family's cars for well over 2 million miles worth of travel on our Volvos. Say hi to the doggies, too. Don't worry--if they bark, they just want food and belly rubs.

Jim has been working on Volvos since the 1960s and knows them very well. They are an honest and hardworking family. I highly recommend the Swedish Pit.

I'm always worried about finding a new mechanic to service my Volvo. The Swedish Pit left me beyond satisfied. Their service was very quick and of high quality. Scott listened to all the concerns I had about the car and addressed every one. I will definitely be taking the Volvo to them from now on.

Winter was coming on and while figuring I was in the market for a Subaru saw this 2001 Volvo V70 XC on Craigs list, buzzed down to Bennington and bought it with 175k miles and drove it back to Burlington, stopped by the fine folks at Girlington Garage who pointed me to Jimmy and the Swedish Pit. They went over the car fixed this and that and told me I had lucked into a car that had been well maintained so the transmission is likely to be ok. They used their own advanced techniques to change out the tranny fluid. The hood had a couple of big dents and low and behold they had a wreck of same year and color sitting in their lot and swapped it out along with fixing my moon roof with glass from that second car. Best of all is throwing balls for the dog to fetch and sitting and cracking up with Jimmy in the office, while his son and company do all the work - I love this Volvo and you can’t do better than the Swedish Pit
