These guys aren't European car mechanics who will begrudgingly work on your Volvo too- Volvo's are these guys SPECIALTY. They're not cheap, but they certainly have the nearest Volvo dealer beat hands down. My one quibble is they snuck an overpriced (25?!) generic paper air filter onto the bill without asking. Yeah, the old one was dirty, but they should have asked.

Tom treats volvos like they are his own kids and just like a good parent, he doesn't spoil 'em either. Recently he talked me out of repairing my 240's heater core (big $$) until I really, really needed it done. so far so good!

Ken Gore is honest and reliable as a mechanic and advisor to Volvo owners seeking to keep their car rolling and rolling.

I was visiting family in Wisconsin last week when my '95 Volvo began leaking coolant at a frantic rate. Since the source wasn't immediately visible I needed a reliable, honest mechanic fast - so I turned to the Mechanics Files. I couldn't have asked for better treatment! Ken took me in immediately and mechanic John found the problem - a split under a hose clamp (I had already had another local non- Volvo garage where we were staying look for a leak, unsuccessfully). Fixed the problem fast, at a very reasonable price, and sent me happily on my way without the need to stop for water every 50 of the 1,100 miles back to New Hampshire. While I was waiting for the repair I chatted extensively with two long-term customers (which seems to be the pattern at Auto Werkes), who agreed with all of the kudos on the Car Talk website. If you're within driving distance of Milwaukee you couldn't find a better shop, better attitude, better prices, and more loyal customers!

Ken, Glen, and the staff at Auto Werkes may appear to be a little rough around the edges, but they will repair your car with skill and thrift. They will take the time to answer your questions, explain what went wrong, what your car needs, and they are extremelly honest. Even though the repair center is not very close to my home, I make the effort to drive to Auto Werkes because they are so great! The "Volvo Cult" members in Milwaukee are very loyal to this shop. My whole family owns Volvo's and we all take our cars there. We have never found any other shop in Milwaukee that beat thier prices.

After paying exorbitant service fees at the local Volvo dealership, I took the advice of a friend and fellow Volvo owner and tried Auto Werkes about 2 years ago. I've had more than my share of Volvo issues but Ken and his staff have been great. Everything is explained in detail before and after the work has been completed and his prices are significantly less than the dealer. I have recommended them to other Volvo owners I know and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Its refreshing to find someone who competent, honest, reasonable and friendly in any business today much less the auto repair business.
