  • My partner and I were very lucky to find Chris and Tammy when our older Volvo 240 broke down. Chris was able to accurately diagnose the problem (faulty fuel pump) and did everything possible to get us back on the road quickly. We were impressed with both his expert car knowledge and his communication. I’ve never had a mechanic who communicated as clearly and transparently as Chris - he also has a great sense of humor. If we didn’t live a few hours away Chris would be our go to mechanic. We highly recommend Expert Volvo.

  • Expert Volvo is the only place I bring my automobiles. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about Volvos and their possible quirks. His familiarity with the brand has saved me thousands of dollars over the years.

    The owner of Expert Volvo, Chris, is so nice, and his prices are very fair. He genuinely seems to care about his customers and goes above and beyond to be sure customers feel safe in their vehicle, and he takes time to listen and help wherever he can. I live about 30 minutes from his shop and am willing to travel whenever my vehicle needs to be serviced. Very honest and great customer service.

    There is not a more fair and honest or knows Volvo mechanic or expert that I have found with Expert Volvo. Everything Chris has said has been proven true. If you have a Volvo, figure out how to use him. Worth the miles, any of them.

    Chris is the best. He is a straight shooter and provides great Volvo service at a fair price. I cannot recommend him and Expert Volvo enough.

    First of all I had brought my Volvo to another shop, they estimated the repair at nearly $2,200.00, after spending $375.00 installing a part that was not needed I did some research and found Chris at Expert Volvo. I contacted him, and after several emails, (which I appreciated his time corresponding with me via email, very helpful) I made an appointment. He diagnosed the problem, sent my part off to be rebuilt, gave me a loaner part to return back home, when the part was repaired, brought the car back to have it installed, the final bill was less than $1,000.00 that included a oil change. Expert Volvo is about 100 miles from where we live, I would travel that distance every day to work with a honest man like Chris! Once again Chris, thank you so much, Andrew

    The first time I brought my car to Expert Volvo I was unsure of what was wrong with my car. I called Chris to set up an appointment and get an estimate. Just by telling him the symptoms of my car he was able to pinpoint what was wrong and the cost to fix it. Chris is genuinely an awesome guy, I have never met a mechanic like him before. He was able to get my Volvo back on the road in a short amount of time at a VERY affordable price. I've only gone to him once for repairs, but I know now that I've found my mechanic that I will go to for as long as I own a Volvo! He is very knowledgeable and does his profession well! We have already planned out my next appointment to replace the timing belt, front engine mount, and the coolant expansion tank at a reasonable price! I would highly recommend bringing your Volvo to him. He knows exactly what he's doing, gets it done quick, and will go out of his way to get you the best possible deals/total cost to fix your car!

    I have been bringing my car to Chris for about a year now. Professional, personal, honest. My niece just bought a Volvo and will also be bringing hers to Chris . I would absolutely recommend Expert Volvo/Chris. (His new place needs some grease and dirt on the floor).

    Chris at Expert Volvo was great. He fixed the problems with our s70 with his eyes closed. He also helped make it better by installing a higher performance radio and installed a newer door to replace the original that was dented...our daughter loved the car!

    I brought my S60R to this guy, he did a great job. Very professional, affordable and most of all honest. If your looking for a good mechanic you can Expert Volvo.

    This guy was awesome. Knew how to use the Volvo computer very well. Was able to turn on my power seat that had not been working for over a year. The local dealer wanted to charge me $600 for the same repair that cost me $150 here. Hands down this guy and Expert Volvo have my business.

    I brought my Volvo XC to him because of a leak I had with my coolant. I did not have an issue with the price only with the fact that I woke up the next morning and had coolant all over my garage floor. He used a zip tie to attach the hoses instead of something more durable and permanent and as a result the connection was extremely poor and weak. I got to see the result all over my garage floor. He seems to be a bright enough fellow, but also seemed to be very sloppy.
