"SwedeMasters was wonderful. I had been told, by a Volvo dealer, that I needed to get my control arm bushing replaced and they quoted me over 800 dollars...what?! So I went to SwedeMasters and they said it would be 400! Then, when I brought my car in, they checked it out and said the bushings didn't need to be replaced yet...not for another 10-20,000 miles! They were wonderful and checked my car over several times to be sure. When I came to pick up my car, there was no charge! They are the best at SwedeMasters! I will definitely be going back there when something is actually wrong with my car!"

"Been servicing my 1998 Volvo S70 here since 2005. Won't ever go any where else. Just had it in (after 18 months) for regular maintenance, they provided a loner and cleaned the car inside and out, no extra charge! Bob provides excellent front desk service. Tim always explains things clearly, to whatever level of detail I'm interested in or have time for. He goes the extra mile to make the fixes fit my budget. I'll never go anywhere else as long as I own my Volvo (170K and still 23 mpg!)"

"My Volvo decided it was allergic to oil, and as such, dumped the entire contents of the reservoir onto my driveway. I phoned them to let them know I'd be bringing in my disaster the following morning. Sure enough, they had it fixed and back in shape by the end of that day. SwedeMasters are domain experts. While I'm sure any other generic mechanic could have gotten the job done, I'm convinced the job wouldn't have been done as fast or with the high quality of workmanship that SwedeMasters continually demonstrates."

With virtually no notice, I stopped by their shop for them to look at a headlight that had gone out. It was clearly a very busy day, but Tim quickly and courteously whisked my car in to look it over--and then fixed the problem while I waited! I had expected to have to leave the car all day, or to have to come back another day--but instead they fixed the problem, and I was on my way in no time. Thank you SwedeMasters for your exemplary service!"

He looks at the big picture and the details, and rarely overlooks something. The best part about it, however, was Rick's easy-going manner and friendliness.

Connie S. on 8/9/2010:
"Service was quick which I appreciated. Only thing was I was surprised that the technician did not notice that my engine light noted "alarm had been triggered". I'll need to bring the car back in and ask for how to have the message stop appearing each time I start the car. Of course, if I had not been in a hurry I should have thought to ask when I dropped the car off."

"Swedemasters is the premiere service organization for Volvo and Saab. Tim & Bob are the greatest! They understand their customer's needs & take all the time to make their customers feel comfortable & special. They have taken wonderful care of me & my nine year old Volvo. Each experience is always positive. They do everything to keep costs down. In the most dire of circumstances, they have helped me in the most extraordinary way! As a single woman, it is very difficult to know who to trust in this area. Please know that Tim and Bob are the guys to trust in the kindest and most cost effective manner. They are also very quick to respond. My car feels like a new car & because of them, I have a renewed sense of pride in it! Without reservation, I highly recommend that you RUN, not walk should your Volvo or Saab require service or repair."
