Hi - I'm new and wondering if there are recommendations for reliable / not too pricey mechanic for my 2011 C30? From another thread i gleaned that Mike at Northmount Auto is a good guy and has Volvo dealer experience. What do people think of "Mr Volvo Plus"?

Thanks!

You won't find one person here that will recommend Mr Volvo. Not necessarily for poor work but for the attitude of the owner.

So many of us do our own work. Based purely on experience of myself and others I know who to [b][i]not[i][b] take your car to. Mr Volvo is one of them. Alberta Auto Electric on Manchester Rd always has a bunch of Volvos around. I would not recommend going there. Easily the dirtiest and most disorganized shop I've ever been in. I've dealt with him a bit. I'm sure there are horror stories about every shop in town. It's unavoidable.

Magnum Automotive on Manchester road seems to have a reasonable reputation and knows Volvos at least a little bit. Din and Shiraz at All Makes are good guys but I seem to remember something about them not working on Volvos anymore.

Didn't Alex open his own shop?

That was more for some of our other members. Alex is a member here and I know a while ago he was planning to open a shop. I never got many details and don't know if he ever did. I was hoping someone else might know...
