moved over to model garage from mckevitt b/c MG seems to make sensible changes to the maintenance schedule which save $; they don't seem to 'up-sell' or push work just to boost profit. they are very smart, and personable. it feels like they put more thought and attentiveness into the work than other shops. their rates seem slightly less than mckevitt, but i think the service is better. they also replaced headlight bulbs (on a volvo v70) for me for just the cost of the bulbs, which is really, really appreciated, especially given how hard it is to replace those bulbs.

Thanks for your kind words. We hope to keep your car providing you with safe, reliable transportation. Thanks, Don

I have been a customer of Model Garage for about 30+ years. The first 4-5 cars were Volvos but now am driving an Avalon Toyoto and continue to get great service. I was willing to change auto manufacturers, but not mechanics!

Thanks for your kind words and your home-baked muffins. Don

Everyone here is amazingly nice and knowledgable. They always explain the problem to me in a way I can understand (I know nothing about cars) and they go the extra mile to fix and help in anyway they can! Always a great experience!

Thanks for your kind words, Don

I have a Volvo station wagon with 90000 miles that these guys have taken great care of for 6 years. I trust them implicitly, they always explain everything very well. Friendly, in the neighborhood, I feel lucky to have Don, Robert and the rest of the team.

Thank you for your kind words, Don

Always professional, helpful, courteous. I have been coming for years and will continue to do so because I trust them more than any other garage. Mostly, they don't do anything that doesn't absolutely need to be done. That's refreshing after going to a dealer for service with a newish car.

Thanks for your support, Don
