Could not ask for more: skillful, warm, efficient, considerate people make up this team, who seem like next door neighbors who also fix cars.


Thanks for doing a great job on our crank case. We wish we didn't have to drop 1000 bucks, but the car is running great and Don gave us a really clear explanation of the problem and the fix.


Don & Peter have run the best garage I've ever been to. That's why I have been a loyal customer for over 20 yrs. They help find a car and repair it.


Work was done quickly. These mechanics don't try to sell you other services. They do what is needed and they do it very well.


Thanks to each of you for your many kindnesses each and every time I schedule an appointment with you. I find it amazing that my Sienna continues to run (mostly) trouble free after 170,000. I would expect that from a Volvo. Hoping you all continue to keep the ship afloat in this unyielding economy.


I've been a Model Garage customer for two decades. They've serviced all our cars - from our Volvo, to our Camry and now our Prius. Great consistent quality of care and very environment conscious in all their practices.


I'm new to the area and took my 96 Volvo in for a check up. Setting up the appointment was super easy, the staff is organized and warm. Prices are great, they gave me a student discount and didn't try to sell me stuff I didn't need. Very honest, very efficient, I highly recommend this place!


Model Garage never disappoints w/quality and honest work. In contrast to dealers, I never feel that unnecessary work is in any way promoted


Hands down the best garage ever. I won't bring my Volvo anywhere else.


You guys are so wonderful to deal with, it's almost a shame I don't have more reasons to go in! I will be calling, actually, because my new brakes are making a grinding noise and I don't know if that's normal or not. I know you'll set my mind at ease. Wish you could help with medical problems too!
