Knowing I am retired and on a less than opulent budget, these Volvo mechanics find reusable parts and other economic measures for keeping the costs as low as possible while doing a safe job. And they are very accommodating so far as times are concerned. AND I've never had cause to question, let alone doubt, their judgment. Good folks.


You always do great work for me and I don't plan on going anywhere else for maintenance of my 2 Toyota vehicles.


Our family cars have been in the car of The Model Garage for fifteen years. They have been honest, fair and able make the best suggestions for our car budget triage.


Don and Peter and the crew have been taking care of our cars for 30 years and we have always been extremely happy with the service. In the old days, they still worked on Datsuns and we brought our Datsun to them. In 1991, we were looking for a truck and they suggested the Toyota truck. The old trucks didn't have model names or numbers--just "Toyota truck." Last December we took the truck to them for its final servicing--the repairs were too expensive to justify. Don and Peter didn't charge us for evaluating the truck even though they spent quite a bit of time on it. Three years ago we bought a Prius and Model Garage services it. Thanks for 30 years of consistently good car care--and you're pretty nice to people too!


Very personable woman who took my report, my car was done in record time with a reasonable bill.


Always good service and knowledge. Year after year!


HI folks-


So glad to have found such a great mechanic for my Toyota. I look forward to many more miles on it with great service and care to it.


Dear Friends,


Great experience with the team at Model Garage. I brought my Volvo in for service (service indicator lights on ). I was given an estimate and a time my car would be repaired. My car was repaired in the time promised and the customer service was GREAT! They saw a nail and a large staple in my tire and had it fixed!! I had a great first experience.
