I've been going to the Model Garage for more than 5 years and my partner has been going for over 20 years. Their team and work is fantastic!!!!! They are skilled, experienced, kind, patient, generous and funny. I bought a new, used car earlier this year and I called them A LOT for information and advice. They answered all my questions with patience and enthusiasm. They even called me when they found possible cars for me to buy on the internet. I trust them completely which is one of the most important factors in choosing auto mechanics. I am very strongly recommending them!

The Model Garage did a fabulous scheduling my car repair to fit my schedule. They are knowledgeable and helped me protect my car. I had the catalytic converter stolen from my 2007 Prius twice and feel so much safer now that it has the Cat Security protecting it.

Thank you Karen. We appreciate your trust and look forward to helping you in the future. Robert, Model Garage.

An addition to my "It had to happen" files: After several months of Covid lockdown, my Volvo felt "unloved," I had been avoiding regular checkups at Model Garage. I suppose the loneliness and lack of companionship with other Volvos got to my car. All sorts of warning lights went off, ABS, brake light, service light, the window would refuse to stay up and a general grumbling from deep within the hood. So I made the trek to Model well PPE'd. The hopes I had for an "affordable" workorder disappeared when Rob gleefully started by assuring me the wheel brake sensors were OK but the ABS unit had failed. That is a big hit to the bank account as any Volvo owner knows. He then said I had to perform the regular service for the service light to go off. By then the potential damage to the bank account was creeping up. Was there a choice? of course, he said. Except he could not predict when the ABS would give up the ghost completely and the brakes would lock up. The idea of showing up on the six o'clock news as the idiot who got stuck on some freeway or worse on a bridge. The mind boggles. I reluctantly agreed to the work order. It was odd he called me bright and early on the day of the work, surely that was too fast? Nope. He had further "good news." The battery was also going to the great recycler in the sky, timing unpredictable. I could visualize being double parked to get my takeout from my favorite Hunan restaurant, BTW why are all the parking spots in front of my favorite restaurants always full? Another big hit. Before he could find other stuff that needed fixing right away, I eventually agreed to the work. I hope I get some peace and quiet so my bank account recovers from this assault. However I was glad to have contributed my wee bit to the Model Garage Christmas fund...

Just the way it should be when having a vehicle serviced...call and make an appointment, take your vehicle there, discuss what work will be done, leave the vehicle, receive a message that your vehicle is ready, return, discuss what was done, discuss the vehicle's general condition (good and not so good), pay, drive home knowing you received good service at 20 to 40 percent less than the same work at a dealership. You will not receive coffee in a comfortable waiting room, but, I will buy my own coffee with the money that I save.
