If anyone can recommend a good Volvo mechanic in in the Northern VA area ( Fairfax , Vienna) I would greatly appreciate it. Dealer service gives me the impression that the free coffee in the customer lounge costs me a couple hundred bucks a cup.
Re: Good Volvo mechanic in Northern VA.... (lax01)
I use Martens Volvo on River Road in Bethesda. If you are in Vienna, it's just across the American Legion Bridge for you. I used to say the same thing about cost, but after dealing with these guys for a few years, I am willing to pay more to get it done right the FIRST time than have to come back two or three times to save a coupla hundred bucks. For me, the frustration outweighed the savings.
The courtesy shuttle to the Metro is more expensive than the coffee, though.
