Can anyone here recommend an honest and knowledgeable shop/mechanic for Volvos in the area roughly bounded by/around Albany, Lake Placid and Burlington VT?<p>Thanks!

Re: mechanic in northern NY?? (Broadwinged)

Well, in the Albany area you have Precision Volvo and Larry's, both of which I have experience with and they do great work, but that's pretty far from you. <p>Hopefully someone will post from your neck of the woods.

Re: mechanic in northern NY?? (Wayne T5)

wheeeewww i thought you were saying precision automotive in endicott NY. i went there. imagine getting boned by dealer prices but with second rate work its redic. i had my check valve for my SAS replaced and 6 hours of pointless diagnostics... 600$ and the CEL was still on. they are useless in everything they do. ive died looking around locally for a nice volvo indy. maybe ill take the 4 hour drive for a legit checkup at that place

My son has had service on his T5 in Burlington. It sounds like his mechanic is knowledgeable and pretty fair. I'll ask for details and post. There are quite a few V-Vos in that town and a number of folks that work on them.<br>A friend of his has had some lousy luck in Placid.......careful there.

Re: mechanic in northern NY?? (mgc)

Thanks Wayne T5 and mgc...these are helpful suggestions. I'm assuming I'll have to some driving to find the right mechanic.<p>Look forward to hearing the Burlington option...a bit closer.<p>Thanks.
