I was charged more than twice what I am normally charged with my regular mechanic, my oil was overfilled, and I was having brake issues for about a week or so after the appointment and had to take them to get realigned. I was offered a refund, but was told I had to come in to the shop to get it, which would not work for me since I do not live in the area. Also, the overdrive, which they said they fixed still doesn't work. Pretty much the worst experience I've ever had with a mechanic.
i own p1800 and took it to bruce due to his longtime rep in berkeley plus he has a reputation with p1800s. it was a big mistake
the car ran rough with hesitant acceleration. after $2400 the problem is not mixed and his mechanic concludes he is lost and cannot figure out the problem. bruce suggests that i take the car to other volvo mechanics. this is not a great confidence builder.
the parts that were changed were priced extremely high. i later find out he marks up the part nearly double from what i could get it for on the street.
if you go to bruce with your car, you might want to source your own part.
I've been going to Ackerman's Volvo service for about ten years now. The crew at Ackerman's is amazing! Bruce gives 5% to my daughters school, part of there giving back to the community program. And on top of that I am able to use my AAA card for a 10% off discount as well. I will always go to Ackerman's for all my Volvo needs!
