Have been dealing with ABFA since 2000. Have purchased and serviced 6 different Volvos during that time period. I frequently recommend to others.

by - Verified Customer December 02, 2014

Alan Byer has the BEST service I have ever received anywhere. I have owned many cars in my lifetime and in the last 14 years have owned different Volvos purchased from Alan Byer and can honestly say that I would not purchase a car anywhere else. Alan Byer's honesty, service, and dedication to treating all customers as "family" make them number one. I have recommended Alan Byer to people and know of at least two people who have purchased their vehicle from them with the greatest of satisfaction.

by - Verified Customer September 25, 2014

The quote I was given for a repair and used part was inflated more than $1000 over the actual cost of the part. They claimed it was to warranty the part. But the actual part supplier already gave the same warranty with the original cost of the used part.

Friendly & reliable service.
