Makes We Serve
I travel over 20 miles to get my car serviced at Mark's. It's worth the drive!
I'm new and thrilled to have a very trustworthy place now.
They are great!
Mark knows Volvo's, old or new he is skilled technician who gets the repair done.
Mark's bumper-to-bumper inspection of my 2005 Volvo S60 was comprehensive and thorough. The inspection report included photos of each problem so I had confidence that all of the recommended repairs were indeed factual. Mark finished the agreed upon work ahead of schedule and then he polished the foggy plastic headlamp lenses at no charge. My car was washed and clean when I arrived to drive it home. Mark and his entire team were knowledgeable, fixed years of neglect in a few hours, and my car with nearly 180,000 miles drives like new again.
Great service . Been a customer for years. I trust Mark completely!
Mark's is the best!
Excellent and trustworthy service. All my work was fully documented and price was fair. Would recommend to anyone who has a Volvo that needs work.
I have been a customer for over 30 years and have always found Mark's to be the truly professional service dealer that any conscientious car owner would seek. They earn the trust of their customers.
Always excellent service at a reasonable price.
I will remember to leave my owner's manual out for stamping the maintenance history.
Excellent repairs and service
Everyone was very nice and the work was done & delivered as promised. I plan on calling again when my Volvo's need service.
Very professional as always!
Mark has taken care of two Volvo's for me over the years. Always top-notch.
As always Mark and his team have gone above and beyond. They are the best!
Mark and Pepe will always keep your car in tip top shape. There work is second to NOBODY!
Very professional, no pressure, explained everything in terms I understood, showed me all old parts and why they needed to be replaced.
Unfortunately, the person who worked on my car installing a new fuel pump did not tighten it up and lots of oil leaked out
I've been using Marks for over 10-years now and have always had excellent service. My last service was a replacement part that they were able to install much sooner than my scheduled appointment to help me during a family emergency! They are awesome!!

We were a bit taken back to learn that it would cost $500 for the change of spark plugs and one coil.
Ron, I'm sorry that you feel our spark plug replacement cost was a little high. We back all of our repairs with a 2 year 24,000 mile parts and labor replacement warranty and used only OEM parts to ensure your vehicle was running in tip top shape for you and for your wife. We do appreciate doing business with you and look forward to future services with the both of you.
