Message from the Shop

At Southwest Auto, our passion is for cars and people. Volvo, Saab, Volkswagen, Audi, Mini Cooper, Mercedes, and BMW all have an undeniable character; one that creates an unmatchable driving experience.

These European cars are not about fluff or hype; the value is in the product. Owning one of these cars brings your daily driver into your heart and your family.

Just as you would seek the best possible medical care, your car deserves the same respect and attention. At Southwest Auto you get the best of both worlds, we know your car better than the dealer, and we know you by your first name.

We understand that extending the service life of your investment should be at the forefront of our efforts without it costing you a King's ransom. We would like the chance to show you how much we care about you and your vehicle.

The best service ever.

Verified CustomerOctober 15, 2014

I have been taking my car to Southwest Auto for the last 5 years because they fix things quickly & correctly. Treat me respectfully, and their prices are so much lower than the dealership. They don't ever try to scare me with too much information about what needs to be fixed. They stick to the point and are professional. I appreciate that.

They are very knowledgeable of Volvo models. I like the expertise of the technicians and honesty of owners and personnel.

Verified CustomerOctober 07, 2014

I asked the techs to look at the muffler because one inspector would not pass the vehicle for inspection because of a hole. The tech stated there was nothing wrong w the muffler. However, after I brought the vehicle home, I noticed that the entire muffler is hanging out of position and there is indication of damage. I will need to take the car in to be repaired for an item the Southwest could have repaired initially.

Verified CustomerOctober 01, 2014

I went to several repair shops and was never happy with the service or the repair, after finding Southwest Auto I will never go anywhere else .These people know what there doing and my car has not run this good for a very long time. They offer very good rates and timely work. Good communication.
