Message from the Shop

We specialize in comprehensive service of VOLVO, SUBARU, BMW, AUDI, VW, MINI, SAAB, JAGUAR, LAND ROVER, HONDA, TOYOTA, LEXUS, NISSAN and ACURA as well as other Asian cars. We have invested in extensive on-line and computer-based data systems to make sure we have the latest information on each car we service. We have continuously upgraded our diagnostic tools as cars have become more dependent on electronic controls. We can repair all systems on imports, from oil changes, brakes, mufflers, suspension, tuning, maintenance services to complex electronics and electrical diagnosis.

They are good, quick and reliable. They are predictable.

I really like the prompt friendly service I receive at Whitedog and it is a good place to take a specific car like mine, which is a Subaru. They have kind of a cool hip style with their styling and overall brand. Well, their logo is their brand. A white German shepherd dog and I had German shepherd dogs growing up so that kind of biases me right there. I just like dogs and they have a neat logo on their cards, in their offices etc. I know one of the people in the shop and he does stuff in the community also.

Most of the time we get good service. Sometimes Volvo does not recognize them as a Volvo dealer and they cannot get the parts.
