The Model Garage is fabulous!

They know what they are doing, they tell you what they are doing, and they are nice, and efficient.

I needed a quick repair, and they were able to fit me in at the least minute. Very reasonable prices and friendly service. Will most definitely return in the future.

Model Garage is the BEST.

appreciate the solid recommendations on which repairs are necessary, which can be delayed and which aren't worth the bother

i completely trust these folks. they offer multiple options, and clearly aren't manipulating information for economic gain. they really feel like a personable, neighborhood mechanic of a bygone era, often replacing small parts for just the cost of the part.

and they try to offer lower cost alternatives to manufacturer's service schedule for certain services...and explain why they do so. and they charge less than volvo dealerships for their work, but i feel like they pay very close attention and care.

I am new to the Bay Area and Model Garage and they were great! Informative, helpful and honest. Because it is an older car, Robert said to watch the fluid levels and showed me where to look and how to track them. Everyone was friendly. Like a doctor caring about their patient, the mechanic asked about the repair history and she reported that my previous shop had used good quality materials, which was reassuring..It was a great experience all around.
