I've been a Popular Mechanix customer for about two and a half years. I've owned my 2003 Volvo S40 since 2004, and had it serviced first by two authorized Volvo dealership maintenance shops in Santa Monica, and then a dedicated Volvo shop here in San Francisco that has gone out of business. Service at the SoCal shops ranged from OK to awful -- all the usual dreary disappointments that happen to us sometimes. When I came upon the Popular Mechanix website I suspected this is a business that operates on a high level, and that's turned out to be true. I've had my S40 serviced at PM about eight times now, and PM's team of smart, savvy and experienced mechanics has always been able to resolve whatever problems brought me in -- one of them a hard-to-locate electrical wiring malfunction, a consequence of the car's age. Now fixed perfectly. At 145,000 miles my car's beginning to show its age mechanically, but PM keeps it running at top form, which offers peace of mind -- knowing PM's diagnostic expertise minimizes the odds I'll end up on a roadside, calling AAA. PM is not a low-cost operation, but neither is it a price gouger, as the two Volvo dealership shops I patronized in Southern California were, If you want top-quality Volvo service, Popular Mechanix is for you.
