One of the most pleasant and friendly car service shops I've ever experienced. Honest estimates. Good people. And the bird aviary was an unexpected relaxing experience for a rep[air facility.

As always the service was excellent and I was treated in a courteous and professional manner.

Andy, Ruth and the mechanics are an expert team. I can't imagine a more professional and earnest repair shop. Highly recommended. I'll be a lifetime customer.

I brought in my car with a difficult problem to determine, which PM expertly proceeded to fix. In arriving at that solution, PM came across several other repairs that after being fixed allows me to drive out of the garage and confidently "Drive to New York." They are professional, systematic in approach, able to handle the unexpected tow-in.

I've been bringing cars to Andy and his team for more than two years and they have been unfailingly helpful, thorough and honest. If you own a Volvo, there is no other place to bring your car.

Great service and car runs great (and detail looks great)! A few things to note... after consulting with a dealership, the service price Quoted had started as $540, double that of a dealership, with a software upgrade an additional $352 (free with service elsewhere). Fortunately, Ruth was willing to get the actual cost of 90K mi service to $360 (compared to dealership $289) and include the tire rotation to try and come close to match the dealer quote. Overall great service by Sam, and thank you for the walk through. Will be back if prices can match close to that of the dealerships, which already can run notoriously expensive. Hope to see you guys soon!

They explain the work with patience, the estimate was accurate, and they completed the work by close of business. Their attention to detail and personal service is rare. The experience was much calmer than the impersonal, hustle and bustle "get em in get em out' rushed service at the dealer. Plus they provided a loaner and the car was beautifully detailed when I went to pick it up!

My 1985 Volvo DL gets the best care here! The mechanics actually like to work on my car and have often replaced little parts and bits as they wear out, and they don't push me to work on something that can wait. But they will let me know when and why something needs doing - they are all about safety! Friendly service and the parakeet aviary is a sure sign of their commitment to the environment!

I have been a customer for a year. As I drive s 20 year old 960 Volvo I want to keep my car in top running condition. What I like is Andrew notes what prevention services needs to be done on my car. I have two more services that needs to be done and I feel comfortable that I am safe and my car is reliable. Since moving to the city and parking my car on the streets of San Francisco I am happy to be driving my 21 year old car with 119K mileage. I only put in 6K in miles every year '

I have been using Popular Mechanix for more than 20 years to keep a 1984 Volvo in perfect condition. They have never failed me, I can always trust them to do what needs to be done, but never to suggest unnecessary work. I know my car will always be safe in their hands. AS an added bonus it has been washed when I get it back

Every time I visit Dr. Langille, I want to invite her out for cocktails and dinner immediately after the appointment so we can continue our silliness and chatter. She is such a sweet, fun, nurturing, interesting, caring person. She's a fabulous listener and really good at figuring out a solution to whatever problems you bring her way. Dr. Langille takes her time with you to make sure she gets it right (and that you're happy). She's the best.
