From our beginning in 1975, we exclusively serviced and sold Saabs and Volvos until welcoming MINI to our family of special cars in 2010. Scandinavian was founded by a dealership mechanic on the belief that both the owners of specialized European cars and those who work to service them were yearning for an alternative to the traditional dealership. New car dealers and others calling themselves specialists have come and gone, but we remain above the crowd of instant experts as the oldest and largest independent Saab and Volvo sales and service facility in metropolitan Washington.
Volvo, MINI, and Saab manufacture sophisticated machines providing superior safety, value, fuel economy and comfort. Nearly all cars today require unique factory proprietary software to perform a wide array of repairs and service procedures. We commit the large amount of money and time required to have up to the minute factory software and special tools. No other local independent sales and service company equals our long-term investment in providing the highest level of technical resources and product knowledge. This enables us to expertly maintain every client's Volvo, MINI, and Saab, and to handpick and prepare premium used ones.
The outcome is the best of both worlds: our sales and service clients experience factory level technical support and a straight-talking personal relationship that is based on value, truth and fairness. Scandinavian is free of inflated dealer price schedules and sales quota driven pressure tactics. Whether you're coming from Rockville or Bethesda, Washington DC or Northern Virgina, your Saab, Volvo or Mini Cooper will be in good hands

Came in with engine light on BMW 528 and quickly worked me in and fixed problem in same day. Also provided rental car
First time visit, several problems with my 2008 535xi BMW. All were diagnosed and repaired quickly. Provided recommendation to watch two items for future service requirement. Very pleased with my experience.
As always, my experience at Scandinavian Import Service was wonderful. I had expected an expensive major repair on my 2006 Saab, but the technicians worked their magic to find an alternate solution. Thank you.
My experience has been great overall. I described my problems thoroughly and they were able to address everything in a timely manner. They also provided me with an update as to what was going on with the car so I understood what was going on before they did the work. Would definitely trust them to do all my work with no second guesses.
Dr. Ghazai is the best dentist I ever have. She is perfect in her work. she explains everything very well. She is so nice, caring, and works so carefully. I didn't even have any pain and discomfort while having a big cavity filling in my tooth. She sure does has a lovely personality.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Ghazai to anyone who is looking for a best dentist in the area.
Dr. Ghazia Thank you so much for your best work and kindness.
