I tell all of my friends how wonderful this shop is! The crew at Volvo Specialists has been taking care of my 4 Volvo's and my Chevrolet pickup for years now. They are always, courteous, timely, fairly priced and best of all they fix my cars right the first time. Again, I tell EVERYONE to go see them, you will not find this kind of dedication in the DMV.

I have been taking my cars to Volvo Specialists for about a year now. I love them, the fix my Volvo along with my Honda and Ford. I have always felt like I was in good hands since the first time I walked in. I would recommend them to anyone!

Volvo Specialists has been servicing my Volvos since about 1985, nearly 30 years now; first a 240 sedan, then a 740 wagon, now a V70 with 200,000 miles, and a sprightly C30.

Brad worked as a mechanic for the previous owner for some years before acquiring the business. I was surprised to be reminded that Brad only acquired the business in 2005; it seems like he has been in charge there forever!

I keep coming back for the obvious reason that Brad is an experienced, competent Volvo mechanic, but probably more so because I have always found Brad to be open, direct and clear about explaining what is wrong with my car and what are my options for repairing it. This type of honesty is notoriously lacking in the car repair business, where the balance of knowledge is usually heavily in favor of the mechanic, leaving the owner at a disadvantage.

It is Brads policy to stay ahead of problems, so every visit includes a test drive and a heads-up about any lurking problems, some needing immediate attention but more likely needing mindful watching before they materialize full blown.

In recent years Brad has added Moe and Larissa to his staff, both experienced and knowledgeable Volvo mechanics. Larissa comes from a Volvo family, both her husband and her father being Volvo mechanics. This gives her cachet in the local Volvo world, opening the door to networking with other experts to solve unusual or persistent problems. I believe this is a great advantage with the often quirky Volvo.

I have given Brad and the crew permission to release my name and phone number in case youd like to verify that I am a real customer and not a shill; feel free to call for more details of my experience with Volvo Specialists.

I plan to post this same Letter of Recommendation on other sites, e.g., Insider Pages, Angies List, so dont be surprised to see it again if you are thoroughly searching for a reliable Volvo mechanic.

They are fantastic. Brad, Larisa and the rest are a pleasure to deal with. They are honest, fair, knowledgeable and will assist you in everything automotive. My mother used them for years and when we got a Volvo we started 4 years ago. We now bring all our autos (2 Toyota's and a Nissan). A good honest mechanic is worth their weight in gold and can work on any car.

Visit their shop you will be happy.

I have been taking our Volvos to Volvo Specialists since 1978 when they were located in Bethesda. I bought my first Volvo from them in 1978 for $1500 and drove it for 5 years. It was a very clean car with low mileage. Ever since, I have been their customer with my Volvo and my three children's Volvo's for 33 years. (My wife thinks Mercedes are better but she is wrong. (again!)) I have all of the Volvos serviced with Brad and even buy used Volvos from him if the need arises.Now in Rockville, Brad, Larisa & Company always explain my options, the costs and why a repair is needed. They have always stood behind their repairs if there has been any problem. I have found that because they specialize in Volvos, they are prepared with anything that might arise. I think you get a much better value here than the dealer. Very convenient to Rockville Metro also.

5 stars I have dealt with Volvo Specialists for about 10 years now and I can't begin to list all the times when they have "been there" for me and my family. Brad is not only an expert technician, but an honest and decent man. He and his staff are just professional and knowledgeable. There have been times when I really could not financially afford to do what needed to be done and Brad always found a way to make it work out. Never has he steered me wrong.(pun intended). If you want the RIGHT answer, go there but be prepared for the truth, no matter how much it hurts. (haha).5 stars

They are great! I would reccomend anyone to go there. They will work on any make and model. Brad (the owner) Larisa (their tech) and Nghiem are all fantastic to work with. They have been honest with me and I dont feel like I am getting raped, like I have at other shops. When my car wouldnt start, they went the least expencive route first to try and save me money. They are friendly and have fair pricing.

We haven't been in the are very long, our last trusted mechanic died suddenly and we had no clue where to go. We were very lucky to meet Brad outside of "the business", but quickly found that here was an honest, straight-forward businessman/mechanic that we have complete trust in. If you need work done or an honest opinion of your vehicle's problems - this is the place to go. BUT - it's a tie - trust AND great service/quality.

Owner Brad Walsh can quickly analyze you problems with his 30 years of experience as a master automotive technician.

American cars, foreign cars, classics, hot rods.

Can't afford everything at once ? Brad will tell you what you need and what can wait. I have been very happy about the quality and cost of Brad's work. Straight shooters.

Family environment.

I heard about the shop from a friend who swore the owner was very honest and charged very fair prices. I just stopped in to take a look and met the owner Brad. He was very nice and looked my car over and even replaced a brake light for me I didn't know was out. He wouldn't take any $. I came back and had a service and work done for a very fair price. My car drives like new! I will definitely be a long term customer.
