Friendly. Honest. Knowledgeable. Only place I will take my Volvo.
Very disappointed that I couldn't make friends with the big Mastiff! Guess I was too big and noisy. Bringing Scooby snacks the next time. ;-) As far as the work goes, it was excellent! They kept me informed, did great work, informed me of additional service I will need and value was perfect! Will be going back!
Excellent service, no bull. I have a decent understanding of cars, but these guys know their stuff. No pushy sales, Chris was looking out for my wallet. I'll continue to bring my Volvo here for any service I can't do myself. Thanks for the professionalism and respect, it was a pleasure.
This place has excellent customer service and do excellent job.
Got a pre purchase inspection here for an '05 Volvo V70R. I'm from out of state so everything was arranged over the phone. Everything went smoothly and at no point did I ever feel uneasy. I was so pleased with the quality of service that I made a stop at Eastside Swedish after buying my car to thank them. I actually wish I lived in Portland since then I could have my Volvo serviced here regularly. Great garage who know and appreciate Volvos! Would Highly Recommend!
So far the best Volvo shop around. I've been looking for a reliable, honest mechanic for years. Finally found them. Chris and everyone else who work in the shop do a fantastic work and go out of there way to help you out! All for a good price too! Thanks guys!
The very best repair shop ever -- Chris and his guys have always been so professional, honest and take such great care of my car -have bought two cars from him (first one from Jim and Rita) and totally happy with both - Thanks Chris and Don for many years of fantastic service -
I have been going to Eastside for years, they are my go to place for all my Subaru needs. More professional than the Subaru dealership, at much better rates!
Eastside Swedish Motors is Great!
Chris is honest, ethical, kind, and straight-forward. I am a confident (and long-proud) Volvo owner who is so thankful to have a reliable mechanic on this side of town who treats me, and my beloved car, with respect and professionalism. I've had a host of repairs and updates to my car and have been pleased by every experience. Pricing is fair and Chris goes above and beyond to assure a great customer experience. I highly recommend Eastside Swedish to anyone wanting consistent and dependable service for their Volvo. Thank you, Eastside! :)
Having Chris and the crew available to help with my 14 year old Volvo has always been a very positive experience. I am sooo glad they are here on the eastside. Very professional and reasonably priced. Best auto shop I've ever dealt with.
I have never left an auto shop feeling happier about the price paid for the services provided than when I left Eastside Swedish Motors today. Chris was extremely helpful, explaining prices and services and recommending priorities until I felt I completely understood what work would be done. Today's experience makes me feel excited to be a Volvo owner on the east side. Thank you so much!
I have been doing business here since the shop opened 30+ years ago (originally on Division Street). I have purchased several cars from them (Jim and then Chris) and they have serviced all of our Volvo vehicles (and we have lots, including 1800, 244/245, 850, V70, Crosscountry, C70)since then. Chris and Don are terrific people and great mechanics. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for good and honest service at a fair price. If it weren't for these two fellows, I would be driving a Fords (or some other make of car). Honest, fair and quality work.
Trustworthy and great service. Been going here for years now.
Chris at Eastside Swedish Motors is fantastic. I always take my car and PU into him for oil changes, etc because I do believe in him to be fair about what is needed. I would recommend him very highly Gloria Smith
This is hands down one of the best shops I have had any of my cars serviced at. Chris is kind, knowledgeable and fair always. I leave with a smile and the confidence that the work performed on my car (97 Volvo 850R) is done right and done to the highest possible quality. I will be giving Eastside Swedish Motors my business for as long as I own my Volvo and proud to!! Thank you Chris and your crew that always make it happen:)
Chris and Eastside Swedish Motors are the best! I have been using their services to care my for my Volvo since 2005 (perhaps it is even earlier!). I have found Eastside to always be reliable, trustworthy, and thrifty with my car repair dollars. If there is a problem, they have ALWAYS made it right. I personally drive about 45 minutes each way to get there and am delighted to do so. If you have a Volvo, I would strongly recommend you let them care for your car - they are certainly worth making an effort to use.
Have been very pleased with Chris the owner on his customer skills, he takes the time no matter how busy he is to explain the problem and options to approach it. Don the mechanic impressed me with his knowledge and experience, a good mechanic will save you money in the long run. I have a PVC system replacement coming up and I can't think of anybody I'd rather have do it then these guys.
Great service, honest people, and good prices. They have done repairs for us several times on our Subies, and will in the future!
