There isnt much I will miss from NJ when we relocate to Raleigh...however I will miss my Volvo guy...he works his own business but was a Volvo specialist at a Volvo dealer for many yrs. So anyone know of an independently run volvo repair shop who is honest and fairly priced?

I had good experiences with West German Garage back when I had my Volvo (yes, they service non-German cars).

My 850 only goes to Import Auto Pro in Wake Forest. Rodney is the best. Depending on the age I did happen to catch a glimpse of a garage down Capital near downtown that had 3 240's parked out front. Not sure what

Also I buy parts from Weaver Bros (dealership) and have had them do a few things. They are quite competitive as far as dealers are concerned. I've always been pleased.

Second Harrison's. They've always been honest with us on service for our 850.

Also have heard good things about PA Smith.

Thankyou all for the fine responses...I own a'97 850 T-5 Wagon...its a great car and tough too. Volvos are the only cars I've ever owned since 1990..and none of them are newer than '97 when Volvo still owned Volvo...LOL I'll be sure to make a note of these places.

We need to start a Volvo club get together here I work on my 850 myself, but its more fun with others .

I'm always looking for a mint 850 or 98-00 S70 (SILVER of course) but they are hard to come by here in Raleigh.

In retrospect Harrisons was the place I saw on Capital. Any place that works on 240's is good enough to work on my 850 - I'll be going there next if I get into something I can't handle or need advice on.

P and A Smith in Cary was where the lead-footed wife took her turbo charged 850. They do Lexus's now too.

Great bunch of chaps.

Hey I'd be up for that...I'm no mechanic but I would like to do the simple maintainence stuff... The guy I have here has 30 years of experience on Volvos' and he loves the 240s' best of all. Their simple straightforward design makes them easy and inexpensive to work on. I've had an '89 240 Wagon and a '90 240 sedan and they have lasted for a long time...I got the 850 because i wanted real A/C and more comfortable interior than the 240's had...getting older has made me want more creature comforts...LOL
