      Looking for Good Independent Volvo shop in Eastern Pa (2004 V70R)

      I am looking for a good independent Volvo shop to work on my 2004 V70R. I usually do my own work but just don't have the time. I am located in the Doylestown area. I have used the local dealer Keystone but have had way too many issues with the quality of the service and their rate is unreal for the lousy work. Too many loose bolts and other issues that I have had to deal with. There is Joe Davis Autosport in Perkasie, but they will not install parts that I already own. I have quite a few service parts and parts from IPD that I wan't installed.

      Anyone have some suggestions.

      Thanks

      A bit of a drive for you but Integrity near Ephrata has done a good job for me one on a motor mount replacement; didn't rape me on the mount and installed my purchased-via-SS bottom shield.

      Might be slightly far for you, but I have used Wolfe Automotive in Malvern before, and got good results.

      Check European Motors near Reading, Pa. Low key, clean, family business.

      If up for a drive, I'd highly recommend Mike Sachs at MAS Imports on 222N in Fleetwood PA (30 min south of Allentown), across from Susquehanna Motorsports (rallylights.com),. He's well tied in with the local race guys (BMR SCCA, who run the Reading hill climb events, among others) and has been working on all makes of Euro cars for 20+ years (ranging from Lotus to Porsche, you name it). Reasonable rates and top notch service.

      Looking for Good Independent Volvo shop in Eastern Pa (2004 V70R)

      My family bought a Volvo from Wynn and didn't like the service there. We ended up trying Keystone because they were a big dealer and they were horrible too. It's surprising because they have good reviews. I ended up going to Stillman Volvo in West Chester and have been blown away by their customer service. They're honest and their prices are reasonable. My family has owned bmw, Mercedes, lexus, infiniti and none of their service matches to what Stillman offers. We have bought 3 Volvos from Stillman since we started getting our cars serviced there. It's Stillman Volvo for life for me and my family!
