We've been going to Dave Scholl for almost 20 years - he's the main reason we keep buying Volvos!
One reason I bought a Volvo is that I knew I could take it here for service. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
After a prominent local shop took three days to give me a quote well north of $1000 to fix my Dodge's turn signal problem, together with a bill for $150 for the "inspection," plus a load of BS, I went to Dave. To be fair, the BS was free.
Dave fixed the problem in 30 minutes for $150-. No BS.
I'll be going to Dave from now on.
My family has take our Volvo's to Dave for 20+ years. He is a great mechanic with fair prices. Santa Barbara is lucky to have Dave!
I was sold on Dave after 1 visit. He does great work at reasonable price. I highly recommend him!
