Swedish Import Service - Volvo and Saab Specialists Complaint - Just say NO to the dealer
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA -- I have my '00 XC/70 serviced at Swedish Import Service in Fairfax, which is an independent shop that does nothing but Volvo and Saab.
Recently, I had to go to the dealer with regards to a factory recall on the Electronic Throttle System, which is nothing more than flashing the computer with updated software.
When I went to pick the car up, I was handed an invoice that said NO CHARGE for the flash upgrade. However, there was a long list of "things that need immediate attention", according to the dealer. The list of repairs would have been around $2000, had I let them do the work.
Funny, because my car had just been given a thorough look over by my mechanic, and I knew that it didn't need any of the work mentioned.
Buyer beware when going to the dealership !!!
