Swedemasters is an absolute gem. I had just moved to Santa Barbara from Portland, Oregon all on my own to begin my PhD work at UCSB, and after a great deal of driving my Mini overheated. I had my car towed to Haik's German Autohaus based on some seeming good Google reviews, and ended up being charged $330 basically just to tell me that the coolant was leaking, oil was low, and it was going to cost another $300 or so to see if there was severe engine damage - not to repair anything as of yet. So, I decided to call Swedemasters for a second opinion. I spoke with Karen, who was very patient, knowledgeable, and helpful, and I decided to have my car towed to them. They were upfront with the basic diagnosis cost, which was already much less than the initial $280 estimate I received with vague reasoning from the other mechanic. Swedemasters kept me updated through the process and within a few days my car was up and running again. In the end, my engine was ok, my car wasn't hopeless as the other mechanic had told me repeatedly, and my final bill (including the diagnosis) was under $1,000. Oh, and just when I thought they were lifesavers already, I received a call from Karen at Swedemasters a day later saying they realized they accidentally charged me for a small part that didn't end up needing to be replaced, so they wanted to refund my account. This kind of honesty is rare to find and so greatly appreciated. I hope my account conveys the true value and integrity of this wonderful shop. I am so very grateful for their work, and I incredibly glad I found a local mechanic that I can truly trust.

Swedemasters came through again! My Volvo was rough and noisy, and I feared the worst (for my 17-year-old car). Karen got me in the same day I called, and they determined that a top engine mount was the culprit. As soon as they got the parts on the next day (even during the Thomas Fire delayed transportation), Karen called me in the morning and Tim's crew got the work done (including new headlight) before 2pm. Car drives like it's new now. Thank you, Tim, mechanics, and your new Office Manager Karen!

As always, Tim and crew are outstanding. Tim knows Volvos better than anyone I have seen before. I also appreciate that Tim is willing to explain and work with the "must repairs" vs "could repairs". Thank you.

Always a good experience. Gentle reminders when I need to get in for service... timely turn around on all maintenance preformed over the last 3yrs Ive been taking my XC-90~ Thank you for setting the bar high and being consistent.
