Re: Non-dealer Mechanic for Volvo
I recommend Walsh Brothers on Harrison (near Gilman) in
Berkeley. They've been working on Volvos for decades and
they are extremely honest and reasonable.
Re: Volvo mechanic for ELECTRICAL system
I highly recommend Walsh Bros. Volvo Repair, near Gilman and San
Pablo in N. Berkeley (510) 525-3302. Jon, the owner, is very
honest, gives explanations with whatever level of detail you need,
and does a great job. They specialize in Volvos, but also repair
other types of cars... they got certified to repair Toyota Prius a
few years back and we take our Prius to Jon as well. These are
Re: Repairs for old Volvo station wagon
Five years ago, we switched very
happily to Walsh Brothers in Berkeley, based on recommendations
here, and other write-ups. They are friendly, competent, have
so far been affordable . . . and, I think importantly, they
only work on Volvos, which they know and love.
Re: Good Volvo mechanic in Berkeley
A great Volvo shop is Walsh Brothers in Berkeley at 1060
Harrison (off San Pablo near Gilman). Telephone: 525-3300.
They have serviced my 1998 V70 for years and always give me a
very clear explanation of what is needed, when it needs to be
done in the maintenance schedule, and fair and reasonable
I've been to other Volvo mechanics and found them
uncommunicative and sometimes offended and arrogant when I
question them on the urgency of the work.
Re: Good Volvo mechanic in Berkeley (April 2007)
I had a Volvo for many years (not currently) and found the Walsh
Brothers to be really fine mechanics (I had used others but
stayed with them once I found them)..... They are on Harrison St
near San Pablo/Gilman Street in north Berkeley. They are smart,
honest, and get the job done well.
Re: Tuneup for a Volvo (June 2006)
Walsh Brothers in Berkeley (near San Pablo/Gilman) - I've been taking my Volvo to them for years
and completely trust them.
Re: Mechanic to assess used Volvo (Nov 2003)
Try Walsh Bros at 1060 Harrison in Berkeley. 525-3300.
I've taken my Volvo to them for almost 20 years. They're really nice, totally
honest, and good mechanics. They're probably not the cheapest, but they're
definitely cheaper than a dealer.
[After a negative experience with another shop,]
I am now a very satisfied customer of Walsh Brothers on Harrison
Street in Berkeley (off of San Pablo Ave). They are very honest
and always provide me with different options/solutions so that
can try to save money on my very old (1982) car. I have no
complaints about their work and feel that they are very customer
service oriented. As a woman, I am quite comfortable dealing with
them and never feel like they take advantage of the fact that I don't
have any knowlege regarding car maintenance.
We use Walsh Brothers off of Gilman near REI in
Berkeley and love them. The number is 510.525.3300. Elissa
For those searching for wonderful Volvo mechanics, I highly recommend
Brothers in Berkeley. My family and I have been taking our various
there for several years and have always been extremely satisfied with
their work and their friendly attitude. They are located at 1060
St. in Berkeley (just below San Pablo between Gilman and Marin and
the corner from McDonalds). Their phone number is 525-3300.
recommendation: Volvo mechanic: I highly recommend Walsh Bros., 1060
Harrison, Berkeley, 525-3300. Jon (owner) has been taking care of my 1980
Volvo for over 252,000 miles, and my husband's rebuilt (by Jon) 1972 engine
for almost 250,000 miles. Jon is personable, trustworthy, and has kept our
family on the road for almost 20 years.
