"This shop was recommended by a friend who has used them for many years and was very satisfied with their knowledge and honesty. Took the Volvo in for a shifting problem, I spoke with Carl over the phone regarding the issue and discussed the error codes with him so I could get a sense of what this repair might cost. I took it in and it was repaired promptly and runs great. It should be noted that another mechanic at another shop had misdiagnosed the problem and quoted me $1200 more than Nordic motors. Fortunately I went to Nordic saved money and it's fixed. Thanks Carl.quot;
"As usual, Nordic motors always gets to the root cause of the problem and gets the job done right in a reasonable amount of time. Have serviced all 5 of my Volvos here for many years now and won't go anywhere else because I trust and value the service they provide."

"So glad I found Carl and Nordic Motors! Carl is an amazing guy - it's hard to believe such a "real" and cool guy actually owns and runs an autoshop.
I have a Saab - and it's incredibly difficult to find a good shop for it these days. I called everywhere within a 30 mile range and finally found these guys. It's a hike from Santa Clara - but well worth it.
Carl changed the oil and gave it the overall inspection. I had done my research, and had a long list of stuff for him to check including what I thought was a drive belt. Turns out it's called the serpentene belt, and it should have been changed at 60,000 miles and no one else had mentioned - I had him change it. He replaced a cap in the engine that he found was broken, and ordered another cap for me that was broken. New wipers, topped all fluids. Plus had him program and new key. He didn't try to sell me a bunch of stuff I didn't really need. The price was very reasonable compared to the places I'd been taking it before.
Thank you Carl and Nordic Motors for a pleasant autoshop experience!"
