Our Story

Dear Volvo owners

Swedish Motors has been in business since 1974. Lately, we’ve realized that many folks in the Boulder, CO area don’t even know that we can work on their newer Volvos, and we want to change that. Having us perform a regularly scheduled service will not void your factory warranty. We cannot however take care of warranty problems. Only a Volvo dealer can do that.

What we do

We provide a full range of Volvo repair and service ranging from regular mechanical maintenance to troubleshooting. We perform alignments here at the shop and we install, balance and rotate tires, too. Everything we do is warrantied, both new parts and labor, for two full years. Often we can save you money by installing used parts where appropriate (these used parts usually aren’t warrantied, though, and there may be additional labor costs).

We provide many services including engine repair, transmission repair, electrical repair, brake repair, tune-ups, oil changes and factory recommended scheduled maintenance services, just to name a few.

What we don’t do

We don’t perform body work. We don’t work on diesel engines, but feel free to call us and ask us where you can get this work performed around the Boulder, CO area.

The Swedish story

David, the owner, was a helicopter mechanic in Vietnam. Soon after returning to the U.S., David’s love for fixing things evolved into running a full time Volvo repair shop. His emphasis has always been on maintaining excellent communication with the customer so they understand the problem and options for fixing their car. He is always willing to impart his experience to the do-it-yourselfer. Customers are treated like friends and are allowed in the work area to talk to the technicians. We want our customers to understand the repairs on their vehicles and we won’t talk gibberish or “over your head.”

The Swedish Motors Crew

When you first walk into Swedish Motors, you are likely to be greeted by our smiling and helpful Front Desk crew: Chris M, our Service Manager, Lili, our Parts Manager, and Sophie, our Office Manager. Performing the work on your vehicle is our skilled team of technicians, Bradley, our Shop Foreman, Dusty, our 240 Specialist, and Chris G. Each of our knowledgeable technicians take pride in the excellent work and care of your Volvo.

The bottom line

We like to help people in any way we can. Your satisfaction with your experience here is top priority. As an incentive for you to give us a try, we offer specials including a free oil and filter change coupon to all new customers.

Hope this is the start of a great relationship,

David McClintock, Owner
