My daughter is moving to the Fairfax area and taking my 1994 850 Turbo Wagon with her. Can anyone provide one or more names of good mechanics in the area who work on cars of that vintage? Thanks.

Googling shows about five Volvo indies in the area but none with sparkling reviews.

Her fresh credit card would be welcomed here...

...and they have "vintage" 850 parts sources (OE ABS controller = $1,150) plus all work and parts are warranted.

Nearby one finds a single entity with a decent rating...

...but still not perfect...

Your daughter's Volvo 850 can be a repair tech's nightmare unless the shop has all the correct Volvo-only diagnostic tools.

Here is an older forum discussion about VA-area indies...

My take would be to use the local Volvo dealer and accept the high price/mediocre service in exchange for a service loaner and garantee on all parts and work.

Below are three more links from Swedespeed on the subject.
