I brought in the Volvo S40 due to a check engine light which was correctly diagnosed and given the price of $1086 to repair. Then came the normal auto mechanic diagnosis of several recommendations for repairs needed or suggestions. Which would have been another 700 to 800. That seemed to real high for check engine repair, so I called the local Volvo dealer to get a quote for the same repair and found out I could go to dealer and save myself 500 to 600 by going there. Originally it was nice to find someone certified to work make the repairs on my vehicle and save money by not going to a dealer. Never again will that belief be followed and never again with will I use Shade tree automotive for repairs. Definitely, recommend a review of your pricing guide. Good mechanics, but very over priced.
