John Shanderuk, 
Owner

Welcome to Minneapolis Volvo and Saab Repair in Minneapolis, 
your Premier Auto Repair and Service Shop

A message from the owner...

Look... I could have hired some fancy schmancey ad guy to write this for me like every other web site you go to but it just wouldn't be from me! I know going to the auto repair shop and getting your car fixed can be like going to the dentist and getting a root canal (Ouch)!

But that's why we've made it painless and simple as possible.

I think Volvo and Saab Repair isn't like other auto repair shops. We've been serving Minneapolis, St. Paul and the Twin Cities Area since 1988. And our reputation has always been staked on being straight and honest with our customers.

That's why people call us the "Volvo and Saab Repair Specialists": With a proven track record of over 18,363 satisfied clients over the past 25 years. But don't take my word for it ... just click here and see what some of them have to say in their own words!

Jim O. from Apple Valley, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 7/13/2014:
"Courteous staff with knowledgeable explanations regarding mechanical problems to be solved. Reasonable costs."

Susan M. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 6/17/2014:
"Jason has great people and auto skills I delt with him thru process"

Brian B. from Nova Scotia, CA, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 5/4/2014:
"I received very professional, helpful and courteous service, right from when I called and spoke to Angie on the phone, to Jason taking my call, booking the appointment, getting parts in a timely manner and getting me in for the repair. I am traveling from Canada so the repair was critical and the extra repairs you did made sense to me. I appreciate that you went the extra step to do a general check on the safety of the vehicle. Both staff were very polite and pleasant. Great work!"

Noah L. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 2/2/2014:
"I had a great experience, from scheduling the appointment through the payment process. Everyone was super nice and attentive. I understood everything that was presented to me, and felt confident in their recommendations. They became my repair shop with one visit."

Asbjoern Sonne N. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 11/24/2013:
"Good service, competent, fair - probably not the cheapest for regularitet maintenance"

Martin M. from Minneapolis, MN, whose VOLVO was in for an auto repair service, on 11/17/2013:
"They work with you to resolve the issue in a professional way and alert you to repair costs."

Gina W. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 11/3/2013:
"Jason took excellent care of my car, he solved each problem presented to him and he gave me great advice regarding a repair done at another shop."

Sean B. from Wayzata, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 10/20/2013:
"My situation is a bit unique in that we've been struggling to resolve this issue for a year. That is clearly a ding again your shop but, at the same time, you have also been responsive and helpful in trying to solve this problem. So, quality of work is frankly a question mark at this point; customer service has been good. As an aside, with this particular problem, I would also say that the other two shops that have looked at this haven't faired much better, so I realize that this issue with my car has been unique."

Debbie B. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair, on 9/29/2013:
"Great service, great personality, and they keep you informed"

Mary H. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 8/12/2013:

James B. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 3/25/2013:
"Uptown Imports does a great job of providing maintenance on my Saab, and always does a thorough check of all major systems. They let me know what areas might need maintenance soon. It never feels like they're trying to oversell me on anything and I appreciate the fact that experts are taking a look at all major systems and making sure everything looks good."

Michele P. from Maplewood, MN, whose SAAB was in for an auto repair service, on 12/30/2012:
"I would highly recommend this service. The staff is not only knowledgeable, but seemed to be invigorated by the mystery my car presented. I really appreciated their willingness to stick with the problem until they found a solution. They were successful when 2 other shops failed to solve the problem. Prices seem reasonable."

Charlie L. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 9/30/2012:
"Smart, fair, and professional"

Gina W. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 8/26/2012:

Roger J. from Minneapolis, MN, whose VOLVO was in for an auto repair service, on 8/19/2012:

Vanessa B. from Saint Paul, MN, whose SAAB was in for an auto repair service, on 8/14/2012:
"They were very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. They gave me a great degree of confidence that they knew my car very well and knew how to fix it. My a/c has not been working since last summer and I've had it in to different places 4 times, with no luck. I finally decided to make the drive over to a place that really knows Saabs and it was so worth it. I should have started with Uptown Imports."

A.j. C. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 8/5/2012:

Scott W. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 7/23/2012:
"Fast service at fair prices."

Jim L. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 7/22/2012:
"Great personalized service from the entire staff. Owner actually greeted me by shaking my hand and he even knows the names of his customers. I actually was allowed to talk with a technician directly to help explain the issues I was having with my car. This all indicates to me they wanted a happy customer and they got one."

Todd E. from Saint Paul, MN, whose Saab was in for an auto repair service, on 6/10/2012:
"They know what they are doing"

William S. from Minneapolis, MN, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 1/23/2012:
"They communicate upfront and often, and literally show you the issues if detected (e.g., text message photos in real time on request). Most importantly, they truly know foreign autos. I've had people fumble around with my Volvo and not get the job done when they said they could. Uptown Imports gets the job done."
