I took my 99 Grand Prix to Mike for some general maintenance, and to have him look at a problem that had completely stumped two other shops (it was a problem that was keeping my car from passing the MD emissions inspection). Mike accurately diagnosed the emissions problem within an hour.The repair turned out to be more involved that expected, but Mike kept me informed throughout the repair, making my options, likely outcomes, and costs very clear (he even did price comparisons on an expensive part, and saved me around $100). The end result was like getting a new car.Mike also let me know what I should be planning for in terms of ongoing maintenance, along with very reasonable cost estimates. No hard sales pitch, either, just competent and professional care.Mike's attention to detail, thoroughness, and exceptional customer service make him tops in my book...I recommend him without reservation.

I tell all of my friends how wonderful this shop is! The crew at Volvo Specialists has been taking care of my 4 Volvo's and my Chevrolet pickup for years now. They are always, courteous, timely, fairly priced and best of all they fix my cars right the first time. Again, I tell EVERYONE to go see them, you will not find this kind of dedication in the DMV.

I had a stripped oil plug and these guys were amazing. They went over all my options and explained everything to me. And the cost was really really cheap. They were out going and very friendly too. I will never goto another mechanic. I am their customer for life

Quick, reasonably-priced, friendly and professional. They went above and beyond by double-checking that my car would turn off and on again, after the jump-start and also personally returned my keys to the front door. Would definitely use them again.

Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
