Al's Volvo Service
The only reason he has one star is because it does not allow me to give none! Al quotes you a price, and then charges you more. I was going in to get my timing belt changed and he said $480. After it was all said and done he charged me $797 because he felt that the cam shafts needed to be fixed as well.Not even 24 hrs later my Check Engine light came on. After researching and checking what the code was about, it had to do with my cam shaft and timing belt. When i called to ask Al what was going on he said he did not recognize the code and that it was an "aftermarket code". When told him what the code meant he tried to blame it on the fact that someone else had messed with the cam shaft and that he did his nest to fix the "amateurs mistake". Funny thing is that I have never had anyone work on the timing belt or cam shaft before him. After I brought that to his attention, he continued you to find excuses. He tried to tell me that it is because I did not get regular oil changes. I have receipts from all my oil changes and the paperwork. I get regular oil changes ever 3,000 miles like you are supposed to. He was incredibly rude over the phone and unreasonable. I WOULD NOT ever recommend him and his shop. They are trying to find the people that do not know anything about cars and take advantage of them. Because of the mistakes that he and his shop made, I now have to bring my car into another shop to get his work fixed.If you like spending a lot of money for poor service go ahead and go with Al's Volvo. Good luck though!

BE AWARE & CAUTIOUS!!!! Al’s Volvo comes of as a mom& pop with son business but their CROOKS. I took a 1956 Mercedes for restoration gave Al $70,000.00 more than a year has gone by and I had to argue with Al and family to get a invoice on how much money has been spent. The only item they completed was the engine and partial carburetor the invoice showed he charged me over $20,000.00. I decided to have someone else complete the restoration and asked Al to return the rest of my money “he said he didn’t have it to return to me” I’ll get my money when I get it” is what he said. Wouldn’t even work out a payment plan with me. I guess I have to get an attorney and go to court. THIS COMPANY IS A FRAUD I gave them a one rating because I couldn’t give them none or the best scam award!!Their new location is 89 W SHELLEY AVE.SLC UT.

These guys Tom and Josh who I worked with are very friendly n informative. I came there for a specific car. Tom took me to test drive the car, and made it a no brainer for me. He listened to what I needed and what I could do. The deal was set up with in an hour. I traded in my old car and got to drive my new car home.

Prestman Auto Sales
Prestman Auto should be avoided at all costs. I have purchased two vehicles from them and almost a third and through these experiences I have found that while they look squeaky clean on the outside, they are selling truly crappy salvage title cars that are worse than poorly repaired, they are potentially dangerous.I bought my first car from them in 2013 (see my 2013 review) Fast forward to 2016 and I decided to give them another chance. I had found two cars that I was interested in on their lot and figured if I bought two at the same time that they would give me a better deal. I was looking at a 2015 Audi S4 and was about to buy it when, after a test drive and in just the right sunlight, I saw a run in the paint! Upon closer inspection I also noticed that the front bumper had not been repaired on the underside and was not attached properly, leaving it misaligned (and because of the damage from the wreck) it could not be aligned. I told the salesman (they are all seem like nice people, but are dishonest as the day is long) that it had a run in the paint. He came out and looked at it and I told him I was a buyer if they would fix the fender and the paint. He checked with Tracy the sales manager (same guy that sold me my 2011 Audi) and Tracy said he would fix it AFTER I bought it! What that told me is that they weren’t going to fix it if I didn’t buy it and would hope that the next guy wouldn’t notice (like when I bought my 2011 S4 from them). Obviously, that put a bad taste in my mouth about that vehicle. I went home and did some research on it and found that it had a very interesting past, which I won’t get into here, but it was enough bad mojo on this thing that I was out. However, I ended up buying a 2015 Lexus IS250F from them a couple of days later. Great looking car. As they were doing the paper work, I ran my hands across the paint (after having found overspray and drips on the two Audis, and sure enough; overspray all over the hood). I immediately went in and told them I was “out” on this car too if they wouldn’t fix it. They reluctantly agreed to do it and I picked up the car a couple of days later. All was good, until…Wife gets in an accident. Body shop calls and says you should see the crappy work they did on the repair down here. Welded stuff and didn’t paint it. Temporary fixes all over the engine box. Broken headlight that should have been replaced during the original restore (not damaged in my wife’s accident). So, I’m disappointed, but the shop ended up fixing everything with the insurance payment and I decided to let it go. Then…A couple of months later we get the dreaded ABS indicator on the dash. Take it into the dealer to find out that the brake actuator should have been replaced after the accident that totaled the vehicle. The dealer report read, “Scanned vehicle and found multiple codes from the brake actuator causing several different attributes of the vehicle to fail, such as the power steering, combination meter, blind spot monitor and several others.” They also showed us that the under dash on the driver’s side was repaired with duct tape rather than being replaced! Instead of doing the right thing or the safe thing, they left the damaged part on the vehicle, putting the future owners lives at risk and putting us in a position to pay a nearly $3700 bill to get the part replaced and the car fully functional and safe again. These guys are scammy. What’s the chance that three cars out of three over the course of three and a half years would all have crappy paint jobs and shoddy repairs? Odds are that the preponderance of their vehicles are not fixed properly but most buyers never figure that out. Stay away from these guys! I know their clean lot and nice looking cars and friendly sales people with their cold bottled water and the lower prices are very enticing, but it’s all a façade. There are reputable places to buy a used car. Prestman is not one.

Messaged about a car that I liked: obviously lowballed from what I would have been willing to pay because I was curious to see what they would be willing to discuss. The original price was fine and I would have been fine paying nearly exactly that amount and could have if I chose. Received back, "Where do you people come up with these numbers". Yeah screw you too guess I won't buy your car.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
