I have been coming to Ackerman's for over two years and have always gotten top notch, really fast, reasonably priced service. I recommend them to anyone who needs Volvo or Subaru service and they will get my business as long as I own a car. A very satisfied customer, Andrew j. Ataie

Always fast service, reasonable rates especially for European cars.

They are so kind and honest! I will definitely come again.

You guys were great. I felt like I got the truth about what needed to be fixed and what didn't.

Professional, courteous, fast, reasonable. As good an experience as you can have while getting your Volvo repaired or tuned up mine is a 1991 Volvo 240S. It is a pleasure to deal with Bruce and his staff.

I've been working with Bruce Ackerman since moving back to Berkeley in 1981. He has consistently gone the extra mile for me through many harrowing used car and new car trials and tribulations. The staff is top notch and I've been recommending him to my friends and colleagues for well over 30 years. The excitement of a drawing for free dining as well as a voluntary contribution to the charity of my choice is just the beginning I can''t imagine going anywhere else.

I've been very frustrated with my check engine light in my 2001 Volvo V40. I've been using a great mechanic but they really specialize in Mercedes, so I interviewed a Volvo shop in San Rafael CA and Ackerman's in Berkeley. I ended up going with Ackerman's: fast, efficient, gave me a AAA discount and 5% of my repair donated to my favorite charity. But the most important part was I felt I could trust Bruce Ackerman. I am a 65 year old woman and have been ripped off by the dealer; even though I live in Novato, Ackerman's is now my new mechanic and I am happy. Thank You Bruce and crew for your integrity and high level of excellence.

I've never imagined I'd be writing a 5 star review for a mechanic, but I love these guys so much. They do impeccable service. They've given me really reasonable rates and gotten my car back to me in a timely manor. They're responsive and kind. They've communicate well and with great consideration. Bruce is an absolute sweetheart of a man. I'm so grateful that I found them.

I started having Bruce and his team service my 1998 V90 about ten years ago. I am so glad that I did. They got my dear old Volvo in tip top shape and kept it that way for years. The Ackerman team treats your Volvo the way they would treat their own car. Sadly, as my wagon got to the point that at 150K miles on the engine it was going to need major work, I decided to pass it on to a friend who needed dependable wheels. She plans to get the work done -- at Ackermans -- even though she lives in Danville! So, even though I will no longer be seeing my old friends at Ackermans, Vivian the Volvo will continue to be serviced by their talented mechanics.

I finally ended my 8 year unhealthy relationship with the Volvo dealership & moved to Ackerman's! why oh why did I wait so long???Bruce & his staff are awesome-- attentive, knowledgeable & reliable. I get calls if the repairservice is going to be more than originally estimated. the car is actually ready when it is supposed to be, or I get a call if they need more time. I don't feel pushed into repairsservice I don't need. and I don't end up spending %600 every time I walk through the door. I also love the shop's commitment to charitable giving-- don't forget to designate a non-profit & Ackerman's will donate 5% of labor costs to your cause!
