Our family was driving from Connecticut to Maine when our 2011 XC90 started making a funny sound. At the halfway point, we called Portland Volvo to ask if maybe they could take a look. This was Friday at around 3 pm. Lisa from the Service Dept. answered the phone and was extremely professional and sweet, but informed us there were no open spots that day. She suggested we leave the car overnight and maybe someone would get to it on Saturday. She even suggested a rental car dealership nearby.
Nervous that we were going to do more damage if we tried to drive it home to get it looked at, we followed her advice and were surprise when she called early on Saturday to tell us that they squeezed our car in, and discovered the problem (I believe Walt was the technician who made the time for for our ER car visit. He could have gone for an extra long coffee break instead, so we appreciate it.)
Lisa had all our paperwork taken care of when we arrived for pick up (just as they were closing), there was no push for extra work, and we drove away relieved and grateful.
Portland Volvo saved our short weekend vacation and treated us Flatlanders just as kindly and respectfully as I'm sure they do their regular customers. Highly recommend.
