European Motors Hours
We are a family owned and operated Volvo sales and service shop for over 45 years. Volvo is our specialty.
"Volvo Sales and Service Since 1970!"
I had an old S70 that I brought to Nate for service a few times and he never tried to oversell me anything I didn't need. He offered a loaner if I needed... it and was always straightforward about what needed fixing right now and what could wait. I used him for a few years until we moved out of the area to Harrisburg and had nothing but great service. Fast forward 4 years when it was time for my wife to get a new (used) car. Based on my experience with Volvos and with Nate we decided to check his stock, found a couple good candidates, and went to visit. We found a prime candidate in a 2012 XC90. It had higher mileage (nearly 90K) but with Nate's reputation for carrying solid used cars there was little hesitation in believing that this car would last us for many years to come. That and the fact that is was a one-owner vehicle with impeccable service records helped as well. Nate made the buying process very easy and delivered a first rate car that was in better shape than one with a fraction of the mileage on it. We have been very happy with this car and it has proved our belief that it's worth driving the extra distance to deal with someone you can trust.
My husband and I bought 2 used Volvo's from Nate and Aaron a year ago. We are from out of town and so we have our own Volvo service shop we use. The cars... were just due for the yearly inspection and both cars passed with no problems, a year after we bought them. My mechanic even went so far as to say European Motors did a really nice job of preparing and servicing these cars before they sold them and the good work is evident to them. Thank you for providing us with such good used cars.
Thank you very much Tammy. We really appreciate the follow up review. We wish you many more years of happy motoring.
While living in Reading I used this shop for all my repairs on my Volvo S70 and had nothing but great results. We moved to Harrisburg and when it came... time for my wife to buy a new (used) car we found exactly what we were looking for at European Motors. We bought a 2012 XC90 and Nate made the buying experience extremely easy. The car had been performing great for the last couple months since we bought it so that when it came time to replace my aging S70 a couple months later we once again returned here to find yup, exactly the car we were looking for, a 2011 S60 T6 in perfect condition. Quickest car sale ever. I did find a couple issues once I got it home but a quick call to Nate and all was made right. I have no hesitation in recommending this shop for both quality used Volvo's and reliable service. It's worth the trip.
Thank you very much Steve. I appreciate your business and look forward to working together again in the future.
My wife and I were looking to purchase a Volvo to replace the 2002 C70 that our daughter totaled. With five children, and two of them driving, we are firm... believers in Volvo's reliability and safety. After doing much research on the Internet and some test drives, we narrowed our search down to two small, local preowned dealers. The S60 seemed to be our best bet and fit our needs. What sold us on European Motors was Nathan's dedication to customer service, the online reviews on Cars.com, but most of all the car itself. We found a beautiful S60 that had absolutely everything we were looking for. Thank you European Motors and thank you Nathan. We are excited and looking forward to many years of enjoyment with our "new" car.
Thank you very much Mike I really appreciate the business and I hope we can help you with any future cars for the rest of the kids.
I have purchased 2 Cars from Nate. Both times I felt like family. He knows how to take care of people and take care of business. Highest recommendation... and you won't be disappointed. This place is honestly to good to be true!!!
Thank you Brian! I really appreciate the repeat business. Enjoy your new vibrant copper S60 T5. It is a gorgeous car.
This place is just the best. Honest and reliable guys plus great cars. My family has been going here for near a decade to buy cars and have them serviced.... Would absolutely recommend.
Thank you very much! I appreciate you and your family's business all these years. I look forward to many more!
So, I started the search for a new/used vehicle by emailing sales departments at various dealerships. I had three simple questions. What was interesting... is Nathan was the only one who responded in a timely manner and answered all three questions the first time. Most other internet sales departments didn't bother and jumped straight to asking when I was coming in to take a look at the car. This led me to believe Nathan wasn't just a salesman and was truly interested in great customer satisfaction. After three weeks of shopping and research I ended up coming back to Nathan and his dealership in PA. I was really lucky that the car I was interested in was actually still there as 2008 XC90 with less than 80K was very hard to find! I amtraked it from DC to Philly and Ubered to the dealership. The trip put me at the dealership after they closed but because Nathan was willing and able to communicate effectively (email/text), he stayed late knowing I was coming from such a distance showing empathy and understanding which is hard to come by these days. The buying process was painless and I am completely in love with my choice! I have no doubt that when I need another Volvo that I will be coming back to Nathan and his team. I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone looking for a Volvo as well. Also, don't let the smallness of the dealership fool you and make sure to bring dog treats for the beagles if you're going to be late!
Hi Jamie, thank you very much for the great review. I'm glad the XC90 is working out for you, they are great cars. Hopefully you will have many years ...of happy motoring.
Had a great experience each time dealing with this company. The only thing that makes purchasing a vehicle difficult is the distance of the dealer for... me.
My wife and I have bought 2 cars from European Motors in the past 4 years. We have taken our cars to be serviced by them as well. They know these cars... very well and it shows when it comes to repairs. They charge a fraction of the price the Volvo dealers charges (at least the ones we visited). We had an issue with the throttle control / fuel intake. My wife and I were out of town at the time so we went to a dealership and 2 hours and $200 later they had re-programmed the cars computer but had failed to actually solve the issue. Took it to these guys and they found the issue was the fuel intake valve (I believe that was the name of it, it was a little while ago) had a build up of gunk. They cleaned it and re-installed it all for less than $100. They told us it may need to be replaced but that it was an expensive part and that it was worth trying to use the existing part. Afterwards the car worked fine! (but then it was totaled in that hail storm we had; though none of the windows blew in like many of the other 'luxury' brands we observed stuck in the same storm) They've helped us with other minor issues as well (including a bent brake shield which mostly likely was cause because I got lazy about cleaning the driveway of snow last winter since the 2004 xc-70 we bought from them scoffed at the ice and snow trying to hold it in its place). They are very honest and pleasant to do business with. (We enjoy their service so much I've even convinced them to service my 2006 Mazda3 since at least the frame is the same as some of the Volvos of the same year; they've saved me money and time with that car as well compared to local Mazda dealer. But don't tell them I told you so..) In short, these guys are one of the oh too rare bastions of honest, knowledgeable, and just plain great car service. It seems a crime if at least 1 car in your driveway hasn't been bought from them.
Thanks Dan! We appreciate your continued service business and we also love that your mom decided to get a new XC60 from us as well. Thanks again!
Nate and Aaron are like proud parents when it comes to European Motors. This is immediately seen and felt when you enter the office at European Motors.... From the historical photographs on the walls, to the nostalgic roll top desk, to the precious pups that will greet you, you are assured that this isn't your average auto shop. Nate and Aaron pride themselves on running the family owned shop on the values that the shop was originally built on. Professionalism, Master knowledge, and Customer Service. I recently took my 2004 Volvo X70 wagon in for a repair. The part needed did not arrive at the shop on the day Nate expected it to. Nate immediately offered me a loaner car. The following day when I picked up my car, I mentioned to Nate I was interested in a newer wagon with low mileage, and if something came in that was the deal of the century, let me know. Nate immediately pointed to a wagon on the lot. Upon closer inspection, I loved the car, but not the pin striping. No worries. Nate had the pin striping updated. It gave the car a whole new look! Sold! Nate now has a very reliable 2004 black X70 Volvo wagon, only two owners, for sale. European Motors for Life.
Thank you very much! I enjoy seeing our customers progress through the years and nice new (to them) Volvo's.
