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.
Great First Car

This was not an easy choice but we bought this car for everyday use for a teenager. So far so good. The car looks and feels like a luxury automobile. The interior is leather and the exterior is just perfect.
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.
A pleasure to drive

This beautiful car handles magnificently. It is a real pleasure to drive.
There have been no major problems to date. The Volvo dealer provides excellent service.
My wife and I went looking for a new SUV. We were met by a great sales person John Stetzer who was great. He was not pushy but very knowledgeable and really went out of his way to make sure my family was taken care of. Best car buying experience we ever had will be buy any car in the future from CarSense and will ask for John Stetzer.
Great handling car! Suspension gives a smooth ride

This car is everything I desire in a premier auto. The safety features are first rate from the rear view screen to the multiple air bags. The styling is exquisite, very comfortable. The leg room in the rear seating is roomier than the other cars in this class.
Very helpful. Staff friendly and polite. Good work. Glad i found them. They are the go to dealership for performance work on GM vehicles.
First time owning a Volvo and won’t be my last.

This car gets great gas mileage but also gives the power needed of a sports car. All wheel drive is a must and the sound system is great. Over $40K new a used Volvo with low miles will keep you on the road for some time.
I did an 100 mile search for a specific vehicle I was looking to purchase. I found the newest model, with low miles and cheapest price at CarSense. I called and made an appointment with Mike Hallman. Mike was great to deal with and was very helpful with providing information. My experience consisted of the following:
- The car was practically brand new with very low mileage.
- The price was the best within a 100 mile radius.
- I was genuinely surprised by the amount they gave me for my trade-in. I'm use to getting low-balled on trade-in's not MORE that I expected!
- Test drove the car and committed to the purchase. Mike searched several financial institutions and got me a great rate.
- In and out of the dealership in record time.
Just a great experience all around. I feel that I got a great deal. No haggling on the price or trade-in removes the stress from the process. I guess it helps when the price and trade-in are generous and fair. I would recommend CarSense to anyone looking for a new vehicle. By the crowd of people at the dealership, I think many people would agree with me!
The safest and most luxurious car I’ve ever owned!

I had a 2012 VOLVO and when I decided to get another car, it was a no brained to puchaser a newer car in the same model. The leather interior and all-wheel drive were the main features I was looking for.
Saw the car online. Looked like a good deal. Read some not so great reviews about this dealership but liked the price point for the vehicle year and low mileage so gave them a shot. Tremendously pleased with the car, the experience, and the staff. Josh sold us the car and Ryan, the manager, filled in when Josh was closing another sale. Very informative and considerate gentlemen. I was pre-approved which made the process smoother. Also received great value for my low mileage trade in. Plan to return for my next purchase.
more fun than my 911 was

AWD with paddle shifters and 325 HP make this car a true 4 door sports car. Quick and nimble, this car is fun to drive with excellent gas mileage and comfortable to take on long trips. I had a 6 spd 911 which was awesome but this car is more fun to drive, very versatile and much less expensive up keep.
Great all around service and people. Facility is very nice, Advisor was very good and the service was completed in a timely manner.
No Longer a Wolf, but much more than a sheep

This is the second S60 I have owned, previously having had a 2006 S60R. I traded in that vehicle for my current vehicle, an S60 R Design with the Polestar software upgrade. The current iteration of the “R”, although fast, with great brakes, is not a true sports sedan. The previous vehicle accelerated more quickly, tracked truer, and had a suspension more suited to a car billed as a “performance. ” model. Although my newer R-Design is quite fast, and handles quite well, it possesses an inherent “softness” which lowers the fun quotient a bit.
Excellent and Trustworthy! I found a great team in sales and service.
Everyone seems to enjoy their job and if they really dislike their job,
they are hiding it very well.
Best car I've ever owned.

This car is above what I thought it would be. The performance is excellent. The S60 has an awesome phone app that allows me to start my car remotely, a map that gives my car location and it reminds me that my doors are unlocked. I love it!😊
I was interested in a car at LCM. When I got there Barry gave me the key and a plate.
I asked him to figure out the total while I was test driving. When I came back I liked the car and the price, so I bought it. Couldn't have been easier.
I’m glad I purchased this car

I really like the bells and whistles on this vehicle. I have received so many compliments on my car. I will purchase another Volvo in the future.
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.
Great car all around

The car was fun to drive and had enough power to make the heavy chassis cover ground quickly. The interior was comfortable and the leather was perfect
Was very pleased with the whole process. I’m sure most even myself are Leary of small dealerships but the whole experience was great. We drove over three hours to get there the car was ready for us to see we were pleased and the process was quick
Great car, second one I have owned

I love this car for its superb safety features, overall quality, and smooth ride. It is a joy to drive and I highly recommend Volvo!
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.
Very fun to drive

This car is very fun to drive met all my needs for what i needed it for when the turbo kicks in while passing you go by the car like it was standing still
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!!!
Favorite car ever!

This small car is comfortable, safe, sleek, and roomy. I love how it looks and runs like a new vehicle and it's ten years old!
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.
Second S60, still rock solid
by Winegirl from Brookfield, WI
September 18, 2018
Mine has 47,000 miles after 12 years of ownership. Looks like it just drove off the showroom floor since the composite lower body panels and great paint job resist dings, chips. Replaced the timing belt/tensioner, battery and tires just due to age. Use only synthetic oil. Have had the routine checkups done by certified mechanic. Vehicle handles well, has excellent power and stability, feels solid and safe and styling is still fresh looking. Have never regretted driving Volvos.
The external design is objective, but I admire the clean appearance. Nothing looks excessive or just added in an attempt to look more "aggressive." This car has a lot of pep to it, more than I was expecting.
The interior feels cozy with an elegant style. The driver's seat is extremely comfortable, although my criticism would be it feels like I'm dropping down into a bunker when I get in, and I'm pulling myself out of a hole when I get out, due to the center of the seat where you're sitting being considerably lower than the edges of the seat. However, this is just a personal feeling, and I would imagine a lot of other people like it.
Staff was friendly and efficient. Went out of their way to be helpful. First time I have left a dealership service department without feeling taken advantage of / “ripped off”.
Loving my Volvo
by erinlorra from Omaha, NE
April 24, 2018
I love my Volvo S60...what a fun and sporty sedan! I have always driven 2-door cars; however, this gives me a 2-door feel with the convenience of 4-doors.
The reason I gave a 4 of 5-star rating on Interior Design is that the control panels are difficult to adjust while driving. Beautiful to look at, but not very functional. The 4 of 5-star rating for Reliability is only because I have not had to test this with the car since I just purchased it a little over a month ago.
Overall--LOVE this car and I think Volvo has made a lifelong believer! :)
The young ladies at the service desk are exceptional. You're always greeted with a smile and they are always working to accommodate our schedule when we call in for service or scheduled maintenance. The dealership is the best at customer service, far better than other car dealerships that we've dealt with from other car manufactures.
I Love my 2017 Volvo S60 T5 AWD

I am very happy with this vehicle as evidenced by the fact that this replaced my previous 2014 Volvo S60 T5 AWD. Whenever I drive this vehicle, I smile.... it is a great car!
