    Default Volvo Mechanic in NYC - hard shift at highway speeds

    So, i have the dreaded highway speed clunk in my XC70 (really, it's just a hard shift up into gear at highway speeds). I'm hoping it's just a transmission flush away from being fixed, but I'm not convinced or hopeful.

    Anyone know of a relatively good Volvo mechanic? I know a GREAT Saab mechanic, but he doesn't do the other Swedes.

    Suggestions? Brooklyn, Queens, North Jersey, Long Island, Rockland, Westchester ... anyone good around these parts?

    thanks

    Default Great mechanic in Bklyn

    Check out L&M Foreign Cars. They're on Utica / Ave D and are top notch. Google them and read the reviews.

    They specialize in European cars and have done fine by me with my '98 XC.
    Can't recommend them highly enough.
