Hello,

I worked at O'Hare from March '06 till Febthis year. I used to patronise Patrick's Volvo in Schaumburg, except I did not make much purchases and the only service I had on my 850 was the wheel alignment. The technicians at Patrick are highly skilled & up-to-date.

I used to say "Greetings from Chicagoland", which is now replaced by "Greetings from Narita, Japan"[8D]. I wish I can say "Greetings from wherever the States" soon in the future.

Watch out for snow; be sure to have a good set of snow tyres/all-season tyres.

Hi JPN,

Sorry I haven't checked out this forum in awhile, so I see you've been to Patrick's Volvo, so you recommend them? I had price quotes from all around the area and they were actually the highest price. How are you liking Japan? My wife and I would like to go there once, among many other worldly travels that we have in mind, if we ever have the funds.

My wife and I used to live in Chicago but moved out to Lombard a little over 3 years ago after we got married. Now we live in Plainfield. One extreme to the other. Still getting used to that.

I'll second the post about Volvo of Oak Park. Even the service online for order parts is amazing. I have ordered several times and plan to order several more. Shipping is fast and very reasonably priced. I got on this thread with the intention of promoting them because of my experiences, and then I saw there was already a post.


I appreciate the good work guys, keep it up!
