A Rich Volvo History in Sacramento

The staff and management at SVS have been a part of Sacramento's Volvo Service - and the Volvo community - since 1980. 

Before starting SVS, founder Robert Marcello was a mechanic and team foreman at Turner Volvo (now Niello Volvo), mechanic at Winter Volvo, and mechanic at Barber's Shop Automotive. In 1979 Robert met Ken "Kenny" Cochrane in 1979, who was an assistant service manager. A couple years later Robert offered Kenny the job of General Manager at SVS, a position he held for 36 years.

Volvo is Latin for "I roll"

We'll do everything we can to keep you rolling easy. When you own a Volvo, you're in for the ride of your life. When you bring it to SVS, we're in it for the life of your ride!

There are a few other Turner and Winter Volvo dealer alumni on the SVS staff, including Parts Manager John Dettman. John's one of the most knowledgeable and experienced Volvo parts experts in Northern California.

You invested in your Volvo. We're investing in its future.

Like your Volvo, we're here for the long term. Whether you have a brand new Volvo or that trusted, reliable Classic Volvo you've had for years, SVS is dedicated to investing in technology, the latest equipment and techniques. Of course, it's more than equipment - it's the ability to assess, analyze, interpret and repair.
