Tom Donoghue's Value Auto Service has been in business for over seventeen years.

Before Tom opened VAlue Auto, he worked for over a decade as a factory-trained master mechanic at a Volvo Dealership in Orange County.

Tom feels his low prices and quality service are what drives his thriving repeat business. Simply put, once a car owner comes here for service, he rarely goes anywhere else. A testament to Tom's continuing commitment to quality and fair pricing.

His staff is highly trained and contributes a great deal to his ongoing success at bringing customer back again and again to the best undiscovered Volvo shop in Orange County.

"We work hard to get it right," Tom states. "We really treat you like family here. We all know how important your transportation is in Southern California and we can all imagine that day when your car breaks down and you're stuck on the freeway in the rain. We never want that to happen to anyone in our families and we don't want it to happen to our customers. "

Come see Tom and the crew to discuss your service needs. There is simply no better shop in Orange County to take care of your Volvo.

No one beats Tom for price and service. A timing belt, tensioner and 90k service for less than the price of a Volvo dealer's tranmission flush? That's amazing. Great shop and a great guy. Mark Sevi, 2001 V70 XC, 125,000k

The best, bar none. -- J.C., Huntington Beach, CA

My 1988 780 isn't pretty but it runs like a new car. Part of that reason is Tom and his guys. -- Manny, Newport Beach, CA

Thanks, Tom. -- Lannie, S.J.C, CA

I'm going to hate when or if I have to buy a new car because that means I won't be taking it to Tom until the warranty wears off. --Mike, C.M., CA

Fast, inexpensive and reliable.  Every mechanic should be this way. -- Julie W. Long Beach, CA

Tom was recommended to me by a Volvo car club. Boy were they right! M. Lien., Fountain Valley, CA
