Tyrone is a mainstay and well-respected for his knowledge of Volvos. He is certified in many areas of Volvo service and repair, including advanced software networking on Volvos. He can handle any job from oil changes to major repairs. When he’s not repairing Volvos, you might find him hunting or fishing.
