Ackerman's, a Volvo-only repair shop in Berkeley, CA, was founded in 1983 by Bruce Ackerman, a Volvo enthusiast who has been working on cars since before he was old enough to get a driver's license. In the two decades since, hundreds of Bay Area Volvo drivers have become loyal Ackerman's customers. They come from miles around to Bruce's cheery San Pablo Avenue shop, driving Volvos of all vintages: from sparkling-new SUVs still under warranty, to '80s wagons that are still safely on the road at the 300,000 mile mark.
University exit, Right on San Pablo. In between Allston and Bancroft
