Our Specialists

We're a unique shop in that while we're family owned and operated we also make sure we hire the best and the brightest technicians. Once a technician is a part of the team we ensure each one stays current with automotive excellence exams which allows us to keep our blue seal of excellence. We are one of the few shops in town able to display the Blue Seal. All of our techs are NC State Inspectors in both emissions and safety. We're a bunch of gear heads so we pay attention to new technology and make sure we have the latest equipment to deal with any problems your vehicle may have.

Chris A Greer

Chris A Greer

OWNER

Fixing cars is something he’s loved doing for a long time – in the early days he even fixed cars in his backyard. These days he does anything that needs to be done in the shop. He enjoys mentoring the younger guys but can’t resist getting his hands dirty and helping out with the repairs. He’s proud that PAS is a family business and hopes the family feeling extends to customers.

There’s not a Volvo out there that Chris can’t fix.

 

Chris Roos

Chris Roos

SERVICE ADVISOR

Chris is one of the first faces you see when you walk in our doors and that’s just how he likes it. Chris’ favorite part of the job is customer service. Not only will he remember your car but he’ll most likely remember your name. He listens to you and takes the first steps to get your car fixed – checks on parts availability and contacts you with an estimate of the cost and how long it will take. When you come to pick up your vehicle, he’ll also make sure the total you owe is the same as the estimate he gave.
