Vi Pratar Svenska
(Swedish Spoken Here)
Vi Pratar Svenska is printed on most everything from the Swedish Car Clinic. As it should be! The owner, Peter Kjellberg is from Sweden and Swedish trained as are some of the technicians. Of course English is spoken here as well, but the attitudes, the ethics, and the manners of the Swedish prevail.
Here you find people who care about you and your automobile, they treat each individual case as a commitment to service and not a one-shot visit for a repair. Most clients have been going to the Swedish Car Clinic for years and are considered long-time friends. But, whether you are a new friend or an old friend, you are treated with respect, honesty, warmth and consideration.
The essence of Peter is evident, immediately, his modest, sometimes shy, and sometimes kookie personality surrounds the Swedish Car Clinic. You may find him riding a scooter around the huge work area or under a car, but you will never find him still. He is a constant motion machine and his drive, energy and honesty have given him over 30 years in business.
The recent move to 24200 S. Vermont in Harbor City, it to a huge and lovingly renovated building with all the amenities for his customers and employees. You are invited to just stop by and have a cup of coffee, for that is the Swedish way of welcoming you...
