Auto Scandia is a full-service European auto repair shop in Herndon, VA that is dedicated to providing our clients with the best service possible. With more than 40 years in operation, we’ve learned what our clients need and want from us, and we’ve perfected our personalized customer service model, so you can always be assured of a pleasant experience when you bring your vehicle to us.

Auto Scandia has its roots in Washington DC, where owner Mark Bredesen got his start working on Volvos. Over time, it became obvious Auto Scandia’s experience was needed for other vehicle brands, and the garage also outgrew its original location, which is how we ended up in our lovely brick building in Herndon.

In addition to our top-of-the-line customer service, our clients know they can expect only the best from us when it comes to maintenance and repairs. We employ only the most skilled and dedicated mechanics, who are all factory-trained and certified, and they use factory-grade diagnostic equipment to figure out what’s going on with your car.

In addition to regular maintenance and diagnostics, some of the services we offer include:

Auto A/C Repair


While it’s true that air conditioning is a luxury, in many parts of the world it’s a necessity.

Auto Brake Repair & Service


The braking system is one of the most important safety features on a car, so it is essential to keep it in good working order.

Auto Check Engine Light Diagnostics


The check engine light is one of the most misunderstood lights on a car’s dashboard.

Auto Clutch Repair


A car’s clutch is a vital component, responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels.

Auto Engine Repair


When your engine starts making unusual noises, it’s time to take it in for repairs.

Auto Oil Change Service


Just as our bodies need regular check-ups and tune-ups, our cars need regular maintenance in order to stay healthy and running smoothly.

Auto Suspension Repair


As anyone who has ever hit a pothole knows, a car’s suspension is important for providing a smooth ride.

Auto Transmission Repair


When a car is driven, the engine creates power that is then transferred to the wheels through a system of gears.
