Our roots began in 1978, when Mark Bredesen, President and Owner of AutoScandia, started his career servicing Volvos in his neighborhood. Mark grew up in the Capitol Hill historic area of Washington, DC, where he began to cultivate a community of trustworthy service.

When his business outgrew his neighborhood, he relocated to the Reston/Herndon area of Northern Virginia. AutoScandia is currently a twelve bay shop servicing thousands of long-term customers housed in a stately brick building just off of Fairfax County Parkway.

AWESOME customer service and honest mechanics that take pride in their craft and skill. I’ve been bringing my BMW here for years and have had nothing but positive experiences. I’ve referred many people here and they have had similar experiences.

I really can’t say enough about this bunch.  They are knowledgeable, professional, and completely service-oriented. It’s a great team!

Once again, I came to AutoScandia for an honest evaluation. They delivered an assessment that saved me an unnecessary brake shoe replacement that the dealer was pushing hard. I have appreciated the AutoScandia team for over 30 years. Grateful for their skill and integrity. Thank you!

Words are inadequate to explain how completely satisfied I am with AutoScandia. Anyone who lives in this area should consider having their car repairs and maintenance from AutoScandia. Their workmanship is superb (I’ve used them for over two decades and never had an issue), the price is right, and they get the car back pronto.

I have used AutoScandia exclusively for over 20 years and have always been able to rely on its top-notch service, whether for a specific malfunction or an annual checkup. I have its skilled technicians to thank for keeping my 1991 station wagon running dependably…perhaps for the rest of my life!
