I was on my way to LA driving south on Route 1 in my 2004 Volvo V-40 when my check-engine light came on about 5 miles from SLO. As it happened, I intended to stop at Villa Automotive to review the progress of the work on a different car, a Plymouth minivan. Just before leaving Villa Automotive, I mentioned the check engine light to Soc Pena, and asked if I should be concerned. Soc immediately inspected the car and found a coolant line tucked behind the engine block that was leaking and ready to pop. The team at Villa immediately repaired the line and had me on the road within an hour. The service fee was very reasonable. Villa Automotive saved the day and probably prevented what would have been a major mechanical failure on my drive to LA .
