Swedish Saab Services (brooklyn) is run by roland, he works only on saabs from what I know, though i have seen a totaled beemer outside his shop once.

He's a handy enough guy, and sells a few saabs himself, they're outside his shop. I've seen him do everything from routine brakes to engine rebuilds. The first couple of times I went to him he was nice and friendly. The last few times I went, he either wasnt there, or he was dicking around with a buddy's saab and I didnt feel welcome at all. Also he's by appointment only.

Im sure he knows the trouble spots to look at though for a pre purchase inspection. He could give it a quick rundown with a tech2 also.

Charges $95 an hour last I was there.

tl;dr mixed feelings about him but he knows his shit well enough.
