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.

Mechanic in NYC (Mannhattan)
Have a neighbors sister (good neighbor) who is looking to get an 03 9-3 Arc, 30K miles and lives in NYC. I recommended a checkup since she is not a car person. I said that I don't know anyone in NYC, specifically Mannhattan, but would post question for mechanic/someone who can run a pre-purchase inspection?
If there isn't saab specific shop, is there anyone you would recommend.
