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.

aireeca Search for a member on here by the name airsaab. She lives north of the city and might have some ideas. There's always Reinertsen out in NJ but that's a bit of a hike.

Jack Straw I am in Brooklyn but I don't know the first thing about those cars beyond "does it run." I couldn't really do much beyond check the tire tread etc. that anyone can read up on online. I'm assuming with that low mileage it should come with all the service records.

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.
