It can be a wee bit frustrating when your Saab is in need of servicing and you aren’t sure where to take it for quality repairs that won’t cost you a pot of gold.
Taking your Saab to a local independent (Saab) mechanic, versus the dealer, might just be your lucky charm because it can save you money and enable you to build a relationship with a trained technician working on your vehicle.
SAAB – How to Save Money
By taking your Saab to an independent repair shop, you won’t have to worry about getting lucky on pricing because costs are generally lower than what the dealer charges.
No, not because of magic or that 4-leaf clover you picked out back, but because OEM parts are not marked up as much and because indy shops have lower hourly rates since overhead is significantly less.
SAAB Personalized service – solid relationship with independent servicer
Independent Saab service centers tend to offer a more genuine, personalized service than that of the dealer.
You are likely to be in direct communication with your Saab mechanic each time you come into their shop. This allows you to form a solid relationship with them, instead of talking to a different service advisor each visit about the repair recommendations a different mechanic suggested while working on your Saab.
Finding the right Saab mechanic can be a blessing when your Saab needs servicing. Don’t become bogged down at the dealer and fall victim to the blarney and shenanigans they can play when it comes to cost and personalized service.
