: Saab car care clinic in Etobicoke

2nd April 2004, 05:58 PM
I just receieved a letter (same as last year) from "Saab on the Queensway".

They are running free car care clinics the week of April 12 to 17.
They will perform a "thorough" 52 point inspection including a road test to "assess your Saab's condition before summer".

This is a free clinic.

I have mine booked in on the 17th at 10:30 am ... they still had spots available on the Saturday when I called yesterday.

If anyone decides to take advantage of this, please PM me ... maybe we could meet up for a coffee or something.

Although it would be fun to attend a free clinic....it is a little bit to far to head to Toronto just for this purpose.

OK, so I had the "52 point check" done this morning.

I must say, the results were astounding!

They thought my car was in fantastic condition! :cheesy:

They had a few thigs noted ...
"Parking brake cables seized" - the cables may not be in great condition, but it is the drivers side parking brake that is seized, not the cables. I think they just generalized on that one.
Quote to fix: $390.00
I'm hoping the brake expert (Tweek's) will fix that for me in Cleveland in May. :wink:
Just kidding Tweek's! :cheesy:
"Washer jets need aligning" - they are aligned for highway use right now and I'm OK with that.
Quote to fix: $30! What?! :o :nono;
"Running light out" - just that.
Quote to fix: $17.50! What?! :o :nono; I had a spare in with the spare tire and replaced it in the parking lot! :cheesy:

All in all, a satisfying experience. 8)

Queensway Saab is doing it again!

I'll be booking mine in for early Saturday morning if anyone else wants to meet up there.
Give them a call and tell them you want to get an appointment for the "Saab Car Care Clinic".

Actually, sadly it had to be retired and is missing its head. But maybe I could drag it out of the back field with a tractor. But it would be funny!
