Default Conntech Saab in Rhode Island. Two Thumbs Up!

Just wanted to let those of you who are Rhode Islanders know that I had a terrific experience with an indie SAAB mechanic in Warwick, RI called Conntech.

They work exclusively on Saabs and do a good job of it too.

They are more knowledgeable than the dealers I've dealt with, as well as being very helpful.

They offer to help find used parts as well as new, and undercut the dealers significantly in all the cases I have dealt with them!

If you need some work done, check them out:

Conn-Tech Automotive
(401) 738-3665
180 Jefferson Blvd
Warwick, RI 02888

Good to hear. I don't know if I'd go to a place called "Con Tech" but I'm glad it worked out well!

They also work on Lotus. Got my wife a tonneau cover there. I'm glad you found it.

I saw the Lotus Esprit in the shop, but I got the impression it was th eowners project, and not a vehicle they were working on for someone else..

I have been going to ConnTech since Wigwam SAAB closed in 2007. I will not go to the dealer unless needed to for programming on my 9-3SS. You may also find it good to know that not just the owner and his wife, but the mechanics all drive SAABs as well. In fact, they all camped next to me at SAABs at Carlisle 2010. The owner, Mike, is also well known throughout the SAAB community on a national scale.

The only downside is booking an appointment, which just goes to show how good they truly are.

ConnTech is exclusively SAAB. Mike and pretty much his entire crew are all previous employees if Wigwam SAAB. Therefore, they all know their ****. They all drive SAABs and are all involved in the SAAB community.

I have nothing negative to say about Swedish Motors - I am just more comfortable with ConnTech

I will say this tho - neither have adequate parking. LOL
