I have always been happy with their service in purchasing vehicles but havent had any actual work done or anything. If any of you guys can reccomend a good mechanic or where is a good place in the Cities to take it I'm all ears or else I'm afraid Ill be taking it up the tail pipe from the dealer
Well, as far as Saab Dealers, you get two choices, Morries in Minnetonka and Schmelz in Maplewood. Morries has been alright to me, I haven't made it over to Schmelz yet. Otherwise, your nearest dealer would either be in Sioux Falls, SD or Meyer Saab in McIntyre, IA, which is about 45 mins south of Rochester. I have spoken with the people at Meyer Saab and they were super nice, and their labor rate is a steal: Morries wants $105/hr and Meyer wants $45/hr, and it's a 2 hrs drive for me (on the way to my grandma's house in Des Moines)! I called around to get an XM radio installed, Morries wants $600, Schmelz wants $550, but Meyer Garage quoted me about $350. I think that's worth the 2 hr drive. There are also some independents around, like Andrews Motors in Princeton, who even has a dropoff service in Minneapolis where they put your car on a car-hauler and bring it up there. Someone was telling me about an independent Saab garage in Northfield, I will have to figure out the name.
