Svensson Automotive (Verified 2019) 3297 Mt Diablo Blvd Lafayette (925) 299-0720 Email: Click Here Web: svenssonautomotive.com We are a SAAB OFFICIAL SERVICE CENTER. We service SAABS a-z also have a full service body shop. we can repair or drop ship parts to your door straight from the SAAB parts warehouse. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL ME WITH ANY SWEEDISH CAR PROBLEM. I live in the Sacramento area and now that Kuni is no longer providing Saab service, Svensson's is the closest "authorized" service center. They were able to take care of the airbag recall service on my '06 9-5 along with replacement of a couple of faulty vacuum hoses. Nice guys, quick service and I like that they're an independent shop rather than a dealership. John K. Folsom CA True to form, they did it again, Larry and Johnny. Body work and engine work, done beautifully.No more rattles in the engine, dented fender all new and shiny again. They patiently endured all the insurance crises, changes in schedule, customer stress, with grace and courtesy--and support against the bad old insurance company. And, cleaned my car and windows inside and out, which was pathetically needed!! And completed a day ahead of schedule!! They have done great service time and again over the last seven years. The honeymoon is not over. I will be back R.A. Walnut Creek If you live in the Lamorinda area, this is the place to bring your car. Larry and his team are focused, respectful, and dedicated to making your experience as easy as possible. I've been bringing my cars here (post-warranty) for 10+ years, and I've never been let down. Taro T. Stop searching for a quality mechanic because Svensson Automotive is what you are looking for. I brought my Saab 9-3 in for a loss of power problem that had troubled other mechanics. Larry diagnosed the problem and had the car up and running in a few days. The cost was less than I was expecting and my car has run great since... until I made the mistake of taking it into a Jiffy Lube in Castro Valley, when after leaving, some mild symptoms returned. I knew who to call. Larry at Svensson got me in quickly and that Friday I drove up to Lafayette. He found the problem, a damaged vacuum tube (by the technician at Jiffy Lube). He was able to use glue to repair it and only charged me a small labor fee. My Saab is running great! Friendly, knowledgable, reasonably priced... Don't go anywhere else with your Saab or Volvo... Talk to Larry at Svensson. Josh H. My Saab is actually a Saabaru, but this shop was on the approved list when it was time for my airbag recall work to get done. Made an 8am appointment on the first available day. They started work immediately, and got it done in the promised time interval, including an extra task of a elective sensor replacement. Nice guys, fair price, finished the work in the time estimated and got me on my way. Matt R. Oakland CA I recently purchased a 2002 Saab 9-5 wagon and brought it to Svensson for an evaluation. Larry was extremely helpful with a courtesy diagnosis and he showed me what needed to be addressed. Although I currently don't have the funds for the repair, I am confidant that this will be the shop that I will be taking it to. Larry is also a very accomplished musician and had a moment to play a little Johnny Cash on his guitar. I don't know of any other shop that offers great service and a free concert to boot! Looking forward to going back soon. Robert F. Oakland CA
Swedecar (Verified 2019) 22634 Normandie Ave, Unit A Torrance (310) 328-1731 Saabnet.com Sponsor Email: email@example.com Web: www.swedecar.com Saabnet.com Sponsor Once in a rare while you find a highly competent, honest and fair car technician. Anders (Swedecar)is one such individual. After many frustrating episodes with the Saab dealer over servicing my '02 9-3, I found Anders. He has such a vast knowledge of Saabs that he can identify and fix any issue quickly at very, very fair rates. The fact that I drive 100 miles round trip to his shop (even for just an oil change) says it all! Submitted by John B. Anders is a great honest mechanic. He fixed the oil leak for my car (oil pressure switch), the bill was actually lower then what he quoted me on the phone. I have other problems with the car and Anders was happy to provide feedback on the phone. Honest and dependable I highly recommend him for all your Saab service. Submitted by Dean L. I drove to California from upstate NY. My car blew a hose in Colorado and needed a service. Anders was a god send! He checked over my entire car, explained everything along the way and he's a very nice person. I only wish I could bring him home with me! Oh! and he's actually from Sweden!! Submitted by Buck L.
Your Right Solution, Inc. (Verified 2019) Walter Wong 8664 Venice Blvd. Los Angeles CA (310) 666-2406 Saabnet.com Sponsor Email: Click Here Web: www.saabtech.net Walter is The Best mechanic in town, he does everything but body work ,even he give a loaner car and that means a lot for people like me, because I work with my 900T.As mobile service my friends and I we can save and get first class repairs he is working on Saabs only for the last 15 years, and he really know how to keep a Saab on the road without spend more money than necessary. Submitted by: Thomas M. I have an 1985 Saab turbo that has had some problems. I said had. Walter Wong who I found by a happy accident is definitely the Saab Angel with golden wings. Walter only works on Saabs, was trained in Sweden by Saab and is Saab certified. Walter has won numerous awards as mechanic of the year in several countries including Sweden. In my Saab travels around LA many of the Saab mechanics I've talk to know Walter and all nod in approval of his abilities. Walter charges a more than reasonable rate. He's a downright bargain. Walter doesn't just fix your car he resurrects it. I feel like I'm driving a brand new car. Walter installed a transmission and several other parts, clutch, master clutch cylinder etc., for half of what other people charge. He also is honest to a fault. He will tell you how to save money by going to Sears or somewhere else to have shocks put in rather than have him do it. He even tells you when the sales are happening. All said and done Walter has made owning a Saab a joy and not a sob. There is only one drawn back to Walter Wong. He is a family man with children and refused to let me put him in my car trunk forever no many how much money I offered him. Submitted by Brian M. Just as I was about to dump my 1989 Saab 900 SPG (218,000 miles and counting) I found Walter Wong. After years of dealer and mechanic rip offs, I have found an extraordinarily honest mechanic who loves Saabs and looks out for their owners. I am a journalist and need my car constantly. Unlike many mechanics who won't let you near the car when they're working on it, Walter patiently explains what he's doing and what I can do myself. I get several different fixing "options" depending on my budgetary demands. He never makes you feel like a stupid customer. I have learned much about my own car since I met Walter. Last year when my car broke down in Utah, I was stuck in a tiny town with a mechanic who'd never even seen a Saab. Via cell phone, Walter guided the man through a diagnostic. I've decided to keep my car because of Walter. I'll probably be buried in it. I almost have as many miles on me as it does! Submitted by Dianne B. I was having some problems with shifting on my 93 900 Turbo. I received an estimate for $3000 from a mechanic telling me I needed a new transmission. To get a second opinion I put an ad on Saab Net asking for help. Walter responded to my ad, calling me over and over again trying to help and following up to make sure I was making progress on getting my car fixed. Thanks to his over-the-phone diagnostics (which determined I needed a new coupling and not a transmission), repair instructions, and $1.50 (that's one dollar and 50 cents) worth of plastic ties the coupling is fixed and car running great until I can purchase a new coupling and have it installed. From a $3000 estimate to a $1.50 fix - that's pretty incredible. He's also continued to follow up to help me order the new part and fix it myself and has never asked for anything in return. I just wish Walter lived in Redding and not LA. I highly recommend Walter to anyone lucky enough to live close to his shop. Submitted by Kurt H. Walter Wong is an amazing Saab technician. I went to him with several small complaints and he lead me thru the finer points of owning my Saab. With all my confidence I would recommend him to anyone who can travel to LA to see him. I look forward to my next oil change with Walter and future repairs--in his hands i trust! completely! Submitted by Shauna H. I live in Orange County, and drive about 80 miles (one way) to get my '89 900 Turbo serviced by Walter. The man's knowledge of Saabs is immaculate. He can diagnose a problem by a sound or symptom that will confound many indep shop techs. Moreover, his honesty and reasonable prices are unmatched. I've had the firsthand displeasure of returning from a Saab shop with more mechanical difficulties than I had when I arrived. Walter works on the problem, and doesn't create new ones. You'll know when you're in his neighborhood, as the number of Saabs on the street will skyrocket. I heartily recommend Walter for his aptitude and attitude, and suggest that anyone with a serious Saab condition give him a call to get the real deal. Submitted by Brian A. I bought a 1989 900 Turbo convertible with 68000 miles on it and took it to Walter Wong. He spent 2 hours with me going over the car making a list of what needed to be done right now and what could wait a while. He knows what parts to buy used and what to replace with better than OEM. We went for a ride after he serviced the car and it drove like new. He said "This is why people by a Saab" and he was right. As we drove around his neighborhood I started to notice 2 or 3 Saabs parked on every block. He even has loaner Saabs. The amazing thing about Walter is that he tries to save you money when he can. Call him with your problem and see. Submitted by Todd O. I just bought a '99 Saab convertible and came to this site for mechanic info. Following the advice here, I made an appointment with Walter. The majority rules - Walter is awesome. I mainly just wanted an overall assessment of my new(used) vehicle and he was great. He spent an hour with me, going over the inside of the car and the outside. He opened the hood and explained all kinds of stuff and jacked the car up and inspected things. He even made me drive him around the block to troubleshoot some noises I had been hearing. It was well worth the $60. I now have a list of about 4 items I'm taking to the dealer for repair (only 1 major thing which is a faulty tire). The good news is, he said my car is in great shape - mechanically and aesthetically. woo hoo! Submitted by Kathryn M. After a year of trying different Saab mechanics another Saab owner highly recommended Walter Wong from Right Solutions. Walter is a Master Technician and I was most impressed with the talent, skills, and service from him and his crew. Right Solutions has been flawlessly servicing my car for 8 years, providing me specialized knowledge including tips and tricks to improve the life and get the most enjoyment out of my Saab. As an example of how much I trust them, I drive about an hour and a half just to get there. Submitted by CA
