That's not a bad price for the work. Scandia have an excellent reputation for Saab transmission work. Rob is a real rocket scientist. As far as I know, they are the only Saab-exclusive shop that offers this service (with warranty!). Consider how much you have spent to maintain your car's value. Chances are you will be hard pressed to find another Saab in better condition for less. You are in good hands.
