Framingham is Charles River's sister dealership. You may hear bad stories about Framingham from when they were Gaston Andrey - I have not heard any bad things about Framingham since Charles River took over. I shopped Framingham but didn't buy b/c they didn't have any used stick shifts in stock. I thought the sales staff was great, otherwise. I agree with you about Saab Nashua North. I bought my 900 S from them, but a couple of bad service experiences later (they were straight dealers with me, but annoying lack of attention to detail) have convinced me to take the car to Chambers for service. The Parts guys at Chambers are good, too. If you already have the Chambers connection and it is convenient to your home or business for service, I'd say go with them even if you pay a $500 premium or so. My two cents. -C -- **** Note our new e-mail addresses **** This message was sent by either: Chris Thurrott - wodin at worldnet.att.com **OR** Kris D'Anci - lokki at worldnet.att.com > From: "Mmmanic" <Mmmanicnopsamail.com> > Organization: EarthLink Network, Inc. > Newsgroups: alt.autos.saab > Date: Tue, 15 Feb 2000 21:22:59 GMT > Subject: Re: Framingham(MA) Saab any opinions? > > I bought my car at Saab Nashua North in NH because their prices were > amazing - but the service was horrific.
