Swedish Motors Gulf (Verified) 3617 Black Rock Turnpike Fairfield (203) 254-2555 Email: Click Here OMG what a find! My daughter has a 99 9-5 that she loves, but the cost of repair here on Long Island is crazy! What's worse, it's not trustworthy. The so-called experts to which she has been sent were either totally incompetent or highway robbers - I'm not sure which. She has spent thousands on work that caused worse problems - like disconnecting her alarm system, and leaving the wires unwrapped, which caused the car to shrt out and conk out. The "fix" of the alarm cost $275, but the cost at a dealership to diagnose and fix it was almost $1000. I stopped a man in our town who was driving a Saab wagon that was in great condition and asked him who he used, and he sent us to Barney at Swedish Moters in Fairfield. At first we thought it was way too far, but he raved about the place so much, she figured she try him for a non-emergency maintenance she knew had to be done. Although the trip can take 3 hours if traffic is bad, it has been so worth it!! Recently her passenger window fell, and she needed to fix it ASAP, but couldn't take it up to Fairfield due to job demands. She took it to a local guy, who told her he needed to replace a broken glass and a new transformer(?) for a total of between $400 and $500. In a panic, she called Barney and told him what was going on. He said in all his years he had almost never seen a broken glass and most likely it just snapped 2 rollers which were $12 parts. Barney was right - he fixed it for under $50, and did a whole slew of other work that the car needed, and the total was less than what she would have paid for the window "repair." I can't remember the last time I felt I could just say to mechanic "Just do whatever you think it needs" and trust him to do the right thing. But with Barney we can - and do. He has been an absolute Godsend. We and our neighbor who recommended him in the first place, can't find enough good things to say about him. For us he is a 75 mile, sometimes 3 hour plus drive, but he's so worth it!! Submitted by EM S. Update on swedish motor works yes the it was sold the new owner is much friendlier and the same mechanics are still there.they have up graded their technolighy and are very much involved with saabs old and new Submitted by Christine B. This is an update to the Swedish Motorworks listing you have which I believe is many years old. The original owner sold the business several years ago. Not sure how they have kept up in their mechanical department since. I do recall one of their mechanics did not know what the proper steps were to do regular maintenance.
