Saabs are the only cars that I have always had a passion to drive. The Pittsfield team always know how to take care of me while I’m in town.

I wanted to thank you for taking care of my engine. Now that it’s fixed, it’s a joy to drive again. I know it was a significant expenditure of time for you so this is to let you know that I really appreciated it-every time I drive the car. I will sing praises of Performance Automotive to other Saab Owners I meet along the road. Your loyal client.
