After using saab replay and dealing with the owner Ben Rono, I would like to recount my experiences and hopefully keep people from having the same. I was recommended to Saab Replay by a family member, so I figured it would be okay. I took my car in because it was overheating. No prob it was the thermometer for the exaust fan replaced no prob. Then I took it in for the 60000 mile service... They took 3 days and charged me out the you know what.... No problems....They recommended that I have the crank pully seal replaced, no problem. I took it in to have it replaced and 3 days later they replace the coolant pump. Ben(the great one) said it was a misdiagnosis on the crank seal, what they thought was an oil leak had been a coolant leak. Great! all is well that ends well right. Wrong... 3 months after the pump was replaced I started leaking coolant...took it in they said nothing was wrong, took it in cause the belt started squeaking, tightned the belt...then one month later, still leaking coolant the belt started squeaking again. So Now I take it in and they say it is the oil leaking from the crank seal which is lubricating the belts and making it squeak and btw they had no idea why my car would be leaking fluid... They even tried to tell me that it was my imagination. A company full of incompetents. I brought my car then to a reputable dealer and a mere 4 months after that major service found the my front breaks were running on 10% I had a hole in my radiator hose, needed to replace the crank seal pully, the water pump was loose and the bushings needed to be replaced in the alternator.... what Saab replay couldnt even comprehend specialty saab service diagnosed in 1 hour and fixed in 5 hours.
Dont use them they are incompetent and Ben is a pompus jerk!
