Alan is very busy, so general service needs to be scheduled in advance. But he'll respond to emergency fixes very quickly. He's an avid troutfisherman and probably even listens to you guys. He has a good assistant named Harry who likes to tell stories. Alan is dedicated to keeping old Saabs going forever, which those of us in the "drive 'em 'til they drop" school of thought appreciate. There are a lot of us up here.

Bright and reliable. Has great fishing stories from American's pristine fishing holes. Always tuned to NPR!

Alan specializes in Saabs. He's great. If he can fix it for $25 instead of ordering a $200 part, he'll tell you. He's a curmudgeon, but lovable. He hates Japanese cars. He loves hot spicy foods. You could do worse.

Have purchased 5 Saabs of various kinds over the last 21 years, and Alan has worked on all of them (as well as 3 other vehicles purchased from others). That should tell you how much he can be trusted. If something isn't right, you move to the front of the 'fix-it' line and he makes it right. He is not cheap, but delivers full value. He doesn't fix things that don't need fixing; he will find the most economic approach to a problem. He's honest and up-front but does not suffer fools gladly.

Alan Scott is the owner of this shop, and his highly professional mechanic employee is named Paul. Both of them work on the cars. Alan is a family man and both men are very customer-centered. Alan's business model is mechanics and repair first, but he also services autos that he sells. His weekly trips to the regional auction in Connecticut have brought many fine vehicles into our town, including my own. He will carry a range of cars that are locally popular, including Subarus, Toyotas, Volvos, Saabs, Jeeps, and a few others. Within my memory Alan's shop was certified for Volvo and Saab repair by the manufacturers. Alan is a straight-shooter and will always tell you more than one way to approach a problem, if there is one, and give you the informed choice. He warrants his repairs against defects in materials, workmanship, and as regards their own work. If you buy parts through him, he is likely to charge a small but fair markup, and he will not use parts you procure unless by prior arrangement. Alan Scott has been my mechanic for over 20 years. My 'bias', if I have one, is that he is simply the best. He will perform work and give you benefits that you will not commonly find available even in the dealerships. He also sometimes has a low-priced car in stock suitable for you to buy as a first car for your grown kids. Get to know Alan and let him know your needs and desires ... you won't regret it!
