Alternative Automotive Pro Mechanics for European vehicles

Before Saab stopped making cars in 2012 it was producing automobiles with some of the highest engineering and performance standards in the industry. Saab Automobile AB was manufactured in Sweden as a project to design a small, reliable automobile that could offer engineering and amenities prized by European drivers. The first production model, the Saab 92, was launched in 1949. With all that history and precision craftsmanship it is understandable why you want to keep your Saab even though they are no longer in production.

Crazy noise and then smell burning rubber, never good. Got it towed to Alternative Automotive and they diagnosed, fixed and got it back to me for less than I expected! I trust them.

This is the best auto repair/maintenance shop in North County. Forget the dealerships who pace themselves while repairing your car. Alternative Automotive gets your car done in a reasonable amount of time and Daniel handles all your questions with professionalism and efficiency. I don't have to worry about whether it was done right since I haven't had any problems since going here. I definitely recommend Alternative Automotive since Daniel listens to my concerns and then addresses them. He even replaced the battery in my remote!

Absolutely would not take my car anywhere else for service. All the staff including the manager Stephen were kind, polite. My residence is 30 min away, so having a calm and quiet lounge was a plus. It's worth the drive to get the best mechanics to work on your vehicle.! Gigi (*I legally changed my name)
