I've just purchased my first Saab 96 which i've wanted for ages. I'm certainly not mechanically minded or pretend to know anything about cars i've just always like them and finally bought one! So i'm looking for a reliable garage to take it for servicing and repairs. I live in the South East in Kent so any help would be much appreciated.

Saab when they designed the 96 mainly made aeroplanes so when building a car, just went to the market at bought some standard bits in. This is why some parts have imperial nuts and bolts (british brakes) and some have metric (german engine). The engine is also simple and relativly easy to work on, just dont drop anything. It also makes it a very cheap car to run.|
