What our clients say

Initially I took in our Saab for service but now I've taken my other cars too. Amazing competence and integrity as well as good pricing keeps me coming back. Attitude and customer service is the best bar none I've experienced. Steve W.

Patterson Performance is the "go to" shop if you have a Saab! They know their stuff when it comes to Saabs (and I learned that they are one of three people between Raleigh and Chapel Hill who have the computer system necessary to do many services on them). -- I learned this the hard way when my Saab broke down last week. Their pricing is fair. I wish they had more convenient hours, but when you own a corner in the market, you can do what you want. Their hours are 8-5 Monday through Friday. They were relatively quick considering the fact that they had to order a part for the car. Eric and Kathy bent over backwards when I rolled in there on a Friday afternoon desperate to have a car over the weekend (we only have one vehicle). They worked really hard to fit me and and at least diagnose my car to see if it was a quick adjustment on the computer to get my car working again. Unfortunately it wasn't. They have two ASE Certified Master Mechanics on staff. This is a huge plus and something you don't come across often. Overall I liked the shop. I'll use them again. If you have a Saab in Raleigh, Patterson is the place to go. Don't waste your time with other shops. These guys have the equipment and expertise to get right to the problem and fix it quickly!

Based on the fine, very thorough, and fairly priced service Patterson has given my Saab cabrio, I felt completely comfortable buying a used and beautiful Saab Combi. I know that these strange and wonderful Swedish cars that have captured my heart are in very good hands there. This is a rare garage staffed by the rarest sort of people—real car guys. Whenever you go there, you're likely to find some interesting machines: Saabs, of course, but also Alfas and Citroens among them. Patterson Performance is the ONLY shop for your Saab, and every visit will be interesting. PP is reason enough to make Saab your set of wheels.

Top quality work, fair pricing. Been a customer of Patterson for many years, they are honest and reliable. Never "create" repairs just to make money. Work is done right the first time, I've never had to return for something to be redone.
