About Us
Our Premises
Service We Deliver
  Full Workshop Facilities
With five factory trained technicians and the latest tech2 upgrades that cover the latest 9-3 and 9-5 Saab models, we offer servicing and repairs to factory standards using genuine Saab parts and procedures. Despite this huge investment in equipment and expertise, our labour rates are considerably less than your local Saab main agent and we believe we offer the best quality and value available.
At Simply-Saab we make it our business to understand your needs and your vehicle's needs. We have an approach that you will find very different from most other garages and car dealerships that you may have used before.
All our technicians are attending the Saab Academy to gain regular updates on the latest Saab vehicles being produced. We also do all our own gearbox and engine work in house, and do not just exchange units when you may need a far smaller repair than replacing the whole unit. Please call our workshop manager Steve Shute on (01179) 406121 for a quote or information on the services we provide.

New and Used Parts
  We have over 6,000 sq/ft of shelved new and used parts all maintained by a computerised stock control system. This is one of the largest and most comprehensive stocks of Saab parts anywhere in the UK.
We dismantle over 500 Saabs per year and have contracts with most major insurance companies. This helps us maintain good stock levels of most parts for all models produced between 1982 and 2004. It also helps us maintain our remarkably low prices.
Our used parts are mainly taken from late vehicles that are in perfect mechanical condition, and typically cost around 66% less than a new Saab part. All parts are inspected, cleaned and covered by our no quibble 6-month warranty.
We also carry a huge range of new Saab spares and we are backed by Saab as an Approved Impress Stock Agent. We are usually able to offer a discount on any part that is not specially ordered.

Mail Order
  We can deliver most parts within 24 hours anywhere in the UK but we also send Saab parts daily to any part of the world. We have been supplying Saab parts to far-flung areas of the globe for over 15 years and this operation now accounts for a substantial part of our turnover. All parts are sent through Parcelforce, they can be tracked on-line at any time and, once again, all parts are covered by our 6-month warranty. Please see for more details.
Car Sales
  If you're looking to purchase a used Saab, why not contact us with your requirements? We normally have a selection of excellent quality Saabs, each covered by our own warranty.
Many used cars sold in the UK are covered by insurance-backed warranty schemes which are often carefully worded so that the policy will not pay out in the event of some common problems. Simply-Saab have taken a different, more transparent approach and, apart from punctures or accident damage, we will repair your car free of charge in the warranty period. At Simply-Saab we take pride when preparing all our vehicles for sale because we want you to return for your next Saab in the future. Please take a look at for further details.
We are also able to offer a selection of late Saabs direct from Norwich Union, General Accident and other major companies at huge discounts. If these are of interest to you, please contact Kevin Brinton on (01179) 074298. These vehicles are prepared to the same standard and are covered by the same warranty we offer on our own vehicles, but they do not appear on the Simply-Saab web site.
Company History
  South West Saab was started by Andy Caddick in 1987. At this early stage it was based in a glorified chicken hut on Park Road in Keynsham. At the time there was very little in the way of used parts or servicing available to the Saab owning community in Bristol. Andy bought a few older Saabs and started advertising his parts and expertise in the local press. This became the main part of the business and after 2 years Andy was working exclusively on Saab vehicles.
Over the following years and with constant investment in the premises, staff and equipment the company grew. Today they have a 16,000 sq.ft purpose-refurbished facility in Brislington.
They have also attained the ELV certificate, that allows them to de-pollute vehicles and reclaim materials for recycling. All manufacturers will have to be responsible for a larger percentage of raw materials used by 2007 and Simply Saab will be at the forefront in helping Saab to achieve this target.
The typical stereotype image of a back street garage is something Simply-Saab have worked hard to move away from. On visiting their premises, you will find a large, modern workshop with resin floors and equipment that is well up to the standards you'll find at most main dealerships. The reception area has a clean and contemporary feel with excellent fresh coffee if you are waiting for work to be carried out on your vehicle.
