The Original Volvo and Saab Specialists, Texas Automotive Performance was opened in 1996 by Swedish immigrant Tomas Larson. He comes from not only the country where Volvo and Saab originated but from a family with a rich history in Volvo/Saab service and Motorsports. We operated as a dealer alternative before the close of Saab North America, giving us the opportunity to work along side the dealers as we have refined our techniques through the years. This means that our employees have the same training and tools that would have been found at a full sized Saab dealer. Don't get the run around from our imitators, we are a one stop shop for all your Volvo and Saab needs. From parts and service to computer reprogramming we have you covered here at TAP.
I continue to come back to this repair shop for my Saab five years later. Tomas, the owner, is great. They address any issues on the car without concerns, but also complete the maintenance to keep it running. It's difficult to find individuals that work on Saab so this shop is so helpful, but also the integrity is unmatched.
Thomas, the owner, is great!! I have take my Saab here several different times and each time they have been extremely helpful and fair. Unfortunately, I live in an area where individuals are not familiar with Saab's. I found this shop on a trip to Houston while visiting family and I am happy that occurred. They have been honest and trustworthy. In a field where that is not the norm, it is truly appreciated! Any owner of a Saab knows that they can be finicky, but we become fans of the vehicles. This quirkiness at times can be challenging at times, but my experience has always been positive with this company. Thomas has gone over and beyond to assist me even when I was over 500 miles away. He truly is a wonderful person and I am forever grateful for his willingness me in having my car in working order.
I have not had anyone work on my car since I moved from Los Angeles. I was looking for a remote key for my Saab, and they told me they are available now instead of trying to sell me other products.( That happened with the other place I called). They gave me the price and had it available right away. I also had oil and fluids changed It took a while to get it done which is probably more than enough time needed, but they were busy and I did show up unexpectedly. An easy place to recommend
I wouldn't trust anyone else with my 1998 Saab. It is important to me to have someone who is extremely competent because I can't find a new car I like as well. They really know Saabs. They are honest and fair. Recently my car lost the belt and I took it to a shop near me. They gave me a quote on some other work that was twice what TPI charged me and they were wrong about some things they said needed to be done. TPI o explains things in an intelligent but understandable way. I give the highest marks to TAP!
