Yeovil‘s approved SAAB Service Centre

TR Autos was started back in 2008 by Tommy Butler, in 2012 Dave Cumberbatch joined as a partner and together we moved the business to its current location on Houndstone Business Park in Yeovil. We both pride ourselves on excellent customer service and high standards of workmanship.

We are a SAAB approved service centre with many years of experience working on cars from the 1980’s up to the present day.

If you don’t own a Saab then please do not hesitate to contact us as we are happy to tend to the needs of any make or model of vehicle. We have the facilities and equipment for anything from replacing a light bulb or wiper blade to carrying out a major engine overhaul and diagnostic checks.

Following the recent closure of Astley SAAB we are now the areas leading SAAB approved service centre and supply Saab approved ORIO parts.

Bob Butler

engineer (Retired)

Bob is Tommy’s Dad and can be regularly seen lending a hand at TR Autos. Although officially retired having spent 42 years working for Normalair Garrett (latterly Honeywell Aerospace) in Yeovil as an Engineer Bob likes to come in and help out and keep the supply of cups of tea at full capacity! He started Tommy’s passion for SAAB’s off at an early age because he owned 99’s, 900’s and 9- 3’s. Bobs approach to diagnoses and repairs differs slightly to Tommy and Dave’s because of his background which makes him a great help in the workshop. His experience also makes him one of the best 99 / c900 gearbox rebuilders.
