Defender Mechanic near Stamford, CT

I was wondering if anyone knew a good mechanic in the Stamford, CT area who can take a look at a D90 that I'm considering for purchase. The seller won't let the car travel too far, so the place has to be close to Stamford or the mechanic will be willing to travel to the car.

I appreciate any information on this. Thanks.

Thank you. Dawson is on my radar screen, the problem is the distance. The seller won't take the D90 that far and Dawson doesn't make house calls.

Is there anyone closer who can give it a good evaluation?

Stamford to Fairfield is only like a 20-25 minute drive. Tell him to go piss off and keep looking.

Did the seller supply you with the mechanic he has been using during ownership?

I'm with you and that's about where I am at this point.

Thanks for the reference. In fact, he was also recommended to me by Dawson at Classic 4x4's. I've had extensive chats with both of them and can only say that they are both top notch Rover resources.

is this the black 94ST at Subaru of Stamford? I haven't looked at it but know it has been for sale for at least a few months. I haven't had any work done at Bedford Greenwich Auto (theroverman) but I've been there--Ronnie works on a lot of Defenders. His shop is probably a twenty-five to thirty minute drive from the dealer.

Dawson at Classic 4x4 has worked on my truck for a couple years. He works on a lot of Defenders and I would trust his opinion of a truck as well. He is right off I95 so it would be a similar 25-30 minute trip as long as it isn't rush hour.

That's the one. As I mentioned, neither Kevin nor Ronnie were available to inspect the car at its location. A positive thing about this search has been discovering the quality Land Rover technicians in the area. Kevin Murphy came highly recommended and agreed to travel to Stamford to inspect the vehicle. He's very thorough and super nice guy. Kevin's shop is in Southport and he can be reached at 203-417-5800 or kevinmurphy995@comcast.net
