That's "Miles Per Gearbox" and very bad economy!

Surely that is NOT the Aisin-Warner auto-trans; we have over 250K miles on two of them.

The manual gearbox ?
Saab never could make a decent one.. Front drive can be very hard in the transmission as there is no long heavy drive shaft to absorb torque and shock.
They could try returning to the old rubber universals - but then they would be shot after 50K miles.. $8 to 20 in parts, 90 minutes labor..
Todays translation is $80 to $200 in parts, 3 plus hours labor !!

Ooooo very bad economy. At least you appear to be smiling about it. Must've been done by someone who fixes their mistakes.


C'mon, there MUST be a c900 out there with an even worse MPGearbox rating than that!
