1. maybe, check your PCV hoses for squishyness.
2. Odds are no, though saab has extended the warranty on the engine because of the sludgin problem it's nearly impossible to get them to own up. Without a service history you're **** outa luck.
3. Your choice, I prefer a trusted mechanic personally.

If you're worried about the oil being dirtier than it should be, just change it. Fully synthetic oil only, most of us like Mobil 1. I doubt you're gonna have sludge problems this early in the engines life though.

Oh yeah, death by sludging takes a looooong time. If the oil light comes on, STOP! Not that I think it will, but you don't mess around with the light of death. ;)
