My trip computer is starting to sound like my mother in law.
It always tells me there is "low coolent" even when its full.
It sometimes tells me there is low washer fluid even when its still half full.

Now its telling me i need to get a service done.
95k on clock.
To be fair i probably should get it looked at.

What is included in a 95k service and what is the cost?
Should I go to a Saab Dealer or will an independent do?

Im going to do the simple stuff myself (as soon as it stops raining).
Ive got a saab engineer contact i hope will be more cost effective than throwing money at the dealer and wondering what they actually do.
