Just kicked over 50,000 yesterday. Any bets on how many miles before the next problem creeps up? She's been wonderful for the last 10,000 miles...
It is not going to be the part, but the labor to get to the 35 cent part somewhere in the middle of the enigne compartment or behind the dash....some crazy gasket/seal or switch......Viscouse said:Gotta change yer sig!
I have 1500 left...I'm guessing the EHU goes, or the ECM. I wonder what the single most expensive part that can be swapped on the car is?
I agree, while my warranty doesn't run out for another 5 yrs or 70k miles (saab certified) my brothers 99 9-3 SE's ran out this past year. he brought it in and paid for an oil change and thorough inspection, the tech found a bunch of issues and had them all repaired prior to the warranty expiring.rotate said:Before your warranty runs out, take the car to a mechanic who specializes in Saab. Pay him an hour of labour and ask him to do a thorough inspection of the vehicle. Take the car back to the dealer and report the problems. It's very important to have documented problems while it was under warranty. For example, let's say your exhaust sounds a little rough. Your Saab dealer may say everything looks fine, but 3 months after the warranty runs out you find a hole in the muffler. More often than not, because you had originally reported the problem, they will either do the repair for free or give you a deep discount.
Interesting...rando67 said:I heard that some folks are having the dealership buy the car and then selling it back to them. This way it is considered a pre-owned vehicle therefore getting warrenty coverage up to 100k miles. If interested, then check with your dealership.
Just passing the word...
