Subject: Re: How is the winter on SAABs?

SAABs are made for winter conditions. Unless your Saab is specified for some special market you should not change anything except for the usual service intervals, but check the grade of the motor oil you use (you should use synthetic, especially in the winter). There is no need for warm up, in fact Saab recommends not to, but avoid charging the turbo until warm.
