Subject: Re: SAAB 900 Rebuilt Transmition


I got a used tranny for my 85 900T and the price was $1500CAN or about $1000US. The rebuilt unit from Saab $2400 or about $1600US. I got only a 1 month warranty with the used unit and it cost $1000 to instal!!!! So far so good, but it's only been 3 months. In retrospect I would have bought the rebuilt unit, the warranty was 6 months or a year William T. Brown III wrote: > > Sweeney, > This seems fair.
