you'r absolutly right! I worked at a VW dealership and thought I knew it all--well Saab has kept me young!!!-- You can never stop learning things, and Saab has been a college education for me- and about those other models- when at VW Portland for engine school there was a class on the new porche auto adjusting clutch which hadn't been able to put it back together by lunch- so guess who would pay that bill if the car were at the dealership???
