Although you may want to let it idle for an extra 30 seconds before you shut the engine down - just to let the coolant and oil remove some of the heat. I live in Las Vegas where the summertime temps often exceed 100 degrees, and I have had no problems with the SAAB. -- "Our eyes and hands and feet will give us the same assistance in doing mischief as in doing good; but it would not therefore be better for the world, that all mankind were blind and lame. Arms are not to be laid aside by honest men, because carried by assassins and ruffians; they are to be used the rather for this very reason." -George Campbell (1719-1796)
