I don't agree with this, nine months is too long even if the mileage is not much. Remember, what kills the oil is all the Ash, Water, and ignition byproducts that get deposited in the oil every time you start the engine. It really depends on how long you plan to keep the car; SAAB folks like their cars and like to keep them around for a long time / miles. -- Remove "NOSPAM" from address for direct e-mail ####### # #### # # # # # # # ## # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # ## # # #### # # #
