Hi, > I remember hearing that the TCS system on this age of Saab was problematical > and the best thing to do was to turn it off not use it at all, as repairs > are very expensive and not uncommon. if you have no problems with it and feel comfortable with it, leave it on. if you notice something strange like the TCS takin action too fast then just turn it off. a TCS that can be turned off cant be problematic :) unless you insist on having it. at just 66.000 miles there shouldnt be anything big coming up at you yet, depending on driving style and road quality you might need new shocks or engine mounts in the next 40.000 miles but if there is nothing wrong with your car, just keep on driving it and have fun! and dont forget to remove ANY rust as soon as possible, and check your tires for balance/correct pressure and make sure that your brakes are working properly. just the usual things and do frequent oil changes with new filter at no more than 10k miles interval and dont run your car hard from cold starts, wait until the water is warmed up and then wait the time it took for the water to warm up again! (then the oil should be warm enough) and you can fly :) bye simon
