Parts and labor are only more expensive if you choose to take it to the SAAB stealership. Independant SAAB specialists get no more or less for their labor than any other mechanics (including domestic). I buy SAAB parts online for about the same as what you would pay for like parts for domestic cars. It is only if you buy the parts at the dealerships that you get screwed over. > > One large item like a transmission could pay for the warranty alone. > True, but the chances of the trasnmission needing to be replaced (vs repaired) are slim.
