Re: Burst Radiator - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I've been feeling that way about two of my Saabs, a 2000 9-5 Aero and a 1997 900 SE, but my feeling is that it's worth it to fix them. You don't have to do everything at once, and a lot of the parts listed, especially brakes and tires, are normal wear items that will be due in a few years even on a brand new car. Try a junkyard for a DIC and a radiator. The valve cover gasket is a 15 minute job in your driveway. Ball joints are even very simple and cheap on a 9-5. It feels overwhelming sometimes looking at my list of what needs to be done, but it sure feels good to get things checked off, especially if they're noticeable, like fixing my sticky throttle cable last night.
