10,000 mile lubes won't keep you in warranty, or keep your oil fairly clean; do it every three. Drove the 9-5 on 03-27, Demo model now on my lot, yuppie enough, until some yuppie larvae breaks off the too cute pax side auto cup holder and I bone him three-hundred bucks for a new one. The 9-5 is a "light" turbo, with 3-4 Lbs. boost tops. Horsepower doesn't move heavy objects, torque does. What do you people do anyway?
