Saab turbines are among the longest lived in the industry. If the previous owners took care of it, it should last a long time. 215K is still a long time, so it wouldn't be totally unexpected if the turbine bearings did give it up, though; a lifetime of synthetic oil would be a big plus. All 7 of my Saabs were 99s or 900s, so I can't comment specifically on the 9000s. --------------------- John R.
