You never know, be careful! They told me at the SAAb service it was OK and then my engine jammed. The crank shaft had factory made grinding burns and I guess the higher temperature did it. My car was just past it warranty and when I called them (Trolhattan, Sweden) they told me they didn't care that it was a manufacture defect. No warranty - no compensation. I had to dish out DM 9000 ( = U$ 6000). So, watch out you're on your own out there. Next time buy Volvo.
