Mark, I had a 86 9000T for 11 years and 160k. Never had a lick of trouble with the turbo bearing. I followed SAAB's maintenance schedule using Penzoil Turbo 10W-30 and always let the car idle for the recommended 20-30 secs before turning off the engine. wrote: > Hi folks, I was just wondering if I could get an idea of what type of > durability to expect from turbo on my Saab 9-3.
