In article <01bed5bc$d80f4580$d12b00c3nopsamult>, equipe.systemenopsamir.be says... I looked back at the manual and SAAB does mention that a polyurethane coating is used for protection. I would guess that this is what they are referring to. I just traded a 85 900 Turbo in for the 9-5. While many people would suggest that the tar can trap water and cause rust the only places which showed rust is the welds. In the US the rust warranty is only 6 years, not 10. I wonder if this says something about the amount of salt we use on our roads..... I agree with keeping an eye on things! > I noticed the same thing on my father's 9-5 and my 9-3.
