hello, sorry I don't have much/any experience to share on Saabs with auto trannys, but if you are anywhere reasonably near the Milwaukee area the place to go is Gesch Enterprises in Butler, WI (NW edge of Milwaukee). and BTW, it probably should be your last AUTO-tranny Saab, but by no means the last. just get a manual tranny next time (or ASAP if you decide to sell this). manual (5 spd) is what the Saab was designed to have, and they ROCK!!! -- Nate t.
