Subject: Re: turbo dead at 42.000 mls

According to the lifetime of a turbocharger, my service (recently changed from a brand-(official) service to a free SAAB - specialist) told me, he had to change the 5th low-pressure-charger at 9-5s this year. It should be a new problem, after that the former chargers indeed lived very long at least. For a normal service I never left my (official) garage under 500 Euros. Thibaud: You got luck with Your cheap service. Keep it! But it is not the service-prize I critizise: What I cannot accept is the missing reliability of large components. If Yoou ask me for the next brand: Small (only the length is small) car: Fiat Multipla Diesel Large Car: Renault Avantime Just because of their exceptional designs. Thanks for replying! Wolfgang
