The car feels taught, just like new. I also have had to get new tyres fitted as well (not from Saab) I got Uniroyal Rainsport 1's. I drove from London to South West wales in the pouring rain last night. what fantastic tyres. Quiet, great in the wet etc, much better than the stock Pilot Hx's. I love my car again. JD
