Yes, Saabs are complex cars. I wouldn't like an incompetent mechanic near the complex control system of the car. I've also had some niggling 'check engine' problems when I fist bought my car secondhand about 6 years ago. But by perseverance it all got sorted out. Definitely the best car that I've had, I still can't believe it's a 10 year old banger.
