Grrr! 100,000 miles is the "make or break" for a Saab. > Yeah, I can see that. I'm going to ask them while I'm there, if while they are rooting arround doing the wheel bearing, if they spot anything that needs doing, to let me know. If it isn't too pricey might as well get all done at the same time. Suspension is next after that in a few months, if they don't find anything urgent (shocks, springs, bushes), and get them to do a brake and clutch fluid change, and fit braided hoses. The maybe if the next couple of MOTs go OK, think about the getting it reprayed and the small bits of rust bubbling sorted. I really love this car. When I'm coming out of a supermarket and see it sitting there, it just just great. Only thing I could see that would cause major probs would be if the the gearbox finally gives way, instead of just popping out of gear (used to be just one and two, now occasionally does 3 too). I'll see what I get for a loan car from higher Oak Saab tomorrow. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot.
