Not sure exactly... it's an ebay mobile. It's currently sitting about 500 miles from me. He says that the clutch is fine until it gets warm, and then you have to pump it up to get it to function.. He was told by a local saab mechanic that it was the slave cylinder. I dunno.. it's a decent car for cheap, and I need something for my sis-in-law.
