I also decided to have it fixed. The mechanic promised to do a good job, so I'm not ripping off the buyer. I've been driving a 2000 Subaru Legacy L wagon since last week. It has 42,000 miles on it. There are some things I like better about it, and some things are not as good. Overall, I'm happy. I guess I won't be hanging out in this newsgroup much any more. Saabira (that was her name, which is Arabic for "patience") was my third Saab and probably my last. Thanks for all your help. -- Tom Reingold Noo Joizy
