Subject: Re: outrageous major service maintenance costs for 2002 9-5 Linear Wagon

Hi everyone, I am in the same boat with my 2001 9-5 Aero. I called my local SAAB shop (Mile Hi Body Shop in Denver), where I have been doing business off and on since 1978 and they said the service consists of changing plugs and filters, checking a number of items and flushing the brake lines and transmission. They quoted $750 and then backed off to $600 when I said I had the 5-speed manual box. So the math says the auto tranny flush and fill is $150. I also got a recall notice for a bracket on the gas tank. Need to go to the dealer for that. Charles drew wrote: > Hi everyone, > > I'd like some second opinions....
