Subject: Another DI Cassette failure problem


My 2001 Saab 9-3 convertible has had a repeated problem with the DI cassette. I purchased it used at around 55k miles and have had it for apx. 3 years and it now has 79k. In that time the DI cassette has been replaced THREE times and just went out AGAIN. I know these are not the most dependable part, but surely 4 in 24k miles is more frequently that usual. My mechanic hasn't told me of a catalytic converter problem that has been mentioned here and the engine light has gone on each time (so thankfully I haven't been stranded or experienced any of the other horror stories mentioned by some here). Is this just an absurdly expensive repair that I should expect as a result of being a SAAB owner or does anyone know of anything else that might be an issue that would lead to this repeated problem?
