Wifey's car have been going pretty strong with a few repairs on top of services through the years. Some repairs I did before failure due to the knowledge of the weak spots. So far she have NOT had to tow the car to the shop once.
Now it's time to drop the oil pan at next oil change and reseal the oil level sensor. Most of the repairs have happened LONG after I have had to do the same repair on many other 9-3s. I always wonder what make the same part last up to 100K more miles on one car but not the other.
