After the tech experts call today I figured I'd share the service history of my '03 9-5 Aero 5MT. The detail starts at 50,000 miles. Prior to that it was just routine service at the dealer. Since 2007 this has been maintained by a brilliant Saab independent who formerly worked at Charles River Saab – the first Saab dealership in the Northeast. I've always changed the oil every 4-6,000 miles so there's no point listing all of those. You can see that since around 150K there's been some significant stuff, mostly replacement of worn-out components. YMMV, but for those of you keeping 9-5s, this is some guidance about what's next. The work in the past 25K miles cost more than the car is worth but I don't care. I'm keeping this thing forever and I haven't found anything that I like as much.
