My Saab has been great!! 157,000 miles and never any problems!! I have changed the oil every 5k with original Mobil 1 0-40, changed transmission fluid every 30k and spark plugs every 20k ( plugs cost $35 and 15 min to change and I use only OEM NGK plugs). I have ceramic brake pads and have only changed brakes once since I mostly drive in manual mode. I replaced the coils at 100k and I keep the air filter clean. I use a K&N. Bottom line, maintain it before it breaks down and before scheduled intervals and treat it right and it will treat you right In return!!
