It depends on how you look at it. Parts and labor are usually more expensive on luxury cars like the Saab. However, the frequency of repairs required is much lower, so you end up saving money in the long run. And Saabs tend to last a lot longer than other makes. Plus they are among the safest cars on the road, nearly always ranked in the top 3 for safety. -- Wink Just like any car - doing repairs yourself can be less expensive than going to the dealer - IF you have the know-how. Somethings are simple and some are very complex. There's a wealth of information that is Saab specific at www.Saabnet.Com A well maintained Saab should last at least 200K miles and a lot go much, much higher (My 1991 900T just hit 255k!) so if you add that into the $$ equation the total cost of ownership goes down compared to cars that are designed to self destruct around 100k miles.

Finding an independent Saab specialist is an excellent way to control repair costs. A lack of familiarity with Saab's by most mechanics can lead to improper or unnecessary work being done which gives the impression repairing them is more expensive and troublesome than it really is. Saabnet is an excellent resource for locating one.
