Needed new front & back brake pads, oil leak, a couple of screws missing from air filter. They told me that I needed a new battery (my one failed the test), but they wanted to charge me $170 parts & labor for it. I will probably go to Wal-Mart or Sears. Lovely car - but boy, it is costing me! -- Posted using the http://www.autoforumz.com interface, at author's request Articles individually checked for conformance to usenet standards Topic URL: http://www.autoforumz.com/Saab-60000-Mile-service-ftopict122908.html Visit Topic URL to contact author (reg. req'd).
