Questions About 1999 Saab 9-3’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saab's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Saab? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 9-3 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 9-3's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Saab 9-3 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Saab. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
