Your 9-3 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 9-3 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2002 Saab 9-3 to maintain its performance power. Follow Saab's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2002 Saab 9-3 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Saab 9-3 may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates.
