The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 9-3's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Saab, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 9-3 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2011 Saab 9-3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Saab's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2011 Saab 9-3 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 9-3 might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Saab 9-3 drives.
How much does it cost to fix your 2011 Saab 9-3 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
