Questions About 1999 Saab 9-5’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Saab's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Saab? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 9-5’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my 9-5's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 9-5’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Saab, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
