Your 9-5’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Saab, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 9-5 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2000 Saab 9-5, you help maintain your vehicle's 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 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 help repair all of your 2000 Saab 9-5 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your 9-5 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Saab 9-5 drives.
How much does it cost to fix your 2000 Saab 9-5 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
