Questions About 2005 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saab 9-5? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 9-5 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 9-5 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 9-5's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Saab 9-5’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Saab's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
