2005 Saab 9-5 Drivetrain Service

2005 Saab 9-5 Drivetrain Service

Your 9-5’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2005 Saab 9-5, 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.

Saab 9-5 Drivetrain Repairs

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2005 Saab 9-5 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Saab 9-5 may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Saab 9-5 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2005 Saab 9-5? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
