Your 9-5 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Saab, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 9-5 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 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 quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2008 Saab 9-5 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Saab could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Saab 9-5.
Is normal to wonder whether or not 2008 Saab 9-5 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable.
