What’s the Importance of Your 2008 9-7x’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your 9-7x’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Saab 9-7x transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Saab 9-7x transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 9-7x isn’t working at all.

2008 Saab 9-7x Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saab's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Saab tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 9-7x’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 9-7x is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 9-7x transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Saab 9-7x’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
