What to Know About 1989 Saab 9000 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Saab 9000 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 9000 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 9000 maintenance. Just follow your 1989 Saab 9000 maintenance schedule!

Saab knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 9000's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Saab 9000 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Saab 9000 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Saab 9000 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 9000. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1989 Saab 9000 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 9000 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Saab 9000 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 9000) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Saab 9000 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Saab 9000 running newer, longer. To learn how often Saab recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 9000, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Saab 9000? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Saab 9000 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Saab 9000 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Saab 9000's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Saab 9000 services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Saab 9000? You know your Saab 9000 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Saab 9000 to high mileage oil? If your Saab 9000 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Saab dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Saab 9000, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
