Saab turbo replacement

Asked by Max Oxlade

I have been told that the turbo on my 2000 Saab 9-5 might give trouble around the 100,000 km mark and that if it does it would require an expensive replacement. Can they repair the unit instead of replacing it?

The trade puts the turbo life at 100,000-150,000 km depending on how they've been serviced. If they've been well serviced they will last up to 150,000 km. The word is they can't be rebuilt and a replacement is the only real option. A new factory-supplied turbo costs around $2200 fitted.
