    do privately owned import repair shops honor warranty repairs...problem is recommended fix it an issue due to 3 cylinder packs being on top along with 3 spark plugs and other packs and plugs look like would be major disassemble to get to...also dont know where the vacuum hose is that goes to intake manifold since the saab v6 is not traditional set up under the hood as other vehicles...no way of knowing if vacuum hose is bad without being able to find it...unable to locate repair manual anywhere on computer search for this vehicle to purchase..seems like anything newer than 2007 saab 9-3 is a 2008 saab 9-5?
