    Vehicle : Saab 9-3 Aero

    Trim : Aero

    Engine : 2.8 Turbo V6

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 62000

    Default

    They say they are good for 100k miles, but that depends on what oil has been used and how often serviced. But yeah 9 times out of 10 you will get chain rattle on start up, but its not unheard of for them to just go without any notice.

    I have a 2006 2.2 direct with 42k miles oil changed 6 monthly, but for piece of mind I will be having the chain and tensioners done at 55-60k (unless I get rattle before). But if you do require it doing its not cheap at dealers, if you fancy a drive to wolverhampton there is a 2.2 guru Benny and he is alot cheaper and alot better than the dealers. Drop him a pm.
