      You nailed that one.

      Actual conversation:

      Saab owner - "How can it cost $1500 to replace the alternator?"

      Mechanic - "We have to pull the engine."

        11 years ago, I bought a used Saab from a dealership in Marin County and drove it back up to Mount Shasta (about 4 hours north of San Francisco.)

        I spent $4,500 on the car.

        And I'll tell you, I loved that frickin' car.

        About a week after buying it, it needed a new half axle.

        Because it's a Saab, nobody wanted to work on it in my sleepy little town.

        Finally found a guy. He did a good job. Problem solved.

        Whoops.

        The fuel pump went out.

        And accessing the fuel pump took a mechanic who really knew Saabs.

        Uh oh...

        The alternative was next. And yup, just because it's a Saab, everything costs more.

        Blimey...

        The power steering takes a fall.

        Cha-ching, cha-ching...

        A few more problems later (and well over $5,000 invested to fix the damn car,) I sold the bugger for a measily $750. (To a guy who, by the way, put in another $3,000 before getting rid of it himself.)

        Now, whenever I see a Saab on the road, I cringe. They are my kryptonite!

        So yeah, the tag works.

        Mark
