have you looked at the owners manual? My 06 Vibe (toyota engine) owner's manual says to use dexcool. I thought it was going to be toyota red.

Well SAAB was bought by GM so I suppose they want you to put GM Dex in there now, but if you can get the old SAAB coolant I would stock up on it.

My 04 9-3 uses an orange coolant, but saab sells their own orange coolant - imported IIRC. Ill find my gallon and try to post a pic when I get a chance. Info is scarce. And even if it is dexcool... nothing wrong with that in and of itself... so long as youre on top of what gets mixed with it. In engines that were deigned with dex in mind, it seems to be fine. IIRC, saab coolant is 'lifetime' fill :rolleyes: JMH

The one I saw at the dealership used blue.
Really? None of the ones Ive seen have had any blue coolant in them... not that they couldnt have this, its likely G12 like BMW uses... just seems strange for the 9-3SS to have it. JMH
