    The car has done 55,000 miles and by pulling and pushing the back wheels there is play. Im told by a Saab garage that it is a common fault for the bushes to do this and normally 30,000 miles will show that they need doing again. The arms come with the bushes. £200 total is the cost for both...

    I've just changed the eng oil & filter, and air filter before the service reminder was shown. Fuel filter will be done next week or so. The change was based on mileage and done early, ie before the reminder was shown, it's at about 43% intermediate. Can the service interval reminder be reset ?
