If the box changes up and down smoothly and does not whine and groan,then dont worry,even if it turns out duff there is a plentyfull supply of second-hand boxs,as to the clutch pedal,I run a 89 9k and the clutch is a little heavier than my ovlov,never had trouble with the one on the auto!!
I had a 1990 SE turbo auto. Box finally failed @ 126k miles. Started to play up about a couple of thousand miles before though - changing erratically as I remember. Cost nearly two grand (this I do clearly remember! ) for replacement box and fitting. Still see the car about and its done about 100k on the replacement now. So next car I went manual. (96 Aero ) box still needed rebuild at under 100k! Can't win
I had an SE 9000 auto around 8 years ago I bought it with around 135k on the original box, it wouldn't go into gear at the lights a few times and was bad changing down I got an auto box service (oil change and adjusted)took 1 hour and cost about £45 and it never gave me another problem I kept the car until 200k and it was still working ok
Thanks for the advice, I bought the car. It's done 100K with full saab history and 2 owners all for £900 quid so I took the chance. I've spent a fare bit on replacing manual gearboxes and clutches in the past.
