#17 of 19 belt tensioner failed?
Mar 06, 2009 (12:25 pm)
Hi All, I have a problem with my 2003 Aero. One day she became trembling, shaking and giving diesel feeling from smooth running...during the cold days. Sometimes it goes away but most of the times remains. One of the SAAB mechanic told me to change the belt tensioner another said its normal. Well I don't really want to kill her risking not to change it. If you heard anything about it let me know please...thanks. S

Any car will break down if it is abused/driven hard/not maintained. I had a 1999 Camry (used) and got over 150K miles on it before I sold it. My uncle also had one and he is still driving it. It has over 200K on it with no major problems. Some people think just because its a Japanese car it is bullet proof. Not so. I think they are more reliable overall than anything american car though.
