This causes your Saab to lose power and underperform, at VAST Saab specialists we are able to use the latest Saab equipment to carry out a manual regeneration process to clean out the particulate filter. This process will bring your Saab back to normal running; At VAST Saab specialists we can carry out a regeneration process when you book your Saab for a service of at an extra cost of only £60.00.
