Hi, I'm 3 weeks into my first SAAB and generally quite enjoying it.
Managed to knock a fair bit off the purchase price because of the SID Pixel problem and a few other minor niggles. Fixed these within 20 minutes of getting home thanks to the posts here so big thanks are due already!
So, I'm coming to the end of my 2nd tankfull of Diesel and want to check all the various warning functions etc are working correctly, so I decide to run the fuel down as far as I dare.
The owners handbook tells me to expect a fuel warning light, and a STOP FOR FUEL warning on the SID when there's just 3 litres left.
So tonight, with the needle barely in the red, no sign of any warning lights or SID messages and the SID telling me I've got around 120 miles remaining, Imagine my surprise when I ran out of fuel!
After turning the ignition off and on the fuel warning light did come on (so the bulb works!) -a bit late.
Anything I can do / check to ensure all sensors etc are functional? (the fuel gauge and SID MPG / Miles Remaining etc seem to work OK, but evidently without that much accuracy at the critical low end!
From Completely Full to Completely Empty I got 698 miles which doesn't seem bad - is this comparable with others? (I've been deliberately curbing my enthusiasm to see how much MPG I can get)
Oh, one other thing - I am pretty disappointed with the handling - especially if cornering on an uneven surface - seems to throw it completely - is this normal (I have read quite a few posts complaining that the roadholding isn't that good) or d you think I might need some new shocks?
I've got a whole bunch of questions on the Audio side, but I'll stick them in a seperate post!
