  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    This is the first car that I have owned that I've taken to 100k, usually I get bored and move on. Last week I hit that milestone. But seeing as I've only just sorted out the EGR it's gonna stay with me for at least 12 months. I hope I don't eat my words but I reckon it's running better than...

  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I bought a ’94 900S 5 door hatchback with GM V6 and 100k miles on the clock for AUD$5000 last weekend. I had planned on buying an old Mercedes, but it was way too dodgy! So this is my first Saab. The car is in excellent condition both externally and interior is immaculate. It appears as though...

    Hi Just for a bit of info really - drove the car over 100k last weekend so this weekend went armed (between the rain!) with Torque Wrench / Gasket etc and re-torqued the head bolts. They wern't amazingly loose - but I would say that the normal culprits (right hand side) were probabily only...

    Hi Saabscene My 9-5 2.3 Auto arc is coming up to 100,000 miles ( It’s a 51 reg) I have thought of a px but those nice people at Reading Saab are only prepared to give me about £4 and a half K against a new one. I have decided therefore to drive the car until the great scrap yard in the sky...
