    Hi everyone Just purchased a Saab 93 1.8i 04 and the thing sounds like something from Star Trek, I was told when purchasing the car the noise was the clutch slave cylinder so I replaced this and the noise was still present. Also the lifter on the reverse doesn't work ! it just slides into...

    Hi all, new to the forum and just curious if anyone can lend some advice. I'm considering getting a 9-3 but I'm on a bit of a budget (£2-3K, I know that any car in that price range will not be completely reliable, I'm just searching for the most). Which model would people suggest would cost...

    Hello all, Newbie here. I have the above mentioned car and considering using it to commute to a new job which will be 10K per annum (rather than the weekend use it gets now). The mileage is low for the year I guess and the car has been serviced every year but I was wondering that bearing in...

    Hi, As a 1.8i owner, I have had confirmation from my dealer that the cam belt needs replacing at 36,000 miles, ouch! As a high milage driver, currently 24,000+ per year, that is going to hurt. Is the Vauxhall Vectra subject to the same frequency? To compare, my son has a '93 Clio, and the...

    I have just learned that there is now available a software re-map for the 1.8 injection engine. Apparently it should improve low speed throttle response and smooth out power delivery in mid-range. I m told that it will increase power to 125bhp, but may affect fuel consumption slightly. Sounds...

    So, did anyone buy the 1.8i? If you did, how is it?

  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm back now from test driving a 9-3ss 1.8i Vector, and a Skoda Octavia vRS Estate (probably write something about the Octavia in the non-Saab car park). Bond Street did have a 1.8i "entry" model in the showroom, so I had a look round that before the test drive. No point test driving a Vector...

    Had one of these as a loan car today from Ian Allen Saab. This car had the new ( standard? ) electric steering and sports suspension. Wow what a go kart! Excellent steering feel and weight- i drove back via a twisty route as the handling and grip is that good. Can the Aero be better than...

    As mentioned in an earlyer thread...I order my 9-3 1.8i last year in november. Yesterday my dealer called and told me that my car won't be build due to the ordered Bi-Xenons. So here is the story: The 1.8i will not be shipped with the Bi-Xenon headlights. It also doesn't have ESP (I knew that)...

    Anyone have any comments about the new (at least here in Sweden) 9-3 1.8i, 122 hp? It is a little cheaper (about £1,500), but I am not finding much information about the engine here or the other specs. I take it that it isn't turbo and the lightest turbo was a 150 hp, 1.8t engine. What have...

  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    It seems that in Germany they start to sell 9-3 SS with 1.8i engine. Yes no turbo. 122bhp, 200km/h top speed and 0-100 km/h 11,8s. Price 2000 euros less than 1.8t. Wonder if this engine is going to be available in other countries ? See Saab Deutschland
