  1. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    As it says, really - the latest edition of CAR, March (photo of a red Audi A1 on the cover), just dropped through the letter box, and should be in WHS in the next week, has a favourable, if light on detail, spread on the rally to Luton a few weeks ago. Page 144 on. Maybe not worth buying just...

    I'd like to draw everyone's attention to this poorly written ill-informed article on the topgear.com website http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/saab-sp...deal-2010-01-27 Note really sure where Paul Horrell is getting is information, but to claim that Saab have always made 'dissappointing' cars...
  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, M97 Oil light does not come on, just noticed this. So, it could be one of them small lamps within the display, broken wire, or duff sender unit. How do you get to the sender unit, seems a pig of a job :wall: From under the car, or from above? Does the unit fail with lamp on or off...

    My thanks to Jimmy J for scanning and sending through a copy of the AMS article that I covered earlier today. As mentioned earlier, I couldn’t find a copy of it on the Swedish AMS website. It seems that it’s a print-only story at the moment. You Swedes are going to have to go down to the...
  5. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    There was a fairly poor article in the Guardian on Saturday, a typical rehash of a Which report. SAAB gets a bad review in the manufacturers listing (the article doesn't make it very clear, but that table is over 8 years) What is interesting though is the luxury car 2 year results - where he...

    UPDATED!! — Automobile Magazine have slotted a post into their online blog covering Saab’s moose test. I’d imagine most visitors here would be familiar with the moose test, but just in case….. <blockquote>In addition to the usual battery of side-impact, head-on, and offset crash tests...

    Michael R sent me a link earlier in the week, to a big feature article on Saab published in the Swedish paper e24.se. It’s a long article, way too long for me to try and translate using my dodgy web translation tool. Thankfully, ctm has come to the rescue!! When you see the length of this...

    Seth Bengelsdorf, the editor for the Nines Magazine, the newsletter for the Saab Club of North America has been recently featured in an article on MSNBC online that relates to Saab’s European Delivery Program that I have previous mentioned here on Saab History. This is an excellent story and...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    This month's Car Mechanics magazine has a 4 page article on buying a used 9-5. It does seem to dwell on the problems associated with ownership (PCV, SID, Sludge problems, etc).

    <blockquote>Sweden is a verdantly green place, from its gamboling grass plains, to its dense forests to the faces of people who dare to eat there. Generally, I'm in favour of trying the local delicacies in a foreign country, but a plate of hair-rings (sometimes spelled “herrings”) or some...

    With the Geneva Motor Show opening, Saab is in the news with its BioPower vehicles and the news of a 2.9l diesel being developed by GM for the European market. A week or so ago I mentioned a news tip I'd received about a new 9-5 in MY2009. Dagens Industri has a news article that gives us a...

  14. Saab 95 & 96 Two stroke and V4 (1949 - 1980)
    This month's PC finally has the article by Danny Hopkins about Ken Dover's beautiful 92B. The article is loosely themed on "The Viking Invasion", linking the actual invasions of this part of the world over 1000 years ago with the more recent invasion of Swedish cars... Anyway, it's a nice...

    They seem to like Saabs in the Independent - article about the Sonett here. Interesting explanation of how the car got its name and the last paragraph just about sums up Saab and GM - looks like my mid-life crisis will be with some other sports car Cheers, Andy

  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    A neighbour knocked on my door and told me about this months "modified classics RETRO CARS" magazine and that there is a very good 7 page article on modifying classic 900's. A trail of boot rubber smoked as i made my way to W.H. Smiths.I have just read the article for the second time and its a...

    I've got the full report at Trollhattan . Some interesting excerpts. For me the day's connection to Saab seems entirely appropriate. In my view this slightly oddball Swedish car company has long been about spirited performance, a risk-taking attitude and a willingness to be different. That...

    Source: http://www.iht.com/articles/2005/02/21/business/saab.html DETROIT Is the Saab 9-7x the first sport utility vehicle from Saab, or is it a Chevy Trailblazer dressed up to look Swedish? The 9-7x, which comes out this spring, will be roughly the same size and shape as a Trailblazer -...
