    Guys, Mrs P @ K's '02 Cabrio recently died about 10 miles from home. Thinking it was a duff battery or alternator I went on a recovery trip to get it going again. Started straight away with a jump from the Aero battlewagon and swapped cars so I could take it home. Now the strangeness starts...

I was getting a low oil pressure warning at low revs and when turning right. Am...

    I must be getting paranoid. I went to a SAAB specialist to get advice about some turbo noise prior to buying my 80,000 mile lease car, and he's told me about a lot of other things I need to worry about! I thought these engines were bullet proof (my wife's 9000 has 190,000 on it and still going...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    A while ago, my car developed a mid range vibration. The local dealer diagnosed a tired front engine mount. Changing this made things better, but not perfect (the old mount showed no signs of failure). Over the last couple of months, it has got steadily worse. The dealer now commented on a...
