    Guys, Just wondering if it would be good idea (or frowned upon) to bring a code reader to viewing a potential purchase? It could save a lot of time and possibly money!! Any advice greatly received. L
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've had my 9-5 Aero for about 4 years now (2000 W) its covered over 100K and I swear its nowhere near as powerful as it was when I acquired it. Now I remember reading there was a quick win about 'plugging' one of the pipes on the turbo system which kind of bodged something to give me my power...

    The GM financial news revealed earlier today has revealed that the Saab 9-4x won’t be seen until some time in 2010. Given that the 2009 Saab 9-7x is the last of that line (the plant that produces the 9-7x will close in late December 2008) it’s fair to assume that there will be a reasonable gap...

    Inspired by the halloween pumpkin filled Viggen, here’s another question for ya. How many other cars could handle a load of pumpkins, or a trip to Ikea, or haul a motorbike, a pub-full of beer, or a sofa, a lawn mower, or anything else you care to fit into its gargantuan rear deck………..and...

    I just received this photo via email from RJ in Utah. The photo was taken by a friend of his, Mason, with the following text included: <blockquote>How many pumpkins can you fit in the back of a Viggen? The answer is at least 25 with room for four people and the shelf partition still in. I...

    You can’t underestimate the contribution that motorsport can make to a car company. Engine development, suspension, fuel, safety - it’s the pinnacle of everything that makes up a car. Saab had a lot of early success in rallying but eventually motorsport got too expensive for a little company...

    The month of hatch loving has technically ended, but I couldn’t let things slide without adding these photos to the site. I actually got these in a little while ago, but the usual whirlwind that is blog management (or in this case, mismanagement) saw these slip through the cracks. What makes...

    You know I love the Saab 9-5, but there was a timely reminder today as to why it needs to be replaced with a new, bigger model - and soon. That reminder came, of all places, from Chevrolet. Over the weekend, GM let loose one of the worse-kept new release secrets with confirmation that the...

    A great little owner’s story here - a subject matter we’ve covered before and one that I’m sure just about every Saab owner can identify with from one time or another in their lives. This comes to us from Richard P: —— I’m sure there are a hundred threads at TS on this subject, but I...

    Ah, the joys of having Easter Tuesday as a day off! I hope you all get the same. ----- This has got to be a BRING BACK THE HATCH special: <blockquote>New York State Police say someone stole a statue of Ronald McDonald and they want it back. Troopers say they're investigating the...

    Another follow on from Bring Back The Hatch (part 1 and part 2). Gripen got his OCD going and looked into some historical numbers on Saab cargo capacity. The C900 and 9000 saw some steady capacity, which dropped when the NG900 came along. Capacity in the modern SportCombis is pretty darn...

    These pics, sent to me by Ivan, just go to show that incredible carrying capacity of the classic 900. Bring back the hatch!!! ----- Motorbike and plank ----- Cement mixer!! ----- Ride-on lawn mower?! ----- A night's worth for Al Aero! ----- That's a 3.5...

    Some interesting text that accompanied the ad: <blockquote>A sport sedan should give you high performance, coupled with a high degree of creature comforts. The Saab 900 gives you that. It also gives you something that no other sports sedan gives you: Enormous cargo capacity. The 3-door...

    More important. What performance upgrade did he bring you. I got a JR filter , and cds for the multiplay. Well it's still got 2 years on the warranty I had to be sensible. Wishing everyone a good New Year when it comes.

    Here's a thought.. One of the things I miss about the new Saab models is that they don't have the exhaust note of the old ones. I test-drove a 900 8v Turbo the other day and was reminded how g-o-o-d they sound. It's kind of a V8 noise (wasn't the original Triumph unit designed parallel with a...
