    Saab Scene newbie, I'm afraid. Not sure how I missed it having driven a '02 9-5 Aero to the moon and back. Just traded in the old blue 9-5 Aero manual for, guess what, an -09 9-5 Aero manual. Late year manuals being as rare as rocking horse......... teeth, was pleased to find one with low...

    Had my 9-3 Sportwagon serviced at JAMSAAB yesterday. Never been there before and when I picked the car up I found out they dont take debit / credit cards. "No problem, just send me a cheque in the post" they said. What a refereshing change for someone to run their business on trust, when so few...
