  2. Saab Recommendations
    My 2004 9-5 sedan, at 108,000 miles. is starting to cost more in repairs than it is worth, and I'm beginning to look for a replacement. But it needs new rear shocks right now. Can anyone suggest inexpensive shocks that won't screw up the handling and ride? I'm more ocncerned with shoirt-term...
  3. New Member Introductions.
    Hello all, Just a quick hello. I have always admired Saabs, particularly the facelift 9-3s, and hoped to have an excuse to buy one. I'm starting a new job in about three weeks, which I'll initially be driving to, a 140mile round trip each day. I need to buy something better on fuel for this...

    Hi all, I'm new here and yet to own a Saab. Hopefully this will be soon and as such I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm in the UK and have found myself in a situation where I need a car quickly and on a budget (up to 1100) as my car is kapput. I'm after something solid and not overly concerned...

    Hi all, Sorry for the long post and thank you in advance for your answers. I recently joined here to get some advice from owners on Saab ownership costs and any particular areas that i may need to be careful about. I was looking for a diesel motorway car for commuting but didn't want to...
  7. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Does anyone have experience of budget winter tyres? Are they a false economy and is it better to shell out the extra cash for Nokian/Vredestein etc. [235/40 R18 needed]. Pete
  8. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Some advice please. I have a three and a half year old Saab 93 150TDi Vecta Sport Auto Sportwagon . Last one before the new bonnet. Now retired and budgeting so 10,000 a year(miles that is not money) so need to economise now that a full set of tyres are required. Had three sets on front...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone tried replacing the dash speakers in a 9-5 with something slightly more decent? Having suffered with the sound quality from the AS1 system for nine months now, I've finally cracked. And realised that I should have bought a Vector with the AS2. Having spoken to various folk, the...
  11. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    As above really... I've had a quick search but couldn't see anything obvious - in short, is there a consensus on this? My old LPT needs a new pair of fronts. I've previously run Michelin Primacys but I'm trying to keep the car on the road with the minimum of expenditure and therefore looking...

    If you go to the bbc link below, scroll down to the video clip and play, you will see a very sad sight: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8012492.stm :( I wonder how all this will work? Surely every car over 10 years old with enough 'get up and go' to get up and go on a final trip to a...
  13. Saabscene: Performance
    Hello To everyone out there, We all know about the credit crunch its everywhere sadly it has convinced us 1 saab is better than 2 so my heavily moded and gorgeous gm900 turbo has now gone :( and the good ladies taladega is next to go and we have purchased a "sensible" 9-3 2.2tid on a 51 plate...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am due to change the front tyres on my 03 Saab 95 Aero (225/45 R17). Being rather cost conscious, I am actively considering buying budget tyres. I only use my car for tottering around town (usually to Tescos, dropping kids to school, etc.), for the odd trip on the motorway and a trip abroad...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all I'm in the process of making my old MY93 Aero road-worthy again. One of things that really does need doing is the shocks, but I'm not prepared to spend £300+ on a new set. Are there any budget shock options that will at least get me away from the feeling that the car is balancing on a...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, firstly may I congratulate every single member who has ever posted on this forum. Without your input, sites such as these can't exist & without them imminent SAAB owners (like myself) would be stuck fishing around in the dark trying to get answers to their seemingly dumb questions...
  17. Saab News
    I had a few emails come in yesterday telling me about big articles in various car magazines relating to Saab. In the UK, CAR Magazine has a big feature article on the Turbo X and Per Eklund. In the US, Automobile Magazine has a big feature article, as well as a big, glossy fold out...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Does anyone know for sure how the budget will affect the VED for our 9000's? I believe that for a 1996 car the tax does not depend upon CO2 emissions, but on engine capacity?? I paid £180 in Nov 2007 so I'm guessing I'm in Band F (current system). I don't know for sure what CO2 rating my 1996...
  19. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Looking at the budget today, not good news but well buried so unlikely to make the headlines. Maybe I'm just being pessimistic. I guess a lot of our SAABs are in band F (pre 2006, >186gm/Km CO2) and we pay £210 VED. That all changes for 2009 when we wil enjoy £400+ VED. :( I suppose the...
