  1. New Member Introductions.
    Hello all; My name is Steve, I live in Colorado and have been searching for a Saab to be my new DD! I must say I love the look of these vehicles, their safety, performance, potential, and cargo space. I was hoping to get some advice from anyone on a few different 93's I'll be looking at/test...
  2. Saab Recommendations
    Hi there, I'm a young guy who grew up on Saabs (dad drove an 88 9000 5 door, mom drove 93 900 convertible) and has always had a passion for the classic style 900 turbos (but my true passion is in the 99 turbo...who's isn't??). I have an opportunity this summer to get some financial help in...

  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So, my current car (Fiat Panda 100hp) has it's MOT coming up and I was thinking about advertising it for sale afterwards and getting something much more comfortable (the 100hp is fun, but it's small and VERY firm). Anyway, there seems to be quite a few seemingly decent 9-5's available for...
  5. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi all, I'm looking to buy a Saab 9-3, 2005-2008 in years, 1.9 Diesel version(Linear or Vector, considering both), and have heard some horror stories about Gaskets, Sumps and general problems with the model in question, and its tarnishing my view on whether to purchase. I would appreciate any...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, In June 2010 i was tempted to buy a 2002 9-5 Vector Sport Estate. It seemed to good to be true. Interior was literally brand new along with the saab floor matts and both keys still had the dealership tag on. It had FSH from new until 88k and now has 92k. I serviced it in August and the...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi experts, I'm really really interested in buying a Saab 9-3 Diesel. It will not be brand new and have budget of around £5.5k max. It has to be a diesel due to fuel economy. after extensive browsing especially on Autotrader, my money would get me a 2002-2004 model with two variants 1.9/2.2...
  8. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hello Everyone, I am thinking of buying either a 93 or 95 (about 1 to 2 years old) and it must be auto. Could any of you give me any advice as to which is the best model, and should I go for petrol or diesel? I am looking to do about 15K per year and would be interested in some accurate mpg...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Dear All I hope you'll forgive my newness to the subject of all things Saab - I'm just buying my first 9-5 estate after years of Subaru Legacies. I'm looking at a 52-plate Aero HOT at the moment. It occurred to me while looking at the car - given the subtle badging on the 9-5, how do I...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I'm in the market for a new car and the Saab range has certainly caught my eye, specifically the 9-5 but the 9-3 is quite appealing too I guess. The main sticking point is that I only have a max budget of £2000, so I'm looking at highmilers. As I only drive about 3000 miles a year it's not...

  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    There is a well known so-called SAAB specialist based near Colchester Essex who are passing-off distinctly second hand shock absorbers as "delivery mileage". They are not! - by their own admission they are of unknown mileage and one of the units sent to me was so badly pitted that it has ripped...

  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    4 year old saab 900 with 88,000 miles on the clock requires gearbox replacement at £2400 pounds. According to Saab customer relations this may be normal wear and tear. In 35 years of driving, sometimes hard driving I have never had a gearbox that needed replacement. Saab - never again.
