    Hi, Anybody had experience of claiming for clutch replacement under new car warranty ? My wife's 10 month old 93 cabrio has burnt out it's clutch with only 7,000 miles on the clock and my (helpful) dealer is advising that Saab UK may well dispute the claim leaving us with a bill of £1,400...

    Auto Motor and Sport in Germany are claiming an illustration of the new Saab 9-5 in their latest print edition. WooDz was kind enough to take a quick snap of it with his mobile phone and shoot it into my inbox to share with everyone. Here it is. Click. This is actually pretty similar to...

    I received a number of emails about this overnight. And one of them was from Left Lane News themselves! Hey! Publicise our image, but you can’t use it yourself. That’s not a direct quote, by the way, but it’s effectively what they were asking. They were also saying that as far as accuracy is...

    Mitsubishi will be showing a prototype Lancer 5-door vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Automobile online say that they’re channeling a Saab classic: <blockquote>It gets Evo-esque headlights and hood, a matte black grille treatment, and unique 19-inch five-spoke wheels. The rear...

    The backstory: Subaru took out a full page ad in a magazine here claiming to be the only carmaker in Australia with a range full of cars rated at 5 stars by ANCAP. Turbin and I took issue. —— Subaru finally got back to me today, and as most of you guessed, they claimed they were OK as their...

    Aspiring million-mile Saab owners are reminded that they only have 12 days left to get their mileage up into seven figures in order to claim their free Saab 9-5 Aero. Back in December 2006, SaabUSA gave million-mile Saab owner, Peter Gilbert, a free Saab 9-5 Aero in recognition of the...

    Last week I wrote about an ad that Subaru had placed in a magazine called Royal Auto here in Australia. It’s the magazine of the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria. I hadn’t seen the ad at the time of writing, but Turbin’s now scanned it and sent it to me. Click on it to enlarge. Why post...

    I’ve just heard from my insurer and been told that the claim I lodged on the accident with the Viggen has been denied. They dropped a letter in the post yesterday outlining the reasons why, but I’ve asked for that letter to be faxed to me as it wasn’t in this morning’s mail delivery and I...

    Like many here I have a Warranty Direct policy, in my case the Gold cover level. It specifically insures "shock absorbers, upper and lower wishbones, bushes, springs" blah blah blah. When I took my car in today for its (additional) 6,000 mile oil and filter change service I asked the garage to...

    The things we do with 10 spare minutes... ----- When we were all told that Peter Gilbert, the million mile Saab guy, was going to receive a new 9-5 Aero for his trouble, Saab USA stated that anyone else who has owned a Saab from new and crosses the million miles mark this year can also...

    I have a cracked windscreen and wondered if it will affect my insurance no claims when I claim for a replacement. Also, are there any problems that I may encounter when getting it replaced due to having a rain sensor fitted? Thanks

    My 2003 Aero has been going well but has now developed a problem where it will "miss" the change from second to third, revs just rise to rev limit then it "catches" and continues up the box. Only second to third and does it in all modes, gentle or hard acceleration, and even when usings the...

    Hi guys It looks like my head gasket (GM900) is leaking again! It was retorqued about 2 years and 10k miles ago and now at 57k, it's started again but a little worse than before. There's no mix yet... water in oil or oil in water but I guess that will come. I have a warranty with Warranty...

    Just had a very interesting, but depressing, call with my insurance company. Last week sone unknown truck driver (we suspect it was a council refuse truck) swung into the public car park where my wife parks her Clio and mashed the rear drivers light unit, bumper and quarter panel. As the area...

    Hi, yesteday my Aero wagon starting misfiring at low revs and stopping when on idle, sometimes. DI cassette was the problem, 75k and not a peep till now.

    I wonder if any one has had experience of taking a “50/50” insurance claim to court? I was hit by another car back in Feb this year, and he’s refusing to accept liability (no witness either). My insurers have said they will take it to court as long as I will support them as a witness, and the...

    Many thanks to words of advice from everyone. After spending most of the past week on the phone to the ins.company, they have agreed to pay out on the rear screen, with no compromise to our policy. They have insisted on sending out an assessor - it is going to cost over £1000 to do the repair...
