  1. Saab Reviews
    Not sure if this is the right place, but figured I'd share my data. Unfortunately my brother recently erased almost the first two years of ownership during which I racked up quite a bit of mileage between my old job and ex-girlfriend taking it on a couple far weekend trips while I was out of...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all - new to this forum and new to SAAB ownership. I have just bought a 2005 9-3 2.0T Aero convertible. Its done 75k miles but had no service since the 54k one, so I reckon its due a 72,000 main + interim service. I'm handy with a spanner so don't mind doing some of this myself, but...
  3. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi all Hope this is the right place to post this! I have a 9-5 Aero estate, 55 reg, that I really like and have owned for nearly 3 years. It's been happily reliable, although I do have 'issues' with the DI and parking sensors at the moment. Thing is, since I bought it my annual mileage has...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Evening all. Had my 93 for about a year and a half an for the last 2 months the clutch has been slipping intermittently so decided to get some quotes for the change today. 5 garages called ranging from the cheapest at £700 to about £1000!:eek: Is this about right? All are wanting to change...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all I have a Saab 9-3 Vector, 52 plate, but MY2003, 2.0t petrol (175bhp) with 66k miles on clock. I did look all this up before I bought the car a year ago, and tried doing a search now but can't find anything relevant, but was under the impression that the 72k mile service was a biggie...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I owned a 96 900 for 11 years and took it from 30k to 187k before I traded in for a Citroen C3 18months ago. Bottom line is it's FAR too small now we have a 9 month old and I'd love to drive a Saab again. Have set my sights on a 2005 ish 9-5 auto estate due to budget. Two estates have caught my...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    With the memory of a failed CIM on my 2.2TiD 9-3ss last month (I have the most expensive for four types as well, ouch) I am in the market for a comparable age 9-5 Aero (02/03). Leafing through the forum I can see lots of lovely info on the major repair jobs that the 9-5 can throw up. :grin...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I now have a healthy dent in my passenger side front wing, thanks to someone using my car as a brake whilst they were reversing out of a parking space :-( It was whilst my car was parked up overnight, so didn't see who it was and no details were left (how surprising!). Before I go off and get...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    If I end up with a newish 9-5 with a satnav fitted (not something I would choose, but lots of second hand ones have them), I need to think about maintenance costs. I usually keep cars until they become troublesome - 5 years or more. I occasionally use a garmin I3 which I updated with all of...

    Hi, Does anyone know how much it will cost to have the AUX enable with tech2 at my local dealer? Cheers
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm a new Saab owner, and have arrived at first service time on my Aero TTiD. Dealer is wanting to charge £285 for the first sercvice compared to a local Bosch approved at £100 less than this figure. How much are the dealership likely to knock me back at the end of my 3 year PCP on the cost of...

  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all Just after a guide / comparison. How much should I be paying for a service on a 9-3 year 2000 LPT typically. It has 94,000 miles on it and is due now. Also, I have heard Aeromotive SAAB in Batley are pretty good, any others around West Yorkshire, preferably closer to Bingley...

  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Good morning all, just had my MY04 93 aero serviced at our local dealer, (Lincoln Saab) intermediate service which i believe is little more than an oil change, £260.99 inc vat in your wide experience is this good, bad or average, we don't have an independant nearby so i'm tied to them really...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I was ringing round for 72k service (include cambelt) for 9-5 1.9tid and rang Reading Saab 3 times over the last month, 1st quoate was £700! a month ago, 2 weeks a go quote was £615, then last week £418, which I jumped at especially as I've had a previous 9-3 serviced at £350 for 32k service in...
