  2. Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I just bought a 2007 95 TiD Vector Sport estate that appears to have an electrical problem. I noticed the car was sluggish starting after a day of not being used, I ran some tests on the battery and discovered that the radio and amplifier are pulling 1.6 amps constantly from the battery...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Been told by my garage that there is a current drain of 0.11 Amps when the car is locked and everything is off. This was found when they changed the battery as the old one (7 years old) had died. Said that the drain should be no more than 0.04 Amps. Drain can be stopped by removing Fuse F40...

    Hi, I have naughty thoughts on buying a 9-3 Turbo X. I didn't know the car even existed until yesterday. Could you please tell me what the general/real world running costs are like? I am looking to buy a car that is cheaper to run than my current non-Saab and have a fear in my head that this...

    Saab has published preliminary details about the all-electric 9-3 scheduled to enter production early next year. Photos are not available, but the reborn Swedish automaker promises the main difference between the battery-powered 9-3 sedan and the gasoline-burning model that entered production...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi - I'm in need of some new wiper blades for my 2003 9-3SS. I know the current ones are 23" long, but I'm wondering whether wiper blades listed as only fitting vehicles from 2007 would still fit an older Saab, or did Saab change the connector/clip in 2007? I'd like to get some flat wipers like...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, I find myself in quite a quandary with my trusty, at least thus far, 1999 9-3. I need some input as to whether to fix it, or if it's time for a replacement. At 106K, it apparently just shot itself in the transmission. Not sure how it happened, but something tore a hole the size of a...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'm working on fixing up a 96 Saab 9000cs and I'm getting what seems to me to be an unusually high leakage current of around an amp. Does that sound about right for these cars or do I have something not shutting off like it should. Seems to low to be a short circuit or light on anywhere.

    If you go to the SaabUSA website right now and hit ‘current offers’ there doesn’t seem to be much on the table except for customer loyalty cash, which is paid to owners of post-1994 Saabs. Current amounts for that are $1,000 for Saab 9-3 models and $1,500 for the Saab 95 and 9-7x. That’s what...

    Following the Saab Festival in June, Saab Sweden were busy hosting media and dealers from all over the world. The main focus for the media, of course, was the new 9-3. But dealers got a look at future products and every one of them that I’ve ’spoken’ to so far states that the stuff that’s...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Ok so sat in the car, happily listening to the radio for about an hour, enjoying the sea view, came to start the engine and zero battery power available, fortunately lots of available helpers were about, so normal service was very quickly resumed! When I had more time later out came the...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, Thinking of getting a bigger car for my expanding family & am tempted by a 9-5 Estate (currently have a 9-3 SS). Does anyone know whether any significant changes have occurred under the skin, or are they mostly cosmetic. My wife is dead against the looks of the latest model (I agree it...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Whats main diff between engines. Is the 9-3 a later evolution of the 9-5 or is it completely different. Do latest 9-5's still have same engines or have saab started migrating 9-3 ones into 9-5's.

    I just picked up on a comment on stating that the current 9-5 still uses a derivation of the Triumph-designed slant 4. I was strongly under the impression that Saab were now using the Saab/Lotus-designed, GM-paid-for L850 engine in their cars. Having had a look at Saab's UK...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Everyone I have picked up a '91 Saab 9000 CDE as a runaround whilst mine is in dock - it's my first Saab and its a wicked car. Anyway I have a small problem with my nearside tailight - no current . Fuses are fine but I have checked the light tray connector block, so its nothing to do with...
