  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    2 weeks ago my 9-3 TTID aero was rear ended and the insurance company have decided the car isn't worth repairing, new boot floor being the main reason its not economically viable to repair.... :mad: So I have now purchased a 9-5 turbo edition saloon from my local SAAB specialist service centre...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I knew this day would come one day but after 11 Saabs 2x99, 3x900, 1x95, 1x9.3 and 4 93ss I have moved on. From a hidous Orange 99 passed down from my Dad (saf 488m) I have loved them all. From their quirky looks and behaviour to the seats that felt you could drive round the world. They all...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well, as hard as it is I'm moving on. Today is my big day, trading in my TTID for a Nissan 370z. TBH whoever gets my old car is in for a real treat, I just don't have the time or can be doing with tyre kickers. I'm really going to miss my Saab, apart from the EGR faff it's been an awesome car...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    After 2 and a half years, nearly £5000 in repairs, I've finally thrown in the towel, after spending £550 getting my 04 93 2.2 TiD Arc through the MOT and thinking I've finally got the engine light to stay off, the damn thing lets me down within 10 days, rear brakes seize up, car refuses to start...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well come Saturday I should be getting my newer car (Jaguar XF), just a few thoughts on my Saab Vector 1.9 TID (2005) before I part exchange it. The Saab is far superior to the Ford Focus Estate 1.8 TD that it replaced some three years ago. I particular liked the performance combined with the...

  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It looks as though I will have to say goodbye to my beloved 1998 2.0 lpt auto Saab 9-5 After a successful trip to Saab Tech 2 weeks ago to fix a stalling problem, a few days later I got an almighty blue cloud out the back. It would have been ideal if I was James Bond trying to out fox some...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    After 2 months of torture owning a M93 Aero i can finally say bye as I've sold it. I've owned and loved Saabs for the last 4 years and this has been the biggest pile of s**t i've ever owned! Back in a 9-5 Aero and loving it again. Never known a car that was so fragile and had so many common...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Just a quick posting to say goodbye as I have part ex'd my aero . It was an excellent car from Mark Arnold and sorry to see it go. Nothing wrong with it but I didn't really fit. Shoulders rested on the headrest and head in the sunroof. Gone for a Skoda diesel with their vat free offer...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The sad inevitable day had arrived! Our little girl is now 3 months old and the Aero Convertible has to go, it just isnt practicle enough. I love the car to bits and i have enjoyed every day I have owned it! I am SO pleased I didnt go for the 3 series Vert or the A4 vert! The Saab has so...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well thats it my Saab 2006 93 Linear Sport (TiD 150) has gone back to the dealer and my whole deal has been unwound... there were just too many faults and problems... here's a little list : - Car wouldn't start on occasion. Several time the car would not start at all and I was forced to wait...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Finished cleaning my 9-3 Vector Sport 150TiD today, its going tomorrow. Saddest thing ive done, i loved that car. Changing it for a Passat CC. Hopefully next time it will be back to a SAAB (now hopefully GM are gone and it becomes a true SAAB again). I am sure the Passat CC will not be a patch...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well after just over 4 years (4 years and 9 days to be precise), I've parted company with my 95 Aero Auto. We've had our ups and downs, but then I have done 100,236 miles in that time, leaving it heading for 149,000 miles overall. I've had costly repairs, Water Pump, Crank Position Sensor...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After 5 years I've sold my Saab (the longest I've ever owned a car). It wasn't all plain sailing, but it never left me standing by the side of the road and thanks to you guys on here there was never any shortage of help/advice when I did need to fix something. Special thanks to Will and Leon who...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Yesterday I agreed to a sale for my fully loaded 07 plate 9-3 Aero saloon. I owned it from new and used a family discount scheme so I paid £24k with a list price of £30k! I had all the toys (sat nav, voice control, hirsch etc) and sold for £12k yesterday as I was that desperate to get rid of the...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After owning 3 9000's for over 10 years, the last a Griffin, i'm no longer going to own a Saab as of tommorow. Last November with Mrs Tonker having even more babies, myself now middle aged and getting fatter it was finally time for me to buy an estate. At the time buying a 9-5 was not only the...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Saab 9K & all parts now gone, am driving something smaller & far less powerful. Huge thanks for the help I have received from many of you over the past few years. Might be back in the future with a 9-5 Aero.
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well the time has come after almost 3 years of ownership to say farewell to my trusty 9-5, and, er, of course you lot. There have been some ups and downs over the years with the car but on the whole she's been a fairly reliable old steed. Reason for retirement? Well basicly we need something...
