    Hi Just purchased a Fjord Blue 9-5 Aero Turbo4 as a replacement for my Alfa 159. Despite having owned over 30 cars this is my first SAAB (lusted over a 99 Turbo for enough years though). It joins a few old classic cars including a Dolomite Sprint (vague engine connection there I guess). It is...

    I have just had my 1985 Saab 90 MOT'ed by Motorvation near Tonbridge/Tunbridge Wells in Kent. I honestly cannot praise them enough. I am really more than happy with every aspect of their service; Chris and his colleagues are extremely helpful (in person and by email) and friendly, give loads of...

    I've had very good work done by Emmett at Bromley Minis. He works on Minis but is a hard core Saab enthusiast, and would be a fantastic source for anyone needing classic Saab help, especially 99's and 900's. He did extensive engine work on my 1993 9k Aero and it was top notch, absolutely fault...

    Hey all Finally rejoined the Saab club with a purchase of a 9-3 1.8t Sportwagon Vector Sport ('55) yesterday - our last was a shiny new 9-3 SE back in '01 and we have had all sorts in the middle. Great car and very clean bar a rather tatty drivers seat where the bolster is worn and in one...

    Recently bought a '03 Aero Hot Estate (love it) and took it to main dealer in Canterbury (I dont recommend this btw) for a once over. Not happy with their response or attitude (tried to charge me 6 quid for cleaning the wheels - not deep clean but sponge and soapy water type clean!) so took it...
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all Had my 05 reg 9-3 for 3 weeks and it has died! Just been towed home from the local supermarket by a very nice RAC man. The engine will turn over but then slowly cuts out and there is no throttle response at all. He reckoned that it was the main fuel pump. Said that there was a pre-pump...

    Hi all, I recently bought a 2000 3.0T V6 Saab 9-5 auto estate from a dealer in the Medway area (Maidstone Kent), who to be frank saw me coming. Having had it briefly looked over by a mobile mechanic i'm told it requires big ends and possibly crank shaft replacement depending on the damage...

    Any recommendations? I live in Hither Green (SE13), I don't have a spare set of wheels so the car would have to stay in their garage while the job is being done. Somehow I don't really trust the "mobile refurbishers". I think a good blast + possible repairs from kerbing scratches and at least 2...

    This car was running until June when the brake master cylinder seal went. We didn't need it any longer and I have not had time to offer it before, so the battery will be out now too. Its light blue, pretty clean on the outside, does need a new headlining and you need a cushion on the driver's...
