    Love my 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T convert that I have owned since 2012. Have had quite a few of the "Saab" problems over the last 5 years of ownership. Just now fixed several problems that have taken me about 2 years to fully resolve. Finally resolved difficult coil/code P1312 issue, failed fuel...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    On Saturday morning I set off with a friend to Cambridge.. The actual destination was The Imperial War museum at Duxford on Sunday. Thats a run of about 225 miles from where I live. My car didnt miss a beat and averaged 56.3mpg, which I am more than happy with. I kept to 70 - 75mph on the...

    Hi Crew, Terrific forum you have here, lots of good info with expert help! :) The Saab in question is a 2008 9-3 linear 1.9TID manual convertible. I don't actually own the car, it belongs to a friend. Lots of power from a small 4 cyl diesel! UHP common rail is certainly the only way to go!! :)...

    Hi there everyone. I'm a very long time SAAB fan because my Dad had a lovely racing green X reg 900 Turbo in the 80's and it gave me a lasting memory. I've had 4 SAAB's (all 93's) with my last being a 2008 Aero TTID which I've loved and cherished. Have used the forums before to much use with...

    9-3 1.9 Diesel 8-valve vector sport saloon 2004 Was out last Friday on the other side of town. Started the car to drive home and the 'Battery Not Charging' info message came up, along with the warning light. Decided to risk driving home as it was only 2 or 3 miles. Got back OK Next morning got...

    I've always liked SAABs. I've wanted a 900 for a very long time, but due to some complicated family circumstances I just took ownership of a 2003 9-3 Linear Sport Sedan. My daily driver up until this point has been a 1983 Jaguar XJS, which is currently being stripped to bare metal for a paint...

    I joined a couple years ago, but never introduced myself. I was a new SAAB owner and just getting the lay of the land. Today, I was browsing and realized that I never introduced myself. So rude. Sorry. I bought a 2007 9-3 2.0T Convertible a few years back. I'm at about 95K Miles now...

    For some reason I still like this car and want to pass it on to my son. 2 turbos, one new motor and multiple sensors and a DI cassette later, why quit now?

    Some of the longer term members may remember my travails with my spectacularly quick but temperamental GM900 3.0L V6 . Sadly she and I parted company about 6 years ago when I bought a P38 4.6L V8 Range Rover (I'm a glutton for punishment, it didn't do much worse to the gallon than the Saab and...

  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Anyone on here have any thoughts on how long Saab diesel engines can last (in terms of mileage)? Of course, I know a lot is down to the maintenance of the engine itself, but assuming it's kept in decent condition with semi-regular services etc what do you think they can achieve? I have two...
  13. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Well it's been a while since I've been on here, my 3rd Saab, was part ex back in 2009 for a Honda CRV. But been looking to change and not much really catches my eye. I think I've narrowed it down to either a Jag XF, a BMW 5 or one of those last few Saab 95s. Its gonna be an Auto, don't care...

    Hi folks after looking around on the interweb I have came to the conclusion that a long belt will solve the noise that my 9-5 2.0 Is making. I'm just wondering which long belt I need :)
