  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, My 9000 from 1993 has done 287k's and in need of some work to pass the next warrant. I saw a 2002 from 1995 for sale with 200kms which probably goes for a low price. Looks like a very good looking car, but not sure what to expect. Read about the sludge issues and the car also has lots of...

  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I noticed today that the 9-5 I bought a few weeks ago with 125,000 on the clock is now reading 130,000. I know I've only done about 300 miles in it. Between when I bought it and now the ECU was changed out for a noobtuned one, so I could keep the stock one 'just in case'. I wouldn't really care...

    Hi Folks, I have had the pleasure of not having had to do very much to maintain the various Saabs my wife has had for he last 20 years or more. They're very nice reliable cars. We are just now passing her 53 reg 9-3 to our youngest son and are looking for a convertible while there are still good...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    this maybe a stupid question but are there any mileage dependent parts on the petrol 93's that need replacing i understand for the diesel you have the cambelt change but i dont think this is applicable for the petrol as they are chains? is there anything else i should plan for (car will be...

    Hi guys just here after a bit of advice....have recently been looking for an Audi A4 or VW Passant Cc, luckily a nice 9-3 2.0 petrol aero caught my eye and have decided to go for this instead. The car seems in good condition and drives really well the only draw back is the 130k mileage, I only...

  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My computed mileage via the Saab computer is about 4 mpg less than that I obtain by dividing miles by gallons; is this common? is the Maptun stage 1 as easy to install as state of 9 would have one believe; I have a 2004 9-3 and am considering the stage 1- 2.0t 185hp at present.

    Evening folks. I'm possibly going to look at an Aero estate tomorrow. It's an '02 with 150k on the clock. I know these are iron block engines which are stronger than alloy ones. What I'd like to know from you 9-5 gurus is.... How long do these engines last in you're opinion? I would service...

    fitted 4 new tyres and have done 8000 miles and they are nearly down to the indicators between the tread. does not seem like a lot of miles. how many miles do you get from your tyres.
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Evening, I've looked at a few HPT 2.3s and missed some obviously good ones. However, I have a possible viewing on a very low mileage 2.3 LPT ('EcoPower or some other marketing portmanteau). After scanning all buyer's guide and this site, aside from the usual bits & pieces are there any...
