    I have the above Saab reg 2006, and it has been cutting out on the motorway, in traffic etc. I took it to the Saab dealer in Gloucester 5 weeks ago and after it had been there for three weeks I finally got it back. First they checked injection items, wasn't that then they looked through the...

    Hey crew. My wife was driving our Saab 2.3 turbo 9000 and it just quit running on the motorway:(. The guy on the rescue wagon that showed up told her that he thought it was the alternator that was faulty. I charged the battery and it still wont start, thus eliminating the alternator. I've...

    I've got a 9 3 convert. 09 facelift model 1.9 TiD Vector. I've had an issue recently with the performance on motorways. Between 60-90 when in cruise control all of a sudden it's like the car is struggling for power. It even judders with vibrations through the sterring wheel. It's like an old car...

    Hi Guys, Just a quick one. While cruising down the motorway in cruise control at about 72mph this morning the car started jerking back and fort. It didn't come out of cruise control and didn't loose power just kept jerking. I took it out of cruise and still jerked but then went away after a...

    Guys/Gals, Really, really need your help, feeling a little low!! Driving home on the A1 today, I was unfortunate enough to drive over a rather large piece of metal, unfortunately the other lane was occupied, so avoidance was difficult. Luckily i managed to get piece in between the tyres, but...

    Slovenia has abolished the motorway toll booths and introduced a "vignette' system similar to the ones in Switzerland and Austria. Failure to notice this will be expensive if you go down that way. http://www.all-slovenia-holidays.com/slovenia-travel.html

    Hi All, I've got an 04 9-3 Vector Sport 150 (manual) with approx 100k miles on the clock. When I got it, I had to get the inlet manifold replaced (EGR valve cleaned at same time). Currently driving around at a steady 40 in 5th gear the SID (after a reset) tells me I'm getting 47+mpg, but...

    I have a 2003 Aero estate and cover about 22,000 miles a year, mostly on the M25. I have only had the Saab for 2 years and have to say it is probably the best all round car I have ever had. The service from my local dealer (North City in Chigwell) is very good. The thing is this: I drive...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi My 9000 Aero started losing coolant slightly with no obvious culprits, couldn't find a leak but could go for a week or so before touching minimum. It then overheated on the motorway but with a reasonable amount of coolant still left. Seems to be fine for short journeys ever since but have...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Have searched forum but failed to find anything, so if it is can some one point me to topic. My 40 month old 9-3 Aero has just stopped on the M25. Did this on M40 about a year ago. Basically did 2 miles at 60-70mph, got into tailback and then crawled for two miles and then when I put my foot on...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It happened a few times that when I had to brake after a long distance drive in very wet conditions, there was some kind of delay on the braking action. When I press the pedal nothing happens for a second, afterwards the car brakes again normally. It probably has to do with a film of water on...

    Something that came to me on the M6 yesterday: Is there a publication or central repository for suggestions for alternative food / petrol stops that remove the need to get ripped off at manky service stations without involving too much diversion from the M-way? I don't do a tremendous amount...

    Looks like we can all forget about any "stage 1" kit, you only need about 30hp to do 55mph ! http://news.scotsman.com/politics.cfm?id=376742005 A SPEED limit of 55mph could be imposed on UK motorists under fuel-saving plans backed by the EU Energy Commissioner. Latvia’s Andris...

    After a motorway run, if I then come to a standstill I get a strong smell of fuel; It doesnt seem to be a leak (I dont think! but I wonder if it is something to do with the injectors?) but this has been happening for a while and I think I ought to do something about it - does anyone know where...

    If a marked Police car is travelling on the motorway at 65mph, how fast would you go to pass them? 70mph? 77mph? Would you pass them if they were doing 70mph? I certainly do - crawl past. Presume they're looking for tail gaters / drivers with poor discipline etc...... What do you think?
