    Hi everyone. Bought my first Saab today (Based in UK), 57 plate Manual 9-3 Vector Sport TID (150) 70k on the clock, 2 previous owners, fantastic condition inside and out, refurbished black alloys and looks the absolute business. Car came with pretty much a full Saab service history and...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Heyo, my manual 2006 Saab 9-3 is rattling in the front passenger side engine. The rattle only starts after 45/50 mph and does not get louder or stronger after that (at least up to the 70 mph that I tried.) A look-around does not show anything. It's not wildly loud--I was driving in the rain...

  4. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi all, I've had my 57 plate (My08) 9-3 Vector Convertible (61k miles) for a couple of months now and the only worrying thing is a vibration from the front of the car at speeds over 50mph with, what seems to me, a somewhat vague feel to the steering. The tyres, which came with the car, are...
  5. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    I'm getting slight vibration through the steering wheel above 50mph. I've had problems with warping disc and don't know if the 2 things could be related. This problem occurs on all surfaces at speed over 50 and gradually gets worse as speed increases. Don't get me wrong this is by no means...

    Hi, I drive a 2005 saab 95 linear 2.2tid. Has anyone had a problem with their abs and esp warning lights coming on while driving usually at 60mph? This fault has only happened recently and appears to be an electrical fault. I have visually checked all the abs sensors on the wheels, but there...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Yet another abs problem :rolleyes: When starting the engine, abs light goes out as it should so all checks seems to finish ok. But at 20 mph it lights up again and stays on for the rest of the trip. Happens every time at exactly the same speed. I can drive for hours at 19 mph but as soon as I...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have found that my estate has a wobble once I hit 75 and continues as the speed increases (on private roads etc). I have had the local guys look at the tracking and balancing to the point where I know them all on first name terms. I have had new tyres fitted to the front which after only 1,000...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello I started getting some veird vibrations on my 93 Sportwagon 1.9 Tid. They start to be noticeable above 70 mph and the faster I go the harder and louder they become. Car sounds like 4.0 V8. I can feel them through the steering wheel and floor. Breaking makes them even worse - the harder...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Afternoon All, I have a 9-5 2.2 turbo diesel, 2002. If I travel at a constant 70 mph the car is fine. If I up it to 80mph, after a short period the turbo cuts out. Stop the car and restart and everthing is fine. Any ideas? Thanks Chris
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am having a problem with vibrations and knocking from what feels like the front wheel CV joints when going above 70 mph and when cornering to the left at lower speeds . I have already changed out the drive shafts on both sides including the joints but problem persists. The effects are...

  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this on their 9-3. When driving at between 60 to 75 MPH, I get a hight pitched whining/whistling noise from around the drvivers door area of the car, bit like a high pitched wind noise sound. It is not loud, but is annoying. I have a 9-3 2.0t Linear...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can somebody help me with a basic spec.information? My newly aquired 2.3 SE Turbo Estate automatic, MY2000, only shows 2,000 rpm at 68mph. My previous 9000CS Carlsson gave about 25 mph at 1,000 rpm in 5th.,and I was expecting the 9-5 to be similar. 34 mph at 1,000 rpm seems to be unbelievably...
