    Hi all, And sorry if this is posted in the wrong section - wasn't too sure where was appropriate? But can anyone confirm whether Nottingham Saab is still a working garage? I have tried the phone number on their website to no avail all day? thanks Rob.

    Hi Everyone, I have just brought a Saab 9-5 and I'm thoroughly enjoying driving it. Are there any issues I need to be aware of, as its a long while since I last owned a Saab my first one was a Saab 9000? I'm looking forward to catching up with all the posts on here. Nick

    Hi all, Quick intro - Bought myself an '08 9-3 1.9 150 recently and by all accounts will need to be visiting here fairly regularly to keep it sweet :D Anywho, no problems so far and some good reading to be done. See you.

    Hi Guys, Just thought I'd let everyone know, I recently had my Saab 9-3 1.9 TiD Hirsch'd by Stratstone Saab in Nottingham. It's the best £915 i've ever spent, the car is now so fun to drive and is exactly how you would expect a Saab to be. BUT................. I've just recieved a text message...

    Dear Forum Members, Unfortunately I encountered my first problem with my Saab 9-3 Convertible, (MY 2000), when the Drive Belt Pulley melted and the Belt then shredded itself whilst I was heading towards Leicester on the A46, last Friday morning! I had to utilise my AA Recovery subscription...

    Hi, Can anyone give me any feedback on Stratstone Saab in Nottingham? I suspect my 9-3 may have developed a cracked bulkhead. I am obviously looking for the most cost effective and hassle free resolution as possible. My other option is Gordon Lamb in Sheffield who I have used in the past but...
  9. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I recently purchased an official used 9-3SS from Saab Norwich. It's now developed a weird humming/drumming noise that seems to come from the front near side wheel. It's purely speed dependant, so I am thinking something's up with the disk or bearings (!!). I currently live in Loughborough and...

  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Watch these guys. They sent me an incorrect interface for my car (despite me giving them a pinpoint description of my car) then when i returned for a refund they stated that they couldnt find it. Im out £38 and no goods. Have to claim compensation thru the post office. Best avoided in my opinion.

    Just had to post a glowing recommendation for Mr Tyre, a Hi-Q franchise in Nottingham - 76-78 Castle Boulevard, 0115 924 2288. Despite having a nice (almost) new pair of Contis sat on my patio ready to go on the front of my car, I hadn't had time to get them fitted before setting off for Hemel...

    My 9-3 developed a severe oil leak over last w/e - oil on drive, in garage, on my feet, on the hall carpet etc! Rang Westie at Nottingham Saab first thing Monday AM - took it straight in. I watched as they cleaned, examined, cleaned some more before diagnosing that a lower timing chain seal had...

    Does anyone know of a decent Saab mechanic around Mansfield in Nottinghamshire, as we are looking to get our recently bought Saab 9-3 TDi serviced, is running a bit rough but only has 28K on the clock! Someone else has recommended SaabTec to me, but they are a little too far in Glossop. Thanks ARK

    I meant to post the other week. Wes was a great help to me by talking though the troubles of my very sick 9-5 and helping me to plan a way out the problem. He knew he was a long way away and that if I persued a warrantee claim he was unlikely to get any immediate work out of it. BUT he gave...
