    I own a 2006 Saab 97x and recently brought it in for service due to a recall on the door module. The service went without a hitch however, when I drove out of the lot I noticed my driver's side window was pointing down. I didn't think anything of it so I manually adjusted the mirror back to...

    New here and never owned a Saab yet! Having done a fair amount of looking around I've decided I really like the look of the Saab 9-3 Aero. I now have a particular car in mind, a 2.0t (210) convertible with manual box. I've spent the last few years with a 280 vectra VXR and I know the 9-3 is...

But I don't quite believe everything I see on the internet, yet. Just curious if anybody out there has ever tried this...

    I've found two candidates and wanted to get some knowledgeable Saab enthusiasts opinions. 2003 9-5 aero ($5500): 129k miles but is a very pretty car. Automatic 2002 9-5 aero ($4400): 87k miles and manual. Haven't done a carfax, but a free VIN number look-up came back clean on both (3 owners...

    I have owned Saab 95's in the past, never thought I would go to anything else after 3 95 Aeros in a row. But went down the Jap route and bought a 350Z a few years ago and the difference was amazing. Now driving a 61plate 370Z but got a new job which means a 125 mile commute a day. So my plan...

I've read countless threads in there for the past weeks and now figured I'd dive in and start my own...

    So here's the situation I'm in... I recently had a pretty minor accident that left my '08 9-3 aero in need of a few parts that are, at this moment, very backordered. I know that the Saab Parts AB deal went down and some of the parts should be coming to the US by the end of this month. I'm also...
