  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Last Friday after visiting a friend in London I came out to my SAAB 9-5 (2005 MY 2.2 diesel auto estate) and pressed the remote, nothing happened. I tried everything to open the car without any joy, the key just turned in the lock and there is no external lock on the tailgate. I called out the...

    Hi, I have naughty thoughts on buying a 9-3 Turbo X. I didn't know the car even existed until yesterday. Could you please tell me what the general/real world running costs are like? I am looking to buy a car that is cheaper to run than my current non-Saab and have a fear in my head that this...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Recently I started a thread about Aux in which drifted into the realms of DAB units. My conclusion was the best option for Aux in on my 2004 9-3 convertible is an add on DAB unit with aux in as I have in my other car. It feeds down the FM aerial and puts data up using RDS. So I bought everything...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I purchased the car a week ago from a Trader and don't remember any issues when test driving the car. Its a 2008 MY2009 with 108k miles on the clock but a full saab history and serviced 1000 miles ago. It ran out of fuel 2 mins after leaving the forecourt so not sure if that's related...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just uploaded the bsr ppc stage 1 maps onto my 2001 95 aero manual and am now finding it pulls like a train up to 4500 rpm then the boost drops away along with performance. I have emailed bsr.se with my problem but as its a weekend dont expected to hear anything till next week? I was wondering...

    Thanks to Andy, the resident TS vocalist, I came across this very even-handed review of Saab 9000 Turbo from 1991. It was done by MotorWeek, a program produced by Maryland Public Television here in the US. For those of you not from the States, Maryland is a relatively small but densly...

    Following is a guest post from someone I’ll simply refer to here as part of the Djup Strupe collective. Enjoy. —— Recently Saab UK released their sales figures for January and opinions on them were less than encouraging. The truth is that UK dealers actually sold a lot of vehicles but...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Am I the only idiot here in the U.S. that has taken my 9000t to the (in my case not-so) local authorized saab servicing center for a 24 point inspection and leave never hearing about the 3 safety recalls the NHTSA has put on it? The ? I have is can I take it to them and demand that they fix them...
