    Hi, I've had a few Saabs in the past but I recently bought a 9-3 Aero HOT coupe as a toy.....except it was a bit sick and one turbo, a 3 inch downpipe and some bits of bodywork later and I now have a functioning car! Thanks to the downpipe the way is open for a bit of (Noobtune) re-mapping with...

    Hi Guys, I never know what to write when introducing myself. I have had various Saabs over the years from flat fronted 900's, various 9000's, 900 convertible and now a 2007MY 9-3 Aero Sport Wagon with a couple of minor modifications so far..... I was a member here many years ago and found it...

    Hi all I've just returned to Saab ownership with a 2007 Aero 9-3 SportWagon 2.0T, which I'm really happy with. My first Saab was a green 900 in 1999, then I briefly had a 9-5 estate in 2005. In between there have been Audi A6s, RR Sport, and I still own a 2004 911 C2S for 'high days and...

    Hi all After spending 18 months in Audi wilderness, tomorrow I will be back in a Saab :) My wife filled my last 95 tid with petrol and reduced the value to a bag a sweets and a can of pop. I have now purchased a nice 93 vector estate which will be handy for growing kids. It is a low millage, so...

    Been away a while with volvos, peugeots and the like demanding my attentions. Bought a W plate 9-3 yesterday (Turbo SE convertible as I have just got a job with a works van so my weekend motor can be for fun. Drove it 100 miles back home, just had to drop it into 3rd through the Hindhead tunnel...

    Hi all, not really a new member, but I haven't been on here for about 9 years...is it really that long?! :eek: Back then, I had a 1988 9000 Turbo 16 (RIP), but I've just gone and bought myself a 2000 9-3 Turbo convertible. In between, there was an R33 Skyline, a Mk1 MR2 and a Smart Roadster...

    Hi saabsceners After being away for a while with an Alfa GT and an Astra Sports Hatch (both 1.9 turbo diesels), I am desperate to get back behind the wheel of a 9-3 TD saloon. I am aiming for a 57/58 plate Vector but also strongly considering the Anniversary model as it comes with the Satnav...

    Hi All, Following the sale of my Z4 last year I'm really missing convertible ownership and realised I really could do with 4 seats rather than 2! I used to own a 55 plate Saab convertible and I'm feeling the need to scratch the Saab itch again... I've got my eye on a 55 plate Aero that seems to...

    Hi everyone, i've got a problem with the wipers in that when in auto mode, or when turned off, they do not park in the home position. They end up staying appx. 30 degrees from horizontal.<br> Now i read somewhere that it could be a faulty motor, so i managed to get hold of a used one and fitted...

    Hi guys, just a quick hello. I am returning to Saab after a few years away, albeit I now own a 9-3 rather than a 9000 and have moved to Western Australia from the UK. I have discovered Keith McKracken out here, so along with your help I should be able to take care of any issues.

    Hi there peeps. Been away from Saabs for a couple of years, previously driving a hand me down 9000 cse from my dad. Got to know that one quite well, fixing all the things that had been neglected. Well I now have another hand me down and am in the same situation of having to bring it back up to...

    Hi, I'm Paul from Northern Ireland. I have just purchased a mint 2002 9-3 HOT Aero Coupe in laserlight silver. I'm over the moon with my purchase. I had many years ago owned a 1995 900S 5dr in Imola Red. I really liked the car but did it wrong and bought a car with no service history, so quickly...

    I note an awful lot of us returning to SAAB, I left and tried several other makes including VW and Ford's most popular models but the quality of the vehicles was so poor in most respects I came back to SAAB. In my previous incarnation I had 900's, 9000's and 95s, now I have a 2004 93 Vector...

    Joined a few minutes ago. In the process of buying a 2002 9-3 Anniversary Convertible, 90000kms, one owner, for the wife. Her last SAAB was a 1979 900 Turbo, 5 door, 4 speed, and that was an awesome car, and the Jaguar below replaced it. She just sold (5 days ago) her 1985 Jaguar XJ-S V12...

    Hi, Used to be on here when I had an old 9000CSi, but various cars later, I now find myself with a quite tidy looking 2009 9-3 Aero TTid Convertible. So, a quick hello, before I start trawling for help, info and such like to keep her ticking over, and make any tweaks necessary. Cheers, Pete

    Hi, Been looking round and i think i know the answer.......but then im no mechanic.. The igntion switch lets us start the car but the key doesnt return to the on position - it made a strange click and stayed in start but easily moved back to on - so luckily it drives but if you dont return the...

    As topic states, went away for the weekend and all was fine, got into my car on return and for some reason the gear lever does not spring back to center!! I have taken the gaiter off but can't see anything wrong, after quick search I see it's a common fault with the selector on the box, can...

    Hi all, My gear selector has just gone stiff, well not stiff, but it does not spring back to the centre position form reverse, 1st or 2nd or when in 5th & 6th. It's a 1.9Tdi 120 Sportwagon.... Does anyone know why this might be? And wht the solution is? Do I need to grease the linkages? Any...
