    Hello there I have recently purchased a Saab 2.0t 175 BHP . the service book says 18000 or 2 years on oil changes .

    I've always used oil/air filters from the local motor factors in the past on my old Zafira, but as the Saab is (for me) relatively new, just wondered if there is any benefit in using genuine Saab/GM oil / air filters? What about oil? It's had Mobil 1 in the past, what are your views on...

    Hi all. I am considering using the above outfit in Waltham Cross to carry out my 72k service on my Saab 9-3 Aero Petrol. Would really appreciate your recommendations.

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Good morning, Could anyone advise me on how I should go about changing the GEARBOX oil in my 2001 9-3 2.2 TID SE. Now, I don't mean physically as the procedure is straightforward. I mean what oil I need to use. My reason for asking is that I've read threads mentioning models before a certain...

    Firstly, thanks for all the replies to my halogen to xenon question. I opted for Osram NightBreakers as a quick (cheap) fix! I bought my '07 9-3 tid auto (150) a few weeks ago. After much deliberation, I opted for a late pre-facelift model in the hope that some of the issues which affected...

    Hi all I have a Saab 9-3 Vector, 52 plate, but MY2003, 2.0t petrol (175bhp) with 66k miles on clock. I did look all this up before I bought the car a year ago, and tried doing a search now but can't find anything relevant, but was under the impression that the 72k mile service was a biggie...

    Hi there, I've come back to the Saab fold after a few years off, having just bought a 9-5 aero auto salloon (dame edna style). It's got 96k on the clock and desperately needs a service. I've just called my local Saab dealer for a price and was quoted £686 for a 72k service (it does need the...

    Hi Im pretty sure that you can get a service done by a non-saab garage without affecting warranty, but what about parts? Do i have to use OEM parts, or can i get my filters etc from anywhere? Thanks R
