    Howdy fellow SAAB smitten brethren. I just bought a C900 turbo 8 V on eBay! At 21 I said someday I would have one. Now at 56 I have one! Have had 3 GM Saabs, but this one is special. Got her in Preston England, now back in Limerick Ireland and all is well. She is in super condition, but there...

  3. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi All After 4+ years with my trusty 9-3 1.9TiD, we needed a change, and got a fair offer for our own car, which we took. One reason is that we want to change to an automatic. Now, I've found an 05 9-5 Estate, 2.2TiD, Automatic, with 99k miles on it, and it seems in good condition - but I am...

    Good morning all, Having owned a couple of 9-3's in the past, and in need of a motorway muncher, I came across a 53 plate 9-5 3.0TiD :eek: . Having taken your sharp intake of breath (I've read the horror stories about the Isuzu engine and it's faults/costs) the car seems like a great buy...
  5. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi there - I'm trying to track down the operating instructions for the Cobra A5801 alarm system that was routinely fitted to the classic 900. I have one fitted to my car but have no key fobs or manual override key. I want to fit a new alarm but don't think I can just disconnect as this will...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, first post (of many, I hope). Having wanted a Saab for the best part of twenty years, I'm finally in a position to buy a used version. I've found an example which meets my spec at Carsite. Its a 2005 Saab 9-3 Diesel Sport Saloon 1.9TiD Vector Sport [150] 4dr, ex-fleet, 71K miles...
  7. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi Folks. This is Chris from Motorvation Saab Specialists. I am thinking of putting a "help our owners" page on our website giving hints, tips, news and useful information to our customers . The idea is just to provide help and answers to frequently asked questions. I will NOT be advertising...
  8. Saab News
    I thought I’d post this here on the off-chance that someone frequenting this site might have done this before. Prior to going out on the track this coming Sunday, I need to have a fire extinguisher in the car. I bought one during the week (surprisingly inexpensive*) and given that I don’t...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've been a Saab driver for some time having had 2 classic 900's and a pair of GM900's over the years. I had a 9-3 Convertible as a company car for a while, but did not pay that much attention to it's running costs and potential issues. I have just purchased a 9-3 Aero Convertible MY01 with...

    I’m starting to get the feeling that Trollhattan Saab has reached it’s peak. Don’t panic, just read on. There’s plenty of energy in the tank, but I’m just unsure if TS is the vehicle to carry things to the next level. This site has had to grow from nothing and has been adapted to carry many...

    Hi all, In just over a week I'll be leaving this land-o-my-birth and travelling to sunny Sweden for the Saab Festival. Can any of you Swedes recommend a good, reasonably priced hotel in Stockholm, preferably one that's close to whatever train station I need to go to in order to travel to...
  12. Saab News
    HI all. Just thought I'd send a note out there to all you Swedes re: the MY08 Saab 9-3 and the Saab Festival. Firstly, it's been a while since there's been any 9-3 news. Is there anything new that we should know. Any confirmations about the possiblity of the coolest tail lamps EVER...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, new to this forum having just picked up a 98 9-5 SE with 118k on the clock in VGC for a snip at £800. It does need 4 new tyres though and an oil change. I bought it off a work colleage who has just replaced the DIC and by his own admission never had the auto box in 'S' nad has begged to...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I'm in the market for a new car and the Saab range has certainly caught my eye, specifically the 9-5 but the 9-3 is quite appealing too I guess. The main sticking point is that I only have a max budget of £2000, so I'm looking at highmilers. As I only drive about 3000 miles a year it's not...

    A friend of mine has a Renault Laguna 95/96 N-plate which, on a recent journey, cut out and would not restart immediately. He called the RAC. 20 minutes later he managed to start the car, cancel the RAC and complete his journey. The following day the car would not start. He managed to get...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I will be driving my 1994 Saab CS on a 1000 km trip in a couple of days. However, today I was looking between the motor and the firewall to check the gearbox linkage joint when I saw a sensor hanging in mid air. I can't find where the sensor should be placed. The shape and size of the...

  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I recently bought a 1994 Saab 9000 CS Manual with 146,000 km on the clock which was in very original condition. (In other words no replacement of worn parts had ever been carried out.) I have been finding different components which need replacing to bring the car up to a reasonable standard...
