    2005. 125k. When driving through the gears it holds back in each gear when having just changed up. Lets say I have just gone from 2nd to 3rd but not accelerating hard it seems to hold back for a second after the gear change. This has been the most troublesome car I have ever owned. It has...

    Hi All I have a 1997 Saab 9000 CS 2.3 Turbo. It has a big flat spot on accel prior to kicking down (auto trans) when doing over 60kph. Is there a common fault for this that i can look for prior to open heart surgery. It is intermitent, yet most of the time. It is not due to excessive boost as...

    Hi, Had the 2004 2.0 93 Linear back from MOT today and had an advisory on the rear tyres. Apparently they both have a number of flat spots on the inner edge. I'm sure I've read about this somewhere, but can't find the thread again. Anyone got any ideas??? Thanks

    My car has an annoying flat spot at 2.5k revs. I call it a flat spot but its more like the engine just stops at that point however when it comes back on power it pulls very strongly. This makes smooth acceleration especially in first imposible. In first it feels like you have lifted off the...

    In 1993, Saab-Scania did a Saab 9000 Television spot for the Czech market. It is important to note that as of January 1st, 1993, Czechoslovakia was dissolved and became the Czech Republic. The voiceover was apparently done by Zdeňek SvÄ›rák, notable Czech script writer.
