    Hi all, I’m Barry, a new Saab owner. I bought my first Saab, an 04 9-3, as a first car for my daughter. It was small, cheap and safe. Perfect. The problem was my wife liked driving it. Fast forward a year and I now have two, the original plus an 05 ragtop. From my point of view, after buying a...

  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    After living with this problem for over 18 months, I decided to bite the bullet and get a new ISM module - bought it from Neo brothers, fitted it, then the first time I used it the dreaded 'Steering Lock Malfunction' stranded me in the badlands of Reading. So I guess the ISM wasn't the problem...

    Direct Ignition Cassette Two-Year Observations. Up to the time my Saab 9-3 SE Petrol was some nine years old it was still running on the original (DIC) ‘Direct Ignition Cassette’ plugs had been renewed a few times but that was it. Then one day whilst filling up for a run to London, about 120...

    Just a bit of ‘chatter’ but you may well identify with it! Out and about in my car (9-3-SE 2l Turbo) on Wed 9th Sept 2010 and all is well. Parked as usual and wanted an early start the following morning. Turned the key, engine turns over and over –nothing no firing, spluttering or anything...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well not much of a story but my Saab 9-3 Aero Convertable 54 plate 70,400 miles failed its MOT on broken nearside coil spring. Really wanted to upgrade to the Hirsch but the overall cost was more than I wanted to spend right now. So ended up getting the standard Aero coil springs replaced at...

    Intro My time with the Subaru Impreza WRX is almost up. On Wednesday I plan to take the car back to our local Subaru dealer and bid it a less-than-fond farewell, but a farewell nonetheless. I figure that’s a lot more respectful than just dumping it at their front door. If it sounds like I...

    I just got this in from Robin M, our unofficial Saab Ambassador for the UK and organiser of the Swedish Day UK car show last weekend. He just prepared this for Saab Driver magazine over there but given that most of us don’t get Saab Driver, I feel pretty sure that the wider audience will...
