    After much back and forth over the past months between Swedish Automaker Saab and Chinese suitors Pang Da Automobile Trade Co. and Zhejiang Youngman Lotus Automobile Co., it seems like funding for Saab is very much back. The Chinese companies have both agreed to buy the Swedish automaker...

  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    After the loss of power problem, 3 trips to the (useless) garage, 3 breakdowns and now the 2nd EGR valve it started playing up again today. Could not accelerate up a hill on the motorway so I pulled over and stopped the car. Restarted after a minute and gave the car a blast down the slip road...

    Am going to be out of the country for at least six months and was wondering what to do to the car [Hirsch Aero] Will be stored on my drive. Disconnect battery? [this will void the insurance?? as no alarm] Full fuel tank to prevent condensation. Wonder if I can get cheaper insurance as will not...

    I've been making enquiries about this, and my own insurer NU recommended this site (it's one of theirs!): http://www.dayinsure.com Not used them yet, but the price seems the same as I've paid before elsewhere. Hope the info may be of use to someone.

    Winging Road, the online car magazine run by David E Davis, has added a Saab 9-5 SportCombi to their long-term test fleet. Our host for this article, Steven Ewing, has some experience with 9-5 Wagons as his mother ran the test fleet at another publication and frequently drove a 9-5 Wagon...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Guys I just moved into a new house at the weekend - it has a fairly steeply sloped drive. Since I only use the car (1999 9-3 185Bhp Turbo SE) once or maybe twice a week I am a bit worried about the handbrake sticking and also the implication of fluids being slumped at either the front or...

    Just had a rather pleasant surprise from the nice people at Norwich Union. I needed to insure another car temporarily (C900 with a rapidly dying gearbox, which is donating various bits to my other two 900s). So I rang NU, who insure our Espace and 900SE. Cost to insure the car for a week was...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hiya, my car went in for a 90K service today and before I paid I checked the bill. They tried to charge me for 5 litres of oil @ £8 per litre. The car only takes 4! When I asked what they had done with the other litre I was told it was a std charge, not on my car it isn't! I got the £8...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Right before you boys all gang up on me ( ), this is a genuine question!!! If you upgrade your ECU etc, does this mean that all the standard bits such as the turbo etc can have a harder life? What I mean is, does upgrading your 9-5 to monster bhp affect the longer term reliability...

    Is there a "technical" term for a person driving down the fast lane of a motorway in the wrong direction, in the mistaken belief that he is on the left-hand side of a two or three lane road? Harry

    Any recommendations on who to use for 2 days car insurance? Just need to get covered for a courtesy car. Need it for Monday morning and I forgot until this morning. Of course the insurance company I use for the car being serviced is closed at the weekend, so need to find another . My fault...

    OK, so I might not be able to sell my Carly, even at the modest asking price ... perhaps I've made prospective buyers suspicious? So what do I do until I have a garage of my own?? I was thinking of rented storage space but I can't seem to find such a place in the likes of Yell and Scoot...
  14. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    As many of you will now I was in the process of selling my Carly and then backed out before I had any firm offers. The reason being that with it being such a rare car I wouldn't fancy my chances of finding another if I wanted a "hobby car" in a few years time. That coupled with the fact that...
