  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hi all, my reception for my radio is terrible, even my wifes 15 year old Fiesta gets better reception with a standard factory fitted ford stereo/aerial. Does anyone else suffer with that or is it just me?? Is there anything I can do, cheaply, to improve it. I was tempted with putting an old...

  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, While driving home last night I looked down to see my check engine light on and critical warning light on. I had noticed since the morning that when I was pulling out of stops the car would shake quite a bit but would eventually stop as I built up speed and got going. However, this...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello all. I have a 2008 year model 9-3 with 1.9 TID (88kw) and it runs very smooth. Cold start is good, idle speed is good, engine performance is good but warm start is awful. If I drive about 10-30 minutes and stop at gas station and try to start again, it does this super-terrible thing...

  7. Saabscene: Performance
    X reg 9-3 2ltr turbo (205E) with 54k on the clock. Dealer maintained until recently. Just fitted a new turbo and although I can't remember what sort of mpg I used to get I'm now getting just under 20mpg which seems a bit thirsty, even though I only do short trips (4 miles x 3 or 4 times a day)...
  8. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hello everyone I have a 1988 900 S Turbo which I haven't driven for about a year. I decided it was time to start using my precious little beast again and so took it for an MOT last week. It failed on fog tell-tale light on dash, wiper blades and emissions. The first two were easily rectified...
