  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    A while back my BPC valve failed stuck open such that it never limited boost. It took the ECU with it when it failed. I replaced the ECU and BPC at the same time with some used units. A few months later the car completely died while on the road. It turned out the DI had failed so I replaced it...

    A couple of new Saab 9-3 road tests have popped on to the electronic radar in the last few days. It’s somewhat baffling that the 2008 Saab 9-3 should be stalling in the US like it is. All of the reviews so far have been quite positive. Witness this one from Royal Ford at the Boston Globe...

    The IIHS has just concluded some SUV crash tests, with the Chevrolet Trailblazer included. The results for the Trailblazer are counted as results attributable to the Saab 9-7x. Unfortunately. It’s something to seriously consider as the 9-4x continues it’s development that Saab place a huge...

    Out of the Bay Area comes the Mercury News, and Matt Nauman of said news service has just spend two weeks driving two different Swedes, the Saab 9-3 Aero and the Volvo S80. He covers both cars in the one article, which is strange enough in itself as it naturally draws comparisons to what are...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I've been looking far and wide for old road tests for the 2.0n/a and yesterday managed to find one on top gear website. However, after having downloaded and paid my £3 it turned out to be not so hot. I also managed to 'waste' another £3 on a report which actually centred on the classic 900...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Checking the AA NCAP Crash Test result site for a car my son was interested in I noted there were also results for the GM900 & the 9-3. The 900 managed just 2 stars! with the 9-3 in with 4, plus criticism. No mention of the 9000, guess it was too old, out of interest does anyone out there no...
