  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    To cut a long story short, I've been having nightmares with my 2008MY 150 bhp Vector Sportwagon. Two years ago had the DPF cleaned but it blocked again this year. Was told by cleaning company that it was burnt out. They sourced a 2nd hand original unit and cleaned this. This didn't work for more...

    Hi. I have been a member since 2008 ( when I brought a 9-3 1.9 TID) Today I purchased a 2008 9-3 Turbo X. Lovely looking and sounding car, the problem is, whilst driving home the 90 miles from Surrey I noticed that if I tried to drive hard the car was very hesitant and jerky from about 3000...

    So I have the option of buying a Turbo X. Great looking shape. 2 owners (owned by a Saab dealer first). No Accidents. The current owner has never had a problem with it. I know the rear differential can be a problem with Turbo Xs, however, the current owner has never had an issue with it. He...

    With the impending demise of my 2000 9-5 2.3LPT SE estate (175.5k miles) and what is looking like a hefty repair bill (turbo and head gasket) I'm waiting for the garage to give me the final outcome and the rough price to repair her but just in case its terminal I've been looking for another 9-5...

    I noticed yesterday my 9-5 2.3 Vector has just clocked up 76,000 miles (I know, it's just about run-in) and it prompted me to dig out my records. I bought it in November 05, with 13k on the clock. This is the longest I've owned a car, 52 months. The mileage isn't the point of interest, but the...

  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Ok I knew what I was in for with this model a parts bin special to fill a gap in the model range. Not a proper Saab, but for £300 it’s a lot of car for a super clean 900s Coupe in Silver full Saab history. Owned and loved by the obligatory old Gentleman in this case a veteran WWII navy man...
