    Hi looking at the 2.8 xwd and can't believe the automatic is soo much slower than the manual, is this true and is there any advantage to the auto at all? Have seen one with the hirsch upgrade to 300 bhp will that make much difference? I love Saabs and had an old shape proper 93 aero, but now...

    Hi, picked up a 56 plate 1.8t Linear Sport Estate a week ago, 32k miles and full service history. A few years ago I ran a 9-3 2.0t SS Vector Sport (MY03) for a few months, and for one reason and another, it was pretty much a disaster. However, with this car 300 miles on and so far so good...

I decided to search for this...

    As a continuation of the ongoing trend where we’re seeing front-wheel drive only when it comes to alternative powertrains, it seems like Electro Engine may follow suit. We’ve previously learned that there are no diesel TTiD options for Saab 9-3s equipped with the Haldex XWD (Cross-Wheel Drive)...

    I am the proud owner of a 2002 93FPT Anniversary Edition Saab and love it. Its my first Saab, had it about 3 years, and after driving this car, I am sure I will want another Saab after this one. The reason for the posting, is that a while ago, I had to call out the AA after a warm start...

    I spotted the picture below on my Flickr feed today and I was really heartened. Saab are a small company. One of their first race drivers (and winners) was chief engineering exec Rolf Mellde. Erik Carlsson was a local kid who worked at a petrol station in Trollhattan when he started racing...

    My mum is about to purchase a 1994 Saab 900 2.5 V6 for £230. Is this price to good to be true? Neither of us know much about cars so any advice on one of these would be appreciated. How much do these usually go for? Rach

    Hi all. I have just made the move from the UK to the US and had to sell my beloved 9000 Aero. Whilst driving around looking for a lump of American metal yesterday I came across a 2001 9-3 convertible turbo. The owner/dealer said it had been in a light front end crash and repaired, and the price...
