    I don't know if this has been done before but what's the best and worst feature of your 9-3? Mine: Best - has to be Nightpanel. Makes night time driving so much less distracting and every time I turn it on I feel like I've gone into stealth mode :D Worst - pulling the stalk for main beam. The...

    When you buy a secondhand motor, you like to think you've just got a good deal. A "good deal" is obviously subjective, from person to person. But have you had any good or bad moments from secondhand dealers? Bought something then a month later it fell apart? Or ever got an absolute steal...

  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Ok, so my recently purchased (Sep 2010) approved used Saab (1.9TiD 2007) did 50k so far and broke down twice in the past 2 weeks. First time it was the EGR valve, this morning it was the alternator. I've browsed the forum and those two problems seem to be quite common. So I guess my question is...

  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just picked it up from the garage for the 8th time in 8 months to get the suspension sorted for the second time. The dash rattles, then stops, then rattles again. The cars handling is so so compared with my old BMW, Audi and Mondeo and the Sat Nav and 13 speaker sound system is passable at best...

    What good are you if you can't laugh at yourself? This is not my finest moment, but it's a moment nonetheless. Never let it be said that I try and cover stuff like this up. The ironic part is that this is the only moment of my 10 laps in 5 different Saabs that was caught on film. Ah...

    I passed a 9-3ss on the M1 last night in that hideous "Dolphin" grey from a couple of years back. I think they sold about 3 cars, heavily discounted, in that colour... Got me to thinking - what is the worst Saab colour ever? There have been a few howlers over the years - not least (IMHO) that...
