2001 95 Aero
Currently needs suspension replaced. Ordered and on the way (Koni FSD are about 6 weeks out though). Will replace bushings and a bunch of other stuff while the wheels are off. Exhaust rusted out, replaced with BSR Catback. Been blowing oil for years. Clean sump and engine. Just got P0420 code. Second time? Cant recall. Its not been a problem car. Its fun and even when my wife wanted a new car I wanted to keep this one. We will keep it. I'm at 151k. Love working on it. Probably will be able to keep up that hobby!
My 9-5 2000 SE has 175.5K on the clock and up untill Thursday had never put a foot wrong. Now she lies in the local garage devoid of life with a blown turbo and suspect head gasket! I was so hoping to go over 200K in her.
Good evening all. I am in the process of buying a 2005 9-5 Estate (Linear Sport 2.2TiD). I wanted to ask a question. It has has a full service history, but it currently has 165000 miles on the clock. I''ve got a test drive booked in for next weekend, as the dealer is servicing the car before selling it.
I've got a 9-5 diesel automatic saloon - 56 plate - bought it from my friendly dealer in October 2012 - it had done 133k in it when I bought it from him. Am hoping for as many trouble free miles as possible. So far so good, it's been fab.
I have a 03 Aero wagon with 177k and just picked up a 04 Arc wagon with 367K. Both run great! The 04 needs a few motor mounts. (Why don't people replace those...? Got them ordered.)
Silver is the 03, Red is 04. (Note the same front end... Not sure why..?)
Well, I've just purchased my first Saab. A 9-5 Aero Wagon with 153,000 on the clock. All seems ok apart from a non working passenger electric seat and non working headlight washers. Apart from those issues which I plan to fix soon after I collect it, it seems tight as a drum.
I'm a little worried about buying a car with 150k on it. I need it to last a while. We'll see. I'm going to oil change every 6 months etc to try and keep it tip top.
Wish me luck with it!!!!
I've got a while to go. Mine ticked onto 53K last week.... That is exactly 300K less than the BMW it replaced... << Quite a long read....
Kids love the Saab! Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down Roof up roof down
Hello all, I searched but couldn’t find anything related to the differences between the earlier 9-5s and my 2008 with respect to the side markers.
I’m not crazy about the clear and prefer orange or black as previous models had. They look the same, but the part numbers are different. Could it...

Had a look here can't find answers.
My old girl creaks a lot low speed/parking etc from the front end. Always sails through it's WOF (MOT) checks so nothing obviously serious, but any ideas on what it could be?
As far as I know she's never had any bushes etc replaced.
I've had an EGR filter issue for over a year. (I really don't drive much).
But its coming up to MOT time, and I need to sort it. My mechanic is adamant there is nothing wrong with the EGR filter or its valve (he gave it a once over whilst changing a wheel bearing, so hasn't done a...
Forgive me if this is common knowledge, but I cannot find the part number for the hose I need.
I have a 2006 9-5 1.9tid. It's done 241000ishmiles, and I just want it to keep going.
I've now got a leak from my top rad hose.
That's the hose I need. But...
