I am a recent convert to SAABs, after years of Citroens, and I am hooked, but my 9000 non turbo auto has taken to surging on idle and runs as rough as guts, missing, hiccupping and drinking the fuel - 20l per 100km.

Kei te pe hia, koe??

We are in Sydney and have a 1993 9000CD with less than 90,000ks and in good nick.

Ours is auto trans, no mags (yet!!) otherwise pretty standard. They are worth more here in Aus than in NZ. Indeed, NZ is cheap for cars compared to here! Ours would be worth about $10k??? AUD given it's condition and ks.

We may move back to NZ some time and if so, we'd like to take our car, despite it not being worth as much in NZ

...... and ours is running rough, but I think it's because the timing chain is not quite right - even slapping on the cover!! Taking the car to a Saab specialist in a week's time for an assessment. I have heard that if it's the timing chain, then repairs are cheap - ish, BUT if it's the counterbalance chains, then it costs a motza!!!!!!!

There is a NZ club who like to know who you are and what you drive...
http://www.saab.gen.nz/

And there are a good selection of Saabs here :

Just sold my '86 9000 on TradeMe a few months ago and picked up a '92 9000CS - which is mighty fine for the roads out west of Christchurch and beyond.

Sorry, can't help with your post question...but I have just noticed a small leak in my plastic gas tank. Maybe you should check yours if you are loosing gas.
