Thanks to all of you who have answered my questions over the last 2 weeks. I'd bought a car and then had it slated by and independent specialist. Thanks to the info you have provided and 2 weeks living with the car I now know I've got a good one with no faults.

Unfortunately I can't get on with the auto box so will probably be selling it on anyway but I can do this knowing it's a good car.

Time to look for a manual fpt

I wasn't too sure about the Saab auto box at first - epecially its habit of changing down or up at just the wrong time.

I've been driving it into work instead of my 2.0lpt manual for a few weeks now and I am getting used to it. Since I had the last service on the car it seems happier to stick in gear and give the turbo some clout rather than changing down, red lining the turbo and slamming me back into my rather comfy leather seat.. but that might just be my driving habits changing.

For motroway driving/commuting its an easier drive than the manual.. just wish its gear rations were a bit better so I could hit 70+ at 2.5K revs.

Steve,

I've just adjusted the kick-down cable and the box does seem better (it's had all the scheduled oil changes).

I now have 2 9000s and I need to sell one of them. The turbo auto still looks like the one to go but I'll carry on using it in the meantime and who knows, I may get to like it better than the CDE.

BTW you're right about the shove in the back and the leather seats.
