Default It's that time of year again (CD skips)

Newbies prepare,

Your CDs will skip when the car is cold. This is normal and can not be fixed. The laser lenses gets condensation on it or fogs up and it will all clear up when the car warms up and clears the lenses. Don't get mad, frustrated...... just except it. Use your MP3 player for 15-20 min. or just use it anyway.


Just a warning.


Love your Saab. Everyone else that doesn't own one loves it!!!!!!!

LOL....but they must like you more , ppl responded!

For the newies....the Saab 6 CD changer has a tendency to skip a bit on cold mornings, so what I do is just let the cabin warm up a bit and it's fine.
