Default New ride: SC 2.0T Aut.

Hi all,

I just got new 9-3 SC 2.0T Aut (MY 2007). It has Fusion Blue color with Parchment leather interior. Car feels very nice and responsive. http://www.geocities.com/kari.tammi/Saba

One thing I'm wondering is a buzzing noise during an upshift at 2500-3000 rpm. It sounds little bit like knocking noise. Has anyone had similar experiences?

The link in your post doesn't work.. it should be: http://www.geocities.com/kari.tammi/Saba

Beautiful SC, one of the best color combinations imo.

Sweet color! I wish my SC was fusion blue - I saw a SS with that color today.

Wulf & MrRun2Fast, thanks! Fusion Blue is a sort of interesting color. It looks quite dark on Saab brochure, but then it is pretty light in sunshine. We had to take Pachement interior because we thougth the colors fit together. Let see how well it endures some wear and tear (we have a kid).

I haven't seen too many SCs in Chapel Hill - Raleigh area. Actually, other SCs I've seen have been on a dealer's parking lot. SSs I've seen here.

I don't know how I was able to put link wrong again. Many thanks for your help.

Nice ride! That is a nice color. We went with Titan Grey but that looks pretty slick!

Get used to your SC being the "only one" in town - I've seen two other SC in probably two years. This car is definately different!

Nice car!


My wife and I just bought one yesterday, same color, slate interior. We also got the premium 17 package. I will take some pictures this weekend...

back in the Saab fold after 10+ years of absense. I had an 86 900S in college.

Here is the same car with the Premium 17 package (our salesman told us they are discontinuing the package when we picked it up yesterday - we had already bought the car, it wasn't a sales tactic...)

Here's my 2006 2.0T SC in Greensboro. loaded all options. Bought at the Raleigh, NC Saab dealership though ... the 17 inch 2006 Aero wheels are waiting for shipping damage repair and new skins before mounting ...

Awesome pics AlexD!

I hope to post some of my pics as well. BTW, the 06' is so much better than the 07' Impala,Mablibu interior (no offense to the 07' owners).

Oh and love the white Linear in the background...

Regards,

Thanks for the kudos! Just wait until I get the 06 Aero Wheels on there!
Putting 235/45-ZR17 General UHP's on there. Made by Continental, but have to get some shipping damage fixed first.
Our Linear is a riot. It seems to be one built on a perfect day in Trollhattan. It runs very strong for a 2.0t and the lightweight of the linears helps too. It's almost more fun to drive than the SC. Only under WOT is the SC noticably faster than our Linear and I love the basic approach of the linear. Really the manual HVAC controls on the Linear are much better than any climate control that is never really quite right for me. I always liked manual controls better than auto stuff ...
