This site is dedicated to the 2nd
generation Saab 900 - Also known as the NG900 (New Generation)
or GM900 (Due to the involvement of General Motors).
is a wealth of information on the internet about the first, or
'Classic' 900, there is not a lot addressing the new 900,
so I've decided to gather together information, tips and procedures
for the maintenance and repair of the NG900, both from my own experiences
as an owner and from others, to create a specialized site for
the benefit and education of other owners and enthusiasts.
The site content will build over time
and any suggestions for improvements or additions can be sent to
me for consideration. If there is a job that you have done on your
900 or a tip that you feel would be useful then please write it
up (with photographs if possible) and submit it. It could well
be added to one of the technical sections here.
I hope you enjoy the site and hopefully
it could even save you some money one day.
