    Hi all. I have a 2001 manual convertible 2L Low pressure turbo. When we got it a few years ago it ran fine and had plenty of power (not like the 9-5).

  11. Mushy Brakes on a 2005 9-3 Aero Convertible

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Greetings all, For about a year now I've noticed the brakes on my Saab are really mushy and catch really low down almost to the floor. When new, my Saab's brakes were incredible, but then it seemed they just don't work like they used to. I thought it time to change the brakes, and I did change...

    I sadly had to part with my '04 Saab 9-3 convertible. Maintenance was getting to be too much :( I bought the car in '07 and bought a windscreen from the dealership. It's in great condition, I still have the bag for storing it, and I think it cost me about $300 or something equally ridiculous...
