  7. Just test drove a 9-3ss 2.0T... Help me evaluate its issues?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop

  11. 9-3SS Sputters at full turbo below 3000 RPM

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2003 Saab 9-3T with a standard transmission. In any gear with the engine below 3000 RPM, if I step on the gas and the turbo peaks (while the engine is still below 3000 RPM), the engine sputters. It's like it's hitting a governor. If I let off the gas (letting the turbo spool down off...
