    Today I just noticed that the engine light remains on after starting up my car. I'm not sure if this happened today or if it's been some day now, I just noticed it.

    Hello all, I recently purchased a 2007 Saab 95 Aero, very happy with it, the handling was better than what I was expecting and the overall design is just not only beautiful but realistic in the sense that there's no eye candy it's simple and sleak - everything has a purpose. My engine light...
