  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Greetings saab owners, I plan on buying a saab 9 3 with the 2.3t 230hp engine. I am not really a saab person, i wasn't interested in saabs before, but they are quite nice. From what I've read the 2.3t is the best to reach more hp - I would be happy with 300hp for a daily car. My questions are...

    Hello Saab Community!! I've known Saab's my whole life but I haven't grown to like them until 3 years ago when one of my family members bought a 2004 9-3 2.0t I found myself in love with the way that Saab's looked, handled and drove. I only wish I had a Saab sooner but now I am happy to say...

    Hello all. Like the title says, I recently picked up a 2001 Saab 9-5 Wagon here in Seattle with 117k on the clock. I previously owned a 1992 Toyota pickup that I got well over 250k before gifting it in fine running shape, so I am comfy with both routine maintenance as well as moderately deeper...

    Stupid... yes I know probably to ask. However, I have a 95 saab 900s non turbo. Better question, would it even be worth putting upgrades into a non turbo at all?

    Hello all, I'm looking at a '93 900 turbo, $150k miles. Can anyone tell me what it's like to own one of these cars? I own a '66 corvair, and can do my own work. I am not an expert mechanic, but so far I have done all my own work. Will this car constantly need to be worked on, or just...
