    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've been having a weird AC issue for the last year or so that's been too intermittent to pin down. I've looked through other threads and gotten some hints, but haven't found this same problem. I was hoping I could list the symptoms and see if anyone can help. AC blows super cold when it's...

    I have a 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0 turbo. I have been at a conference for work for the past two days. I went to leave my apartment this morning and my stop struggled to start, but it did start. It gave me a warning on the panel that the traction control failed and that I need to contact a Saab...

  4. Help! door functions failure

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So the other morning I woke up to rain (the first time in over 2 months) and my windows were rolled half down. I used the driver's side to roll up all the windows, dried up the seats etc. Now for some reason none of the driver's side door functions (windows, window lock, door lock, mirrors...

    Has anyone experienced this? It's the second time this happens, and it seems quite a coincidence that it has been raining on both occasions.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, I am a new owner of a 2001 9-3 convertible that leaks a little in heavy rain. I haven't ever had a convertible before, and I expect a little leakage from a ten year old top. But I wonder how much is a sign that something is wrong. I just came back from driving back from a weekend...
