    I bought a 2000 9-3 at the beginning of the summer, seemed to be in good condition. The previous owner ran me through all the recent maintenance he had done, seemed knowledgeable, helpful, and the car test drove fine, no CEL or anything. Said he had recently replaced the turbo with a known good...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to posting on here although I feel like I've read the entire site lol. I have an issue where I turn the car off and I hear a noise that I find hard to describe but sort of like metal grinding on metal intermittently (like a fan blade). I'm hoping this isn't an extreme issue...

    On my 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0 sedan, there is a slight ticking noise coming from the rear tail lights. Both sides. You can hear it when inside the trunk. When close to the bulbs - ie. as if you were going to change them. Car is off, all of the flashers are off, the bulbs are not being lit or...
