Lovely looking 9-3. I've owned a Laguna, trust me keep the Saab and get rid of the Lag, Renault invented the electrical gremlin! :evil: Sunroofs that will open but won't close, window mechs the same, key cards not recognised, immobiliser faults for no reason, water in the footwells, wiper motors under water (see previous fault). They are a nasty, loathsome evil car.

Yes I hear you Kermit :D
But most of the Lag probs are documented now and fairly straightforward to fix or pre-empt by maintenance and replacement.
Not much different to a Saab really - Ive had loads of things go on Saabs but they are easy to fix due to the forums and knowledge.
The Lag has very low mileage and was very cheap, so if it all goes wrong I can bin it ;)
I was actually looking for a newer 9-5 and the Lag turned up. Hopefully someone will see the diamond my 9-3 is and make me an offer.
Its going on ebay soon, and will be sold :p
