This week my rear differential was serviced. Fresh oil and filter applied. Apparently, Opel has packaged together filter + seal and shaved more than $100 off the price.
Today I picked up my NG 9-5 after having the engine management sytem upgraded by Hirsch. It may not sound that much different – 260 hp versus 220 hp, but I just say:
Oh my god
The engine now revs like an eager maniac and both torque and accelerator response feels much improved. The upgrade is worth every penny (or Swedish krona).
I wish Hirsch was still around for the US. What did you pay? It used to be hefty, but it did not hurt the warranty which was valuable.
I payed the equivalent of $ 2000 for for the upgrade. I guess the price is quite high compared to many upgrades readily available for diesel turbos. Hirsch experience and the end result still make it a worth while investment in my point of view. I still love my bio-powered 95
Last week I purchased a beautiful 9-5 Vector MY 2011 with only 17000 km on the clock. Fjord blue with parchment leather interior. I’m so very impressed with this car so far. It is is extremely fun to drive and very comfortable. I also own a couple of Jaguars that I like a lot, but I absolutely love my new SAAB
Next week the 220 hp 2,0 l…[Read more]
Well, I’m at 41,000 miles and the car is starting to misbehave. I had to replace both key batteries – following the recommended sequence found in the owners manual. Now I get an error message saying “2 keys programmed”. Sometimes the car starts – sometimes it won’t. And I got a (one time) code of Pump failure or control pump (basically…[Read more]
I took the car to the shop today and it turns out the car needed a new car battery. So if you start getting wild codes and the car is not turning over (as it should), *think* battery replacement.
That is a pity to read that you are getting issues.
I have now more than 120.000 KM, or 75.000 miles, on my 2010 9-5 and have only had some electrocic issues which were immediately repaired by my dealer.
I really cannot miss this fine car which still drives as if she was just brand new.
Just added a few images of my carbon fibre dash in the media section of this group.
2011 NG 95 @ 40000 miles
I am the new caretaker of a 2011 95 Turbo 4 with 6 speed manual.
Bought the car from the original owner in early June and have now logged 6000 miles on it. Just rolled over 40000 yesterday.
Thus far the vehicle is everything I expected and more.
I have at least 500,000 miles in the drivers seat of previous Saabs…[Read more]
