Quiet here, as usual. One of the rear HID lights, right side was out the other day and then came back. Based on NG9-5 owners, that’s a bad sign. However, we’ve had the car two years and excepting the brake booster issue, it’s been great.
Well, according to this article http://thesaabguy.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/3-car-seats-across-in-a-saab-wagon/, you can fit 3 in the 9-5 but I’m not sure if the 1.5 inches less will still work. The Diono car seats […]
Anyone replaced the battery? I had an issue that apparently has killed the battery in the process. I read it’s an unusual replacement?
So, I’m sort of talking to myself here, but I just had some (warrantied) repairs done. The brakes were engaging randomly and had to have the power booster replaced. Then, the shop found that the brake pedal assembly also had to be replaced — that was a doozy – 6 1/2 hours of labor at $145/hr. Warrantied. Afterwards, my two year old battery…[Read more]
Appreciating that I am in an empty room here, there were four things that had to be done. I do not believe they weren’t related. Four things do not fail at once. Either something was misdiagnosed or damage was inadvertantly caused to one thing in the process of “fixing” another:
Brake pedal assembly

I am starting to have the brownish color happen on my wagon. Thankfully it isn’t too bad yet but it would be nice to have the correct replacement as an option should it get any worse.
That is strange because it is almost the opposite in the US. Used car loans usually have a higher interest with the same concept you mentioned for why they are higher because the value is lower and the banks want […]
The new V60 looks great. It’s a problem that when the media starts saying “This brand is going bye-bye” it becomes a third party fulfilling prophecy. That’s because prospective buyers read stuff like this and panic—-driving sales down and actually doing harm to the company. If the media repeats it enough, it often comes true. Volvo…[Read more]
Will this be their first production of steel for passenger cars? I see information on their website about commercial/cargo type vehicles but nothing about passenger vehicles. Great idea and this will hopefully […]

As a U.S. owner of two “new” Saabs (and one old one), this still makes me proud. When asked, “They don’t make those anymore, do they?” at least now I can say “Oh, they do. They just don’t sell them in the U.S., yet.”
The US Gov’t did make money on the Hoover Dam. It took about 65 years to pay it off and start making a profit. After it was paid off, many other differed financial commitments required payment.
Your point is […]
I think this is the main reason it is so important for NEVS to get in the media to keep confidence in the brand. I met a NG 9-3 owner the other day who took her car for a 60K mile service at what used to be the […]
In Angelo’s defense, he did write ” If an arrangement like this isn’t possible or if parties are unwilling…” about them being SINO as he put it.
In my opinion it is a Catch 22. If NEVS were able to pick […]
This Saab was built by Spyker wasn’t it? Not Saab AB and the previous ones were by GM who owned Saab Automobile the same way the NEVS owns them. Well maybe not exactly the same way but essentially the same thing. […]
My wife was rear-ended in her 9-4x Aero by a taxi in July. I inquired immediately to Saab Parts NA and was told 6-8 weeks on the bumper. I feared this to be a catch-all estimate for any part they didn’t know how […]
