Do you think Dealer should refund my money since they SHOULD have
had knowledge this was to be immediately stopped by order of SAAB
and any previously done procedure reversed if demanded by customer.?

#1897 of 2237 An eye on 2003 9-5...
Jun 06, 2005 (6:12 am)
I'm considering a 2003 9-5 (4 cyl, 71K miles) as a potential candidate in my search for a newer (and a bit nicer) vehicle. My primary goal is to drive whatever car I select another 100+K miles and enjoy it. I've seen many of the criticisms around the repair history of the European cars, but I'm really taken with the styling. And I like the bit of luxury they offer, too.
So...beyond the normal maitenance just what do I need to be aware of when looking at this car? (Or is the "normal" maitenenace enough to be scared away?...) And what should I be expecting at 71K miles and beyond?
I have no history with Saab at all, so anything you can offer would certainly be appreciated.

all i can say is based on my experience is to stay away from saab after 50,000 miles.
i am going on 85,000 miles no major problems but with this new engine oil deal --read above --and what i have heard ,i suggest that you think before you buy

I'm about to turn 100k on on a 01 95 Aero that I bought as a certified used with 33k in 03. I get great service from Just Saab in Fairfield, OH, the car has been almost faultless, and where else can you ge that performance and 30+ mpg on the interstate?

Did your car just die and then eventually restart. I am going on my 3rd summer of trying to find out why my car is stalling in the heat. In the winter its just fine but once its over 85 degrees I will be driving along and its almost like it ran out of gas but if Iet it sit for awhile it starts back up. I have it with a new mechanic right now and they still can't narrow it down. Can you give me more information on your cassette issue?

I am right now trying to find out why my 2000 Saab 95 is stalling on me. For the last 3 summers whenever it gets over 85 degrees, randomly my car will just stall. If I let it sit for awhile it will start back up but this can take an hour or so. I have had it into 2 different mechanics, neither can get it to die on them and haven't figured out for sure what it is. The think it could be a fuel pump but not sure since it has been going on for a few summes now. I am getting really frustrated and was referred to this website to maybe find someone who has had a similiar problem.
