Did you get the mirror from a Subaru dealer and install it yourself? How long ago was it installed?

Hmmm, I noticed today that the fuse to which it's connected was blown. It appears I must have short circuited it with the voltage meter I used to check for 12 volts before the installation. The fuse was tied to my side mirror adjustment and 12 volt cigarette light outlet. When I noticed this and replaced it, the mirror gained power as expected. Thanks for your feedback. It gave me confidence to keep checking for problems. This is the first time I've had a rear view mirror with home link and a compass...very cool! Now I just need to apologize to the Subaru parts dealer that I was talking to so nastily.
#21 of 27 roof rails
Jan 14, 2006 (5:55 pm)
I found a picture online where someone had customized roof rails for there 92x. Has anyone seen or heard of after market roof rails? I assume that impreza roof rails would fit but can't seem to find them for sale. I have the thule system for mine but you have to get the short roof adapter and all that crap on the roof looks ugly.

I just asked my dealership to look into this too. Then I looked in the Saab accessories category and found the rails that would fit the 9-2X. The rails do not go from front to back, rather side to side. They cost about $70, but I couldn't determine if this was for the pair or a piece. Either way, this is not too bad of a price. They don't look like they would be too hard to install yourself, but I would check with the dealership to find out any special requirements. For those who like to kayak, they even offer kayak mounts, but I didn't check this price.

Having only seen one other 92X since I got mine, my heart
stopped when a gold Aero drove passed me outside Safeways
last week 'cos I thought some punk had stolen my ride.
Then I noticed it had the Impreza roof rails installed.
If I hadn't been in a state of shock I might've ran after
him and asked how he got it done; probably at a Subaru
The RackNRoad store near me said they could install a
(Thule ?) system where they rivet a rail to the roof, but
I didn't fancy that much.

I have been comparing the differences between the impreza wrx wagon and the 9-2x aero and noticed the saab's towing ability is listed as 1000lbs and the subaru's is 2000lbs. Is this a misprint on edmunds or would the suspension change really effect towing to this degree? Any help would be appreciated, thanks

A number of 9-2x owners have installed Imprezza roof rails by themselves. Involves dropping the headliner, etc. A little searching on saab92x.com will reveal pictures and instructions on how to do it. Rails can be obtained used from Subie owners.

1000 lbs is Subaru's limit for unbraked trailers, perhaps Saab just went conservative and used those numbers.
#27 of 27 mystery ding
May 23, 2006 (4:57 pm)
Looked at the roof of my 2005 Aero when I was washing the windshield today. There is a small appx 1 cm square ding sticking up above the passenger seat back. It's the strangest thing I've seen in a long while. I bought the car about 3 weeks ago from Patrick Motors in Auburn, MA. I didn't notice the ding, if it was there, when I bought it and it was very clean, I noticed it today when I was cleaning bird crap off the roof. It was in the shop last week to have the brake rotors replaced under warranty. I have not washed it since I bought it, due to the incessant rain, have not carried anything in it, and only I and the repairman have been in the car. It is always locked when parked. What does everyonr think? UFO's, or a clumsy repairman with a hammer? The ding was made from the inside, and there's not a mark on the headliner.
