Home safe.

 

The drive home cured the back ache this morning's drive caused. SAABs have great seats don't they?

 

Once I worked out the cruise control, never owned a car with that before, I just set it to 70 and wafted except for the roadworks where I wafted at 50. It's showing 38.6mpg which more than I expected to get.

 

Is, thanks for being a great seller. Just a couple of questions, it pinged at me about low coolant when I was almost home, does it use some? Plus it smells a bit of oil now, is it leaking somewhere?

I'm chuffed with it though, should last me a few years and I hope to get it to 250k at least.

2.3 petrol turbo auto! Shows what wafting can do to save monies.

I've been out n topped the water up now, didn't need much but the cap was loose. That along with a few coolant drips on the outside of the header tank explains where it went.
Sat n read the handbook while it cooled from the 187miles home so now I know what the buttons do too.
Gonna replace couple of bulbs in the hvac controls because dark buttons annoy me. Plus replace the 'stat as it gets cold on a run, almost fell right down to cold on the gauge after an hour on the motorway & the heater started to struggle to heat. Nowt to do apart from that, it's great.

Oh the locking wheel nut key is in the cubby behind the handbrake. I forgot to mention that.

Did notice that, cheers :)

 

Bushes are only £15 on eBay and Sir_Nutz has offered to lend me the tool - quite tempted even though I'm giving up working on shite

No idea, I just paid a garage to put them in.

 

Steering has always made that noise, a groaning just off centre? It went away for a few days when I put a new drive belt on it & then came back.

Only just seen this thread! Thread title confused me.

 

A couple of HVAC bulbs died. Replacement bulbs aren't that cheap, however 12v model train bulbs should solder straight into the holder and are a lot cheaper. I intended to do it but never got around to it. I desoldered some of the old bulbs from their holders (I think more bulbs have gone since), so should be pretty straight forward to replace cheaply.

I'm rooting for it to get to 300k! Tbh, along as the gearbox doesn't crap itself I reckon the engine and body should be able to do it. Especially if it continues to do motorway runs.

 

Forgot to mention, apart from the oil+filter, coolant and Gearbox mount, I've also done the spark plugs and the pollen filter looked pretty fresh. Plugs are probably helping fuel economy. Air filter is in the bottom right of the car. Need to look up from underneath. Bit of a wierd position. Not checked/changed it as I didn't have a spare when I did the oil+filter & coolant.

There's a bloke on eBay who sells Saab dashboard bulbs far cheaper than the remaining dealers sell them for :)

 

Cool. I'll take a look, thanks.

      NOW EDITED:
      Proper funny-face Multipla
      My wife's car for last 8 years
      ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
      8v turbo diesel that plods on and on.  And on and on.  Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
      Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
      Clutch 2016
      Cambelt 2017
      180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
      Some war wounds well what do you expect, some interior sticky plastics but nothing broken


      Some noisy front clonking to deal with -  was told it's the inner ARB bushings despite MOT man being happy.  Just been turning up the stereo
       
      UPDATE
      Now has a Cat-C marker because of this.  Grrr.  The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k.  Stitched together with cable ties for now.   

      MOT all the way to October
      Roffling at £8.50 a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it.  Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
      We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before.  So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out

      Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
      You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
      This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
      I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago.  I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue.  A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car.  The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped.  That's it really.  Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me.  No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
      She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
      Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home. 
       
      If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.

      126k miles, MOT August.
      I picked this up from AndyW201 about a fortnight ago as a daily to replace the Cavalier whilst I take it off the road, I've done about 1000 miles in it, drives absolutely spot on and Andy has definitely undersold it in his description.
      However, due to buying the A8 from sims and another potential purchase I'm in negotiations with on here, I really need to free up some space - my storage is absolutely maxed with stuff and I now have 4 cars at home annoying the neighbours, I need to make some movement.
      Scrubs up fairly well, it has had some odd touch ups around the body but nothing that overly stands out, decent tyres all round, all electric work, has cruise control so is ideal on A roads/Motorways etc.
      £350 or will roffle at £6 a ticket. Delivery possible.

      I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar. 
      £350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
      Good:
      159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
      Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
      Bad:
      Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
      Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
      Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
      Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
      Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that. 
      Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
       
      I don't actually have many pictures...
