320touring's Shitey Saab 9-5 Fuckitybye 16/1/21

Obviously, with having a frugal, sensible load lugger in the Berlingo, I had to rebel..

A 2003 2.0t Saab 9-5 Vector Estate.

It has a COVID-19 MOT til Jan 21, and 128k on the clock.

 

It's had all the important things done - sump drop, new clutch. Posh tyres too.

There are some issues:

Got it with a flat battery - despite 2 days of charging, the resting voltage is 8.4v so it's toast.

Ignition switch is an 'acquired technique' to get it started - replacement a likely plan.

Bonnet doesn't always release on both sides

Rattle from front suspension

One rear door doesn't work on the central locking

Only the 150bhp 2.0

But MOST CRITICALLY - the snazzy cupholder doesn't work!

It's had a clean inside but badly needs a wash

Anyway, enough nattering:

 

Pikturz

Is this the same engine as a 2006 9-3 with a 2.0 150bhp unit. If so noob tune can probably get this to 220bhp. Not getting this done to my 9-3 is a regret. 

Believe it is:)

Need to work out what I am doing with it, but well aware of noob tune;)

No it isn't, the 9-5 kept using the venerable Saab H engine and the 2006 9-3 uses a GM derived engine.

I like it! Good looking car and a sensible and relatively economical load lugger. 

There is at least one at UPI if bits are needed.

My Dads 1984 900i had the H engine!

Top knowledge on all fronts:)

I have a 2004  9-5  2.0 auto with stage one Noobtune and lowered 35mm--the car is transformed!

Glad you approve - what did you lower it with (brand of springs?)

Nice, these look great in estate form.

Most cars do:)

Wish I could find an 80s 900 for decent money

More importantly does the night panel work?

I discovered two more cup holders in our 9-5 yesterday. Pull down the rear passenger arm rest and they are in the end of that.

if the sctsch are now purchasing the other type of swede

is the world spinning the other way round or summat?

madness

I propose the formation of the SSM.

I will announce meetings to every member by starting up my 9000, as the exhaust is leaking so badly right now they should hear it.
