Happily driving my son back to university, and the car started making an awful sound from the engine. I pulled over, and as I did, the car stopped. I turned the engine over and the noise was worse, and car would not start up again. Got towed to my local garage, and they informed me that my engine had seized up. I needed to have a new engine. It has been very difficult to purchase a 2nd hand or reconditioned engine.
Saab now have my car, and are putting in the replacement engine. I have been in contact with Saab UK and the dealership where I bought my car from in 2006; they are not interested, and are not admitting that there is a problem with these cars. Don't know where to go from here. I feel they should bear the cost. I am very disappointed in Saab's customer service, or lack of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
