I think I will paint it yellow so that it looks more like the lemon that it is
Within the first 18,000 miles the On-star computer needed to be replaced three times, I discontinued service so I don't know if it works now.
At around 14,000 miles my steering wheel became loose and the steering column was replaced.
At about 15,000 miles the drivers window would not stay in the closed position, the dealer replaced something in the door and now it just rattles.
At about 30,000 miles my sunroof was not closing properly and I am waiting for parts for that still.
At 32,000 miles the left rear door would not lock electrically.
At about 33,000 miles the left rear window stopped working as well they replaced a computed for that issue.
At about 34,000 miles the passenger seat would not move in any direction, which required another computer to be replaced.
Around 35,000 miles my front wheel bearings needed to be replaced.
I have been in the dealer three times for oil consumption, At 35,000 miles I am waiting for a new engine to come in so they can replace that.
While I am waiting on my engine at 35k and some change I noticed that my car is making front end noise when I turn It sounds like a ball joint, but I have not had that looked at yet.
This car is a fantastic driving machine, I just wish I didn't have to visit the dealer at least once a month.
SAAB customer service is great the people are courteous and helpful, I however would rather not know them so well.
SAAB electrical parts are terrible it is an electrical nightmare.
I am so glad I have a warranty because the dealer probably puts about $500. a month in parts alone in just my car and also pays someone to do it.
I enjoy the 9-5 as well I seem to drive the loaner almost as much as my own.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
