I highly doubt that is a real review.
At 20,000 miles it is covered under warranty. Especially for a 2006 model. Warranty is 50K/5 miles. For 2007, it is 100K mile powertrain.
In the US you also get 3 years/36,000 mi. free maintenance.

I have a 2006 9-3 SAAB, and although I love the performance of the car (I.E., handling, power, etc), I have certainly had my problems and I am wondering if I should purchase an extended warranty. I have 47,000 miles on my car and so far I have had minimal problems, but the service at the dealership is poor!
The problems first:
1) The "hanging cup holder" broke twice (I am not sure if the engineering staff thought this design all the way through).
2) Both lights have failed.
3) The fuel line stopped working!
This last problem was the most frustrating, because I had taken the car to the dealer because it would not start, but was hesitating when turning over the key in the ignition. To make a long story short, the car eventually started and when I took it to the dealer to have the problem diagnosed, the dealer told me "he could find nothing wrong." So we took the car home. 1 week later the car had to be towed because the same problem occurred only this time, the car did not start. Fortunately, the fuel line was under warranty...
So, I am wondering if anyone could respond to whether or not I should purchase an extended warranty.
I asked the service manager about my car's problems and I got the response that it was due to my poor luck that resulted in me getting a lemon. He reassured me that 98% of the other SAABs were "just fine."

Seeing that you work for Saab, could you tell me if you have come across this problem with a 2007 9-3 Sports Sedan 2.0 T Model before, and if so, what is the fix?
The problem I'm having occurs after I've driven the car for a period of time (car is fully warmed up) and I stop, park the car, leave it for 1/2 to 1 hour, and when I try to restart, it does not appear to be getting any gas. If I try several times, and assist with pressing the accelerator, it will finally start (rough at first, but clears quickly). This is an intermittent problem, that only seems to occur after stop/restart, and when the car is warmed up.
I've replaced the plugs, cleaned the throttle body etc. but the problem persists. I've been told that it could be a software update or a need to replace the crankshaft positive sensor. Do you have any thoughts or advice with this problem?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
