2003 SAAB 9-5 Aero 2.3 High Output turbo from North America
Fghter jet - hold on, keep up if you can!!!
To date, bulbs burned out in upper SID display. Dealer charged $70.00 to replace the bulbs.
Fuel pump went out; covered under extended warranty $800.00 repair.
My worst gripe is with GM who took over Saab... my Onstar service no longer exists due to the switch over to (digital service). I've been informed by GM / Saab that although GM has made a retro fit kit for the switch for GM products, there are no plans now or ever for GM or Saab to make a kit to convert Saab's Onstar system to work... poor customer service in my view!!!
Replaced brake pads front and rear with ceramic pads due to heavy brake dust on wheels.
Stop light failure comes on SID display, although the brake lights work fine. Seems there are glitches with Saab's electrical system!!!
My 2003 Buick Regal was totaled due to being rear ended on the freeway by a hit and run driver...
Went to my local dealer to look at cars, and found a 2002 Cadillac Deville DTS. Just as I was about to sign on the dotted line, out from the service bay comes this beautiful vehicle; my now 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero triple black!!! I inquired with the salesperson about the vehicle and took a test drive.
Now I understand the saying "BORN FROM JETS". This car drives and handles like you would not believe.
It's loaded to the max: factory moonroof, front and rear heated seats, which are full of support and adjustments, cooler in the glove box, hid adjusting headlights / fog lights, auto trans with paddle shifters on the steering wheel, heated mirrors, sport and winter mode for transmission, added for flare green turn signal bulbs front and side marker, custom black and chrome 18" wheels and low profile tires, satellite radio, chrome dual exhaust tips, tinted the windows lots of options on this jet...
If no more electrical problems pop up, then I would be inclined to keep this car forever??
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

06/25/10 - 137,000 and still going strong... Trans sometimes shifts rough after turning a corner, seems to occur after freeway driving... my Saab service tech says the trans fluid may simply need to be changed... we shall see.
Keep the reports coming. I am considering buying one.
