Saab 9-5 Wagon

    SAAB is a great car, or was a great car. I have owned six of them since 1991. That many miles could be a problem as lots of issues may present themselves.
    Buyer beware.

    Can you give me an idea as to what types of repair or items I should watch for. Someone told me this model has a timing chain not a timing belt, which may not need replacing for a while. Also, the exhaust is stainless steel which should also last longer.

    Thanks again

    Working my way thru these Saab threads. When I saw u say this, i thought I wonder if u feel the same now, almost 6 years later?

    I see you are still a host here. Any chance you missed this question? Thanks

    Here we are 6 years later and they are finally doing it. But not with the turbo 4 cylinder :(

    Plus it is gone upscale farther than the extra 2 drive wheels should warrant. :(

    Here we are 4 years later. Very curious to hear about your Saab experiences so far? Still plan to keep for another 6 years?

    I see you haven't logged in since you bought it. Hopefully you will get an email notifier and let us know how you like it still almost 4 years later?

    Well Sid I have made my way thru all 1000+ posts. And as it turns out, you haven't been talking to yourself. (in reference to about 3 of your posts thinking that no one was reading them). So I saw your last post and it would appear u did hand in your lease. Curious tho if you are missing the 9-5? What did you end up getting after?

    The car has 88,000 mi on it but I've had trouble starting the car and it stalls - recently had it repaired for bad ignition coil and oxygen sensors. I thought I'd sell it on my own after the repairs were made but not sure what the best route is at this point.

    Overall exterior/interior is ok - some scratches and dings.

    Can I sell to someone for parts?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Mr. George, I tried emailing you with some questions but the email address didnt work. I realize your post was from quite a long time ago and am hoping that you still visit the forum occasionally since you seem to be quite knowledgable about saabs.

    We are considering replacing the ECU in our 2001 4cyl 2.3LT wagon. since many parts from 1999-2005 are compatible with my 2001, I purchased an ECU online from a 1999 9-5. The engine is the same I believe B235E. Does anyone know if this ECU will work on my car?
