Morning all!
New to site and SAAB ownership - been a fan for many years, and did have a 9-3 Linear Saloon as my choice of Co Car about 15 years ago.

2008 2.8 Aero Auto - 62,000 miles.

Already aware of some of those classic niggles;
1) Condensation in headlamps - does go when theyre on mind, and has been VERY cold / wet
2) Fuel filler cap - stiff to open (Need to look for a release in the boot)
3) Centre air vent vanes look to be misaligned with the direction vanes?

But already in the limited miles driven, LOVE the manual shift option on auto box, especially in the snow - and the cupholders!! (Child at heart!)
Dont mind admitting a little nervous about 2.8 running and repair costs, but I have not been as excited about ownership of a car since I cant remember when!

Cheers

Alan
