Car Models: 2007 9-3 1.9 TiD Sport (estate)
Hello all, just dropping in to say bonjour and that I've just come into possession of a fairly ropey 9-3 1.9TiD Sport Estate with 130k on the clock. I've never owned a Saab before and I have to say on first glance, despite a bad ding on the nearside rear door, it's a pretty cool car in surprisingly good nick. Unfortunately it came with no service history at all and the previous MOTs are fairly unrevealing, aware this isn't an issues thread and I will be finding the appropriate threads in good time for the various issues it has.
Before I bought it I had no idea what a rare car it actually is in the grander scheme, I've also never owned a car from a defunct company (unless you count Peugeot) which feels cool, but I'm not sure how much trouble it may give me as a result. Pleased to find an enthusiastic owner base for these and very much looking forward to digging out this cars foibles, ironing them out and giving this car as long a life as I possibly can. Will it be worth it though?

Cheers guys, thanks in advance

If there’s no evidence for it being done before, you need to get the drive belt and water pump changed. A seized pump will take out the belt and cause serious engine damage. Check the workshop thread for the experience of others.
