Saab 9-5 is a car I rate (owned 2), very comfortable, imo better seats than mig, but not many round here agree with me ;). Overall smaller than the mig, but not unduly.

Look for post 2004, these had improvements to the crank case breather system and also signalled a change from 4 to 5 speed auto box.

These suffered from blocked oil pickups in the sump leading to oil starvation, Look for an aero spec as these should have had fully synth oil to start with which minimises the issue. However, most cars have now either had the sump dropped and cleaned, or they've expired.

Springs last about 75000 miles, as do rear shocks on estates, but not much to change.

DI cassettes can fail and cost 220 to replace (usually last about 150k).

Parts aren't a problem, other than certain body panels and led lights on the very late (insignia based) 2010/11 cars. The best indie specialists are Neo Brothers and Parts for Saab's.

Are you Irish? It would explain a lot.  ;D
No. 

I think the explanation is probably that I am a lot more intelligent, better educated and and better informed than you.



But inexperienced. That's the only explanation for stating such a thing in a thread about the most contentious and unsolvable political problem for the last 3 decades. Although doing so in any political thread is a pretty daft thing to do.

There's no guarantee that a straightened/repaired wheel will be perfectly balanced. Not all damage can be repaired either; none of the local firms will straighten a FWD offset wheel that's buckled on the outside edge.

Car was already a Cat C anyway Dave, so only worth pennies. Now i have matched the new front dents with the existing rear ones  ;D there is now too much damage to make repairs viable. Unfortunately DG , the Vectra which is nearest to me is a 2.2 petrol so may have to look a bit further afield. How  about a Saab 9-5?

Saab 9-5 is a nice car in my mind,cheap and lovely seats although body and trim parts aren't easy now
