Hello: Have had my 9-5 since Nov 98. Have had some aggravating problems with the seat (SERIOUS squeaking and popping due to loose coils and poorly fitted plastic) and what I thought was excessive transmission whine. Have also noticed that you have to tune the fader to about (65%-35% rear-front) to get any decent sound production from the rear bass speakers. Other than that, I've been pretty pleased. No computer, transmission, or other serious problems. Had I had the problems you guys describe, Saab would again be the owner of my car. Don't your states have "Lemon" laws? Good luck!
