Subject: Saab Lemon?


Need some advice. I've got a 99 9-3 manual, that's developed an odd problem that my dealer is having trouble fixing. After the car is warmed up, it will not idle while still. It runs beautifully as long as I'm driving, but without fail, it'll just turn off anywhere's from 5 to 15 seconds after I get to a red light and put it in neutral. After it stops, it will start right up. I can coast in neutral, and it stays on, it's only when it is still. So far, the car has been to the dealer twice (3rd time tommorrow) and they have replaced the direct ignition cassette, reprogrammed the computer, installed a new computer and replaced the Trionic 7 unit. They thought that the Trionic replacement fixed it, and it seemed to for about 6 hours, (Maybe just a coincidence) but now I'm back to square one. The car has 9k miles, is 8 months old, and has has been to the dealer a total of 6 days and two trips in the last 1.5 weeks....again, I'm taking it back in tommorrow. So two questions.....1.) Anyone know anything about Maryland lemon laws and 2.) Any ideas that I can pass on to my dealer? Thanks ahead for any responses.
