Subject: WARNING: 9-3 and 9-5 lemons


This is just a warning to anyone looking to purchase either a new or used Saab 9-3 or 9-5. We had a 1999 9-5 which Saab recently repurchased under the North Carolina lemon law - VIN YS3EF48ZX3048687. It took a bit of fighting but when we finally threatened with a law suit, Saab Cars USA buckeled. The dealer (Saab/Volvo of Charlotte) was extremely rude when we turned in the car and laughed that they would be able to sell it for a profit again. In addition, I know 3 other people who have had major problems with their 9-3s and 9-5s (99 and 2000 model years), so something seems to be very wrong at the Saab production facilities. So, this is just a heads up to all you Saab shoppers - if you are looking at a silver 9-5, make sure you check the VIN number with the one above to make sure you don't end up with a lemon (or at lease not pay too much). Its unfortunate its come to this - I always had held Saab in high regards. VG
