Subject: Just leased '02 Viggen 5dr and have some Questions


Hi all, The wife and I just leased a '02 Viggen. This will be my 4th Saab and our 2nd (Our 1st new one all others have been used). Got it for just under 35k. I've been driving around today (even though it is hers <G>), and have noticed a couple of peculiar quirks that I've never seen in a Saab before. I have not yet read the manual, so if the answers to my questions are there feel free to tell me (nicely though). 1: The radio will occasionally turn itself off between driving sessions. By this I mean, I'll be driving, and make a stop to go into the store or something, and when I turn off the car the radio is still in the on position. When I come out and restart the car, the radio will be off. This to me is strange. I've never seen anything like this. Does anyone else have this problem? If so how do I change this behavior. 2:The ACC will occasionally turn itself off between driving sessions. By this I mean, I'll be driving, and make a stop to go into the store or something, and when I turn off the car the ACC is still in the on position. When I come out and restart the car, the ACC will be off. This to me is strange. I've never seen anything like this. Does anyone else have this problem? If so how do I change this behavior. 3: I'd like to hear from anyone who has gone to Viggen Flight Academy. What is it like, is it worth it, and most importantly, can both my wife and I attend? Other than that I have to say I love this car. I've had a '85 900, 88 SPG (Both sold and still in use today) and now own a '94 9000 CSE. Love the CSE and wish I could have gotten a 9k Aero, but they were too much $$$ at the time I bought this last year. Viggen is smooth and very quick and fun to drive. I like the CSE, but the extra 30 HP make a big difference on the freeway when going to pass. Is there any way of bumping the CSE to 230HP? I look forward to many years of driving this beautiful car. E-mail replies to me at CA9000CSEnopsamlobal.net Thanks Craig
