Agreed...it was not pleasurable to shovel out a bucket full of money only to have these problems with such a new car. The only saving grace was that my Saab dealer's service has been second to none. Having been through the service grind before with typical American car service shops, I was pleasantly surprised to find Saab's service to be second to none. They provided loaner cars and even at home pickup/dropoff service. While, it was annoying to have the problems to begin with, it was clear the dealer wanted the problems cause as little pain as possible. This was a huge difference compared with my prior American car dealership experiences. Thanks to the dealership, as of today, the car is in purrfect condition, and I'm loving it! The key is to find a good dealership. - tex
