Re: Shifter Issues - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I have never looked deeply at the shifter in the 9-3SS, but I'd say with absolute confidence someone could damage the shifter by not using it properly. Over the years I've had careless people damage shifters on numerous cars - Fords, Alfas, Saabs, VWs - because they aren't aware of shifting features (like lockout collars, key lockouts, or differently placed gears. I generally don't hand my keys to anyone as a result, but when I do I make a specific point to call attention to how it works. At least then when I get it back broken I can remind them they were warned. My last instance was a valet who came running back to the station to ask me to back my CTS-V out because he couldn't get it into reverse.... I was annoyed, but at least he didn't break it trying. :(
