The only problem you've had in common with my 900SE V6 (bought in August 95) were the burnt out headlamp bulbs, which occurred out of wear item warranty for us. Our other major problems: 1) brakes brakes brakes. The rear ones squeal. Dealer and Saab gave up, had to fix them myself! The entire system "clunks" when first used and you can't stop. Spent a lot of time at the dealer for brakes. 2) passenger seat leather started to come apart. (I use the Saab leather conditioner every month or so and the car is parked indoors). We got a new seat cover installed but they put it on incorrectly - I showed them how to fix it but it still doesn't look perfect. 3) interior trim, both visors broke (a common problem). Glovebox catch broke and a new complete glovebox had to be ordered in from Sweden, took less than two weeks! 4) we get the clogged wiper nozzles too but that is just part of owning a car! Most of my cars have had this problem at some stage. I clear it out with a needle or pin when I wash the car. Our engine has been flawless, no leaks, no noises, runs great. We have the automatic so we weren't afflicted with the shifter problems. Oh, it did need a new crank sensor, but they picked that up during a service. Current problems, waiting for the 240 mile round trip to the dealer who won't have the parts anyway: 1) driver's seat belt plastic button thing cracked 2) steering wheel loose (can be pulled in and out about 1/16" inch and it isn't the height adjuster) 3) noisy AC compressor 4) brakes (again) maybe this dealer will at least acknowledge it. The cars are much better quality than the company that sells and supports them in America. How many dealers does your state have? Glenn
