Did anyone ever hear that in the '99 and up model year 9-5's have an issue with the fuel tank? The problem is that when you come to a stop, the inertia of the gasoline shifting in the tank causes a kick in the rear of the car. Almost like something has shifted in the trunk! I brought my car in for service today and complained of this issue, they dropped the fuel tank and installed a baffle in it to remedy this problem. Don't you think Saab would have corrected this 3 years ago when it was discovered! Secondly, the technician sprayed a foul smelling air cleaner in the cockpit, supposedly to rid the car of any gasoline smell. This destroyed my new car smell, I was real pissed about that! -- Tia, DrB 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero 1996 Mazda Miata
