I've talked to owners of a 2003 9-3, 1999 9-5 (which has had some electrical issues) and a 1997 900 and they all burn a mix of low and not as low gas. The guy with the 900 says it knocks in the summer if not. -D meld_b wrote: > I'm closing in on buying this car... anyone want to talk me out of it? > It's got 127K on it...
