    My car

    I have had my car a 1.9TiD SW 150 Vector Sport, with the sports suspension and dark rear glass options for two months now and I have to say its fantastic, if anyone is considering getting the Hirsch conversion 150 to 175 bhp and a massive 370nm of torque go for it. It’s a real flyer the worst mpg I’ve had was 33 and that was 'trying 'the car out. I have achieved 64.3 @ a steady 50mph. However my average is 54+. This is down to the Hirsch conversion. More power, more speed + better mpg =one happy driver.

    My car

    Got the car nearly a year ago. The care packed up after 26 miles and had to be taken to dealer. Many problems since. As with most other drivers, poor fuel economy(42-44)given that this mostly is out of town driving the figures are terrible compared to those published. Spoke to SAAB Technical who say that is should average 52.3 and to take it to local dealer. Local dealer says 42 is about right????. Cabin layout is good but quality is poor. Especially when compared to Audi A4 I had previously. SAAB need to do a lot to catch up with the Germans. Just want SAAB to take it away and put it right.

    My car

    I test drove this car from the local Saab dealership. The first thing to say is that although I am a company car driver, the dealership were extremely helpful.

    Moving on to the car. I currently drive a Jaguar X-Type and the Saab 93 Sport Wagon is streets ahead. The road handling, quality and feel of switches/buttons, gear shift and engine refinement beat the Jaguar hands down.

    Although an estate car it felt like I was driving a saloon or hatch.

    I am about to choose a new company car and the Saab is at the top of the list.

    Initially I wasn't taken with the rear lights, but they ahve grown on me and the car looks the business.

    My car

    Engine management light came on after 220 miles from new. Had the car 6 days ! Limping along. Very slugish low down and needs plenty of revs. My 90 hp Skoda Octavia feels more punchy and immediate.

    What should I expect from the dealer ?
