    The Saab love affair continues

    Hi everyone. I recently posted on my 2005 Saab 9-3 convertible that I've had one year and the changes I've made. Well as fate would have it another Saab came online that i simply could not ignore. My 2004 Mazda 3 with 150k has been having starting and transmission issues, so now I'm the proud...

    2005 Saab 9-3 - One year into ownership

    Sorry, nail polish remover. Believe it has something to do with the Acetone. Mine still look perfect after a year, found it on YouTube and lo and behold after all my cleaners failed, my wife's nail polish remover took the grime right out.

    2005 Saab 9-3 - One year into ownership

    Hi everyone, I bought a 2005 Saab 9-3 Arc Convertible from a neighbor about a year ago for $1,800. Never even considered a Saab but drove it and really liked it, plus I have a 6 year old daughter so rides in the convertible going to get some ice cream is very fun. 132k on the clock when I...

    Inflated Trade-In Value a Scam?

    Go in with your trade in offer and a print out of the GT you want for $33k. Ask for the sales manager. Tell them you want the GT for $31,300 and your trade for $22,300 after they inspect your ride. $9,000 and your corrupt taxes you are still looking under $10k with that deal. I would...

    2017 Mustang Auto Trans ATF Change Interval

    Is this car all show no go? Post some pics always good to see Mustang owners make it their own. As for the ATF you aren't hurting anything by draining at 10k and replacing with quality Redline ATF.

    Control arm ball joint difference, a problem?

    I am not saying there is a problem, and I admit I have no knowledge on the subject. I merely saw one boot appear one way, then the other boot appear quite a bit differently. If it's a non issue and can be easily manipulated during installation I apologize, but I figured I would ask as I only...

    Control arm ball joint difference, a problem?

    I have a 2004 Mazda 3 that is in need of new control arms. I ordered Raybestos control arms (even though Mazda it's the entire control arm, they don't bother with just the ball joint, pressing, etc). I have received both control arms, both are the correct part number and both came double boxed...

    Minor Tire Rot or cause for concern?

    Actually still have the same tires. I will be replacing them this summer when the Michelin Sport 3 A/S's get released. They got through winter without any drama, I believe the opinions that while the outside of the tire is bad with up close shots, its the inside that counts. I dont believe...
