Saab Troubles Continue

What can I say? Last month, I had to get a new short block put into my 9–3, which is basi­cal­ly most of the engine. $6200 worth of parts and labor, glee­ful­ly cov­ered under my extend­ed war­ran­ty.

But, this Tues­day, I decid­ed to ven­ture out of the office for lunch, (this is sub­ur­bia, impos­si­ble to get any­where by foot)… and on the way back, my car just quit on me in the mid­dle of an on-ramp. So, there I am, block­ing traf­fic, wav­ing cars along, and attempt­ing to push the car out of the way, simul­ta­ne­ous­ly steer­ing the wheel.

I hate cars.

saabThe deal­er had to replace some­thing called a “direct igni­tion cas­sette mod­ule”, also cov­ered under the war­ran­ty. But, I also had to buy a new bat­tery, because the stu­pid tow truck left the keys in the igni­tion and killed it. I still can’t quite fig­ure out if the bat­tery is relat­ed to the oth­er replaced part, but I guess I should once again be thank­ful that the car is “cer­ti­fied”.

It seems that I’m not the only Saab own­er with this prob­lem.
