1er de l'histoire; belle mare à Thau au milieu
Saab is extending the warranty on its engines to eight years and unlimited miles to address engine sludge problems. Sludge occurs when oil thickens because moisture and contaminants break it down, causing it to gel. That can reduce the lubrication of the engine, causing it to fail. The models are:
The 1999-2003 Saab 9-5 with the turbocharged 2.3-liter four- cylinder engine.
The 2000-02 Saab 9-3 with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder .
The 2000- 03 Saab 9-3 convertible with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
Sludge problems are caused by a defective engine design, contends Clarence Ditlow, the executive director of the Center for Auto Safety, which has received hundreds of consumer complaints about engines destroyed by sludge. "No automaker can explain how a particular engine would attract all the poor maintainers. The 2.4-liter and 3.0-liter Dodge Stratus [engines] do not sludge up, only the 2.7-liter. It is the engine, not the consumer, which is at fault."
Saab Owners Not Impressed by the Company's Aeronautical Heritage
Saab is promoting itself these days as "the car company that's born from jets" but most Saab owners would prefer that company engineers keep their feet on the ground and focus more on theirs car instead of their airplanes.
While Saab claims to incorporate aircraft-inspired design features such as cockpit-like ergonomics and green instrument illumination, Saab owners report to ConsumerAffairs.com that the gadgets are high maintenance and repeatedly malfunction.
Problems consumers are encountering with Saabs include seat belts, transmissions, brakes, keys, timing belt, radio, the onboard computer, heater, air conditioner, air bag light, fuel pump, oil leaks, service light and OnStar equipment.
