2006 Saab 9-3 Problems

Electrical & Lights -- RepairPal and 29 others

the window goes up hits the top and right back down, the man at the saab dealership told me a lot of people have the problem, rather than saab repairing for free he said to hold down the window lock button while i'm putting the window up this seems to work.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

A knocking noise while turning and/or a banging noise when driving on rough roads may develop in the front suspension. This type of noise is commonly caused by a front strut thrust bearing damaged due to water intrusion. Our technicians tell us revised thrust bearings are available to correct this concern.

Engine -- Verified

2.0L engines may become low on engine coolant with no cause found for the coolant loss. Our technicians tell us than in some cases the engine block may require replacement due to porosity.

Brakes -- Verified

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) and/or traction control light may illuminate. This can be caused by corrosion in the (ABS) wire harness connector at the right front wheel speed sensor due to water intrusion.  Corroded connectors should be cleaned or replaced as necessary to correct this concern.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The air blend system in the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system can have problems, which can cause the AC controls to be stiff, or a lack of HVAC control.
