Terrible hot!
By adonis23 on


2001 Saab 9-5 Aero 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I live in the midwest and during this summer of 2012, we have experienced extreme daily heat (99-107 degrees F).
My 9-5 Aero automatic usually performs flawlessly inside and out, but the heat has brought odd and annoying electrical problems:
There is a "bing-bong" noise that let's you know when there is a problem, which would be helpful if it didn't do it every minute or two; the gas gage fluctuates from completely empty back to the accurate reading while the TSC/off light is on despite pushing the button, and I have replaced the same headlight three times this year.
I love the car though.
I drove to NYC and was able to get 31.0 mpg, which is incredible with 230 bhp.

Best Features

"SPORT" button Sound system Interesting seats Reverse fog lights Seat warmers 230 bhp 31.0 mph highway Great value Uniqueness

Worst Features

Fix the alarm. It's garbage
