    New member, just bought a 2007 Saab 9-3...

    Hi everyone, I needed a vehicle asap and saw a nice Saab 9-3 near me for sale and recently bought it. I did see though, on the carfax, it had replaced the engine mounts, crankshaft position sensor, and fuel level sending unit within the past 3 years.

    Im not too familiar with Saab's in general, but are these big issues down the road? They were replaced, which is good, but can these cause problems down the road? The vehicle has almost 80,000 miles on it.

    Aside from that, the car seems fine.

    It doesn't sound like you should be concerned about these replaced items. And with 80K miles, it is very low mileage for its age (7K miles a year) so should have a lot of life left in it. Just keep up on the maintenance and enjoy it for many years.

    Hi, also a new member, and bought my 9-3 this year. My 9-3 '07 has intake valve issues. It sometimes dies on cold start or has rough idle, sometimes it doesn't. At some point I might take the head off and get it fixed. It will eventually lose a lot of compression.
