More InformationThis is my 2001 Saab 9-5 aero, which I absolutely love to death, but it is time to say goodbye after recieving it in January. It is a European luxury Sedan built to compete with the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes Benz E Class. Thus forth, it has all the amenities; Leather and wood interior, power seats, heated and cooled front seats and heated rear seats, sunroof, dual zone automatic climate control, and lastly the famous center ignition. This Saab is also an aero, or rather a performance variant (Similar to an M sport). This results in a rather dynamic driving experience rooted around the transversely mounted turbo charged 4 cylinder engine making 250bhp. This car is a dream on the freeway and fun when the roads get twisty, but it must be maintained. This brings me to my next point. I have to say goodbye to the car due to the simple fact I can longer give it the attention it demands. There is an engine Blow by, and also there tends to be small issues due to the fact that before I received the car, it sat for about 2 years, but I feel I have taken care of most of these issues as listed below. The one issue I have yet to take care of is the blow by. It is carbon build around the piston head that doesn’t allow the pressure created by the oil being compressed on the downstroke to be released. This affectively squeazes oil out of the engine, reulting in a leak.
