Re: update us with your mpg

I have noticed that the DIC is usually + or - 1 mpg to my calculations. I track every fill-up and calculate the mileage. I did this with my 98 Grand Prix GTP for 7 years. It was interesting when I...

Re: Cabin air filter is possible!

Looking on rockauto.com at the Saab 9-3 cabin air filter replacement, I could not find any dimensions. It is rectangular but in the pictures it doesn't appear to be 10x8. Prices range from $13.23 for...

Re: Aura GL electric failure

Picked up the Aura GL today and drove the 45 minutes home. Initial impression following the repair is that the activity of the BAS is much milder. Not as jerky when engaging and disengaging the...

Re: Meet the Next-Generation Saturn Aura

Sad to see that they are not going to offer a dual-mode powertrain :tear:. Simply upgrading the BAS technology will not cut it for dramatically improving mileage like a 2 mode system. I would really...
