Saab is a Swedish car producer that is known for quirky and iconic styling, dashboard layouts inspired by planes, turbocharged engines and unreliability. Saab was a subsidiary of General Motors through the 1990s and 2000s, but in 2009, the brand was shut down as part of the GM’s restructuring. When GM dropped the brand, it was acquired for a brief time and continued production. The acquirers eventually went bankrupt and buyers of Saabs sold after February 2010 do not have a warranty.
Saab became popular with the Saab 900, a two and four door sedan that featured a hatchback. The 900 was innovatively styled and had a number of quirks such as the ignition being placed on the floor of the car instead of the dashboard. Saab was an early car company to use turbochargers in its engines and one of the first to install wipers on its headlights.
The Saab 900 was succeeded with the 9-3 and a larger 9-5 later debuted. The Saab 93 also was available with sportier trims such as the Turbo and the Aero. The Saab brand has many loyalists and there are rumored purchasers on regular basis – often with radical business plans including all electric lineups.
“Excellent video for headlamp replacement. Thanks. ”
“I just stumbled to your site when trying to figure out how to change the headlight bulb on a 2005 Subaru Outback. The video was specific, clear, and broken into small steps - this was very helpful; you are now absolutely the first place I'll go for car care issues. Thanks! ”
“You website saved me $$$$$ and gave me the CONFIDENCE to fix my car problem myself! I'm a 45-year-old mom andI knew absolutely nothing about my Honda Odyssey worked. After watching your clear, concise video tutorials, I learned how to check & change fuses and replace headlight bulbs....... in just 1 day! I also taught my 11-year-old son what I learned today too. Thank you CarCareKiosk!!!! ”
“When other sites suggested I remove the back seat of my 99 Pontiac to get to the "third light" brake light, your videos showed me the easy way to access and change it through the trunk. Thank you so much for saving me time and extra effort on this and many other projects. I will continue to use your site for a very long time. ”
“I can't tell you how grateful I am for your simple, easy to follow and complete videos. Having recently purchased a 2004 Ford Excursion I've been to your site 5 or 6 times now to find out how to do the $100 mechanic jobs - like changing light bulbs - and every time I've found the videos incredibly helpful. At age 67 I figured my days of doing anything on a car were long over with all of the computerization but your site has showed me that there's still hope :-) Thanks so much for being there! ”
