SAAB 9-7x owners have reported a total of 217 problems for their cars built in the 5 model years listed in the chart below. The chart shows the number of problems reported across all service years for each given model year of the SAAB 9-7x. The 2006 SAAB 9-7x cars have the most problems reported (78 problems).
The following chart shows the 20 most common problems for SAAB 9-7x cars. The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's exterior lighting (44 problems). The second most common problem is related to the vehicle's electrical system (36 problems).
|Problem Category||Number of Problems|
|Gasoline Fuel System|
|Other Fuel System|
|Engine And Engine Cooling|
|Electronic Stability Control|
|Vehicle Speed Control|
|Unknown Or Other|
|Traction Control System|
It would not be fair to compare the SAAB 9-7x of an older model year to newer model years since older vehicles have been in service longer and thus are expected to have more problems. In order to compare the reliability across 9-7x model years, we use the PPMY index which is defined as the problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year. A smaller PPMY index indicates greater reliability of the given model year cars.
PPMY = P / S / Y * 1000,
where P = total problems reported during the life of a SAAB 9-7x model year; S = total units sold of the model year; Y = years since the debut of the model year (the age of the vehicle).
The results are shown in Table 3.
Another way to measure the reliability across the model years of the SAAB 9-7x is to use the total number of problems reported during the vehicle's first year in service, as shown in the Table 4.
