I have owned 5 SAABs - a 1983 900, 1989 900 S, 1990 900 S convertible and 1997 900 S convertible. The 2008 has zero remaining interior parts from its original designs, aside from the headlight and windshield washer logos printed on the corresponding controls. The 2008 thus far has had zero issues or electrical problems that were found in previous models. The quirkiness is thankfully still part of SAAB's design; its ignition, is located in the middle console, similar to the original floor concept. The Swedish flavor is still present, as is its outstanding and unusual exterior design. I would recommend SAAB redesign the rear to = original SAAB concept, versus its current generic square format.
The exterior design is very nice. The front of the vehicle still carries a SAAB flavor, while the rear is more compact with its clear tail lights. The seats are very comfortable and safe. The interior controls are designed after the classic 9000/9-5 versus the 900/9-3, which = lost original appeal.
Standard window tinting. Focus on SAAB 900 interior's best features, versus 9000 blueprint when designing interior. The 2008 - 2011 plastic dashboard = cheaper feel than older models. (Volvo, GM, etc., = same plastics problem). Prefer old dashboard design, which = airplane format = easier for user.
