1999 Saab 9-5 2.3t 4dr Wagon

Review

After three previous Saab purchases, the 1999 wagon will be my last. While I love the feel and look of the car, the repair record vs. the price point of the car has led me away from the Brand for any future purposes. All the following repairs occurred before 55,000 miles: 2 headlamps replaced along with the computer chip that controls high beams.2 water pumps - one at 37,000 miles and the other at 55,000 miles.Turbo Assist failure - the shaft of the turbo mechanism sheared off at 55,000 miles and had to replace the entire turbo unit ($1500). Countless light bulbs!

Favorite Features

Superb interior ergonomics. Great features like the integrated child seat booster.

Suggested Improvements

Add another cup holder up front where the driver or passenger doesn't have to do yoga moves to reach a drink.
