1999 Saab 9-5 2.3t 4dr Wagon

Review

Second SAAB purchased. First a 1995 900s. I like it so much I thought I will buy another. The 1999 95 is a sweet machine!!! Fast, comfortable, safe, quiet with a lot of storage and it looks good sitting in the garage which is usually where it is cause it hardly ever runs. Before 100,000 miles 2 turbos, water pump, alternator, crank sensor, battery, engine temp sensor, transmission safety switch. Check engine goes on and off so does transmission light. Nobody knows why. I researched web taken to repair centers. I am a certified mechanic. It is stuck out front of the house useless as usual. Spent over $3000 in last 20,000mi and still broke again.

Favorite Features

The car is safe, secure, powerful and fun to drive. It has a very solid feeling about it. Made in Europe where automotive quality seems more important.

Suggested Improvements

Mine does not run and hasn't been reliable since about 70,000 miles. The only improvement it needs is to work otherwise the car is perfect. However nobody seems to be able to fix it.
