1999 Saab 9-5 V6t 4dr Wagon

Review

We bought our 9.5 wagon new and drove it approximately 10,000m per year. After a very short period, we began to experience a broad range of mechanical issues and failures. This was in spite of the fact that we brought the car back to the dealer for every scheduled maintenance item. The list of failures is very long and the costs have been very high. The final straw was when, after replacing the timing belt as required, the bearing in the timing belt assembly failed and the engine was destroyed. Do not buy this car under any circumstances unless you are ready to pay for many repair bills and want to become best friends with a mechanic.

Favorite Features

When it was running it was a great car to drive.

Suggested Improvements

Start over on the quality. It is very poor. The number of things that failed after 50,000 miles was shocking.
