Need another car
By redsaabfun on
2000 Saab 9-5 2.3t 4dr Sedan
For the first several years we owned this car, it was our weekend car. So there was very little that went wrong. We only put 4k miles p/year on it. Once it became my wife's every day car, the problems started ramping up. Lost the serpentine belt 50 miles from home at 14,000 miles. Two water pumps, digital display replaced once, turbo problems. The car is in the shop right now for yet another water pump, that was replaced, yes you guess it, just past the shop warranty of 1 year or 12k miles.
Interior is great. Much more standard features for the money than most vehicles in teh same class. Handles great. Great snow car!
As others have stated, reliability past 20k miles would sure be nice.
