When something goes wrong with your
car and you take it to a mechanic and
tell them you own a Saab and they give
you that look like, I feel really
sorry for you, it's time to invest in
another vehicle. I bought the car for
$2400 and had it 2 years. It had
108,000 miles on it at the time of
purchase. I spent $4,000 fixing it,
and that was without fixing the
transmission (which took 20 seconds to
engage reverse and shifted so hard I
think I lost some teeth). I timed the
0-60 just for kicks and it took 18
seconds just to get to 45. The leather
seats were also hard as a rock. I now
have a 90 Dodge Dynasty and it is
literally twice the car the Saab was.
Sunroof, auto down drivers window,
decent fuel economy.
I actually loved this car. Its looks,
good fuel economy, etc. Don't buy it.
Coast me a fortune...and just when you
think its over something else goes.
Went through 2 trans. One I believe the
oil was accidently drained during an
oil change and never refilled. 2nd was
driving too hard. They have very weak
gear boxes. Happens to Turbos all the
time according to the only half way
decent mechanic I could find. I you
must buy! Drive like an old lady and
cross you fingers!
Looks, cornering ability. riding in the

I purchased my 2-dr 900T about four
years ago and I've been in love with it
ever since. It's one of those cars that
you either love or hate. My favorite
part of the car is its handling. It feel
superb on the road and its got
enough power under the hood for the
race driver in you. Back seat isn't
comfortable for long drives but it
works for what it is. The car has been
in the shop a number of times but
never for the same reason. I've been
told that it's best to purchase a Saab
either after 85k or before 135k miles.
Overall it has been a wonderful car
and it's never left me on the road
waiting for a service truck. I
recomend highly! =)
