I am head-over-heels for this car. It LOOKS fabulous. They don't call it the Classic for nothing, so European. We turn heads all the time, especially when I open the hood (forwards). The acceleration is sublime and so sexy. It handles curves,mine and the road's. The sound of that engine: from the roar at the start, to the purr of its counterbalanced pistons to the whine of the turbo spooling is all music to me. Made from jets. I'm almost 60 years old and a woman, yet I now lay rubber and do a few donuts from time to time. Life is short.and I LOVE her!

only 1 owner, bought at 49,000 miles.Was weekend car. The stock CD/radiocombo died 2 months after purchase due to a design flaw in the amp. Only had a bad thermostat, but needs a new master cylinder for clutch. Other than that,works fine. Heats up quickly in winter.A lot of body flex, but thats a given for a convertible. Its a blast w/ the turbo, but something might be broken w/my car b/c it gets around 13 MPG currently. Excellent cornering, only problem is the low ground clearance. Reliability varies, can get 60,000 or300,000 out of various parts, it depends on your luck. Beware, if you can't get apart second-hand, a new/refurb part will cost you.

This SAAB is on it's last legs.
Although cosmetically perfect, the
engine's suffering. Although the 2.0L
16V Turbo 4 is rated at 160hp new, it
has dropped astonishingly. Up until
2yrs ago it had decent power to get
around, but recently(thanks to my
neglect) it has lost alot of pep to
the point that it's dangerous. With
the 3 Spd auto; you hit the gas and it
sluggishly creep's out and will then
stagger up to speed. I have to take
caution when pulling out to not get
into a situation I can't get out of.
Take caution when buying a SAAB, they
are an acquired taste and parts are
