Well, I'm very happy with my Saab. I love the way it rides. The motor is so quiet that one thinks sometimes that the engine is off when it's on. It's a great experience to drive such fantastic piece of machinery. The style of the body just talks to you. Its' my girl and I can't get enough of her. She handles sweet and she's fast. I'm putting a new convertible roof on her and I can't wait.
I have owned this car over 13 years and can't give it up. I used to trade every 3 years, but my Saab has it all (except cup holders). Spent very little in repairs, gave it regular maintenance and it just keeps running through everything. Have hauled everything in the back including bricks, but she still cleans up like a new car. No rust (after 13 years in Indiana winters), paint still like new, as is the interior. I had to replace the CD player, and convert the air, but after 13 years and nearly 140,000 miles, I wouldn't dream of trading her for anything. She is a great work car and will drive on any terrain as long as the clearance is OK. I will drive her until the wheels fall off.
This car has been a joy to own. It has
the unique image I desire, the cargo
space to accommodate my photo gear and
dog (and now husband too), and was
tough enough to handle forest service
roads as long as they weren't
designated 4WD only. While the
clearance is low compared to an SUV,
it's high for a sedan. Other than
regular maintenance items, I have had
no extra expenses with this vehicle. It
is still very reliable, though as it
gets older, obviously more and more
basics will need replacing.

Had it since day one drove it as a
first car for 3 yrs nows its asecond
vehicle . Economical to run comfortable
to drive ans SAFE to operate in ALL
conditions . I'm a Alpine Skier am use
this as my ski car . Its very stable in
all conditions , Holds a TON of gear
and get great mileage . I'm holing onto
it tillIT DIES which may be a LOOONG
time .I have a little Sports car too
which after 2 yrs I'm trading to get a
NEW 2003 Saab
This car drives smoothly and handles
well with the front wheel drive.
However, if you intend to drive in the
least bit of rough terrain, forget it,
because the clearance is very low.
Folding the rear seats down makes for a
great deal of cargo space. The
seats are comfortable. However,
if you have long legs, you might find
yourself bumping your knees on the turn
signal lever and other obstacles.
The engine runs like a champ.
However, since this is an older car, I
have had to replace the following items
in the past year: fuel pump; clutch
slave cylinder;clutch; water pump; HEAD
