I bought the car new in 1993 and now
have 66,000 miles on it. Over 11
years, I have had no major problems
with it at all and still receive a lot
of compliments on its looks and
exterior finish. I replaced the
antenna motor twice and the antenna
mast a couple of times too. Other
than that, the car probably hasn't run
better until this year. Interior has
held up very well and handling has
always been a particular strength. I
have really received a great deal of
value from this car. It has never
left me stranded.
Looks. Great handling. Nice leather
cabin. Surprisingly large cargo area
with the rear seats folded down. Radio
and head lights are turned off when
the car is turned off--a great
feature. Also, you can't lock your
keys in the car.
The electrical system seems to need
more attention than it should.
There is no other car like the Saab
900. It, in my opinion, is a very cool
looking car without being pretentious
or trendy. It's also a very solid,
well-built car that will last for 20
years. A little underpowered but great
handling, safety and front-seat
comfort. Not cheap but not horrendous
either especially when you consider
that, if maintained, you'll easily get
250,000 out of a Saab. Look at how
many old Saabs you still see on the
road. A great car made with ingenuity,
creativity and love.
