Purchased this as my first car, 5 years ago, with 95,000 miles. Still runs strong, looks great, drives beautifully. Daily commuter, 80 miles a day, and can still do 100 mph. Great quality vehicle. Repairs are wicked expensive though, so I do most of them myself. The automatic transmission is on it's way out... the costs is going to be so much that I might have to junk the car...sadly. It should last another 2 years though and I'll be glad I had a car as reliable as this classic 900.
I purchased this vehicle in 2001 and I
have no regrets. It has been a great
car and fun to drive. The repairs are
expensive, however, most of the things
I've replaced in the past few years
were original parts. I have 220k miles
on the car--it starts and goes each and
every day without fail.
This is the last year of the "real"
Saab body style. I get tons of comments
on how cool the car looks and everyone
is amazed to find that I'm on my way to
300k. The body has one rust spot and
the paint has held up very well in
upstate New York State winters.
Electric problems--cruise, interior
The Saab 900's are great cars. Period.
The quality is the most noticable
feature. This car is sporty and fun to
drive with top of the line features for
it's time. A great car for the money.
Anyone interested in a great used car,
this is the one.
