An intellectual's gem

Vehicle: 1994 Saab 900 S 4dr Hatchback

You get a highly intelligent package: a very reasonable dose of sport, a cozy but pleasant cabin, and a beautiful aerodynamic back end. One huge perk is the cargo room- it's basically a wagon. Aero, capacious, sporting, the back end has it all. The car has gotten more stylish with age. Socially it was the equivalent of the Prius in its day. Then newer cars came with stubby, blobular shapes, making the Saab look long, elegant, and clean cut. REPAIRS?? Yes you will need to do them. The cost is the same as generic cars of the era plus 30%. The car is not unstoppable, but it is unkillable. After any given repair, you could have thousands of miles before your next.




Excellent car!

Great car fun to drive and quick. The one fault is the V6 engin that GM put in, because of this the timingbel has to be replaced ever 30000 miles and it cost alot!

Vehicle: 1994 Saab 900 S 4dr Hatchback

I purchased my '94 Saab in late 1996 and, ever since, it's been a drag to own. Aside from the overall sluggishness and the repair bills, the car always has *something* go wrong with it. If it's not the transmission, it's the brakes; if the brakes get fixed, the headlamp goes. Worst, however, is the interior. I paid almost $18,000 for this thing in '96 and it doesn't even have a cup holder or the very-important arm-rest. Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa. I can't wait to be rid of it, it's taken me the better part of 3 years to sell it and I'm still trying! Avoid at all costs. (And I'm a 2-time Saab owner, I know what I'm talking about). -Crash




Stay away!

I bought this car used and it has been nothing but trouble. One costly repair after another. I would never consider buying another Saab, and neither would anyone else I talk to who own Saabs. The a/c is weak, no cupholders in the car, no interior space of any kind for maps, sunglasses, tapes, etc. Very poorly designed. I recently had a 2002 Saab as a loaner and it was no better. Stay away.
