Don't buy this car.

Vehicle: 1995 Saab 900 S 4dr Hatchback

This has been a miserable vehicle from day one. 3 water pumps in the first 40,000 miles. Incredibly expensive repair parts. Wheels bend when you run over a penny. Something breaks on a monthly basis. Sunroof leaks, but the part costs twice what the car is worth. Engine pulleys fly off at random periods. Let us pray that GM lets this miserable mark die a quick death.




Not happy

I've had this car since new. The only reason I've kept it so long is that it is sort of a challenging game now to keep it alive. Everything, I mean everything breaks on these things. Just as soon as I think nothing else can break, something does. Just 130K miles. But every suspension piece has been replaced, including the rear axle which is easily bent. Radiator, window regulators, power steering pump, rear main seal, headliner, head gasket, clutch cable. AC compressor, fuel pump. Even the steering wheel fell apart. New parts from Saab are ridiculously expensive ($250 dollars for the headlight wiper motor). You've got to be absolutely crazy to even think about owning one of these




My 4 door 900s just

I bought my 1995 900S on the internet in 2006. The car has 92K and a perfect car fax. The original owner only dealer serviced the car for it's first 11 years. It was involved in crash and needed a fender & door. Because of this I bought the car for $1200. I bought original parts online and a local body man put it all back together for $600.00. Sure my serpentine belt let go without warning. Lucky I stopped immediately. The clutch cable also let go. I have a really good Import guy. No more dealer service.The belt job with all new pulleys was $185.00. The Clutch cable job was $150.00. Saab wanted $650.00 for the job. I am happy for a total of 2K US this baby runs strong & Looks Sharp.




Sad to see it go

My first Saab was a 98000 mile 900S for my 17 yr old son. He thought he was the coolest kid in town, and my wife and I loved to drive it too! Unfortunately, he slid into a curb and tore up the underside of the car. What caused us to total it was the air bags- the dash has to be replaced, too, a $2000+ repair by itself. We are heart broken! Enjoy one while/if you can.

I bought my 1995 900 S on e-bay a year ago. It had 86k miles, and I've put 12k more on it. I'm happy with the car. The engine gets excellent mileage (29 mpg) and has plenty of power. The handling is nimble and smooth for a small car. Some little parts have had to be replaced, such as the power antena motor and washer pump, which you wouldn't expect to have go out. I also replaced the clutch at 95,000 miles, which is to be expected. Interior is OK, a little flimsy with the plastic. For service, find a good mechanic that you trust, and plan to order parts yourself on the Internet, where you will pay a lot less than your local parts store. You'll pay big bucks for service at a dealer




Fun car to own

I bought a used Saab on eBay. The price was excellent and the car is well worth it. It handles very well, with a quick and smooth manual transmission, responsive steering, and quiet ride. Gas mileage is good Smart, stylish car. An excellent buy if you get a good used one. I can't believe I was actually thinking of shelling out $20k+ for a new car. OK, so the back seats are a bit tight for an adult. Good thing I won't have to sit in the back.
