1995 Saab 900 S 2dr Hatchback


Review

I really hate this car. It has been nothing but a lemon. I would not recommend anyone purchase this year or model. Bad transmission, bad engine, poor handling.

1995 Saab 900 SE V6 4dr Hatchback


Review

It's funny that I've read so much about the timing issues in the v-6 which is the only problem I've never encountered with this car! Back in its day day it was fast and smooth, however almost monthly I encountered problem after problem! Strut towers completely rotted out, stalling, fuel pump issues, a $500 dollar tune-up, throttle body issues, constant leaking issues in the trunk, frozen rear calipers etc.etc.etc.! Basically the car is junk now with only over 100k miles. Oh and unless a mechanic has a tech 2 scanner you're pretty much screwed as Saab made sure these were pretty much unfixable unless a dealer was involved...Long story short...Good Luck or get a BMW or a Honda!


Best Features

Nice European styling. Hmmmm trying to be nice..but that's about it?


Worst Features

Pretty much everything could have been improved...Funny though as it seemed like such a solid car?

1995 Saab 900 S 2dr Convertible


Review

I have driven SAABs more or less steadily since the 1970's. I love the feel of the car, and the used ones are cheap compared to the quality. But when I went to buy one a couple of years ago, I was warned not to buy the V6. And from the reviews here, I would say that was right advice. My 4-cyl. convertible at 120,000 miles just lost its clutch cable. Other than that, it has been a champion. I love how it corners and how it feels on the road, and I love the mileage: I get over 32 mpg on road trips and 26-7 in town. I spent $400 to get the top adjusted, and it works without a hitch now. Only problems: shift lever knob came apart, glove compartment lock failed, and seat lever cables broke.


Best Features

Steering, handling, automatic top, seat comfort, reliability and pep of engine.


Worst Features

Interior lighting, single cup holder, seat locks and cables, clutch cable, top mechanism. I think most of these have been addressed in succeeding models.

Review

I bought this car with 82K, with all the maintenance records since new. It was beautiful, but thanks to an ignorant previous owner, he didn't replace the timing belt at 60K. The engine blew, after the engine was replaced for $2200 the clutch cable went shortly after. Other than that it has been reliable for the past eight months with no problems.


Best Features

Torque, smooth 5 speed tranny, good compromise of comfort and sport suspension, nice engine sound.


Worst Features

too much torque spin in the snow: understeer, MORE CUP HOLDERS, make the parts in America!

Review

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.


Best Features

Uses regular gas.


Worst Features

Engineer a better car from the START. Poor design, poor build quality, poor dealer service/attitude. No one will miss Saab.
