Vehicle: 1997 Saab 900 SE Turbo 4dr Hatchback

Mine was a great car when it was around! The turbo's power is really surprising for a 4-cylinder. 5-speed is a must to keep the in-town gas usage down. Brakes are firm and responsive and do their job well. Handling could be better, as it always felt kinda heavy around corners, especially for how fun and sporty the engine is. Mine was getting rusty but lasted until 165k. Engine seized, despite taking care of it. The car was extremely lovable and fun and I still miss it. It's unlike any other car ever, and you have to drive it to really get why. It just feels kinda raw and European. It can start falling apart on you as it ages, especially the interior, but you tend to shrug it off and smile.

I have a 1997 Saab 900s manual transmission with about 90,000 miles. Intermittent issue going into reverse. Sometimes if I put it in 1st and move a few inches forward - it will then go into reverse....
