Wasn't Looking For A Saab, But It's Good Car For The Money

1997 Saab 900 S 2dr Convertible

Review

I bought this when, after 15 years and 235,000 miles, after my beloved E36 BMW died. Having not had a car payment since 1999 - and not wanting one - I bought this from its second owner. It had 106,000 miles on it when I bought it. I was expecting it to be a slow car but, while no rocket, the car has enough power to be safe and mildly entertaining. Interior is comfortable, but not as well laid out or as well built as my BMW was. Gas mileage is in the 23 MPG range. It has a nice factory stereo system, but the old school 6 disc changer in the trunk is a bit of a pain. So far, other than a few minor issues (dash light bulbs, etc.) it has been reliable. Shifter is rubbery compared to the BMW.

Best Features

Convertible top, heated seats. The price. Saab is an orphan. Resale value is low.

Worst Features

Kind of a moot point since Saab is out of business... The cupholder is awful. It takes a bit of time for the heat to get cranking in the winter.
