I love my 1986 Saab, but it is definitely an old car now with 211,000 miles on it. even though she's old, she still manages to act like a teenage girl. Sweet most of the time, but she can be a !@#$!. on the third fuel pump, the locks always break, some of the things have just never worked ac cruise control, but i don't care. in fact it makes me love this car all the more. its quirky and fast just like a saab should be. GM took a great brand and killed it. Long live Swedish Saabs

Mine is a 1989 Turbo. As all Saab owners will tell you, we love the car--when it is running right. But you had better be a weekend mechanic yourself or have close ties to a reliable inexpensive mechanic you trust, or look out! My 2nd gear synchro has been cooked ever since I picked it up at105,000 miles. The speedo quit for 2yrs, then fixed itself this past year....go figure. I am about to havemy 3rd (that's right THIRD) clutch slavecylinder ($1200) in 5 yrs and 30,000miles. Headliner sagging now. I hear another cv joint clicking (and I alreadyreplaced this one). Engine mounts ofcourse need redoing now. It's not too late, save yourself! Buy a Toyota!

I LOVE THE WAY THE CAR DRIVES.IT SEEMS TO HAVE AN EXCELLENT MOTOR AND TRANSMISSION BUT IT SEEMS THAT I CAN'T DEPEND ON THE ELECTRICAL PARTS.IT NEEDS REPAIRS ON THE HOOD,ONE SMALL PLACE ON THE BODY,A REAR TAIL LIGHT LENS,REPAIRS ON THE AC,TAPE DECK AND CD PLAYER NOT WORKING,AND I BELIEVE IT NEEDS AN ALTERNATOR.RIGHT NOW IT IS NOT RUNNING.NEW BATTERY BUT NOT HOLDING A CHARGE.
