1990 Saab 9000 Turbo 4dr Hatchback


Review

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


Best Features

when the turbo kicks in at 25,000 rpm and your sofa rocket takes off to a 0 to 60 in the mid 6 range. also the timeless beauty of this car makes me like putty in its hands


Worst Features

make the small things work, but GM killed it before it had a chance. hopefully Spkyker saves the Saab

1990 Saab 9000 Turbo 4dr Hatchback


Review

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!


Best Features

Smooth turbo, nice cruise control, niceride feel. Handles well in snow.


Worst Features

Give us a break and put in a solid transmission and better clutch hydraulics!

1990 Saab 9000 Turbo 4dr Hatchback


Review

Bought this car w/ 96k miles, now has
145. Have had no major problems with
drivetrain. Airbag has had problems,
the SRS system for this year is prone
to throw fault codes. Engine mounts
will need to be replaced every 30k
miles. NEVER BUY A 9000 WITH AN
AUTOMATIC. I don't know anyone w/ an
auto that hasn't had it rebuilt (I
have a manual)


Best Features

Turbo power, decent handling. Lots of room for stuff, more versitile than a truck, lot more fun to drive. Lot of luxury, people think heated seats and defrosting side mirrors are new thing, not for a saab.


Worst Features

More availability of parts, better SRS system, lack of competent saab mechanics.

1990 Saab 9000 S 4dr Sedan


Review

The car rides extremely smoothly.
However, if you have to take it to the
shop beware! You will be in for a
scare. I have found that the normal
trip to the shop cost me an average of
$500. From the transmission, to the
engine, to the breaks, something
contunually seems to be going every 6
months. On the upside, the ride is
great. Very smooth, and comftortable.
Great luxury ride. I would just
reccomend take care of the car, or it
will take care of your wallet!


Best Features

leather, moonroof, the ride. Comfort.


Worst Features

cheaper parts...
