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.

The car rides extremely smoothly.
However, if you have to take it to the

impossible to repair in your own
garage. spent 3500 for the car and
about 8000 for parts and labor. Still
runs, cold starts hard, but turbo is
easy to tune, mine has 235 torque and
205 horsepower with just turbo boost,
k&n air and high octane (98 octane)
fuel, beats any civic or integra piece
of cake, even beat an 89 mustang down
a strip. Fun car for kids, just need
a good mechanic.
I currently own a 1991 Saab 9000 which I bought new. The car has 214,000 miles and I think I can say it's been (and still is) a great car. Though problem free for the first 8 years, it's now startin...
