9000's are among the best deals out there right now. You can get a last-year of production (1998) or anything from the 90's and the car you get for the money paid makes it a superb deal. It's hard to understand the relatively low prices, as these Saabs are easily the equivalent of similarly aged BMWs or Audis, and even the base model (CS) has more features than the average German cars of the 90's. It is true that finding a servicing mechanic can be a challenge, and replacement parts are definitely not cheap, but there's nothing unexpected in that. Overall, I highly recommend any 90's Saab 9000 if you're looking for a (still) suberbly safe car.

This car is reliable as far as the
engine and tranny are concerned (5spd).
I like a lot of the features of the car
and the famous saab safety. However,
parts are expensive for saab's - brakes
for rear 400$, Heater fan failed,
clutch seems high, bought w/ 118k,
tranny was replaced at 80k. Handles
well and feels heavy and solid when
driving. Ride is somewhat harsh, but
