Vehicle: 1995 Saab 9000 CS Turbo 4dr Hatchback

My car is a CS model, equipped with 5 speed manual transmission and the 2.3 LPT engine (LPT stands for light- pressure turbo). The engine, with only 170hp (pale in comparison to the 225hp and 250lb-ft Aero) is very lively in the 2500 to 4500 rpm range, and is always a pleasure to dive into. The car handles admirable for what is intended as a family sedan. Response is fairly agile, and cornering is on par with many cars today. The 5 door versatility is incredible. I can fit two people plus myself and our bikes in this car with one of the seats folded flat. Even without, the trunk is cavernous.




Fine drive, but troublesome

Vehicle: 1995 Saab 9000 CS Turbo 4dr Hatchback

I have a lot of fun driving this car, although I would rather have a manual. The automatic 3spd with overdrive is very definite about what speeds it wants to shift in, and it does not downshift easily. It has not been very reliable. In less than two years, I have had to replace anti-vibration chains and gears, water pump, and radiator. The vibration problems firstwent undiagnosed, and I have had four road failures, with accompanying tow charges, half-fixes, etc. It was cheap to start, $6,000, but $4,000 later it doesn't seem such a good deal.
