Review

I bought the car new in 1997. It
always has been very satisfactory.
Unfortunately Saab stopped producing
this great concept in the year I
bought it. I can´t imagine trading it
in for a nowadays car. The Audi A8
Avant showcar was quite nice, but I
heard they won´t take it in
production. Maybe the VW Touareg would
be a convincing alternative.
Nevertheless: A reassuring thought
that this car will probably run for
many many years.


Best Features

5th door offers estate versatility for the price of a sedan, powerfull engine, Aero trim looks great, here (in Europe) this premiumcar has a far more positive image compared some to of its competitors, when in Germany it only takes 1 litre every 12 kilometers at 150km/h!, comfort, safe


Worst Features

It´s production stopped in 1997. Nowadays Saab´s doesn´t offer a fifth door unless you are prepered to pay more for an also less athletic looking estate.

Review

We bought the 98 9000 off lease as we
needed a bigger car. Heard alot about
9000s and got a good deal. The car,
minus some expensive trips to the
mechanic for routine maintenance
(Typical, I found, for this car) has
been great. Fast, handles well, hauls
everything in the world - incredibly
versatile, something most euro-sedans
are NOT these days (you get it THEIR
way only). Plus, it comes optioned-
out only, so there's no picking and
choosing (like the BMW and Audi),
which helps hold the cost down on
initial purchase.


Best Features

- Size: Huge interior, esp with hatchback and seats down. - Performance: 225hp, this car cooks - Mileage: this car gets 25-27 mpg on the highway.


Worst Features

Better quality build, fewer parts going bad so quickly.

Review

Not a bad car. The hatchback feature
is great and I wish more cars had
them. This car had a new transmission
installed in September 2001 and now
needs another one (which is not
covered by warranty). All service and
parts are very expensive.


Best Features

Hatchback


Worst Features

Dealer service departments that don't always find something expensive that needs to be done.
