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 canīt imagine trading it in for a nowadays car. The Audi A8 Avant showcar was quite nice, but I heard they wonīt 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.


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

Itīs production stopped in 1997. Nowadays Saabīs doesnīt 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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

Hatchback


Suggested Improvements

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