Unique and Underappreciated

1990 Saab 900 Turbo 2dr Convertible


We purchased our 900 Turbo new. We soon fell in love with its unique character and special qualities. Despite driving many other cars, we still love it and have come to understand that these were very special cars. While many 900s have been neglected or come into the hands of mechanics or owners who do not understand them, they are very durable if properly looked after. They do, however, require regular expert maintenance and quality parts which are not cheap. We have always had our 900 serviced at either a dealer or at least a marque specialist and have only had two minor problems in 16 years. The best thing about our 900 is the fun we have driving it. I wish Saab still made this car.

Best Features

The car has character; this is no bland committee design but a unique and special car. The driving experiences is pure fun: it is still super to feel the turbo push you back in your seat as you pass someone on the highway, and it handles predictably with very precise and communicative steering.
