1990 Saab 900 Turbo 2dr Convertible


If you get a good one, these things will go to 300,000 with no probs, if you get a neglected example, get ready for some huge bills! The mechanics under the hood are hard to work on, the engine is rare, and few repair shops will accept them. But Walmart changes the oil for a good price.

Best Features

The exhaust note, full convertible experience (no roll bars like VW Golf), 30 mpg and very comfortable seats. Pretty reliable too, if you service it properly.

Worst Features

The 3 sp auto box couple to the turbo engine is very weak, and blunts performance. The 5 speed is much better, but requires an oil change every year! If this is not done, metal swarf will destroy it. Check the turbo carefully- it is a 2K fix, it will make a whizzz noise+blue smoke if it is going.
