1995 Saab 900 SE V6 4dr Hatchback


Review

Have enjoyed this car almost every minute. Handling, styling, interior, engine have all held up in nearly ten years as the second owner. Known issues like the timing chain Saab replaced at their expense at 90k miles. Wheels tended to bend easily adding to already existing steering geometry issue. Saab makes an upgrade kit to fix steering issues. Antenna no longer retracts; air_conditioner has hose leak, but these are minor considerations and arise with any vehicle. Just replaced rear shocks at 160k. Tune-ups and regular oil changes keep engine in good shape. I would recommend a good engine code-reader. Difficulty reaching spark plugs means trip to garage is a must for routine tune up.


Best Features

Analog clock, average MPG calculator. great handling. V6 very smooth. Excellent top-end. Solid Bose audio system. 18 gallon, plastic (aka no-rust) gas tank. 31+ MPG highway, 27 city. 5-speed manual clutch still going strong w/161k miles. Dashboard controls and readouts well-placed.


Worst Features

If you don't care about looks, go with the steel wheels. If you still notice slight shake in steering while going over bumps you could probably use the suspension upgrade. Changing just the ball-joint is not an option as it's welded to the control arm.

1995 Saab 900 SE Turbo 2dr Convertible


Review

This car is great. I have had a BMW, a Mustang and other fun cars but when it comes to good looks that fit an adult, good solid OEM engine, driving fun and a lot of appeal this car really fit the mark. The car is 12 years old and looks perfect, the paint is perfect, the engine runs like a charm, and the seats are in great condition. Very little road noise even compaired to some non-conv.


Best Features

Style, performance.


Worst Features

Cup holders, these ones are not worth the space.

1995 Saab 900 SE V6 2dr Convertible


Review

This car has been a daily driver since we bought it new in '95. We have had no major problems and the car has seen tough duty here in the snow belt. Handles well in the winter, the convertible is great in the summer, good stereo, climate control. etc. It is expensive to repair: we replaced some AC parts and the tonneau cover motor, but fortunately repairs have been few and far between.


Best Features

Convertible top, traction control, stereo, reliability.


Worst Features

N/A
