1996 Saab 900 S 2dr Hatchback


I purchased my 1996 conv. in Divide Colorado to travel home. This was our 4th Saab. We drove south threw New Mexico, Texas,Louisiana, Arkansas, Mo. Ky. Va. And Pa. to Delaware. At times I cruised at 95-100 mph in 100 degree weather. The stability and handling at speed is better then my 2004 9-5. we've owned since new. Total repairs on the trip was 1 instrument light reostat in Sante Fe. since returning home I've replaced 1 Coil pack and the top has quit working. This is a great car for 1 or 2 people doing long distance touring. My daughter hit a concrete barrier at 70 after being run off the road in our 99 9-5. I will only trust my daughter to a Saab. Great cars with personality.

Best Features

performance, comfort, indestructible.

Worst Features

vehicles have terrible coil problems that are unacceptable. Saab should have replaced them for life for free. I understand they improved them in 2002 but I've replaced the one on my 2004 twice and carry a spare.
