1997 Saab 900 SE Turbo 2dr Convertible


I have read quite a few bad reviews for this car. I only read them after I bought my second hand Saab.
Needless to say, all those bad reviews are probably form drivers who have no clue on how to maintain a car!

Best Features

This car is an excellent piece of work that gives the driver plenty of room for error with out biting off chunks from the drives wallet. Parts for this car are cheap and easy to find. DIY is also remarkably easy and straight forward those who are slightly mechanically inclined. Bottom line is, an old car will show signs of wear and tear. Certain repairs should be expected. (spark plugs, o2 sensors) From a Saab, you should never have to worry about major repairs ( except for timing belts) if you follow a regular maintenance plan. The car and the engine is a solid piece of swedish engineering. I would definitely recommend this car to any buyer.

Worst Features

The car may be a little cramped. Especially the back seats. Children can fit in the with ease, but an adult may get a little restless after 20 min. The handbrake ratchet system is a little hard but doable. The manual Gear box is a little rough, but bullet proof at the same time.
