1993 Saab 9000 CS 4dr Hatchback


I have had the old Saab 9000 hatchback,
the '89-'94 saloon and an '82 900 4-
door saloon. The 900 was not as
reliable as the 9000s but was a lot
more fun to drive. The only real
complaints I had with the old hatchback
were that the ride was compromised by
the hatchback design (a big hole in the
body-shell doesn't help torsional
ridgidity) and the boot-lid rattled on
rough surfaces. The saloon had neither
of these faults and the new-shape
(from '92 onwards for the hatchback CS)
hatchback doesn't rattle at all or
twist as much.

Best Features

1: Big, deep dash with matt-black finish. 2: Cavernous boot-space 3: Nice, slim grille.

Worst Features

Stronger hydraulic engine mounts (at bottom of engine on left side when viewed from front). These fail at 100,000miles and cause a jerk on sudden, hard acceleration.
