Bought the car with 87000 miles, a one
owner trade at a newcar dealer. It now
has 221000 and is running better then
ever. It took awhile to get the bugs
out of it. I have a local mech. who
does nothing but SAABS. For quite
awhile it had strange problems like the
auto climate control, and various other
elec. gremlins. But now is is great.
Just got new exhaust, brakes, and
Yokohama 205/60 DB s2's from tire rack.
Drives and looks almost new. I do have
reciepts for $9000 worth of maintenance
over the last 6 years, but it was worth
it, as I have had a new looking, new
perfroming SAAB for 6 years at less
then half the price of a new one.
Also, it is fast enough to scare you!
I have had this care for over ten years
and it has been an unbeleivably
reliable and trusted friend. With over
100,000 miles, it is in mid-life. The
styling is so classic that no one can
tell it is almost 11 years old.
This model was purchased as a one owner vehicle with 77000 original miles. Maintenance has been regular (replaced outer tie rod ends at 109000 miles and an alternator). Have experienced some electrical problems. Usually a one-time occurence which is difficult to track and repair. Solid vehicle and has a lot of power for a 4 cylinder.
