Summary:

A well designed solid car

Faults:

Hand break, not working to well, other than that nothing.

General Comments:

This car is very comfortable, leather seats are nice and still in good condition for a 14 year old car. Also happy with the interior as all the gadgets work except air con but not sure why it may need refilling. This car is good for motorway cruising its smooth and not bad fuel economy and it feels very safe and stable probably quite a heavy car. Since I had the car I have used it most days and on long journeys London to Frankfurt. When driving you just don't realize how far you have driven. I have serviced the car my self when I first bought it and have only needed to top up the coolant so far.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1994 900S 5 door hatchback. I changed the A/C relay, and the A/C started working again.

Had previously changed the A/C compressor.

Summary:

Well worth the money

Faults:

CV Joint right side went out at 175000 miles.

Car makes grinding noises when attempting to put car in reverse. Have had it pop out of gear on numerous occasions.

Rust is bad on lower part of doors.

Slow to move away from stop, but passes in and out of risque situations like a breeze. Car is very comfortable and receives compliments from passengers.

Seats worn badly on driver's side.

General Comments:

Car is wonderfully reliable. Though when repairs are necessary, they can be pricey. My previous Volkswagen was forever in the shop nearly costing car payments on a monthly basis. The Saab has fewer necessary repairs and is a much more comfortable ride. Looking forward to having it until at least 350,000 miles!!
