Head gasket at 104k.
Headlight module around 102k.
Driver's side window around 100k.
Seats have worn badly (but wow are they comfortable).
Some other engine related module (modules are pricey, it appears).
Security system has started going hay-wire at 100k.
Like many others making posts on this list who have owned Saab's -- it's a love/hate relationship. I drive my car and all I think is, wow, I just love driving this car. But, since July 08, and after this head gasket fix (if I decide to do it), I will have spent $490/month on repairs on a car with a trade-in value of around 2k (according to Edmunds). I could be driving a brand new car.
Today, in the news, GM is saying they are selling Saab. Saab is saying they may have to file for bankruptcy - and I grow increasingly sad. My 9-5 was my second Saab; and Saab's, as I've proclaimed many times until this summer, would be the type of car I would own for all my driving days.
No more. I love them, but the repair bills are monsters. I am reading these comments to see if I should trade her in or spend the 1600$ for a new head gasket. My head says get rid of her. My hearts says NOOOOOOO. Any advice out there???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
