Bought car in immaculate condition, and reviewed service records; like clock work, serviced every 5K miles.
Only thing I can say bad about it - was the driver's seat needing repair. So, having it repaired with seat matching on color with local vendor (Fibrenew) ($350).
Everybody thinks the car is new and was garage kept.
I put new Yokohamas on it and a Harman Kardon interface.
Things changed during its service history:
Serpentine belt (twice).
Brake job (twice).
Other things are normal service like filters and oil changes.
So now that I found this site - I will only pray that I will not fall under the gun with the QA/Engineering defects. I bought the car based on the history and quality/engineering legacy of SAAB.
I have only had car for 1 month. Going to make sure I use synthetic oil and baby it. I love the looks of this thing with the top down, and it is in fabulous condition.

Hoping I am lucky - not holding my breath.
