2000 SAAB 9-5 Aero 2.3L turbo from North America
Never buy a Saab
At 90K miles had to replace full engine, Electronic engine control, all hoses and a bunch of other parts. Total cost US$7800.
SID quite working at 80000miles.
A series of electrical problem resulting in replacing all the bulbs very often (at least one every 1.5 months)
No help what so ever from Saab.
Not at all reliable - unlike the other Saab that I owned.
Saab company does not give a damm about their customers.
Car is comfortable and runs well (when it is working)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I've noticed that almost every one of these reviews lists an electrical problem as the cause for bulbs burning out frequently on Saabs. I do not think that there is any electrical problem at all. Rather, the lights run all the time whilst the car is running, so the bulbs are going to have a significantly shorter lifespan. This is Saab and Volvo's way of offering Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). On most other cars, DRLs are set up differently so that the bulbs will not all burn out as often. Happy Motoring everyone! =-)
