1988 SAAB 900 S 1.8L from North America
Saab makes quality automobiles.
Wire harness caught fire, car is now dead.
Car needs approx. $3k to be restored.
Seat belt motors never worked.
Engine is overheating - losing coolant.
Cannot regulate cabin heat.
CD player not ejecting properly.
I miss driving my Saab. It was a joy to drive, it fit all five of us. I wish I could afford to restore it.
I need help finding a replacement wiring harness, the dealership wants more than the cars market value for a new harness.
I am almost ready to give it up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Can't you just buy another 900, after all, the one you have is 19 years old!

Wow that old Saab doesn't owe you a thing. 19 years old, I know a lot of 19 year olds who have caused a lot more trouble. Give her a good burial, she's served you well.
