1990 SAAB 900 4 cylinder from North America
A sharp car, but definitely overrated
The odometer doesn't work; will replace.
The A/C blows hot.
Lots of paint scratches.
Driver seat slightly loose, will tighten.
Have had to put on the hazards going up hills occasionally.
This car goes up hills like a slug.
Comfort is average.
Instrument cluster is laid out well.
Higher cost for parts.
No pep going up hills. My Reliant flew up hills.
This car hates going up hills - that's what happens when you put a 4 cylinder in a nearly 4,000 pound car.
This car is extremely sharp looking - a unique ride. Not a bland, dull, cookie cutter design.
This car has drawn compliments.
You want comfort and pep, buy a New Yorker.
It sucks up gas like a pickup truck - My Voyager averaged close to 30 mph. The Saab is about 19 MPG. Not good when gas is around $2.70 a gallon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
Review Date: 18th August, 2010
This review I wrote some time ago. Regarding the sluggishness - apparently, there was a part that was disconnected, and never reconnected. (Probably done when I replaced the tranny.) The mechanic reconnected it, now it flies up hills. After owning the car nearly 8 months, I am very pleased with it. I bought it for a grand (as it had a bad transmission) and spent another grand getting a "new" tranny put in. Worth every penny! As long as you get used parts when you can, and don't mind paying extra for new parts like filters and such, you will have a reliable, well made car.
