I recently just fixed CV joint and ball joints.
The tape player would work, but the radio wouldn't. You had to make a choice. I was fortunate though to find a perfect replacement on E-Bay for $15.
The hoses under the hood needed electrical tape assistance at 140,000 miles.
Speedometer cable broke at 130,000 miles.
SRS light just came on the other day which is a dealer project. In the car's youth, the light was on all the time. It's believed to be an electrical short. Same with the dome light right near the ignition. It's sometimes hard to make come on when you want it to.
This car handles like it's on rails.
I trust this car with my life and feel very safe when driving it.
It is an expensive car to drive and maintain, but I come from a Saab family where these cars are known to last forever. It just depends how much money you want to put into them.
It runs much better (as in better mileage and more turbo power) when given premium gasoline.
In it's earlier days I had this car past the 125 mph maximum it says it can perform. It wanted to fly.
Heated seats work wonderfully.
You can fit a refrigerator or even a good sized Christmas tree in the trunk when seats are down. It's a perfect college student car for going back and forth between home and school.
Even though it is an expense to drive this car, I plan on keeping mine for as long as I can afford to!
