1995 SAAB 900 SE V6 from North America
My hobby is to get anyone possibly interested in a SAAB to buy something else; revenge is sweet
Everything; meaning, the car was unreliable, with a series of small and big problems cascading into each other over time.
I do not have the time or energy to list everything that went wrong with this excuse for a car. Suffice it to say that every time I drive by the SAAB dealership in my Acura, I (literally) breathe a sigh of relief.
GM should be ashamed of itself.
Unprintable; worse with regard to SAAB dealers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Isn't that the truth. Someone finally realizes how crappy GM is. When they bought Saab, that was the death of the company. You should try finding an older model Saab. They are great cars. Acura.. great choice. I'm with you on that.

My Saab 900 SE V6 1994 was my first non Japanese car in 25 years of almost trouble motoring. I have owned this car for seven years and it has only covered 71000 miles.
Yes, it is a very nice looking car; yes, it is very fast and a comfortable drive especially over long distances. Unfortunately it is an expensive beast to maintain, and the last two years have been particularly aggravating due to the failure (three times) of the oil cooler, which is situated between the V of the engine. This has resulted in the car being off the road for long periods, and has proved very expensive.
The only final solution to this problem was to put an exterior oil cooler, which is now placed just behind the grille. Would I buy another Saab? No - I could not afford the upkeep of it as I am now retired. I now keep the car as a second car and use it as a workhorse! And something to tinker with at weekends.
