1996 SAAB 900 900SE 2.0 turbo from North America
Very Good. Great for a single guy
Ignition Cassette replaced. This was the first time the unit needed to be replaced as per the repair shop. Car runs like new and is the envy of many. Quick and responsive.
Fuel Pump Replaced. The dealer that sold me the car paid for ½ of this repair.
Problems with CD player needing to be re-set after car’s power is removed. This can be repaired by removing the CD player and disconnecting the main CD cable on the right side of the unit (you will need the CD removal tool) Easy fix however.
Understanding that all U.S. cars I have owned have had many other issues at this mileage level e.g., bearing assemblies, brakes, and fuel and water pumps. The above mentioned repairs should not scare someone away from this vehicle.
The convertible version is very classy. It far exceeds the reputation of the less expensive domestic convertibles, but not as pricey as the German counterparts.
A good handling car that responds well (especially in the sport mode). A little slow of the start (first 2-3 seconds, but revs nicely after).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
