1997 SAAB 900 S Taladega 2.3L from Australia and New Zealand
Excellent, reliable and classy buy.
Mutli-stack CD player (Clarion) in boot jammed and needed to be sent interstate to be fix by the manufacturer. $800 to repair the laser.
Decals needed replacing between windows. May have been due to previous owner. Approximately $150 each.
Excellent car, with a sporty feel and luxury items.
Never had any problems with the running of the car and it runs very well both in the city and on the highway. Would recommend using Premium Unleaded, and whilst an additional cost, the improved results are obvious. Servicing is not the cheapest, however that is expected if you buy a European car.
The heated-seats are a bonus, particularly if you have a sore-back!
This car also has one of the most remarkable level of boot space for a hatchback, with the seat being able to fold down and many other features to list! Even after 2 years I am still finding nifty things that have been designed into the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just recently bought a used SAAB 900s last week. It had 95K miles on it, but engine feels new. I have just one problem with it so far, yesterday the audio system shut down on me. My radio won't work, as well as the tape player. The display screen does not recognize that there is a tape in, so I figured the tape was jammed, so since the eject button won't work, I manually took the tape out, with the help of a butter knife, but nothing changed. None of the buttons on the audio pannel work except the on/off switch that makes the antenna go up and down. Except I found out that when you hold down the Band button, "Code In" is displayed on the display screen. I have no idea what that means. I don't know how to program the little computer in there, or what the programs do. I would just like some help on figuring out what is wrong with my audio system, it gets very boring and lonely in my car without any kind of music : (
