1987 SAAB 9000 Turbo 2.0 turbo from Australia and New Zealand
A great car
Front wheel bearing.
Trip computer display (easy fix - replace light bulbs).
High beam switch (easy fix - remove and clean contacts).
Windscreen washer switch (easy fix - clean contacts).
Sun roof leaking (easy fix - blow out drain holes with air compressor).
Synchros on 2nd gear is very poor. Problem is on upshift. Will need to fix.
Air conditioning does not work. Unsure of fault.
Rear brakes rattle like maracas.
Hydraulic lifters are starting to make more noise than rear brakes!
Very nice car, always wanted to own one. Is it the largest luxury manual hatchback there is? At 227kph, it was apparently one of the fastest production cars in the world in 1986.
With hatchback and folding rear seat, it is very practical. And comfortable.
Smooth turbo power delivery, great for open road driving. Handles well on winding roads.
Lots of accelerative power yet can be very economical when driven easily.
Bloody awful turning circle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
