1993 SAAB 9000 CDE notchback sedan (130 hp) 2.3 Liter Trbocharged 4-speed from North America
Saab rules--because of this sedan!
There have been major flaws with my 9000--even though it is almost 12 years old.
I recently became the proud owner of a 1993 Saab 9000 turbo.
I like my Saab very much. My car was a real steal--only $3000 US needed for the nicest, yet affordable Swedish sedan. When I first tried it out, the leather look almost untouched.
I really like the interior materials. You really will not find better build quality on any other car.
It has some nice acceleration and performance from its turbo, but I do get some turbo lag in return. The fuel economy is impressive, also: about 25 mpg.
Some options on my 9000 include a power moon roof, digital clock that also displays driving information, a lovely wood trim, CD/cassette player, 4 speed automatic transmission, and Saab's innovative climate control system. As you can see, you get a lot of stuff for a little price with these Saab's.
Another thing, these Saab's are built like tanks and have wonderful crash-test results.
Not only does it drive and handle well, it looks good. It looks very aerodynamic and sleek, just like the jets that Saab also builds.
It is also a lot cheaper to run than other German and Japanese imports.
Figuring it is in the condition it is at 138,000 miles, my Saab will probably go another 138,000 miles without a major problem!
My Saab works well in the varied climate in Montana. Performance is uncompromisable during all seasons.
Looks like my Swedish relatives have built another reliable novelty!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I wonder if there is a typo in your review. You state that there were major flaws with you SAAB, yet you seem very pleased with it and don't mention any major problems. I wonder if you meant "there have been NO major flaws". Please clarify.

I was wrong. No problems with the car. It is still running great after one year of ownership...
