Most expensive, unreliable car I have ever owned.

by Saab Story, the 1995 900 SE Turbo from O (my goodness) hio | April 16, 2011

I bought the car from my brother (never buy a car from a family member - an old piece of advice that is very true). Everything will break quickly on this car when you least expect it to break. Clutch, gear shift, tie rods, ball joints, anything to do with the front end will quickly break for you. Anything connected to the electrical system will break pretty quickly-including the major computer system, radio/cassette, automatic antenna, and heated seats. The only thing that has lasted and I can recommend is the 2.0 liter engine in the 900 SE Model. The engine keeps going no matter what, except when the belts and pulleys fall off. I have about 250,000 miles on the engine. Tune ups for this car run about $ 250. Brakes and rotors easily get up in the $400 range. And the car does not like mediocre tires so be prepared to spend about $600 for new tires. Once you have everything repaired with the most expensive parts and everything is aligned and balanced that car is very fun to drive, and can be quite speedy. This perfectly balanced state will last about 200 miles at the most, so expect about 4 hours of very nice driving. Hit one pot hole or bad road and everything will be out of balance requiring more alignment and balancing. Saab engineering makes the car look good from the inside and outside, but anything underneath or under the hood will drive you crazy when it breaks. Anyone want to buy my Saab?

Great Vehicle

by Ryan from Lincoln, NE | August 1, 2009

I bought my Saab 900SE 3 years ago and it's been a great car. The moment you sit in the car and realize the ignition is down by the cup holder you know you've found a special car. Chances are you aren't going to see many others during your commute, exclusivity was a factor in my purchase decision. I have the V6 version which sounds pretty good, yet a little underpowered for how loud it can be at high revs, the engine being at 170hp not considering age factors. Yet the car isn't about how fast it is, it's about enjoying the ride. For a 1995, you get auto climate, heated leather, a display that tells you what the temperature is outside, what your fuel economy is and how many miles you have left in your tank, unheard of features to find while shopping for a car that old. The car comfortably fits 4 and has a trunk bigger than any four door I've ever seen by far, on top of that the rear seats fold down, accommodating at one point 3 mountain bikes. Overall I'd strongly recommend this car to someone who's looking for luxury on a budget, with that unmistakable Saab uniqueness.

Saab 900 Convertible

by Saab 900S from Atlanta, GA | June 18, 2006

This is an overall great car. It looks great and is loaded with features. The car gets great gas mileage, usually 23.5 city, 29+ highway. I have had trouble however with the complex convertible top, which on this model has six motors which are used to put the top up and down. However this has been the only problem I have had with the car which currently has 108K miles. The car is a convertible so it does not hamdle speed bumps very well. Overall this is a great, well built car which I would recommend.
