Love my 1992 Saab 900S

I have owned my 900 for about 1 year now and am in absolute love with it. I purchased my specific car in Seattle and drove it almost 1000 miles home and never once had an issue. It has been a pleasure to own, drive, and even work on. For a vehicle that’s close to 30 years old and has almost 200k miles on the odometer, it still handles and performs like a dream, feeling like a big boy go-cart. Chassis is rigid and super strong, even today (if you get a fairly rust free example of course), a testament to how well these cars were built. When you look past the weirdest of how everything is put together it is a fairly standard car to work on and not overly hard. No overly complicated electronics here and it serves its purpose well, the 92’ n/a came with a 2.1L DOHC 16 valve 4 cylinder that was also well designed and built and is overall very reliable. Every car has its Achilles heel though and for the 900 it’s the gearboxes. The 5 speed doesn’t feel like something out of a luxury hatch as it does a John Deere tractor and doesn’t fit the car very well in my opinion. It works ok and if driven a certain way it will not give you many issues, but it’s no Honda tranny. If your mechanically inclined and have access to a shop, there’s plenty of upgrades you can do to improve the feel, rigidity, and reliability if you so choose. Overall, I love my car and all 900’s in general and the interior and exterior styling is just gorgeous in my opinion and is very tastefully designed. A worthy classic that you can find for a good price, the community is absolute gold too.

The 900S

The car met all my MidWest needs with heated seats, plenty of head room and leg room. I enjoyed the 3 door model in which the back seat lays flat allowing for a full sized mattress. The average lifespan for this model when well cared for is: 18 years. Mine proved just that and neared 200,000 miles.

Saab Story

I loved my Saab. Drove nicely, handled well, very reliable. Mileage was about 25 mpg. Negatives: Heat was never very hot, and I had convertible so FREEZING in winter, Cruise and AC died shortly after purchasing (car was 14 yrs old at that point). When things did break, the parts are VERY expensive and not every mechanic is willing to work on Saabs. During a winter storm, I slid on some ice into another car. Walked away with a bruise on my wrist from the airbag. THAT'S IT. Car was totaled but I was not hurt and the other driver was not hurt and only had minimal damage to his car. Very safe.
