I am so sad to have to say goodbye to my '98 Saab 900SE. It served me very well, and I, unfortunately, was in an accident that totaled it. I'm heartbroken that Saab let go of the hatchback design, as I found it incredibly handy for hauling things on busy weekends, and yet having things kept private in the trunk. The handling was superb, and the seats very comfortable. I did go through a couple of periods of large expense, but then it would have smooth sailing for another 50K+ miles. It has 130,000, and I felt it could have gone a lot further.

Awesome Car For The Money!

I purchased my 1998 Saab 900 SE Turbo Covertible about 3 years ago. I have put many miles on it, both city and freeway and the car keeping on running like a dream. At this time it has 156K on it. The water pump has been out now for 5 months, and the car's temp rarely goes up. For some reason people are affraid to own these cars, but truthfully the repairs are very far apart, right up there with my previous Accord's. It is also a car you can keep for many many years, as it is always recognizable as a Saab. Love it! Buy one!

I hated to rate all areas poor but I had no choice. I was never able to get in contact with the person listed as the point of contact. I was skeptical when I saw the zip code listed for Fort Washington was incorrect. I telephoned the number but it was not a working number. It probably was a cellular telephone number due to the area code which is not the area code for Fort Washington as well. My suggestion is to have someone from this website verify the information prior to posting it on the site.

Surprising Value for the Money

Recently, my 16 year old son purchased a 1998 Saab 900S Convertible with 77K miles and a solid background of maintenance. Other that a hydrolic clutch cylinder, the car has been solid, is sufficiently underpowered for a young driver, and is a ton of fun. Since it is a manual transmission and we live in Southern California, the car was purchased for $3K due to the lack of demand. It is amazingly clean and has many of the features of my two year old E350.

My Fun Car

by from Hollis,NH on May 11, 2017

Great year round car and especially nice during warm weather with top down & sound system up. Terrific turbo, anti-lock brakes & turns on a dime.
