What a great car!!!

by Saab Enthusiast from Oconomowoc, WI on Wed Mar 19 2014

I purchased this car in July of 2013 and it has been great. If you are looking for a second hand car look at Saab's they run for a long time. I have 128,800 miles on mine and I just change the oil make sure the fluids are topped off and that's it. One thing I will say about performance is that it is a little sluggish off the line with the automatic,but at highway speed its very quick; So if you can get the manual transmission. But other than that a good solid car.

A great car

by goodcarobserver from Porto, Portugal, EU. on Wed Dec 17 2014

I bought my 9000 cs 2.3 turbo, 200 hp, manual ( pre aero) 14 years ago. 2nd hand car, It marked 140 000 km's then. Very stilish , it captured my attention in a first glance. Beside some electronic issues, solved over the time after some attention from a saab private specialist, and thank's to a good regular maintenance, i can say that it's been a good and reliable car, with great confort and astonishing performance for his family-car style; in fact, it can be said that it has a double personality, capable of being a calm and smooth car, or a beast of the road when i push the throothle more hard. It's still my daily car, although it has more than 400 000 km on the counter. it appears to be undestructable, and I'm not thinking to buy a new car as long as it runs good.

Our Take on the 1997 Saab 9000

Saab's 9000 has been around in various forms since 1986, and its replacement, the 9-5, is slated to arrive next year. That's a run of 11 years, which demonstrates remarkable staying power in a period of rapid change in the automobile business.

This year is Saab's 50th anniversary, commemorating the public introduction of the Saab 92 in 1947. Powered by a two-stroke, two-cylinder engine, the teardrop-shaped 92 looked like the fuselage of a small airplane without wings, which is not surprising since Saab is an acronym for Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget, a Swedish aircraft company.

Today's 9000 is a far cry from that original car, but the philosophical underpinnings remain the same. Function takes... Read More
