Style, driveability

Cons

High oil and gas consumption

One Of The Most Beautiful Cars In The World — Performance is bad in the normally aspirated engines, don't know about the turbo ones, gearbox is bad. Quality is fantastic, you can feel it. Everywhere else exept in the engine room. Appearance is sexy... I love its interior as well as exterior. This Saab consumes very much oil and about 10 litres of gas to 100 km average. The car is, for its age fantastic to drive. Seats are awesome, chassis unbelievable. Jus perfect toughness. Steering is great.

Swedish

Cons

no turbo

My Third Car — Swedish SAAB invented the turbo and electronical seat heater, but this one I bought did not have any of that! This car was obtained in order to let my cousin use it for a few weeks, since the engine of his Fiat coupe 16V Pininfarina had a blown up. Did a full service on it, came with new tires and most of the "worn out" parts were already replaced by previous owner. Car was running good considering the age and milage. Good car, reliable and cheap.

Saab Rules By Lars

Not cheap to run but very good value all in all. A true 4-seater with ability to cover long distances in a very relaxed fashion. Cruise contro on, top off and you're ready to travel anywhere in Europe... Read More
