Its A Fun Little Toy, But When Surrounded By Trucks, Its Easy To Be Intimidated. — The SAAB is just the S model, so it does not have a turbo. $20 will get me around town in it for what seems like forever. It is extremely easy to work on, and actually seems like it was designed that way. Its built like a tank, and for being 24 years old, is holding its age very well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a 900 and comes with all of the quirks.

Cons: Try to find parts easily for a `87 SAAB.

Saab 900 Turbo Convertible — Stylish, but had too many troubles on electronic and little issues. This is the car I owned after my Colt. Beside convertible, I can't think of any good about this car. I will have to say that no more SAAB

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: convertible

Cons: electronics

A Tough Fun Car — A Swedish tank with plenty of power especially for a daily commuter, turbo models are much better and funner to drive, parts are cheap and no major problems, great handling and braking and turbo makes a fun daily driver with ok acceleration.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun, safe car

Cons: need to be mechanicly inclinded to own

Retro Car Rock Solid With Bumpers That Can Take A 5mph Shunt And Not Break — very solid and strong but under powered for the size of car. I would be happier with the low pressure turbo version if anyone knows of an engine or turbo setup goin spare let me know, I`d also be interested in a draw through setup for turbo or even just twin carbs for a little more go.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfy

Cons: poor mpg

Most Fun Car I've Ever Driven — hello, this is my 1987 Saab 900 Turbo, she's been through hell and back a few times, and is still going! easy to get power out of her, and a total blast to run up and down the mountains with. seats are very comfortable, and all the switches and buttons are highly intuitive.

Pros: very quick stock, and easily modified to make a good amount of power, handles well for it's size and weight

Cons: weak transmission once you get up above 250ish horsepower
