Great Traveling Car. I Love It. — I love this car with a passion, my neighbors would ask me if I'm selling it , I'll say no. My gf would tell me to sell it , i tell her hell no. I am going to keep this car until it cant go no more, or god forbid something terrible was to happen to it.

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

Pros: Drives and handles great for long distance cruising.

Cons: Electrical issues.

Saab 9000 Cse — this is my dream car, have wanted one since i was 8 years old, I love everything about the car, I really don't care what breaks on it or how much it will cost to fix no matter what happens to it it will always be on the road even if i have to get 3 jobs to keep it there, the most fun I've ever had driving a car, it makes driving more enjoyable being behind the wheel of something you've so long awaited, here is my salute to Saab to having a great run, and most of all making the 9000 cse a euro tuner classic

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: every single thing

Cons: Are you joking!!!!?????

Should Drive It, But Don't Let It Live With You More Than 7 Years — good handling, but you have to understand break system, then you can drive with fun. speed respond is incredible when compare with weigth and CC (certainly, when compare with the money we paid for) spareparts are quite high, this is the main factor I don't like very much.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun drive

Cons: the maintainence  costs

Saab Is My Favorite Car That I Can Afford Right Now. — I like cars with performance and my car has some of it. Like the turbo but dislike the rust. If you´re easy on the throttle it is quite cheap. It is a good car if you want t o drive far because of the seats. Worldclass.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The seats and performance

Cons: The rust

Stylish. Practical. Brilliant. — This is a very solid, comfortable car. It feels great on the road, and has excellent acceleration, handling, and braking. The interior space easily rivals that of an Impala or a Concorde, and the 2.3 L 4-cylinder engine gives this two-ton car more than enough power. It is 16 years old and has 210,000 miles on it, but it drives like a late-model car and looks great when parked.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Why buy a BMW when you can have this?

Cons: Costly to repair

Saab 9000 Cse 2.3 Turbo — Big solid saab, nicer than the 900. It had the 2.3 16v turbo engine which made it very fast in a straight line, and was surprisingly good on bends for a big car. Lots of equipment and masculine looks but was hit with turbo problems so it had to go!

Pros: Fast and solid

Cons: Fuel economy

If You Get A Good One - Hold On To It! — It's not a rocketship, but open-road performance is perfectly adequate. Makes Max torque at 3200rpm, which is about 130kph in 5th. Which means overtaking is quite effortless, as it's all HP from then upwards anyway. Overtaking a B-double semi on the highway, going from 110 to 140+ is fast and effortless. I bought this car as a cheapie with 172 thou k's (about 107,000 miles) on the clock. It has, over the past 5yrs been extremely reliable. Uses no oil; good economy. Have replaced headlight relay switch, radiator, exhaust system over the years, and recently coolant pump, harmonic balancer, serpentine belt and coolant hose coupling. Runs like a dream again. Handling and brakes are great - this was an AUS$ 43k car when new in 92/93, and still has many safety features found in much newer cars. It's roomy (5 adults easy), has great luggage capacity thanks to hatch and split-fold rear seat; has been a fantastic workhorse for me and has taken me touring safely all over Tasmania, Victoria, Outback NSW and South Australia. It's a keeper. Interior trim is looking a little tired now, but it is nearly 20yrs old. I don't drive like a maniac, but it can be fun in the twisties and the 2.3l EFI DOHC engine likes to rev. I check and service it regularly. Oil after 5,000klm is still clear (ie doesn't go black and sludgy), so I think there's a few good years left in the old girl yet. I'm now up to 230,000k. Also not too heavy on tyres for a FWD. I commute to work, and often tour, by motorcycle, so it doesn't get used a huge amount. When I moved house 2yrs ago, I did 40trips with this car towing a trailer between old and new places. It's carried so much gardening gear from the hardware store it's not funny. It's more of a convenience and shopping trolley for me these days, unless we plan a longer trip and the bikes won't do. While a bit has been spent on maintenance lately, I figure it's still a good, solid car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Getting on and needs a bit more maintenance care these days, but still cheaper than buying a new car!

Cons: None - spares are plentiful even for a car this age.
