1994 Saab 9000 4 Dr Aero Turbo HatchbackReview

If You Have Deap Pockets, Buy One... — Very fast car, looked sleek and sporty. Sunroof whistled, breaks rattled, turbo blew once $900, gearbox ended up almost losing 4th gear due to me stupidly turning the boost up too high making the automatic work really hard. I'd buy one again.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FAST!

Cons: Pricey.

Saab 9000 Cse 2,3t — It has a 200hp turbocharged 2,3 litre engine with 4 cylinders. negatiive sides, the clutch and the gearbox is very weak, it often breaks down, but if you drive it properly it won´t be any problem at all... It´s a really funny car with 200 horsepowers and a torque of 323 Newton-meters STOCK!!! so it´s really fast, and it´s also very comfortable in the cockpit area with eveterthing you need.

Pros: funny car to drive

Cons: clutch and gearbox

Pimp Mobil :) — they were 10 years ahead of any other make in there time so don't need to worry about all them new things as it already has it, its so fun to drive you can't feel how fast your going as it has dual suspension and takes corner like a dream for a 2 ton car as well. they run forever

Pros: beats any other car on economics 30 to 50 mpg if you treat them right

Cons: the front arches rust and thats it really solid engines

GuruVS19Y says:
My current daily driver is a 1994 9000 Aero and because I am a biased SAAB owner this review will be preaching to the choir. Most already know how practical it is and how fast it goes and about the great Recaro seats but many dont know about the maintenance and upkeep. I should mention that I have owned 9000s since the early 90s and there is nothing on my current Aero that I have not replaced. Like the SAAB 9000, I come from an aviation maintenance background and really, the maintenance is surprisingly similar. The 9000 is simple enough to maintain and there are lots of resources available for the shade tree mechanic. But, as with most SAABs,, these cars were not built for city driving, they are built to run on the open road and there are few cars that operate better in this domainr. The 9000 Aero is a beast on the highway with all of the controls logically placed. The operators position is optimal for long highway runs and the Reccaro seats are supremely comfortable. It is by no means the most powerful car on the highway, but in my experience few can run with it. It cruises effortlessly at 75-100 MPH+ and will keep up with or simply walk away from almost everything that you will encounter. My 9000 is a daily driver with 302,000 miles and counting. I do not drive it in the winter, it is stored and routine maintenance performed on if until all of the salt and brine and stuff are washed from the roads from late May through late October. I drive it about 30K miles per year when its is running. It does spend a lot of time down, after all it is 25 years old with over 300k on the odometer. This is largely because they dont make them anymore and it is increasingly difficult to find parts for. But that aside, it doesnt really ask a lot of the owner except regular maintenance, Make no mistake, It is no Toyota, and was not built to be maintenance free, so if you are in the market get that thought out of your head, Like all other finely tuned machines it requires regular maintenance and the 9000 is not shy about letting you know it is time. But overall, it is by far the best most fun to drive car I have ever owned. Well not as fun to drive as a VIGGEN, which is a whole other story, but I still luv it and will keep driving it until I can no longer find parts for it.
