I Love It!!! — Very nice, very nice indeed!!! I drove it 55 mil non-stop and felt like a king when I stept out of the car. Quit cheap to own considering the 224 hp engine both on fuel and incureans. I ´m gonna keep this one for sure!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I like the front saets! Mainly the driving one! Beacuse I fit! 1,97 meters above ground! :D

Cons: Rust, not much but some I have to attend to!

I'll Keep It — luxurious, pretty nice looking for a '96. SLOW. wish i had the turbo. Pretty solidly built. It's older so stuff is starting to break, but that's to be expected. Supposedly it's built to withstand moose impacts, which are apparently common in sweden where the manufacturer is from. Gets pretty decent gas mileage, but expensive to repair.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice features

Cons: does the quarter mile in about 2 days

I Love My Saab — My car has 185K on it and she still flys!! I had gone 125mph racing Mustangs, BMW, and Corvettes. The fastest I ever went was appox 137mph. I cannot believe the engine is still this strong. The only modification I made was a K&N Filter last summer. The car still gets a mix loop (city/highway) of 26mpg.

Pros: Strong and Fast

Cons: Same interior since 86 model

Awesome 9000 — I love this car. It has up to par performance and awesome looks. also this car is a tank and doesnt look like its gonna break in the near future. The stock sounsystem was good, but the new 800 amps and 2 woofers with 2 more speakers sounds even better.

Pros: Solid, FAST, FAST

Cons: Electrical nightmare

Saab 9000 — Great value for no money. Confortable and economic taken size and all into considiration. No rust and effective in poor weather and snow. Engineering at its best and a product that puts sweden on the map in the carindustry. And yes - my next car is likely to be another SAAB

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Old

9000 Aero — the car is a good giggle, with current tuning has 260+ bhp which can be a handful, recommended to anyone who isn't into the traffic light gp but ikes to wipe the floor with 'the big hitters' very fast, comfortable and understated. fantastic. go get one..... you will love it.

Pros: fast comfortable understated

Cons: old, squeaky like fuel....

This Is My Everyday Car, My Hobby And So On... — This was the top of the line Saab 9000 in -93 -> -97. Interior is full leather with so called pilot seats. Exteror is just basic Saab Aero style bumpers and side skirts. When the model was first published, it was very powerful car with 225bhp and 350Nm on torque. And compared to cars today, it still is powerful, safe and amazing to drive.

Pros: Powerful, ergonomic and safe. That's why I like it.

Cons: Not really... but I can't be objective enough, because I'm a Saab fan :)

My Wife's Company Perk - She Had It For The Week While I Got To Drive It On Some Days — Nice car and built like a fighter plane inside.

Pros: loads of power as the turbo booster kicked in at 3500 rpm

Cons: apparently the company was spending a lot of money on maintaining that vehicle

1996 Saab 9000cs — This car is like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. She is a mild mannered four cylinder with 35 mpg. The next minute is a turbocharged street racer. This is no poser. Don't let the plain jane appearance fool you. 185,000 miles and still hammering. European quality and ergonomics. It is built with driver in mind.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability

Cons: I don't have a convertible like her in the garage.
