1997 Saab 900 2 Dr SE Turbo HatchbackReview

Original Looking Sweedish Styling — great car, good quality but little things kept breaking down and not cheap to fix - great car in driving - fun to drive

Pros: style, handling, fun to drive, price

Cons: expensive to maintain, noise interior

Sahib Is Always There. — This car may have some KMs on it, but it still runs well and is comfortable. Whatever can't fit in the other car will fit in here.

Pros: strong car

Cons: turbo lag

Saab Conv 900se — This was a very fun car to drive and turned heads. after 15 years the top was still in good condition after following instructions. The back seat is narrow and second gear short, but once the driver is comfortable with these concerns it can be a great vehicle.

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

Pros: Fun manual to drive with the top down and it turned heads! The top provided good winter season insulation. Good control and cornering. Not incredibly fast but certainly had pep.

Cons: The back seat was a bit narrow, but fine for smaller kids, cargo capacity was tight with the top but better than many convertibles, Saab 900's 2nd gear was a bit narrow. Out of the factory the mechanic had to remove a piece from the convertible top mechanism for it to operate correctly. Then it worked fine for over a decade.

Awesome! By czaplowka68

An evolution of the 99 fi rst seen in 1968, the 900, launched in 1979, makes a great classic buy. Offered in saloon, hatch or convertible forms, there’s a derivative for every occasion, prices are low... Read More
