Maintenance Cost:

New Second Saab — Recently acquired to replace an old Saab 900S hatchback. Very comfortable, lots of load space, performance good rather than great. Car is one owner with full saab service history. Its an Auto with leather, climate control etc. Condition is excellent for a 130,000 mile car which cost only £2100. Fuel consumption seems ok.

Pros: Comfort, good mid- range acceleration, load space

Cons: Not the prettiest Saab

Slightly Pricey, But Great Performance By Lee

Beautiful, fast, and smooth. The 2.3 engine puts out 265hp, and the turbo has little to no lag. Smooth performance anywhere in the RPM range. Read More
