You must insist on the service records for if the oil wasn't changed regularly then the turbo could be wearing prematurely. I have a 94 9000 CSE Turbo with 93,000 miles of relatively trouble free driving, the car still runs like new and is as tight as can be. There are some things that this model is known for 1) Heater core 2) Auto tranny problems 3) Head gasket All of these problems can be prevented with some dilligent servicing. Change the oil every 3k and change all the fluids with regularity. This Saab is the best car I have ever owned in 30+years of driving, if you take care of it, it will take care of you for many miles.
