My wife has a 96 900SE V6. She also owned a 95 900SE V6 and put 60,000 miles on it before trading it for a used 96 in 1998. The 96 year seems to be a much better car than her 95. The paint is better, and she has had no major problems in the first 26,000 miles. It (like the 95) is an automatic. We liked both cars, but the 96 seems faster and more solid. We'll get a 9-3 next time around. ---------- In article <7lun09$2rt$1nopsam1.deja.com>, ceezenopsameja.com wrote: > Hey Folks, > > I owned an 85 900S years ago and loved the car (except for the > acceleration).
