There are a lot of different cars that can be called money pits. The big thing with Saabs or any European make is keeping up with the preventive maintenance. I have had a two 900, and 83 900T for over 13 years, an 87 900S for about two years and an 87 9000S since Dec. 97. My 9000 had 145,890 on it when I bought it. It now has 199,800. If you learn to do the simple things yourself, belt changes, replace rotors and pads, oil & filter changes, mufflers and struts and shocks, you will save a lot. If you don't do preventive maintenance and depend on mechanics to do everything, it can be a money pit, as can any car.
