Since Gruff has now answered, I must second his opinion. The GM 900 is a good car, just like many manufacturers of the day. Your mileage is perhaps testament to a good driver rather than the engineering though. I understand you bought your GM 900 as your first Saab and loved it. As a (now) Saab lover, I would (as Grunff) advise getting shot of the beast and buy a real Saab. The 9000s and the classic 900s are no doubt plentiful where you are. Older ones (which are very few and far between in the UK - okay, so I pass a gorgeous orange 96 about a mile away on the way to work), but you might find a good "real" classic Saab to play with. The classic 900 is a great car and I really mean "great" - you won't regret buying one. After my divorce, I came down from a "better" car to a '88 Saab 900 Turbo and I got bitten. I've had two more (classics) since and can't imagine that I won't be without one for some years to come. My Orca is just <no real words to explain>fantastic</no real words to explain>. Go on Photo' - you've got to do it! Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
