Apologies for the broad base question. I currently own a 1988 Saab 900. When purchased it was and still is in pretty bad shape. So I really do not have a good baseline to compare another car. What is with the transmission? I read for sale ads from private owners complaning about going through their second transmission. Next is what is considered reasonable for high mileage? American cars 120,000 miles is high milelage, while my current 900 odometer stopped at 208,000. Of course mileage has a cause and effect on the resale purchase price. I am open to all models newer than what I own. What engine is better and is a turbo necessary? Any advice would be most helpful. Thanks.
