'89 900 turbo - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I have a '89 900 turbo, got it new. Up until 2 years ago it was well taken care of by ScanWest in Seattle and was in excellent condition. At that time it had 250,000 miles on it, original turbo. Right from the start I always washed and polished it on a regular basis, so there is no oxidation. Classic body and in good shape. I made the mistake of letting my grandson have it for school. Big mistake because he has not, in 2 years time, taken care of it with the exception of possibly 2 oil changes. It now has approx. 260,000 miles on it, he is telling me that it is hard to get it in gear and makes a grinding noise when it does go in. This car was "my baby" and I am trying to decide what to do at this point. It obviously needs work. I don't know if any of you can give me any insight as to what can be expected as far as future repairs and costs or not. The upholstery needs work as well. I would like to keep her but if it is going to run me over $6,000 or more, than I guess I need to find a home for her. Suggestions? Thanks.
