Well, I notice you didn't say anything about "better-looking," because the newer ones aren't! I only get my info as an owner of both, but I much prefer the older ones. Are the newer series improved in some respects? Of course they are; they have the advantage of time. But they lack one thing of many older Saabs: character. I've had 3 pre-94 Saabs, and one post. Give me the older ones any day. And as for that other poster, I *have* had the displeasure of spending an extended length of time with a Sebring convertible. Looks pretty good, but when they say beauty is only skin-deep, they must have had the Sebring in mind. Underpowered, and the interior is laid out ALL wrong. No proper place for your arms, visibility is bad, even by convertible standards, and the gas requires advance notice for highway speeds. 10 years old, and my Saab convertible feels more right than the Sebring did new. Not a flame; just my $.02. Greg
