That is the major problem, but there are of course some minor annoyances as well. I've had this car for over 10 years and LOVE it and will miss it. I found a 94 900S, with 41,000 miles on it. I asked my mechanic, and he said to stay away from the 94's because they had major problems. Anyone here have a 94 or know if this is true? The 94s did have growing pains, most of which were corrected by recalls and service bulletins. The V-6 engine was/is a cause of concern, too, because of the timing belt and maintenance difficulties. My '94 900SE V-6 has about 35,000 miles on it. I had all the work done on it, and it is now a VERY nice car. If you are considering a '94, check the VIN with a Saab dealer to find out if it has had all the service bulletins and recalls done. Make sure it isn't a resold "lemon." Drive it hard on the test drive. Take it to a mechanic who will inspect the individual car, not the general reputation of the model year. If it passes all those, buy it! -- John Weiss Seattle, WA
